Films with LOST alumni Black Friday week sale

Amazon is having a big Black Friday week sale that is going on all week, starting today, Monday, November 21, 2011. I looked through the virtual bins, and found several items featuring LOST actors that could make great gifts (or to give to yourself). Continue reading

New: Polar bear bobble head

The LOST polar bear got his own bobble head, complete with fishbiscuit. His head is huge!

My first impression was “Oh, that’s kind of cute.” My second thought was, “Actually, it’s kind of creepy.” I guess it’s both — creepy in a cute kind of way.

LOST polar bear bobble head

The bobblehead goes on sale in August, 2011 for $14.99, and is available for pre-order now.

New LOST bobble heads — Sawyer, Desmond, Jack, and Dr. Arzt

LOST may be long over, but new products keep on coming.

Four new bobble heads from Bif Bang Pow! are available for pre-order — although at this point, it looks like they won’t actually be shipped until June, 2011.

Lost Sawyer Bobble Head

The Sawyer bobble head has our nickname-loving hero wearing a shirt (alas!) and a jacket. For some reason, he is holding a gun — I’m not sure what scene this is referencing. He is also holding the letter that played such a poignant role in Season 1.

Lost Jack Shephard Bobble Head

The Jack Shephard bobble head is posing with Vincent the dog — an odd choice, in my opinion, especially since Jack’s two iconic scenes with Vincent involve Jack lying flat on his back in the jungle, a position which wouldn’t work for a bobble head, as it would interfere with the bobbling. 😉

Besides, whenever I see Vincent, I think, “Where’s Waaaaaaaaaalt?”

Also, is it my imagination, or is Vincent unusually small here?

The bobble head is meant to evoke the Series Pilot — it has Jack wearing a suit, with a bit of the wreckage of Flight 815 on the ground behind him. He’s also got some sexy stubble. In fact, he looks sexier as a bobble head than he did in the series. (Yes, as a Sawyer fan I’m biased, but it’s true!)

Lost Desmond Hume Bobble Head

The Desmond Hume bobble head shows the Season 2 Desmond, wearing a Dharma jumpsuit and standing by the Swan Station computer, where he is, presumably, about to type in the infamous numbers.

Lost Dr. Leslie Arzt Bobble Head

Last, but not least, is what I think is the best bobble head of the bunch — Dr. Leslie Arzt holding a stick of dynamite, about to blow himelf up — a scene which led to one of Hurley’s greatest lines ever.

LOST Valentine’s Day cards

These are great:

Valentines Day card Locke lost dont tell me what I cant do love

So funny.

And how cute is this one –>

Valentines Day card Hurley LOST Dude love


They’re designed by artist Lee Bretschneider, who posted them on LiveJournal, saying “Feel free to print them, give them to friends, post on FB walls, etc.”

In addition to the Locke and Hurley cards, he made cards with Sawyer, Jin, Sayid, Kate, Ben, and Jack. See them here: LOST Valentine’s cards, with a few more here: hellomightydog’s recent entries.

Editing to add: Found some more great cards:

Photo cards with captions, including Sayid saying “I’ll be your Republican Guard,” Ana Lucia saying “Crazy 4 U and crazy in general,” and Charlie saying “Addicted to you.” Ha! By designer Jenny of the blog Jennology. See them, and a lot more, here: TV Valentines (For the LOST cards, scroll down a bit past the “24” stuff.)

And here’s a super-catchy one:

LOST island valentine with numbers by Beavotron

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
4, 8, 15, 16,
23, 42

It’s by Alexandria Neonakis (beavotron). She’s also got Ben Linus saying “What about me, Valentine?” and more. See them here: beavotron on DeviantART

Gifts for new converts to the cult of LOST

Buying a gift for someone who (gasp) has never watched LOST? Use this gift-giving occasion to recruit a new member into the secret cult of LOST.

The Moonies used flowers. Our methods are more sophisticated:

Stage I Indoctrination Supplies

Stage I Indoctrination Supplies

First, your victims, um future fellow travelers, will need a complete set of all the LOST DVDs for Seasons 1 to 5.

Lost Hydra MugNext, you must provide them with an continuous supply of coffee, so that they stay awake around the clock, doing nothing but watching LOST LOST LOST, until all memories of the outside world fade away. Give them an attractive Hydra mug, and keep topping it off with fresh hot caffeine-laden beverages. Sleep deprivation makes resistance melt away.

Next provide them with a LOST Soundtrack CD so that if they ever leave their perch in front of the TV, they can remain immersed in the world of LOST. Twenty-four/seven saturation is the key to creating loyal cult members.

Help them understand what they are watching. Messages from the Island has the best interviews, articles, photos, and art from the official LOST magazine, covering the first two seasons of the show. Finding LOST: The Unofficial Guide by blogger Nikki Stafford will guide them even deeper along the sacred path. Finally, Lost Ate My Life by Jon Lachonis (blogger DocArtz) and Amy “hijinx” Johnston will give them a glimpse of their glorious future.

Lost Official Dharma JumpsuitThe last step is to bestow on them the holy Dharma jumpsuit. Make them wear it. They won’t understand why, at first, but give them time, and they will come to adore the khaki as much as we do.

Unusual gifts for fans of ABC’s LOST

Updated November 23, 2011

Are you looking for LOST-related gifts for fans who already have the DVDs and t-shirts and episode guides? Here are some out-of-the-ordinary items that even the most enthusiastic LOST fan is unlikely to own:

The hatch painting

The hatch painting

If you’ve taken the Lost University placement test, you may remember a question about the mural in the Swan station. The mural, also known as the hatch painting, was painted by executive producer and director Jack Bender. You can buy a 24″ by 32″ poster print signed by Bender for $45, or the same-sized print unsigned for $25.

Gospel of John starring Henry Ian Cusick

"Gospel of John" starring Henry Ian Cusick

Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond Hume) got rave reviews for playing Jesus Christ in the 2003 movie Gospel of John, his first major film role. Before then he had been primarily a stage actor. Jam! called Cusick “the finest and most refined Christ in film history.” L.A. Weekly said “Rather than the ethereal Christ figure common to much religious art, The Gospel of John’s Jesus (played brilliantly by the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Henry Ian Cusick) is a fundamentally human, impassioned rabbi, frustrated by the need to perform miracles as a way of proving himself, enraged by the sin he sees all about him.” The Gospel of John DVD sells for $11.99.

The Baptism of Christ by Verrocchio and da Vinci

The Baptism of Christ by Verrocchio

Another question on the Lost U. placement test referred to the 15th century painting “The Baptism of Christ,” created by Andrea del Verrocchio with assistance from a young Leonardo da Vinci. In episode 1×12 Fire + Water, Charlie had a dream where Claire and his mother were the angels that appear on the left side of the painting, and Hurley was John the Baptist. You can buy a 13″ x 19″ poster of the painting, now on sale  for only one penny (plus shipping).

Hotel Lachapelle

Hotel Lachapelle

If your LOST-fan gift recipients have seen the amazing Season 1 British promo created by wildly inventive photographer David LaChapelle, they might enjoy seeing some of his other work. Here’s Amazon’s description of his photography book Hotel LaChapelle: “In this world, heads are sewn onto different-colored bodies, a nurse holds a face with a pair of tweezers, Marilyn Manson works as a school crossing guard, Madonna is a Krishna goddess, Leonard DiCaprio becomes Marlon Brando, and Ewan McGregor’s face peers into a dollhouse while his body bleeds from a gunshot wound fired from Barbie’s diminutive gun. The list goes on, and what it says about LaChapelle’s vision is that excess is never too much.” Hotel Lachapelle sells for $37.80.

Bride and Prejudice

See Sayid dance

Before he played Sayid, Naveen Andrews danced his way through the 2005 Bollywood musical remake of Pride and Prejudice (clip). LOST fans can tap their toes to Bride and Prejudice for $14.49.



A tour of LOST’s filming locations on Oahu would be the ultimate gift for a LOST fan. A five-hour guided tour in a Hummer costs $154.00 per person. Buy two tickets so that you can go too.
