Comic-Con Day 1.5

July 19, 2001 at 6:35 pm by Tookish  - 

[ Click to Visit the Comic-Con Website ]

Here we are in sunny San Diego (ok we’re inside most of the time 🙂 )! The Comic-Con is under way in outrageous fashion, and Lord of the Rings is all over. There are at least five different exhibitors demonstrating or offering a look at games (Decipher, Games Workshop), action figures (Toy Biz), posters, collectible figures (Sideshow/Weta), trading cards (topps), and more. Tolkien fans will sure to be thrilled with the products on display this weekend… I know Quickbeam and I are impressed! And it was pretty darn cool to pick up a free movie theater poster if I do say so myself. : )

We hope to show you some of the amazing work done by these Middle-earth mavens. I’ll be sending in some fantastic pictures of a Lurtz bust, a bas-relief sculpture of the Nazgul sniffing out four naiive hobbits done by Alan Lee’s daughter, and yes, more. Sideshow/Weta has produced figures, busts, statues of armor, helmets, shields, a bow and arrow collection, characters, and and the list goes on. Most impressive to me are the recreated settings of Middle-earth, including the scene from The Two Towers of the Argonath, a cut away model of Moria at the Bridge of Khazad-dum, Bree, Weathertop, and more.

And more and more and more!

Quickbeam and I are about to head out to our presentation. If you’re here and looking for the show we’ll be in room 6A and we start at 6:00 p.m.

Stay tuned for further updates from Comic-Con!
