News on the upcoming John Carter Game from Modiphius 

Modiphius has a new online magazine covering their products, as well as the creative process of getting there.  Issue #1 of Modiphia has a detailed look at the sculpture of the John Carter figure from the upcoming game.   I’ve clipped a couple images from the article. You can see that they have cast their net wide in collecting reference material ( but none of my John Carter art, damn ! ) including the image of Thark rifles to the left from the John Carter Movie art book. I’ve also attached a look at Carter’s accessories. You can download the whole thing HERE at their home site. I’m really excited about the game, or the figures anyways ( I’m seriously ‘Game Impaired’)  but I really want a shelf full of John Carter characters. – Jeff

Tarzan Swing– but I got here. Life has been, involving….. I did see The Legend of Tarzan a couple of weeks ago. We did the big IMAX 3D nicey nice seats thing. Just trying to do it right. Right off the bat – I loved it. I was expecting it to be good up front (more…)


Swords and Planets and May the 4th

When I first saw this still from John Carter I had a niggle in the back of my brain that I’d seen something like it before. I had a fun summer as a doorman at a big downtown theatre showing Return of the Jedi ( and only Return of the Jedi) in 1983. I ended up standing in the back row of the theatre the first time I saw the movie. It was a sneak preview and (more…)


Andrew Stanton’s ‘John Carter’ talk at Google.

 

I don’t know how I missed this, maybe it was more “I’ll watch it later” than missed, but I’m glad that I finally caught up with it. Some of that would be reminiscing the good old times, but it was fun to hear a new take on the production as well. I still want my Woola stuffy, but I am grateful the movie exists at all. – Jeff
