Cha-ka vs. Sleestak

Here are a couple of amusing Cha-ka and Sleestak drawings by artist Bob Canada on flickr.com: Cha-ka vs. Sleestak and
Cha-ka Has a Sna-ka.
 

 
Rhyme of the Ancient Guardian
   
Another LOTL-related item from our friends at Lady, That's My Skull, this time posted on flickr. I have a ton of old Starlog issues, but missed this one somehow. I even remember seeing thumbnails of all the Starlog covers in the past, including this one, but never quite looked at it closely enough to realize that it was the Lost City and Big Alice on the cover! Click on the cover image to visit flickr and begin reading.
I noticed something on page 3 of the article. There is a photo of the Grumpy stop-motion model with a figure in the background. The caption on the image explains,
    "The man-sized figure in the background is used to line up the live action with the stop-motion sequences as they are transferred to video-tape. The figure is kept in the frame while the TV cameras line the live action with the filmed dinosaurs. The model only appears in the first few feet that are used for this alignment and then is removed when the live action and film are taped."
The background figure looks a lot like the shape of the Altrusian guardian statue from the episode "Ancient Guardian." Maybe this make-shift figure was the inspiration for the script?

Assault on High Bluff

Here is an awesome piece of art by Ben Mackey! Click the thumbnail to go to his posting on DeviantART. I like the 3 crossbow bolts imbedded in Will’s shoulder, the blood on Rick’s sleeve, the animal look on Cha-ka’s face. Like a mature version of Land of the Lost.

Also, check out his stylized (Mignola-ized?) Sleestak

Another Parallel Universe?

Is this another parallel universe version of the Marshalls? No, just Lost List member (and LOTL fanatic) Jerry Leighton and daughter Natalie, all made up as the Marshall patriarch with torch in hand and his perky daughter Holly for a visit to their local theater to see the Land of the Lost movie! Sweet! Way to go, guys!
  "Careful, honey, there's Sleestaks everywhere." "Come on, Dad! We're going to miss the movie!"
