Mention of the Wing Commander Movie action figures in the 'Just Announced...' section of the March issue of ToyFare. There's also a picture of Mark Hamill, go figure.
An eight figure series based on the tremendously successful video game-turned-motion picture "Wing Commander" will debut in early 1999 from X-Toys, Inc, a new company headed up by ex-McFarlane Toys execs.
I got home to a very pleasant surprise - Barnes & Noble has shipped the Wing Commander Movie Adaptation, and it will arrive at the LOAF complex (read: where I keep my Admiral Ackbar stuff) tommorow! I guess I'll be spending the night following it with UPS' knifty tracking device. No word on the other two books, but they should be available very soon.
Yep, Barnes & Noble has posted the two sweetest words in the English language: in stock. According to their web site the Wing Commander Movie novel is now available and ready to ship -- I'm giddy with anticipation waiting for my shipping notice. I'll let you know when the others come in and when they ship... Hey, bonus, they posted a blurb about the book! Check it out below... (the first one is for the guide, the second for the novel).
For fans of the wildly popular CD-ROM game and the smash movie, this handbook offers a complete guide to all aspects of the "Wing Commander" universe. Illustrations.
Fresh from training, two young officers join the ranks of a combat squadron--just as hostilities break out with an alien species. Experiencing real combat for the first time would be tough enough, but the officers face problems that could destroy the squad from within. The crew is increasingly divided on cultural lines, and the evidence mounts that someone in the unit is a traitor. As a climatic battle approaches, the officers must find the traitor and unify their crew--or see Earth be destroyed! Based on a new hit film and on the CD-ROM games.
