Happy Sixth Birthday Wing Commander Movie!
Six years ago today the Wing Commander Movie stormed theaters across North America. Hades was here to deliver the announcement, because LOAF and I were in Austin for the premiere.
Although not everyone gave the picture glowing reviews, the film contributed to our community quite a bit. I've met many fans who say they were introduced to the series thanks to the Movie. We also got an exciting set of novels that we're still hoping to see completed. A plot synopsis is online for the unreleased third chapter. The eight action figures made Wing Commander toys a reality. Only prototypes of the vehicles were made, and LOAF and Joe own the only two that exist. The Movie based ride never came to be because its producer fell on hard times, but they've recently reemerged and we've tried to contact them for an update. The Nostalgia Factory still sells posters and press kits for Wing Commander. It's hard to believe so much time has passed. Can you believe the Movie only just made its debut in the United Kingdom two months ago?
