Darth Sidious action figure (link roundup)




Darth Sidious will be one of the figures in wave 8 of the Clone Wars action figures, available in early 2010. You can see the other figures in the set here. Anyone know who sculpted the figure?

And a few more links:

1. Chris Lee, writing for the LA Times, describes the unusual process Wes Anderson used to direct Fantastic Mr. Fox:

Moreover, Anderson had no idea that his ignorance of stop-motion (the animation technique in which a stationary object is moved in small increments between individually photographed frames) and exacting ideas concerning the film's look would so exasperate his crew.
Read on. The extended trailer made the movie look absolutely horrendous. Via.

2. Photo of a bulldog on a skateboard. Via.

3. Sith Lion.

  1. You think the "Fox" trailer looks horrendous? It think it looks GREAT! It's a throwback to an older style of stop-motion in the 50s and 60s--almost Gumby-like.

    I guess ya can't please everyone!

  2. I didn't like the (intentional) jerky look, didn't like the characters, didn't like the plot...
