    I am more concerned about they way he is standing, nay, hovering, above that snowy mountain crag.

  2. THX 1138 Says:

    I’d hazard a guess he’s accidentally set off his stun gun, judging by his expression.

  3. Druaightagh Says:

    As well as the eyes, we want strong overtones of Star Wars in there please, cause you know, sci-fi people love the Star Wars, and Empires was 8 years ago, no one will remember it…

    Hoth looking environment…check
    Big radar/laser dish thingy…check
    Hero looking off into the distance on a hill…check
    Rebel Alliance pilot like uniform…check
    Jedi’esc cloak…check

    He’s a very tiny man standing in a McFlurry.

  5. Ian Says:

    Where oh where did I leave my sword… maybe it is with my “savage vengeance”?

  6. fred Says:

    You can add a damn big pair of gloves to his justice seeking accessories.

  7. Seamyst Says:

    Well, at least the cape is fur-lined…

    Something has gone horribly, horribly wrong with his snow goggles.

    Loose, baggy clothing like those sleeves — wait, maybe it’s a baggy jumpsuit tucked into those boots? ew. — is generally worn in hot climates to keep air circulating away from the body. It makes me feel chilled just looking at it.

    Actual cold climate clothing is generally layered and close fitting, if not actually snug. It tends to bulk up one’s appearance.

    Those eyes are, like, freaking me out man!

    Seriously, what went wrong? It’s like, standard sci-fi cover, ho hum, and then BOOM!

    Anime Eyes!

    “With stun gun, sword and savage vengeance he sought justice in a frozen world!”

    So, he was a complete nutter then?

    The Hildebrandts have done a lot of Star Wars art, so yeah, I suppose it figures.

    But damn those eyes! They keep following me about the room.

    I think his right foot is broken.

  14. Adam Roberts Says:

    Top quality winters, all the best brands, up to 70% reductions — at WINTER WORLD!

  15. Espedair Says:

    The boot shinpas combo looks totally impractical unless, there is a game of footie going on nearby. Maybe that is what he is watching? Perhaps wearing team colours? Dutch snow footballers in space!

    Obi Wan: “Luke. Use the force to see your way through”

    Luke: “I can’t see anything, the sun is blinding my super-duper eyes!”

  17. A.R.Yngve Says:

    I’m seeing a WINTER WORLD outside my window right now… but not much savage vengeance.

  18. Jaouad Says:

    It’s like one of those totem thingies, where he has his eyes closed and a second pair of eyes painted on his eyelids.

  20. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    ‘Winter is coming…yep…definitely coming…coming this way…here…it…comes…for …sure…’

  21. anon Says:

    “With stun gun, sword and savage vengeance he sought justice with frozen eyes!”

  22. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Ha! In Scandinavia, we don’t need all that sissy-pants gear to brave the WINTER WORLD… we just put on a woolen cap and a pair of good boots!

  23. Tat Wood Says:

    It’s almost time for a lot of press coverage about angry parents who forked out fifty quid to stand in a muddy field advertised as ‘Winter World’.

    Perhaps the Hot Elf* has eyes like Marty Feldman after receiving a beating from these gullible folks.
