Middleman Con Promos

Middleman buttons

When I heard that they were giving away Middleman buttons at the San Diego con, I asked my good friend David Oakes if he could pick me up one. He went above and beyond.

Turns out there were eight buttons, and each had a catchphrase:

  • the show poster, Fighting Evil So You Don’t Have To!
  • the Middleman, That was some fine cow squirt
  • Wendy Watson, I save the world in my own way.
  • Ida, She’s a slacker!
  • Lacey, I’ve got gluten-free bread to make.
  • Noser, Only love can conquer hate.
  • Blob, Splooorsh!
  • Evil Luchadore, Mal en una mascara

But wait! There’s more!

Middleman promos

They were also giving away fake Weekly World News flyers and a disc labeled “the official ABC family bootleg” that contains a promo clip and episodes 3 and 7, “The Sino-Mexican Revelation” and “The Cursed Tuba Contingency”. Big thanks to Dave for sharing all this! (But boo to him for keeping the cast-signed poster for himself!)

Don’t forget to enter the Middleman t-shirt contest! It ends Saturday.

Johanna, you are sooooo lucky! I would love to have a set of those buttons. Please let us know if you find out they’ve become available to purchase.

And even maker of MiddLEGOmen:


But the cast poster is mineminemineminemine! (Even if it does say “To Johanna” at the top. I can own that. My middle initial is J.)

I managed to pick up that “Weekly World News flyer,” but totally missed everything else… dang.

Johanna writes:  

I got the WW flyers, but I’m afraid to try to scratch them. What happens?

David Oakes writes:  

I have no idea what happens. That’s why I got you two.

(Yes, I am getting a “reading copy” of a booth give-away. Comic-con does things to your mind.)

Johanna writes:  

And I appreciated your thoughtfulness. I also couldn’t quite figure out what to scratch. It didn’t look like your usual “shiny box here” rub-away.

David Oakes writes:  

I think it is her entire body.

(And gosh, if I have to rub Natalie Morales all over to get to the truth, by golly, the truth is worth it.)

Set and spike!
