PostSubject: TIG's Own Limelight!    Sun May 15, 2016 11:39 am

This limelight will attempt to showcase some of the cool TIG promo items we've had over the years   Stormie Smiley


Please add your pics too!


Way back in 2009, this was the banner used for the weapons site. We changed it a while back but still kept some of the old design.




I have a feeling the same design was also used for the forum too? Anyone remember what the original forum banner was unsure Stef found these two and I seem to remember them being up at least for a short while:







TIG has its very own mascot - intrepid imperial explorer 'Tiggy'.





TIG Celebration badges.






TIG celebration pass.






TIG Tee-shirt designs

Awesome idea Paul. I think I still have a pic of the recent shot glass somewhere, I have the TIG vlix from the archive we did a drawing for Larry with, and I have some other black and white badges for comic con also. Will try to get those pics up when I can.

Some shot glasses I had made for the 7 for 7 contest:











NYCC badges that John made (these are from his thread but I have these badges)

The TIG archive vlix I won in a drawing to help another member.

I was inspired by Roger and some of the others who 'shot' their shot glasses pics with figures in background Stormie Smiley

Your pics are cool, they show all of the glass. Glad you added the Vlix, funny seeing that again I'd forgotten all about it. I wonder what other goodies are coming up later this year thinking

Since the reveal has been done, might as well add these. Once guys get them in hand you guys can add pics to this thread and I can get rid of these pics.

Stef found two old forum banners.
They were used briefly in late 2012/early 2013 before we started adopting the current banner format.
Don't know who made these two.







And here are just a few of the many banners that followed:



Made by ChrisB.




Made by Hyver.




Made by Ozio.




Made by Ozio.




Made by Ozio.




Made by Thargoil.

Hope I don't get in trouble for sharing these. For the recent convention tig got offered to take part in a multi patch handout thing. We knew a while back we were doing it, but time constraints had the patches arriving in hand just days before the convention to the guys who were handing them out. The mods and admin put our money in so the site could be recognized. For taking part I was proud to be able to acquire a set. Now these pics aren't the best but here is what arrived to me recently:





I put a han Hoth next to it as the figure was handy and i wanted to show scale.

Btw, the figure image we sponsored was Leia, for most of us it was a nice tribute to the late Carrie Fisher, I think one person may have wanted that figure for a completely different reason....
lol!  lol!  lol!  lol!  lol!  (Sorry John couldn't resist) lol!  lol!  lol!  lol!

That's a really cool patch set Bryan!
Realised we haven't got any TIG fullsize blasters in here yet, so here are the two I have.

Love it all. I really wish that I'd picked up them full size blasters, think they would look great on the wall of the office (collecting room).

Nice blasters Paul, I forgot we didn't put pics of those in here. I will have to get a pic of the palace blaster thrown in here. That's the only on i have, but it sits front and center in my display case.

Most of these were limited prize things or handouts for conventions. Someone may have some that you can grab if you make a want to buy thread. I can say the Lego pins we don't have extras and I don't even have any, the shotglasses I didn't order any extras so only those winners may have them, the blasters were a purchase item that sold out but we did do a number of them so maybe someone would be willing to sell, the latest patch was in conjunction with a group of people so we only sponsored the Leia and we don't have extras of those either.

In other words I've totally missed the boat on all of these. Haha no worries. I suppose I'll wait on the next cool creation.
