Someone over at Dan's Wing Commander MESSAGE BOARD apparently called X-Toys to ask about the figures. They should be available in Walmarts and possibly Toys R Us's, as well as the previously reported software stores and comic shops. Apparently X-Toys is going to wait to release the vehicles (Rapier & Dralthi) until fall, to judge whether or not there's a market for them. I'm going to try calling them tommorow and getting some information... wish me luck!
Anyone out there attending Austin's South by Southwest film festival on Tuesday, March 16th can hear Chris Roberts speak at 3:00. I'm actually going to Austin and leaving right before that! Damn the luck...
Celina Tam has found two mentions of Freddie Prinze (Chris Blair in the movie) in recent magazines. The first shot is from the March 1999 issue of Teen and talks about his zodiac sign. The second is from the March 1999 issue of YM and gives a postal mail address to contact him.
On Friday IGN reported on the Movie site opening here. Generally it's a pretty clueless news brief. Most of the stuff they claim is new was reported here and at Dan's weeks ago. They even say they were the ones who made the trailer available. While I'm mentioning the trailer, there a three other news sites we never got around to crediting for mentioning it: Regenerated Forces, Wrecking Crew and FreddyPrinzeJr.com.
