OST Playset

Post  Mojo Turbo on Tue May 03, 2011 6:48 pm

I'll move this into the OST merch thread in a second, but wanted you mates to see this.... Target is getting an OST endcap. Mostly lego right now, but it had two "swish sound" swords and this dress up set that includes: pieces of gold, crappy felt hat, temp tattoos, the AWE map and 3 of Jack's rings:

Yea I saw that same exact set over at Walmart a couple weeks ago. I was curios what toys would be released, in hopes of a new sword or pistol to use for costuming, but this movie's toy selection is kinda lack luster this time around.

I think this other link is the full set of toys that were announced by Disney for this movie, including jewelry and lego sets...

http://www.comingsoon.net/imageGallery/Toy_Fair_2011

But still that set in your pic above isn't on that site. So maybe there's hope for other things to pop up in the retail world.

So I guess your son has some rings now! lol

nope, I wish.

$13 seemed a bit much for just rings only to throw the rest away.... I like the sword hilt though...

For me it's the glasses. It never seems to fail that halfway through the movie they start to feel uncomfortable and I end up taking them off for a few minutes, all the while looking at a blurry mess on the screen. Plus, it seems like colors get kinda muted through those lenses. This isn't so much a problem with Pixar movies or something like Avatar, since the CGI is so bright and vibrant, but for movies shot on practical sets.... it just never looks the same to me.

Now, show me glasses-free 3D technology, and I'd be all over it!

I've had my eye on this set for a few weeks, but not for myself. I think my not-quite-3-year-old would have a blast with it! I gave him the little skull ring that came with my Disney Store compass set and he wore it to Disneyland before dropping it in the water on Tom Sawyer Island, right next to the bone cage. Now whenever we go back there, he insists on showing me where he dropped his pirate ring.

Remember that email that was going around with the survey?

Remember I complained about filling it out and then them telling me I didn't qualify 'cause I was Canadian?

And then remember I said I lied when I took it again and put in a US zip code? Laughing MUAHAA

It worked! I got selected ( though I'm sure most did ) ! And today I got an email for an 'exclusive featurette'! What an excellent morning!!!

It was a lot of familiar stuff with a handful of new things thrown in.

Spoiler:

Gibbs: All part of the plan, yes?
* Jack gets whacked in the back with the end of a guards rifle*
Jack: No...

Jack and Gibbs walking down the shore at sunset ( love these two! Best best friends ever. hahaha ).

Jack and Gibbs inside the carriage when it comes to a sudden stop.
Jack: Oh! Short trip.
* gets out and stumbles, camera zooms out to them being surrounded by guards*

Jack getting shackled, whips his hand away from the guard with disgust.
King: I've heard of you.
*Jack looks confused*
King: And you know who I am.
Jack: Your face is familiar, have I threatened you before? ( not too keen on this being recycled, but to be fair, he has a silly look on his face when he says it )

A quick behind the scenes of Jack, Gibbs and Barbossa laughing ( really quick but it's cute so I thought I'd mention it. haha )

Jack and Gibbs walking through a bamboo forest

Jack doing his crazy fingers

GROVES SANS WIG! WHAT!? WHY!!
Jack, holding both chalices, to Barbossa: Shall we have a drink?
Barbossa: We'll drink at the fountain!!!


Here's the link! Travis said it works by just clicking it. Isn't it nice to have someone on the inside who then ensures that these 'exclusive treats' are available outside? Wink

http://ahoy.piratesfansfirst.com/534610.php

In the official 'Pirates Fans First' email, there's also an offer for a free 24x36 poster of Jack's character poster for OST. Very Happy Yay! Free stuff! AND I shipped it to my Canadian address and they let it go through. Pwnd. Twisted Evil

The report back from a friend about the Real 3D is that it wasn't bad but of course there are a few campy 3D effects that were added for the purposes of being campy. Example like the ole 3D effect of something coming out at you from the screen as in something really pointy????!!! You can figure it out.

Dark parts of the movie were extremely dark because of the glasses. That is going to be the norm for most 3D movies. I would really like to see it in Imax 3D since it is a different technology.

Post  Captain McCool on Wed May 04, 2011 4:58 pm

Yeah... ultimately here are the reasons I don't like 3D movies:

1. I hate how dark the glasses make everything. It's like wearing sunglasses into a movie. Can't stand that. I want my colors to POP, and the glasses just make everything look dull. And especially with this film, where so much looks like it's going to be in the dark or at night, I'm not thrilled with this prospect.

2. If you aren't sitting EXACTLY in the center front, the 3D always seems... off.

3. To go along with this, even when I AM sitting front and center, I still come out feeling cross-eyed, with a slight-to-not-so-slight headache. I don't have eye problems, I just don't like feeling cross-eyed. That's how it feels to me - like I've been staring at one of those magic-eye posters for two and a half hours.

4. I find the 3D distracting. Sometimes I want to see the detail in certain scenes, or I just want to focus on the plot or dialoge in a particular expositional scene. To me, the 3D does nothing for this.


The only time I ever actually WANTED to see a movie in 3D was How to Train Your Dragon, just for the flight scenes alone. How amazing that would've been! Unfortunately, I never got that chance. So yeah, not thrilled about the 3D here.

Nah, see the U.S. and Canada are both Britain's children. And with this in mind, I feel Homer simpson summed it up well when he said:
"I know we don't call as often as we should and we aren't as well behaved as our goodie two-shoes brother Canada. Who by the way has never had a girlfriend. I'm just saying..."

I am not a big fan of 3-D either, for a lot of the same reasons as Capt. McCool has stated... It can be cool in parts, but overall, I am still not sold on the technology... I have yet to see anything *wow* me with 3-D... Some cool stuff, to be sure, but not cool enough to pay more money to see in 3-D... Although, it's hard to find a movie around my are that DOESN"T play in 3-D... Grrrrr....

As for the movie, I will be seeing it Saturday at Disneyland! It will be in 3-D and outside... I am very interested to see if that affects the viewing at all, for better or worse... Either way, it's going to be a great time! What a Face

Like Pirate Daddy said above, if they made a glasses-less 3D, I think I may be more inclined to try it... as long as it didn't involve crossing my eyes, heh.

And actually, I very well may invest in those 2D glasses! Those things are hilarious and totally brilliant all at once!
