Chris Douglas – Human: An Operators Manual

"Imagine in this instant, your past was wiped away and any insecurity you’ve ever had was gone. What if that little voice in your head that undermines you and keeps you from thriving was torn away from you and you were left with nothing but strength and hope? How would your life change? How would your life change if by simply understanding the purpose to your fears and insecurities allowed you to be liberated from them? What if they provided you with a specific biological survival function and by making a few simple changes would allow you to silence that voice in your head and with it all your fears and insecurities?"

Human: An Operator’s Manual is a proactive and solution focused book that simplifies the psychology, science, and theory behind our survival mechanisms and demonstrates how we can change the way we interact with the world and operate ourselves. This book is a must read not only for those struggling with personal challenges but also for those desiring to optimize their functioning.

CHIEF TYROL ACTION FIGURE: SDCC Blood Drive

For anyone going to San Diego Comic-Con this year, Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles (DST) will be giving away a Chief Tyrol Action Figure for donors at the Blood Drive. Below is a copy & paste from the Action Figure Insider website.

DST DONATES BSG’S CHIEF TO SAN DIEGO BLOOD DRIVE!

Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles (DST) is excited to announce plans to once again participate in the annual Blood Drive at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con! To emphasize the importance of giving blood, Diamond Select will be donating a limited edition exclusive Battlestar Galactica Season 3 Chief Tyrol figure as a giveaway for participating donors!

Chief Tyrol has been featured on Sci-Fi’s Battlestar Galactica since 2003 and remains a fan-favorite character. The figure has been limited to 750 pieces, and will only be available through the blood drive – they will not be on sale or given away elsewhere.

“After the last three years’ extremely successful campaigns, we’re delighted to once again be contributing to the Robert A Heinlein Blood Drive,” said Chuck Terceira, Director of Diamond Select Toys. “They’ve broken three consecutive records, so we’re hoping for even more blood to be donated this year!”

In its 31st year, the Robert A. Heinlein Blood Drive has long been a San Diego Comic-Con staple. After science-fiction writer Robert A. Heinlein was ill, he needed several pints of a rare blood type. Following the illness, Heinlein created a personal rule that he would only attend conventions and sign autographs for those that donated blood. This started the Robert A. Heinlein Blood Drive at San Diego Comic-Con in the early 1970’s. Last year’s 847 pints was the most blood collected at the drive in ten years, thanks in part to Diamond Select Toys’ continued support and promotional action figures.

“We are pleased to have Diamond Select on board to support the Blood Drive. Their donation of such a limited edition collectible will certainly help the awareness and success of the annual event,” remarked Comic-Con Director of Marketing and Public Relations, David Glanzer.

To register for the Blood Drive, stop by the Blood Drive booth at Comic-Con or visit the Comic-Con website, www.comic-con.org, for additional instructions and information.

Chief Tyrol Dog Tags

The wait is finally over. The set of 7 BSG character dog tags that I pre-ordered (and paid for) in Dec 2006, arrived today.

The photo on the left was taken by Aaron of the Chief’s actual dog tags.
The photo on the right is of the QMX dog tags.

They’re not perfect. The font is wrong (look at the number 9). And you can’t tell from the photo on the right (because of the camera flash) but the dog tags are VERY dark in colour. And the chain is wayyyyyyyy too long but that can easily be fixed. Do you think Aaron will suggest I be committed if I ask him to count the beads on his dog tags so I can make mine the same length? :)

But they are the best replica dog tags that I’ve seen so far. Can’t complain when they cost less than USD$20. They are much better than those awful shiny dog tags that QMX are selling for USD$49.95 (see image below) and all the other fan made Chief Tyrol dog tags that I’ve purchased off ebay in the past.

 

Below is a scan of the Chief Tyrol ‘character biography card’ that came with the dog tags.

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: QMX BSG Dog Tags (For Sale to QMX Insiders)

The QMX Dog Tags have finally been released. These are the dog tags that they have been advertising since December 2006.

The QMX website still has them listed as AVAILABILITY – TBA. The majority of websites are selling them as a set of 7 on pre-order for around USD$104. The only place I’ve found them for sale individually is at Battlestar Online and Forbidden Planet.

UPDATE: I just received the latest QMx Insider email newsletter. They are selling the dog tags individually (or as a set of all seven) to subscribers of their email. Then they will be selling them to the public in “just a few days”.

At the start of the email it reads ……..

“Battlestar Galactica Character Dog Tags These seven screen-accurate dog tags are now available to QMx Insider subscribers and can be purchased either individually or as a set of all seven. Check out the article below for prices and links to buy. These will be going out to the general public in just a few days and we anticipate selling out on many of the individual character tags, so don’t delay!”

Then the following is also in the email newsletter ……

CHIEF TYROL MINIMATES: Available for purchase from BBTS

The Chief Tyrol Minimates are now in store.

You can purchase them from the BigBadToyStore website (and yes, they ship overseas).
Click on the links below to be taken to their website.

Lieutenant Helo and Deck Chief Galen Tyrol $6.99
Lieutenant Helo and Variant Chief Galen Tyrol $11.99

The Chief Tyrol on the right is more expensive because it is called a ‘variant’, which means that it is a variation on one of the characters already in this release. Only a limited number of the ‘variant’ figures are made and is therefore a collectible and more expensive.

 

Awww, and how cute is this? The Boomer minimate comes with a photo frame that has Chief Tyrol in it.

 

UPDATE: I found some better photos by jasontd on flickr
