Our friend and favorite fangirl Ashley Eckstein and her Her Universe brand has added two new properties to her apparel line – Doctor Who and Star Trek! (Apparently these were announced while I was on vacation, but they went on sale this week!)
In her Star Trek shop, there are Enterprise-D and Uhura uniform T-shirts, an “I’ve got a crush on Crusher” T (I wonder if she wears that around Comic-Con and happens upon Wil Wheaton what would happen…), an “I Grok Spock” T, and a “LLAP” (Live Long and Prosper) purple women’s polo.
Out of the Whoniverse comes three T-shirt styles: A “Hell in High Heels” V-neck featuring some high heels, referring to what the Doctor called River Song; a “Something Blue” V-neck with a drawing of the TARDIS and the “Something borrowed…” saying; and a scoop-neck T featuring the Van Gogh painting of the exploding TARDIS!
So jealous…heck, I’d wear a Princess Leia hoodie if I could go to Comic-Con this year…
Syfy Ventures, a relatively new division created during the rebranding of Syfy as part of breaking out of the cable channel constraints and become a true transmedia, tech savvy destination, announced jointly with actress Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano on Star Wars: The Clone Wars) during the Digital Press Tour on Monday that Syfy Ventures would join forces with Eckstein’s Her Universe brand of female genre merchandise, to produce Syfy branded merchandise under the Syfy Gear label.
Speaking of Star Wars, Addidas is apparently working on some new items in their Originals line that is inspired by Star Wars, including sneakers that look like Stormtroopers or have scenes from the movies.
Waiting for a good time to buy that classic show on DVD, or just some excuse? Perhaps the time is now. Through July 31st Amazon is currently having a Sci Fi Extravaganza, with prices up to 56% off! I’m already picking up a few items missing from my collections…
If you think you’d like some BSG merch, and wanted to save a few cubits, I’ve got a code for you. If you go to the SCIFI.com Battlestar Galactica store, select some items, and check out with the coupon code “BSGFAN”, you’ll get 10% off BSG items (excludes the life-size Cylon Centurion and whatever “QMx” items are…) This coupon code is good through April 15th, 2009.
Steve Forde writes “Go Hero is making high-end figures, collectibles, and more based on the iconic classics like Buster Crabbe as Flash Gordon, Ray Harryhausen heroes and monsters, and the original comic strip Buck Rogers!
