Dragon*Con 2011 is Around the Corner

This year Dragon*Con will be held Labor Day weekend (September 2-5, 2011). For four days Atlanta is stormed by costumes, comics, games and excitement. Each year Dragon*Con has grown in attendance and is finding it's own niche in the Convention circuit. I'm excited to attend and will be sure to post pictures. Until then, go to the Dragon*Con website for more updates and tickets!

LOTR: Orthanc Tower!

Before the great wizard was turned to the dark side, in the time when Gandalf sought council with Saruman - the head of his order - Isengard was lush and green and its gardens lent themselves well to a contemplative stroll.
This Orthanc is the inspiration for Weta's latest environment from The Lord of the Rings, revealed last week at San Diego Comic-Con and available for preview in the Weta online shop.
Weta has previously created an Orthanc collectible based on Isengard AFTER Saruman and his orc cohorts felled the trees and turned the once-pleasant sanctuary into an industry of war and destruction.
This new Orthanc at just under 17 inches towers above the old collectible, which has allowed for intricate detail in the tower as well as the surrounding gardens.
