    A farewell from one of our moderators.
    Our long-time, down-under forum member and moderator Scriff has decided to step down as a moderator for Flame of Udûn. Scriff has been instrumental in getting the FoU up and running and has through the years been a great support for the rest of the moderator team with his clear head and wise voice. The rest of the moderator team want to give Scriff a big thanks and many virtual hugs for all the work he has put into both The Flame of Udûn and the Shadow and Flame. Although saddened by this news, we are very, very glad to learn that he will stay on as a forum member. All who had met Scriff in person, be it at a moot or a convention, know that his wonderful personality we know from the forums are the very same in real life.
    Give your thanks to Scriff the moderator

    Weta delves into the DC Expanded Universe.
    The sculptors at Weta have years of experience with long, flowing capes, but they haven't really dipped more than their big toe in the superhero waters, not since the four Superman Returns statues in 2006. Now, 15 years later, Weta is returning to Superman and his Justice League pals when they release products from Zack Snyder's Justice League. The 2017 movie has been reshot and recut by the original director and will premiere on HBO Max as a limited series later this year. What exactly Weta will produce is yet a mystery. Best way to keep yourself updated is to follow the forum thread:
    Collectibles incoming from Zack Snyder's Justice League
    Jump back in time to see the Superman Returns statues

    New Epic Middle-earth Minis coming.
    In a video showcasing the Lord of the Rings Mini Epics posted on various social media, Weta snuck in two never before seen figures. Our favourite Dark Lord is already up for pre-order and Gandalf the White is coming soon. Have you started collecting these smaller, whimsical vinyl figures yet? The Lord of the Rings line is growing bigger and now is as good a time as any to get a few of them! If nothing else it's a more affordable way to collect the whole Fellowship. That's right, all nine of them! Follow and join the discussion at Flame of Udûn.
