Greetings fellow warriors,
Some of you may know me from ASAP, and a few of you may have met me at Galacticruise, Galacticon, or at the Twenty Yarhen Reunion. Ever since the original broadcast, I have been a fan. While I have enjoyed the new series as well, I will always prefer the original series. I have a number of prop and costume replicas, including a lot of prop items I still have to build. Ditto with various model kits. I am also fortunate to own a few original screen used prop and costume items. I hope to make a fan film with friends at some point.
I am glad that a group of this type has finally been started.
Hey I Dale from ByYourCommand.net a Cylon builders forum site. I live in Sacramento CA, and have a nice collection of screen used pieces from the 78 series. The latest piece on a 4 month stay is a gold Cylon.

Loved TOS Galactica more than Star Wars as a kid. Was one of the first mid-west costumers to do a TOS Galactica warrior uniform (thank Mom!). During the 1980's I was heavily involved in the Galactica fan fiction scene doing illustrations and the occasional story work with Clean Slate Press.
Now I manage a small special effects shop in Minneapolis (Minnefex Inc. http://www.mnfx.com) and am trying to get a television show off the ground called Transylvania Television (www.transylvania-tv.com). For Sagan's sake... visit our website and WATCH our show! Warning: some of our show is not worksafe and even though it's all puppets it is NOT for kids!!! Then join our FAN PAGE on FACEBOOK! Woot!
You'll come to know me very well if you are looking for replicas of the more obscure props and such from the show as I'm one of the few people out there doing it. I try to make good stuff for decent prices... don't get me wrong, I want to make money, but you make no money when nobody can afford your prices! So I try to make what I do affordable for just about everyone. That means putting in a lot more work than I get paid for. But its all about perpetuation of the coolest show on earth (or Caprica)!
