Alas! Ray Harryhousen's Left Us!

Yes. Phil loved this.
(Yes, we hated this.)

The management here at The Workbench is deeply saddened to pass along this article from our friends at the BBC:

Mr. Harryhousen's work in so many films thrilled and terrified us; his amazing skills were the touchstone for so many of us who were in the first generation of role-playing game participants.

"Jason and the Argonauts" this weekend, I think, with a dose of "Sinbad" movies as a chaser.

Thank you, sir! Your work still thrills!


  1. The animated statue is a badass. I remember seeing "Clash of the Titans" in HS. Caliban was horrific; the scene in the Medusa's lair was terrifying ans suspenseful. The remake of Clash was a very pale shadow of the original.

  2. So sad when so many of the greats from around our hobbies are leaving us.

  3. Shelving, Lockers, Workplace Lockers Workbenches, Small Parts Storage, Bicycle Storage, Pallet Racking and shelving, Handling Equipment, Storage Equipment and great prices and free UK delivery from 4theworkplace.
