[10:06:59 AM] Triangle717: Have you ever seen this site?
[10:07:00 AM] Triangle717: http://videogameflas...d/interview.php
[10:07:29 AM] Triangle717: Because if you or some one else had, we should have already known LI was at E3.
[10:07:50 AM] jamesster: Nope, when's it from?
[10:08:09 AM] Triangle717: I don't know.
[10:08:16 AM] Triangle717: Rio found it, and showed it to me.
[10:08:20 AM] jamesster: Looks good.
[10:08:23 AM] Triangle717: He says he has seen it plenty of times before.
[10:08:23 AM] jamesster: Reading now, thanks.
[10:08:31 AM] jamesster: Surprised it's gone unnoticed.
[10:08:32 AM] Triangle717: It has LI concept art on it.
[10:08:36 AM] Triangle717: I know!
[10:08:44 AM] Triangle717: I read the whole thing, it is really good.
[10:08:55 AM] jamesster: Seen the concept art before
[10:08:58 AM] jamesster: He sent me the file
[10:09:31 AM] Triangle717: I was going to make a topic om RRU, but I'd thought I'd ask you about it first. But if you want to, you could probobaly write a better one than me.

I found out that site was registered using a short-term domain, lasting for only 3 years. In order to preserve this fantastic info, I just finished archiving it.

Believe me, I'm not going to let this stuff go away!

Wow, that island looks actually better than the one released in some ways. Thanks for posting :)!

 

However, some of the buildings don't look that great.

I don't think the minifig was around in 1997, the face is more based on LI2/IXS after all.

Know anything specific about the five canceled games? We know a little bit, but not a whole lot, a couple are complete mysteries with even the themes behind them unknown.

I think i've heard someone talk about those games. Didn't it have to do with "Adventures in the Phanta Sea" as well as some games based off of other themes at the time or something like that?

Has anybody ever asked Wes to actually join RRU or does anybody know if he ever got anywhere with that Making of LI book he said he was thinking about writing at some point? He still seems to surprise us with all he knows and I think that we could certainly learn more if he was easier to reach...

I could ask him. I have him on facebook. We've talked quite a lot in the last year.

The face is based on LI2's. You seem to be forgetting the IXS video game was made after the IXS theme was created. So LEGO based most of their minifig designs on LI2/1. Some IXS minifigs actually have LI2 eyes.

How long have you been writing this book, and when will you finish it? I'd love to read it. :)
