Welcome to the Dune Special Edition Project

This is a project I have been slowly working on over the last few years with the goal of ultimately replacing many of the "outdated" special effects shots in David Lynch's 1984 version of Dune.
The project initially began as an endeavor to build a "proper" ornithopter - one with flapping wings, that neither the movie or the mini-series managed to achieve. However, with the advent of the "fan-edit" the scope of the project has expanded with the goal of updating the effects in all those places in the movie where I feel things could be significantly "improved."
Although I am currently working on this by Myself, it's a large undertaking and if there is anyone interested in helping this project along, feel free to contact Me - We might actually be able to get this project completed with a few more skilled and enthusiastic people!

DUNE Special Edition: Showreel March 2010

Sunday, February 15, 2015

Just for fun I decided to make some card back mock ups for "Dune SE" action figures, using a modified version of the original Kenner star wars card back - since I always felt those were some of the best looking action figure card backs.
Also found some pictures of the original LJN action figures and some custom made ones.
There are different colour backgrounds depending on which faction they belong to.

  1. I never was a fan of those LJN figures. The figures were too bulky, in my own opinion. Your card backs honor them more than they are worth. ;)
