  1. Depending on how the figure turns out, anyone else smell a 1/6th scale John McClane custom?
  2. things were worse here in the UK. The bridge playset was released, but when the figures came out here, no figures came with bridge parts at all. It made the playset pointless.

  4. Dunno if it's appropriate to post here, but anyway: I've got this new blog I've started. It's called Indy's Temple and I'll be covering pretty much everything in the world of Indy. From toys, to books, to the movies and even the TV series plus loads more. http://indystemple.blogspot.co.uk/
  5. There was more to Scramble City than just one part. It was the Japanese 5 part movie. As I said in my previous post, Toei somehow lost the remaining 4 parts, so they hastily cobbled together a 2nd part that was made up of toy commercial scenes that were overdubbed by the Japanese cast. It IS officially part 2, but again, like parts 2-5, it's in some Japanese TV show's warehouse somewhere for all we know, or in some collector's attic. If it was only one part, then why were Convoy and Megatron alive by the end of part 1, yet no longer around in 2010? Answer: Scramble City was to explain that
  6. There is. Scramble City was the 5 part cartoon made exclusively for Japan in place of the movie. It was designed to lead directly into 2010 (season 3 of the US toon) and would have the creation of Metroflex (Metroplex) and Dinosaurer/Dinobase (Trypticon), as well as the transition from Convoy and Megatron to Rodimus Convoy and Galvatron. However, most of Scramble City is now lost or destroyed for some reason and only part 1 has actually been found.
  7. The top one is british and rare as hell, the bottom link is the australian version. The UK version has nothing for it's special features which sucks, no trailers, no commercials, no TV spots...hell no interviews. The australian version has Scramble City, Flint Dille interview, TV Spots, Trailers, The Touch music video, Peter Cullen interview and a BW episode
  8. Picked this up from Memorabilia yesterday. Art was done by UK Comic artist Lee Bradley with colouring by Liam Shalloo. - £10 direct from Lee Bradley.
  9. More pics: Jacqueline Pearce Autograph (Serverlan from Blake's 7 and she was also Mrs. Annabelle Levi in Young Indy Chronicles, Paris 1916) - £15 Custom Indy cushion - £15 Complete set of KOTCS trading cards - £2
  10. I was at the UK Memorabilia Show yesterday at the NEC. Pretty damn awesome for a UK sci-fi, comics and collectors show. While there, (dressed as Indy no less), I got some Indy scores: 12" Cairo Swordsman and Mutt - £25 for the pair 1992 Horizon Vinyl Henry Sr model kit - £20 Handmade Fertility Idol (damn heavy too) - £10
  11. I went down to my local comic shop today as I'd heard that UK comic artist Lee Bradley was in town doing custom artwork for people, signing stuff and general meet and greet on stuff. I'd sent in a request on the comic shop forum for some Indy art. I was kinda expecting him to do some kind of generic, yet awesome Harrison Ford style art. However, when I got down there, he was working on my piece and this is it: he explained that he wanted to get into the character and show it. His art is always one off when done at cons.
  12. what you can do to stop that happening is sand the joint down a little bit. That removes the top layer, but still gives it plenty of room to work. You can paint over it then
  13. yeah, the minecart and young indy are well known. but here's some more: prototype Sidecar for the bike proto Simon Katanga Young Indy Proto Mine Cart Proto
  14. It's been a while, but here;s some new customs: LBC Venice Indy Head: LC Indy Torso: LC Indy Rest: LC Henry Sr Tough Sergeant Head: RoC Zartan Torso: ROTLA German Soldier Arms: KOTCS RPG Indy Rest: German Soldier
  15. For those that might be interested in the origins of Star Wars day and the famous phrase, it apparently stems back to hen Lucas was promoting Star Wars on German TV and to close his interview, he said "May the Force be with you", yet the translator mistranslated it as "Am 4. Mai sind wir bei Ihnen" or loosely translated "May the 4th be with you"
  16. I'm a member of the Raider forums and I've had the pleasure of chatting to Jamie Benning about this documentary. He was a great guy to talk to and very knowledgeable about this. He's really devled deep into the ins and outs of making Raiders
  17. Maybe it's just the high adventure fan in me, but I really loved Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. It was just like an interactive movie
  18. I was browsing the UK news websites today and I came across this article which shocked me: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2086310/Richard-ODwyer-extradition-Student-faces-10-years-US-jail-echo-Gary-McKinnon.html

  20. UK paper The Daily Mail reported Harrison Ford gave an interview with ExtraTV about Indy V here's what they had to say: Most 70-year-olds are starting to take life easy, slow down and take stock. ...Unless they're Harrison Ford of course. The Hollywood OAP is set to dust off his whip and don that fedora once again to play Indiana Jones in a fifth film. Ford is currently 69, but will have become a septuagenarian by the time filming starts late next year. The grandfather-of-three recently hinted he would like to reprise the role. In an interview with ExtraTV he said: 'I have strong ambition to do it while I'm still alive. 'I'm available, I'm not cheap, but I'm available!' Now director Steven Spielberg has confirmed that George Lucas is penning the story for the next installment. 'George is working on Indy V,' Spielberg told Empire Magazine. 'We haven’t gone to screenplay, he’s working on the story.' Ford last played the daredevil archaeologist in 2008's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Spielberg told Empire he was 'very happy' with it, but sympathised with people who didn't like the 'MacGuffin.' 'I never liked the MacGuffin,' he said. 'George (Lucas) and I had big arguments about the MacGuffin. I didn't want these things to be either aliens or inter-dimensional beings.' However, the ET director did own up to one thing. 'What people really jumped at was Indy climbing into a refrigerator and getting blown into the sky by an atom-bomb blast,' he said. 'Blame me. Don't blame George. That was my silly idea.' Ford shows no sign of retiring any time soon. He joined Daniel Craig and Olivia Wilde in this year's sci-fi-meets-Western thriller Cowboys and Aliens. He also married long-term girlfriend Ally McBeal actress Calista Flockhart, 47, in New Mexico last year. The pair met at the Golden Globes in 2002.

  21. Chewie hugs the staff http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zdrxrE8MHPk&feature=relmfu
  22. Another couple of commercials to add: R2 finds love http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_XzrdGvhJI the original advert
  23. I really don't think it did the franchise a disservice at all. The movies follow the themes of the era. Raiders, Temple and Crusade all follow the formula of the adventure movie/serial. It's like Zorro, Secret of the Incas, The Mummy et al. Crystal Skull changed things being set in the 1950s. The big theme of the 50s was sci-fi and daikaiju. I really don't think Indy meets THEM! would have worked, so they went for the most logical option and having the idea of Indy and little green men. Ancient Aliens is also a very common conspiracy theory these days. There's been many books based on the idea that aliens visited ancient cultures and civilizations and helped them in every aspect of their lives, helped them build things and left.
  24. 10 figures I wanna see? 10 - Dash Rendar 09 - Luke Skywalker (SOTE outfit) 08 - Kyle Katarn (original) 07 - Mungo Baobab 06 - Admiral Screed 05 - Governer Koong 04 - Chewie as Snoova 03 - Rookie One 02 - any character from the holiday special. (who wouldn't want grandpa itchy, lump and malla?) 01 - proper release of luke's tattoine friends (windy, deak, fixer, cammie) others (not on the list) Jan Ors Ru Merleen Heater Lord Tion
  25. I read some sad news this morning. Margaret Tyzack passed away this morning aged 79. Many of our UK members would probably remember her in such TV shows as I, Claudius, The Forsyte Saga and Eastenders. She also appeared in several movies including 2001: A Space Oddysey, Match Point and A Clockwork Orange. But of course, many an Indyfan would recognise her as Miss Helen Seymour. Indy's tutor from The Young Indy Chronicles.
