Stan Winston, 1946 - 2008

I'm going to interrupt my regular sick-as-a-dog scheduled programming to drop this post in, because I feel it's somewhat important. Stan Winston passed away over the weekend. Those who are into movies will instantly know who I'm talking about. If you don't, chances are you've enjoyed many of the films he's worked on in the past. Check out his IMDB page to see this prolific special effects master's work.

...and if anybody out there doesn't know his work, I'm sure they're familiar with a little film called Iron Man. Personally, I will always remember him as the genius behind the monsters in Monster Squad. They pwn the oldschool Universal monsters. Much respect Stan Winston, RIP.

it now makes that "wolfman's got nards" t-shirt you guys have up for sale all that more meaningful. I read somewhere (most likely AICN.com) that wolfman in "Monster Squad" was actually based off of Stan Winston's appearance.
