Leap Year Photographic Competition

29th February 2012

We are running a brand new photographic competition to celebrate today, 29th February 2012, with the goal of showcasing your favourite Irwin Allen collectibles.

Over the past 50 years, an amazing number of collectibles have been produced to celebrate and promote all of the Irwin Allen movies and television shows. This is your opportunity to show off with pride your amazing Irwin Allen collectibles. If you have a large collection of Irwin Allen toys etc, why not gather them together for a photo shoot.

If your collection is more modest as many of ours are, try some creative and fun photography showcasing which collectibles you treasure most. Collections can include books, toys, DVDs, photo collections, badges, magazines, posters, model kits and builds, and all other kinds of Irwin Allen paraphernalia. A small judging panel of Irwin Allen fans (not including any competitors) will decide between them which are the favourite collection photos. If they are available, we may even ask one or two Irwin Allen actors to take a look at the competition entries and help with the judging process.

Remember, it’s not about how many collectibles you own, but on how you present and treasure them. If you don’t have a digital camera, see if a friend or member of your family can take a snapshot of your Irwin Allen collectible(s) with their mobile phone and email the photo over as an attachment.

The best photographs will be featured and credited to your name (either your full name or a nickname if you prefer) in a special permanent gallery at the end of the competition.

Some inventive or creative ideas might be to create a Time Tunnel backdrop and photograph your collectibles in front of it. Or use camera angles to depict a giant picking up one of your Land of the Giants collectibles. If you have some photo editing software, why not add some special photographic effects to add a typical “Irwin Allen” atmosphere to your photograph. There are endless possibilities. Most of all, have fun seeing your collectibles in a different light.

Voyage au Fond des Mers DVD

28th February 2012

Voyage au Fond des Mers DVD Volume 1

Some episodes of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea are now available on DVD in French as Voyage au Fond des Mers (released 31st January 2012).  In France, Volume 1 is a 4 disk set containing the first 13 episodes of Season Two.

From the information available, the set sadly does not contain the original English version and there are no French sub-titles.  We don’t know why they’ve chosen to start with the Season Two colour episodes but that may be due to not having a version of Season One dubbed into French.  If anyone can provide further details on the planned French DVD releases, please contact us.

The episodes included in this half Season Two set are:

1. Jonas et la Baleine (Jonah and the Whale)
2. La bombe Vivante (Time Bomb)
3. … et nous Sommes Cinq Survivants (And Five of Us Are Left)
4. Le Robot (The Cyborg)
5. Le Prisonnier de Venise (Escape from Venice)
6. L’Homme au Bras de Fer (The Left-Handed Man)
7. La Soif du Pouvoir (The Deadliest Game)
8. Le Léviathan (Leviathan)
9. Le Pacificateur (The Peacemaker)
10. Les Saboteurs de l’Inconnu (The Silent Saboteurs)
11. Le Facteur X (The X Factor)
12. La Révolte des Machines (The Machines Strike Back)
13. Le Monstre de l’au-delà (The Monster from Outer Space)
