NBC and Syfy have just announced some exclusives for this year’s Comic-Con. While most of the items are only for the die-hard fans, two of them caught my eye. One is a “Chuck” supervisor polo from their fictional store Buy More. The other is easily the best exclusive of the bunch. It’s a “Battlestar Galactica” toaster which creates the image of a Cylon on your toast! Admit that’s cool.
Since all the items are limited, if you want either of them, I’d pre-order them now at nbcuniversalstore.com. More info on the other exclusives from “Heroes”, “The Office” and “Caprica” after the jump:
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – July 9, 2009 – NBC Universal has announced another batch of highly exclusive, special edition collectible items from hit shows such as “The Office,” “Heroes,” “Chuck,” “Caprica,” and “Battlestar Gallactica”.

Also available will be an updated version of last year’s wildly popular chrome, pop-up style “Battlestar Galactica Toaster” — which creates the image of a Cylon on toast. The enhanced, 2009 edition — the “Battlestar Galactica LED Toaster” — is also emblazoned with the face of a Cylon that has red glowing eyes made of LED lights (limited edition of 2,000 units).
