Im really im hoping that not the case...i think a poppetmaster of something like they did in the old aliens films would be FAN-tastics. In my option that is what made LOTR a great movie, almost all of the characters that appeared like the Uruk-hai are real. I really hated the fact that in star wars Yoda in The Phantom Menace was a poppet and in Attack of the clones the was all CG.
Im really not a fan of CG if you didt get it :rolleyes
Id much rather a live actoin brute rather than cg. most of the time atleast. then you could parade around like that. Also they could do it like the Jurassic Park raptor suits. they were all animatronic with a guy inside controling and considering a brutes more or less human shaped than a velociraptor.
Also weta would be fool if they only made models and not repro armor. so many people would buy it. Who here wouldn't want an ODST Helmet for fifty bucks. Thats about how much LOTR stuff costs. BR anyone?
That last one is really interesting. If that time is correct they its they year 2534. But the spiker didn't appear untill 2537...and it cannot be the year 2637 because the battle for earth is earlier then that...
