Kris got word from SciPubTech on the status of the Tiger's Claw cut-away poster... very exciting.
We are working on the Tiger Claw and are in the final stages of production right now. We have not determined the final run or whether we will have a limited version of the poster yet.
Asterix sent this Wing Commander review from Clarin, an Argentinian journal).
When it is ready to ship we will add it to the web site.
Thanks for your interest.
WITHOUT ONE SURPRISE
Feeding from a mixture of old plots and videogames, Wing Commander is only routine.
There is nothing that wasn´t already inn "Flying Tigers", "The Heroic Bomber", "Shark of steel" and any other WWII movie. Take these stories to the XXVII century, lasers and all, you will have Wing Commander, inspired by a videogame that torments parents with explosions and repetition.
Two young actors from "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer", Freddie Prinze Jr. and Matthew Lillard, are pilots Blair and Marshall, who have just graduated from the Academy and sent to join a human group that are fighting against the Kilrathi, aliens that want the Universe for themselves.
They are ugly, bad and worst of all different - so nothing good will wait for them, even if the script writers attempt to make those aliens threating for the younger audience to try some kind of suspense. Without one surprise, a lot of special effects (and not bad ones) Wing Commander was a videogame and still is on the big screen. What a shame that there is no "interactivity" to make it better. Or an escape to push and exit...
With relatively little fanfare, the CIC received its 750,000th hit yesterday. You can find our tracking stats here. Here's looking towards one million.
Industry watchdog Lynn Caring reports. Children's toy manufacturer Bratjoy Ltd. is warning customers of a potential death-trap they may have bought for their children. The whole Choochi-Poppet range of stuffed toys are being recalled, after tests revealed that the substance the dolls are made of, hexaplatylonate, becomes highly explosive if introduced to the presence of banana-flavoured yoghurt drink. One accident has already happened, when a habi-cube on the planet Anhur mysteriously exploded. CIS investigators probing the wreckage found tattered pieces of Choochi-Poppet packaging, the discovery which sparked the product tests. The CIS are considering legal proceedings.
