Oh yes, definitely not too much techy, is well integrated with the medieval armor touch.

I always imagined all technology as victorian, pure tool, with phobia of too much advanced electronics.
More aestetics than funcionality with obsessive decoration of swirling curves of metal
But that was MY imagination.

INteresting! I never imagined him so tech! I always imagined him to be a gross brute.

LOL! Well despite the fairly 'low-tech' vibe I get from the Dune books, I would imagine that there would be some smatterings of technology here and there. I don't really think that my design is too techy... I mean, he just has the breather mask and lasgun/cannon on his side :).

IMDB here I come... I always thought there was only one movie!

LOL! Well there was the aborted, psychedelic version that was suppose to star Salvador Dali in the 70's, and of course there was the Sci-Fi Channel mini-series, but yes, technically there was only the movie by David Lynch from the 80's! If you do a google search for 'dune jodorowsky' and/or 'dune moebius', all sorts of interesting things from the first attempt will come up...

Wow... no wonder the 1st movie never came out! I can dig left-field... but that seemed way out there and WAY too complexe to be explained in a movie.Even the 80's movies is slightly out-there... but I blame it on technology and approach. Then again, I haven't read the novels and I bet there's too much substance there for a single movie to do it justice.
Will have a look at the mini-series though, should be interesting.

The mini-series is ok. Storywise, it's more accurate to the book (despite some major character changes) simply because of the length allowed. In some parts, it is cheesy and acted poorly, as well as being miscast and lit in an artificially horrible, stage-lighting style. You can't beat the 'look' of the 80's movie, in my opinion, though I can understand why it's so hard to follow.

The Children of Dune sequel is actually good, seems like they learned from the mini-series!

I saw the 80's first when I was a child, so I understood SQUAT, except for who's good and who's bad! Then saw it again sometime this summer and finally understood it all, it's a masterpiece! But also understood that it has so much potential... couldn't fight the feeling that a remake could do it some good, IF done correctly!

I will have a go at the mini-series, my curiousity is tingled! Thx for the info!

Moebius worked on the Lynch film, too, I'm pretty sure... :-S
But yes, I'd love to see it filmed properly. the 1980 film looked great, and had a great cast, but made no sense (Lynch supposedly shot 7 hours, and edited it down to 3 - how much would you love to see the other 4?!?) & the Mini-series was pretty bad all round, but at least complete...

Yeah, it's suppose to be a gun/cannon of some sort floating on anti-grav suspensors, lol.
