"Doomfile."


Hmm. What is in that file? We've mentioned the term MacGuffin before, and Alfred Hitchcock popularized if not invented the term: it's the object in the story everyone's after. Which is...to Hitchcock, not particularly important; what is important is that the characters think it is, want it, and act accordingly. George Lucas takes the opposing view, that the MacGuffin should be important, and that the audience should care about it. I first heard the term in an old Starlog magazine--#60--in a short piece on Nannaz, a film by Neal Adams!


I wonder if that was ever released anywhere...

I don't know if that's my favorite Doom figure, but he and Reed there are from the Ronan the Accuser Build-A-Figure wave. Still legitimately surprised I chanced into building him. I like the headsculpt on that Reed, but the permanently stretched limbs limit his usefulness. Still, we try to manage.

I'm actually impressed on how you posed and shot Doom being grabbed through and out the window. Props on that man.

So the mysterious file is just...mysterious huh? I can live with that. So who else is hunting that file?
