Stan Winston passed away last night. Such a MASSIVE talent. Anybody who appreciates Great special effects, will miss this guy. Movies will be just a tad less magical now.

Holy crap, everyone cool is dying this year. Next thing you know, it'll be David Hasselhoff kickin' the bucket. ;)

Stan Winston contributed to a lot of my favorite movies. Aliens, Alien Nation, Jurassic Park, Terminator… Only 62 years old. That is a shame. :(

Also:
Wikipedia
Winston also created the Wookiee costumes for the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special.
DAMN YOU WIKIPEDIA! Must you mention EVERYTHING???

At least one of his last films was one of the good ones: Iron Man. Wait….they're making another Terminator movie?!? DAMMIT!

I really am out of touch…

I didn't even hear that…how sad…I wanted to meet him, I really did…next to Ray Harryhausen…I considered him a legend…

I'm seriously bummed now. His brilliance will be missed!

Goodbye, you great, wonderful, talented man whose name I never heard of until you died.
I am so happy to finally be back home
