Hey, if you’re following me on this account, you’re doing it wrong. Here’s my new account. I can’t delete this one for various reasons. Thanks!
bogleech asked: I don't know if anyone has asked this and they probably have but does Dinodrac transform into a bat, perhaps out of an eye for traditionalism, or does he transform into a bloodsucking pterosaur?
This is an excellent question! The pterosaur idea is amazing, but I must admit that I haven’t given this much thought. If pressed, I’d see him more as a bat that somehow retains the dino-head. (But Jason, the artist responsible for the logo, will *immediately* draw the pterosaur version if he hears this theory.)
The best thing I saw at Comic Con? MAYBE
This was a poster at the Mattel booth (?). He-Man is new and improved! Scott dubbed him “Trash Bag He-Man,” like regular He-Man, but wearing things he found in the trash.
Vykron is based on some very early concept art for He-Man! One of the line’s earliest concepts was to have He-Man change outfits for different situations. One situation apparently involved having a tank turret on your head!
I’ve actually read the book by the guy who invented the Vykron concept way back when. (And, at least in his opinion, He-Man too.) It’s called Mastering the Universe. People are split on whether the author’s claims are legit, half-legit or not legit at all, but it’s still an interesting look into what went into creating toy lines and how many obstacles there are.
I believe part of the reason for the “changing clothes” was because Mattel was looking for a new concept and had noted several potential styles — one based on G.I. Joe’s “military” motif, another with a Star Wars “space” accent, and so on. By having the alternative clothes, this guy could work in any of those situations. It was the (alleged) creator’s method of covering all the bases.
For those following me on obsolete accounts: Dino Drac is live!
You shouldn’t be following me on this account anymore. Dinosaur Dracula opens June 1st!
I’m moving. Come with me.
New site, which will be under wraps until the big launch a while later: http://dinosaurdracula.com
New Tumblr, which you should follow, because I’m eventually going to leave this one to die: http://dinosaurdracula.tumblr.com
See you there, I hope!
This is a little random, but I’m looking for a designer/coder to help me build “something.”
It’s a big project. The person should be familiar with Wordpress especially.
Unfortunately. at this time I’m really looking for someone who can both design AND code. (And by code, I mean take what they build and transform it into a functioning, Wordpress-powered blog.)
Obviously, this is a paying job. I can’t afford to spend a fortune but I can be fair. I have ideas and mockups of what I’m after, but need someone who is more of a pro to take it to the next level and actualize it all.
If interested, shoot me an e-mail. Matt at x-entertainment dot com. Thx!
