http://greymattre.livejournal.com/145099.html – besides photos of zombies lurching about at the con, you’ll find a shot of Ben Browder with his hand up a Muppet ;) Text on the ‘gates: “Besides those mentioned above we also went to the Stargate and Stargate Atlantis panels and were richly rewarded with goofiness and juicy news about the series.”
http://www.alanirwin.com/blog/2007/08/02/san-diego-comic-con-2007-day-2/ - One of their new projects is called Puppet Up!. It’s an improv show using puppets where you can watch the puppeteers doing their craft. A video camera captures the standard puppet show view and displays it on the big monitors. But, watching the live puppeteers provides another level of entertainment. It was amazing to watch. And then they added a sci-fi component! They brought in Ben Browder an audience volunteer for an improv piece.

Although I didn’t attend any of the presentations, I will admit to standing in line to get a few autographs. This is Amanda Tapping, one of the stars from the Stargate franchise” Go to URL for photo.

http://starhunter.blogspot.com/2007/07/these-are-my-observations-from-comic.html – “MGM had a unique gimmick to promote Stargate: Atlantis. The water bottles that were sold at the concession stands inside the convention ctr were relabeled as official Stargate:Atlantis water. The label had the cast pictures and the location of their booth which were handing some interesting swag among them a cheap flashlight keychain, a henna tattoo of T'ealc's forehead brand, and gifts like Steph's autograph cap.” And “For the first time, the convention shuttle buses had those ads plastered on their sides advertising the release of the Stargate movies coming out on dvd, .. “ This person also noted The con drew 27,000 more fans this year than last from 123,000 to 150,000. Yikes!
http://jadexanadu.livejournal.com/1572.html: “Stargate/Stargate Atlantis: These panels were back to back, and are always fun to attend. They playfulness of the panelists with each other and the audience is always great. Though, they aren't big on giving out information. They run a trailer at the beginning of the panel, and then just jump into questions from the audience. I was 15 minutes late to Stargate SG-1, since it overlapped Shonen Jump, but it apparately started late and I only missed the trailer. The two direct to DVD movies will be out in the Fall 07 and then Spring 08. The Atlantis panel was filled with much of the same hi-jinks as SG-1, as half the panelists and most of the audience stayed for it.”
