I’ve said it a million times and I’ll say it a million more: Filsinger Games fans are the greatest in the galaxy. They are proving it yet again by not only organizing but also supporting an incredibly ambitious effort to bring Champions of the Galaxy to life.
This is an amazing venture. Jeff Gutherz and Todd Joerchel mentioned the idea to me last year at a convention in New Jersey and I said, “Okay, sure, why not.” I didn’t grasp the significance of it the way they did.
Champions of the Galaxy has been around since 1986 and to see it come to life as reality is pretty incredible. I’m thrilled to report that the kickstarter effort organized by Jeff and Todd is marching to the goal of $7,500 and we’re hoping to surpass the goal because extra money means a better show and more bonus stuff.
We’ve already got three great independent wrestlers cast as Champions of the Galaxy icons with more announcements to come. There’s Chuck Taylor as Thantos, Orange Cassidy as Star Warrior, and Alex Reynolds as Wolf.
The event will take place in Jamestown, New York on July 11 and will reverberate throughout the professional wrestling world. A threshold will truly be crossed when wrestling’s greatest game, Champions of the Galaxy, comes to life for the first time. As the creator of this game universe and characters it is very rewarding to see such energy and enthusiasm.
Randy Grey is a wrestling promoter in Jamestown that is also helping to make the event possible. Everyone is helping, including charismatic ring announcer and one of our greatest fans, Louden Noxious.
I can only say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to everyone that has contributed anything to make this possible. I can’t wait for July 11! That’s GalactiCon weekend and it’s our 25th con anniversary so needless to say this is the best one ever!
Oh yeah, almost forgot, to help us fund this amazing project and make it better go here!
Until another big game fan, Daniel Bryan, shows up at GCon to participate in COTG: LIVE EVENT…
