BattlestarOnline Launches New Website Offering Merchandise Based on the Award-Winning TV Show Battlestar Galactica
BattlestarOnline.com recently launched providing Battlestar Galactica fans a website dedicated to merchandise based on the hit Sci-Fi Channel TV show. The website features an online store with over 140 products in nine categories plus fan related activities such as news, forums, weekly polls & podcasts.
Battlestaronline.com founder and operator Jay Langston, a fan of the show that now boasts a Peabody Award and was recently named Time Magazine's Best Show On Television, searched high and low for a site that was exclusive to merchandise and news and could not find what he was looking for.
"As a fan of the show myself I knew there was a consumer need going unfulfilled and I was determined to do what I could to serve this fast-growing fan base," said Langston.
Battlestar Galactica begins its highly anticipated third season on October 6, 2006. This will be a banner season for the show that has aligned itself as a major player in the 2006/2007 television season.
Officially launched early August 2006, Battlestaronline.com serves the needs of the ever-growing fan base with a huge inventory of merchandise all related to the show and news from the program and companies producing merchandise as well. Rather than roll out with a small inventory of goods, Langston jumped into the Battlestar Galactica arena with both feet. Battlestaronline.com launched with over 140 products in nine categories. Fans and collectors can purchase books, DVDs, trading cards, gaming cards, toys, apparel, magazines, comic books and official show memorabilia.
Other sites may carry similar products, but no other website carries Battlestar Galactica merchandise exclusively. Battlestaronline.com brings the best combination of online shopping and fan related activities found anywhere on the web. Fans can take part in online discussion forums, weekly podcasts and polls or visit the links page with the largest collection of Battlestar Galactica related pages, from blogs to podcasts.
Besides offering news and merchandise from the largest suppliers like Hasbro Toys, Art Asylum, Majestic Studios, Dynamite Entertainment, WizKids Games and Rittenhouse Archives, Battlestaronline.com has a line of thirty proprietary products. These products are based around the infamous Colonial Viper starship and are available in conjunction with CafePress.com.
