7/08/03, 5:29 pm EST - leo

Ringer Spy J.R. dug up a very interesting picture from www.popcornlive.co.uk which shows ToyBiz's Witch King-figure in full armour. Why is this interesting? Remember the reports about Aragorn fighting Sauron at the end of The Return of the King?

We can only speculate, but in the meantime, check out the picture in our scrapbook! TINY SPOILER!

Caffeine lover saves favoured place

7/07/03, 3:05 pm EST - Xoanon

The future of the third Lord of the Rings movie might have been saved by the heroic efforts of a caffeine crazy art director.

"I'll be damned if I'm going to miss out on a coffee, mate," he said.

He showed up on the set of Episode III fresh out of his cast, but still on crutches. Unfortunately, there were no details on how the injury happened. According to your site, Laga'aia played Ugluk in "TTT",' but IMDB doesn't list him in any LotR movies. At any rate, it certainly sounds like he'll be in the third one.
