I have decided that having NO Dune figures in my collection is an abomination unto itself. I love the books and the movies so much that I need to do some searching for some deals online. The figures aren't my favorite but they come with movie accessories and some battle action features. Paul Atredies is one of my literary heroes so I need to have him within sight. And I do love the look and design of that Sand Scout vehicle. The Laser Guns are terrific too. Any ray guns that light up are like candy to me.

The original line included Gurney Hallack and Lady Jessica as can be seen in the LJN catalogue.


The toys were designed and prepared before the movie was finished so are based on original designs that might not have necessarily made it into the final cut of the Cult Classic. I can't believe I didn't snap up these toys at the time since I was such a HUGE fan of the 1984 movie. The movie got me onto the books which made the books tens times as cool. I even love the 10 hours that SYFY did of the first three novels in the series - Dune, Dune Mesiah, and Children Of Dune.

Figure Realm is a great site for pictures of these obscure toy lines from the 80s and 90s.

Was at my local thrift store today and what should I find but the DVD collection of the first Dune TV series. For $1 I figured what the hell. As you know I've yet to watch any Dune adaptations, but that is about to change. I'm going to give it a shot and watch the whole series. Afterwards I think I'll re-read the six core books, something I haven't done in well over 20 years. Let the trip begin.
