TOYS THAT TIME FORGOT
Latest News on Ultima, Giger

The question springs up on message boards and in e-mails all the time, "Whatever happened to so and so?" Ask no more, here's the latest scoop on a couple of lines that are still in the works: Ultima Online and H.R. Giger.

    Ultima Online was originally scheduled for release in 2000, but was held because the game the toys were associated with was not released. We're happy to report that we are now moving forward with Ultima Online. We just completed a packaging refresher for the figures and current plans call for release in the first quarter of 2002.

    The line contains the following figures:


    • Juggernaut, equal parts warrior and machine

    • Warlord Kabur, leader of the Juka warrior clan

    • Blackthorn, mad technoprophet and immortal cyborg

    • Captain Dasha, lovely master of war and sorcery

    • Adranath, an undead demon of incredible power

    • Dragon, rules the skies with strength and sorcery


    In other UO news, Origin - UO's maker - is sponsoring an Online Worlds FanFest in Austin, Texas, in early January. Todd McFarlane will be a guest speaker at the event and two-ups of our figures will be on display. More news to come as the event draws closer.


    The H.R. Giger series is another one that has caused some confusion.

    The good news is the line, based on the artwork of famous Swiss surrealist H.R. Giger, is still alive. Our sculptors are working very closely with Giger to incorporate all the painstaking detail his work is known for into our figures. It has been time-consuming - our head sculptor Jean St. Jean even visited Giger's home in Switzerland to finalize a few details - but we think the end result will be worth it.

    Look for at least the first sculpture, Li II, in 2002.
