3001 - A Ford Transit Van (1979)

6 wheeled, gull-wing doored Ford Transit van of the future from somewhere around about 1979. The star of this picture is undoubtedly the van and not the driver of the Stardust Rover although his presence justifies the coverage in this blog.

The van was commissioned by the Ford Motor Company for use at shows and the images were used in various magazines of the day and of the type which might excite van and custom car enthusiast.
Time has not been kind to the van and its story can be viewed over at the Rods 'n' Sods forum
along with a lot more images and information.

The Dark Side of the Moon (1990)

The Dark Side of the Moon is a 1990 direct-to-video science fiction/horror film.  I've never seen it but I hear its above par for that kind of thing.



Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011)

Transformers: Dark of the Moon is the third instalment of the live-action Transformers film series.
Alas right there is where I'm going to bail out on you all because I didn't get the magic when it was a toy-line and a cartoon TV show back in the day.  I managed about twenty minutes of the first film before getting an attack of the Meh! and switching it off.  For the rest of the world that love all this robots in disguise stuff, I'm happy for you all but I can't play.  Enjoy the gallery.

Something for the Weekend #14

Well hello there!
Here is the lovely Linda Lusardi from back in the day when she was a page 3 girl in The Sun newspaper.  This is a cropped version of the full image because we're meant to be admiring the equally lovely space-wear and saving the internet from its self, one pair of tits at a time.
Linda is sporting one of the space helmets from Superman II...
Which as we've previously established was originally made for Moon Zero Two over a decade earlier.
Now I've a fairly good idea where this one ended up, which is here....

...although if anyone knows where it went in between times, to pick up the repaint, I'd love to know.

I've always assumed than anyone that knows of my blog will already be aware of David Sisson's excellent site where the final happy chapter of that particular prop can be discovered along with lots of other wonderful things but if you don't then you need to jump on that link and get over there asap.

colour me jealous
