  1. Kanaan added a post in a topic: Maria from Metropolis at Chiller Theatre   

    An update to this.  I attended Chiller Theatre convention today and had the pleasure to meet Bertina Schulze-Mittendorf, daughter of Walter Schulze-Mittendorf who created Maria the robot from Metropolis.  She had several photographs of Maria which she signed.  
    Among the many celebrities that Chiller brings to town twice per year, my list was short this time around.  It was an honor to meet veteran actor Gavin MacLeod (Operation Petticoat, McHale's Navy, Love Boat, many more) and Ike Eisenmann (Star Trek II, Escape from Witch Mountain).

    I'll be heading to Chiller Theatre tomorrow in New Jersey and I'm looking forward to seeing this! A friend who is at the convention all weekend took this photo today.

    A few photos from the first two conventions of 2015, Farpoint in Timonium, MD and Monster Mania in Cherry Hill, NJ.

    Pictured first is Colin Ferguson, star of the SyFy series, Eureka and recently on Haven. You might also recognize him as the current Maytag man. That was taken at Farpoint, along with the Daleks, Han Solo in Carbonite, and Iron Woman (yes, that's a young lady in the costume).

    After that, we have Robert Patrick (Terminator 2, X-Files, Fire in the Sky, and more) followed up Christopher McDonald (Lt. Castillo on Star Trek: TNG among other roles etc.).

    And I was told that this Han Solo in Carbonite that I photographed at Farpoint convention last month was created via a 3D printer...

    Building on Joe's post above, here is a 3D printed prosthetic limb in action as printed by Albert Manero and presented to 7-year old Alex by Iron Man himself, Robert Downey, Jr.

    Hope to see you there!

    I've had an iPhone 6 for two days and love it. I also have an old iPod 4 and still use it. Evon found this case for it today on clearance at Best Buy... Very cool!

    So it started me on a search for iPhone 6 robot cases and I found this link

    And here is a carved wood style robot iPhone case

    If Joe is willing to host again, then he has my vote. Alas, I shall be out of town over Memorial Day weekend, but will clear my schedule any other time.

    Joe,

    It was great to see you (and the museum, and Santa, and Pia) this past Sunday. I hope your toothache has abated.

    Evon and I decided to drive out to the Appalachian Brewing Company in Lititz for dinner. You got us hooked! We'll save our Johnny's gift cards for next time. We still have Black Horse gift cards, too. :)

    Some pics of the Village decked out for Christmas and the R2-D2 tin bank (thank you very much!).
