Ray Harryhausen has died

Postby AmperZand » Wed May 08, 2013 9:07 am

Apologies if this is the wrong forum on these boards to post this, but I just wanted to pass on some sad news: Ray Harryhausen, creator of classic movie special effects including the cyclops in the Seventh Voyage of Sinbad, the medusa in the original Clash of the Titans and the skeletons in the original Jason and the Argonauts has died in London at the age of 92.

You might not think that Harryhausen had anything to do with LEGO, but I'm guessing that Harryhausen's concepts inspired the S10 Medusa and influenced the S9 Cyclops.

I will be giving my Medusa a bow and quiver in tribute to Harryhausen.

Peter: "You've got Legos? Cool! Lois only gets me Mega Bloks."
Lois: "It's the same thing."
Peter: "No, it isn't."
