    OK, anyone got any good caps of the "Top Gun" stein? Doesn't seem like it will be too hard to replicate other than the top... Did it appear to anyone else that it was a F-18?

    that what was an F-18?
    the logo on the one side was a skull with a knife between the teeth, with the BSG patch design on the other side.....
    the top was a regular stein top, infact, it was just a regular stein...lol....

    Uhm... No... The top was not a regular top, there was a aircraft of some flavor. Seemed to be a F-18. Watch it again. Anyone with a cap?

    You can't quite read the scroll, perhaps it's the names of those pilots who earned the stein the past.

    Actually there are a number of intriguing props in this ep... first there's the photo of the mystery girlfriend whose name nobody can remember


    [​IMG]

    And what's this... a MAGAZINE?. :confused

    It may be that "the world is over and the war is just begun", but the new issues of "NYMPH" just keep comin' out regardless. :rolleyes

    Note the cut corners. But TELL me that's not a publicity pic of Tricia Helfer on the cover. :lol

    Thanks man... Agree on the scroll of names. Unless this shows up again you could put almost anything on there and get away with it. ;)

    Is it just me, or did they have new flight helmets this time? I never noticed the chin lights and extra detailing before.

    Compared with the "old" helmet (these grabs are from the miniseries)

    Blooper: despite the fact that Starbuck and Kat are both flying Mark VII Vipers, the stock footage launch tube sequence shows a Mark II. :$

    [​IMG]

    And is anybody else tired of that gimmick of opening shot followed by "93 hours earlier" or whatever... :rolleyes

    It was cute the first couple of times...

    To me it kinda looks like the new Viper except for the litte tail thingy on the end. Still probally a normal Stein.

    That sure looks like a match to me. This has to be a new record, only a few hours from air date to prop ID, with source and avialibility.

    Yes. Was going to post the same thing myself.

    While you're capping...check out the shot immediately after the launch tube. The big rock in the foreground that's only there for 5 frames or so.

    Before I say why, I wanna see if you see what I do. ;)

    The NYMPH magazine belonged to one of the pilot's that died. It was in his possessions when they cleaned out his bunk. It was a "new" magazine to Hot Dog but I didn't see it as a newly printed mag.
    The cover image does seem to be Tricia Hefler.
    Looks like this publicity pic:

    Anyone notice the original BSG Landram near the mining ship at the very opening shot?

    The aircraft on the top of the lid is an F104 Starfighter. Cheesy.

    Nope... Definately a F18. Notice the horizontal stab on the F104 in the picture below and that of the F18 posted earlier. Match them to the screen shots (borrowed from Karl's post). If anything... the stein lids are made of pewter so the prop guys could have modified the topper a bit. It does appear that the wing tips may have been possibly shortened a bit.




    Notice the angle of the stabs?
    [​IMG]

    A match for the image on the right.
    [​IMG]

    The F104 has perfectly flat horizontal stabs.

    WELL.. That was quick, I posted this LATE last night not expecting to see it solved so soon. Does anyone here have the ability to imprint mugs??? Thanks wuher da brewer... :thumbsup

    They're at least keeping alive the tradition of massively reusing stock footage of vipers flying and launching like they did in the old series.

    That was one of the cheesiest parts of the series... :lol I think they must have shot only one episode of scenes and just reused them over and over, reverse the negative and reuse over and over... :lol



    Back OT:

    Anyone here print on mugs?

    Yeah that's exactly right... big monies were put down to do the original three-hour "TV movie" episode of Galactica ("Saga of a Star World"), and effects were done by the legendary John Dykstra, who had just come off of Star Wars (ANH).

    Pretty soon more TV movies were in the works, and suddenly they had a WEEKLY series on their hands... well it was just too much pressure, and not enough money, so they had to just crank it out as best they could... getting by with the same stock footage most of the time, only filming a new shot occasionally for specific needs.

    But that was the way it was done back then. Ten years earlier, Star Trek (TOS) had the same problem with lack of time and funds, which is why footage of the pilot version Enterprise (which has many visual differences) is seen every week during the run of the series, mixed up with shots of the "production" miniature. :rolleyes

    There is even a bump in the rock where the top guns are.

    CafePress does custom tankards, but not in that style. Isn't it possible to get custom graphics printed via inkjet transfer on a tankard with a compatable surface?

    As far as new helmets go.. did the pegasus use the new style helmets. ?

    The older helmets probably work on a different frequency and dont use the computer technology with the old systems of the old fighters..I am totally just making that up.. but it sounded good.. ha ha..

    outta all the things to spend money on.. they redo the helmets.. its a good sign.. meaning they got a budget..to do that sort of thing..
