  • The 2017 Flamies Award Ceremony








    The Flame of Udûn Collectors message board presents
    The Flamies Awards 2017

    Here we are, in our virtual bubble which we like to pretend is the Green Dragon!
    Our little team is very soon ready to greet all you pretties to this wonderful event. The Flame of Udûn Flamies Awards 2017 is about to begin.

    For almost three weeks ago we asked you, the members of Flame of Udûn, to vote for each other in given categories. Over the next 48 hours or so we'll finally announce all the winners. Did your choice win? Or maybe more importantly, did YOU win?

    2017 was kind of a either/or year when it comes to Weta collectibles. The first 2 quarters of the year was pretty much quiet as you waited for new stuff. "Why don't they release anything new", "it's been [insert number of weeks] since we got anything" and "they better be saving up for something good for comic-con" was kind of the lament which could be heard in the Weta section those months. Then San Diego Comic-Con came and BOOM! we got three new, huge pieces. And another look at last year's biggies; the War Troll and Grond. And it didn't stop there. It felt like every few week for the rest of the year Weta previewed something new. The collector's heart jumped and cried with joy. The wallets cried out in pure terror. What a year!

    The forum grew a bit too:

    A special mention and some comforting hugs to those who fell off the top 10 list in 2017:
    Scriff fell from 9th to 11th and Morgoth Bauglir from 7th to 13th.


    This year we'll be handing out awards in 12 categories + 2 new inductees into the Flame of Udûn Hall of Flame.
    I hope you all have picked up your dresses from the dry cleaners. If not, you better hurry. We are just a few hours from announcing the winner of the first category. Just let us get the red carpet rolled out and we'll join you for some well deserved liquids in the bar.

      It is now time to roll out the Flamies Red Carpet.

      It is so nice to have such wonderful helpers to help me with this task.
      Thank you so much Red and Olórin, so greatly appreciate your help.
      Go figure, Scriff and Stig are in their usual 'on looker' spots.

      Are you ready??

                    What a beautiful bow tie you got there, Exploding Horizons , you match the hosts quite well in that matter.
                    But who's that person behind you? Your +1 or something?

                        ??
                        I do my best to look good for big events.

                        The amount of references to one of my posts is pretty staggering

                        Hopefully Maggie won't stay for long, she's a downer.

                          Why do you look so shocked FrodoEyes ? It couldn't possibly be due to the rainbow coloured dress, we thought it was the perfect dress for our British lad.
                          It must be due to having to bring both Eti and Ringer with you. And here you thought there was ever only one One Ring.

                            If you thought carrying around ONE the one ring was heavy stuff, you should try TWO. You look good all things considered, FrodoEyes. Ringer and Eti sure look shiny, I think they have been thoroughly rubbed recently.

                              Be careful Stig using FrodoEyes and thoroughly rubbed in same sentence can only lead to omg

                                      Some seriously snazzy dresses showing on the red carpet!

                                      Though I thought Eti liked waxing more than massages...or am I thinking of someone else?! ..........
