Title: Lobot's Duplex...RIP John Hollis
Post by: Scott on June 15, 2004, 04:54 PM
Care to guess what IT actually is?

Clue #1 It's going to be the biggest thing to hit the net since Google opened its doors.

Trust me...IT might even bigger than Google

No sorry...that's Booble

Google's IPO and/or email system would be my guess.

Nope, not really anything to do with Google...

what number is larger than google .....anyway apparently it's a new search engine.

I believe that's googleplex but again IT has nothing to do with Google

Jesus.

Well...nope nothing to do with Jesus either

I think were still waiting for the answer on that one.  

According to Hormel, SPAMtm is a "Meat Product" just like Beef Jerky or other "prepared foods".  It cannot be considered "Meat" because it has already been processed and prepared for consumption (although, they often refer to it as a luncheon meat).

On-line Multiplayer Bowling!  YES!  Finally the MMORPG has embraced the Pro Bowlers Association (PBA) (http://www.pba.com) for a Massively Multiplayer O-line game!  I can only hope that I can model my character to match my all-time PBA hero, Earl Anthony:

Title: Re: IT is coming
Post by: Matt on July 23, 2004, 01:33 PM
Well, there It is.  The cat is finally out of the bag.

I would like to thank Chris Berry, Scott Pearson, Angry Ewok, and the rest of the staff for bringing Lobot's Duplex back to it's deserved place at the forefront of the online Star Wars collecting community--where it belongs.

I know that it was a difficult, laborious process for all involved--in fact, the sheer amount of coding involved delayed the official announcement by three and a half weeks alone.  Not to mention all of the paperwork, red tape, and legal mumbo-jumbo.

As for the OTC Lobot--while some of the staff urged me to update with it, as the site's founder, I have decided that the new Lobot is not quite Lobot-y enough, and as such, it will not be included in the Duplex.

I thank you all for your patience, and I hope you enjoy what is now undoubtedly the finest character focus collection the Star Wars online community has ever (or will ever) seen.

Post by: Matt on July 23, 2004, 01:52 PM
And--maybe it's just me--but shouldn't all of the necessary threads over at Rebelscum and Galactic Hunter be updated with the new site?

I know that several dozen hundred thousand people from those sites were severely saddened and disappointed when the original site (God rest it's soul) went down months ago.

As for the Ritz cracker--unfortunately, as Scott Pearson first reported, it was eaten in a moment of sheer hunger.   :-[

And to you, Morgbug--it's the support of the little people (like yourself) that keeps me and the site going.  But please, capitalize "Dupe" next time, huh?

And--maybe it's just me--but shouldn't all of the necessary threads over at Rebelscum and Galactic Hunter be updated with the new site?

And can someone tell Durge that he still sucks balls?

And to you, Morgbug--it's the support of the little people (like yourself) that keeps me and the site going.  But please, capitalize "Dupe" next time, huh?

Please, Morgbug--when I said you were a little person, please understand that I meant that as a positive thing.  

We're all little people compared to Lobot.

Finnaly Lobot's Duplex is back up. I think, no I know that millions of Star Wars fans arround the world had been waiting for this.

Now both Lobot and The Ice Cream Makes Guy (what a tag-team they would be, forget about C-3PO and R"-D2 or han Solo and Chewbacca) has their own pages. Next step has to be jjks' release of his "Pote Snitkin's Upper Wst Side Flat" he's dremaing about.

Keep up the good work OCB and Virex.

Congrats on "The Dupe". Nice to see people still think it's moderately amusing, and not tired, and unfunny..kinda like me!

Well, thank you, Cory.  But really--without you, there'd be no Dupe in the first place--so thank you.

Now, the way this was worded, it could go two ways:

You could be saying that the Duplex is tired and unfunny (and I'll see that and raise you a "pointless", since the very site it was spoofing was taken down just weeks after it's debut).

You could also be saying that you are tired and unfunny.

I don't know.

I agree with both--but with the latter more.

You know, we had rented out the space for a Lobot's Duplex booth at San Diego (replete with the exclusive Silver Disco Lobot collectible action figure, too), but the duties here kind of came first, and our SDCC plans fell through, unfortunately.

But there's always Celebration III.

See you in Indy!

wow, i heard that they weren't going to be making anymore silver figures - you guys must have some pull to get this in before they stopped completely... or did the demand require that they make it anyway, even after they said no more?

Title: Re: IT is coming
Post by: Matt on July 24, 2004, 11:05 PM
I hate to tell you fellas this, but the quantities of the Comic Con Celebration 3 Silver Disco Lobot collectible action figure are going to be extremely limited--limited to how many Disco Lobots I can find at the flea market, and also limited to however much Rustoleum #22 Metallic Silver spray paint I've got left in the can.

I'm thinking we're gonna have about eight ready to go in time for Indy.  We're trying to get something together with the Gentle Giant guys for a special raffle.  

We'll see how it goes.
Title: Re: IT is coming
Post by: jokabofe on July 24, 2004, 11:08 PM
how about an internet exclusive raffle? only registered users of the secret forum section of the duplex can order it... and then it will be a raffle to see which lucky 8 or so get the chance to stand on line at c3 to get it?

Interesting concept.

Keep in mind, though--not all eight are going to be going to the fans.  I mean, I'm getting one, John Hollis is getting one, and I'm sending one to Cory, free of charge.

So that only leaves about five for the fans.

We've got some time to think about what would be the most fair thing to do.

I like your idea, though--maybe make the raffle available only to members of the new "Lobotspace" section of the Duplex?  

Lobotspace--very cool, by the way.  $149 a year, get exclusive news articles, features, the official Lobot's Duplex quarterly, not to mention the best of all:  The Exclusive John Hollis Shower-Cam!  Yes, now you, too, can watch as our man John shaves his head every other day.  Best of all, it's totally live!  It's like you're actually there!

Sign up now.

Hey, I don't know.  Doesn't make much sense to me, either.  I say, take it up with the guys up in Rhode Island.

All I know is, we need to do whatever we can do to get this incredibly special collectible in the hands of as many fans and collectors as possible.

If that means "bending the rules" on the points a little bit, then so be it.

The re-opening was probably a bigger deal than the Episode III title announcement.

Speaking of which, now that JD's hosting the site, when do I get my weekly column, where I get to show off my "Star Wars 'humor'" in writing?  You know, make these "witty" observations about how much TRU sucks, or how unfair all the exclusives are, etc.

I was thinking of calling it "Lobot's Lingo".

Let me know when I can submit my first article!

Title: RIP John Hollis aka Lobot
Post by: MetalJedi on November 4, 2005, 01:40 AM
From TheForce.net:

John Hollis, known to Star Wars fans as Lobot from Bespin, recently passed away.

Info passed on from Ken DAlessio:

John Hollis, who played Professor Sondergaard in the Jon Pertwee serial "The Mutants," died on October 18 in London of natural causes. Hollis had an extensive career in science fiction roles, including
on "The Tomorrow People," "Blake's 7," "Adam Adamant Lives,"

"The Avengers," "A For Andromeda" and in the films "Flash Gordon," the "Superman" series and "The Day of the Triffids," and is perhaps best known to fans as Lando Calrissian's aide Lobot in "The Empire Strikes Back".

You can catch up with is long career over at IMDB.

Jeez, another OT actor is gone. I know they aren't going to be around forever but they are going too fast now. Rest in Peace John.

I was thinking that the other day too, that it seems each month we lose another beloved OT actor. While I didn't have the pleasure of meeting him, I've heard only great things about him and I am saddened about his passing.
