Dear Kubrick,

You know you did a good job on the likeness when the face recognition software on my new computer can identify Dom and I.

Does any of you guys listen to "The Lost Initiative"-Podcast by Kimberley and Aimee?
I think it's the best out there...
...what are your favorites?

Tena Lynn said...

That is too cute!!

Petra said...

Way cool, Jorge!

DORAda said...

too cute!

*~Dani~* said...

Love them! They do look like you guys. Either Kubrick is REALLY talented or your computer is REALLY high tech and maybe a bit creepy.

Dakota said...

Are these Legos? (Well, something similar to lego?)

Awesome software though.

Avinash said...

I am definitely going to buy those. I hope they have voodoo powers too.

I'll make you do all sorts of crazy shit

LOL - too cool, Jorge. What a kick to have yourself immortalized a la Kubrick. Thanks for sharing.

Are you using iPhoto?

Hepzibah said...

At first I didn't get the reference to Kubrick. I'm like, why is Jorge addressing this blog entry to Stanley Kubrick? What does a dead film director have to do with those toy-like figures. So I Wikipedia'd "Kubrick," and it turns out, the toy company was named in honor of Stanley Kubrick! Wikipedia has a detailed article about the company. After reading it, I'm not surprised at the accuracy of the facial features!

Awesomeness.

Rachael said...

That's awesome. I love that.

Rachel Snyder said...

Hepzibah, I was confused at first too, until I read what you said. Thanks for clearing that up :)

Carmen said...

Those are awesome! I read about those... where ca I get some, hahaha!

Rachel said...

man i wish someone would make a toy of me!!!

James Hernandez said...

Jorge,

They even nailed the type of shirt you wear on the show. Awesome!

B.R said...

Pretty Cute^^^!
Gotta love it when face recognition sees that our toy versions of famous guys really ARE who they are supposed to be.
I tried my face recognition soft with harry potter toy
it worked!

Love. It.

Paul Spooner said...

Which one is you again?

Wednes said...

Awesome. We're really experiencing a second golden age in terms of action figures. Todd MacFarlane really ushered in a new era of amazingly sculpted, well designed figures that end up being truly exceptional collectibles for those of us who consume such things. Now all the major "toy" companies are following suit, and we, the fans, have all kinds of choices when it comes to buying figures.

Sorry for the nerd talk. But combining the awesomeness of figures with the overall cuteness of Jorge, is almost too much for a fangirl to handle!
;-]

Ezawyn said...

Cool! But what is this? You´re LEGOS? lol!

J.D. said...

Amie R. said...

AtomBlonde said...

I need a few of these...Yoda and Kit Fisto are gettin'lonely on my work station.

Christina Bauer said...

Wow those are so perfect! Very nice job, Kubrick! And thanks for sharing, Jorge!!

Ashlie-Mommycosm.com said...

Wow, those are pretty good - and hilarious!

laurie said...

What face recognition software is this?

That's pretty fantastic.

Miztification said...

I ordered some Kubricks, but mine never came. :( I've got to track down the paperwork...either that or call the post office(Good luck with that, right?). Face recognition software...Wow! I thought only the government used that type of stuff.

kake79 said...

Um... the Hurley Kubrick came with a scale? WTH?!

Ralph- said...

wait, you have a face recognition program? do you work for MI6 now?

Trude said...

Awesomeness.

renita said...

This is not really related to your post, but I have to ask -- my husband and I saw Matthew Fox brand wines at the grocery store yesterday, is it the same Matthew Fox?? :)

BubbaCoop said...

Now if only they weren't so darn expensive. $150 for Desmond?!

redelf said...

it is sorta weird too.

This very talented artist has been doing portraits of all your castmates, and here is yours! Love it.

FlowerMonkey said...

That's hilarious!

Jazzygirl said...

Jorge, I don't know if you'll see this but I sure hope so. You've GOT to check out these YouTube clips. Nikki posted it on her LOST blog here: http://nikkistafford.blogspot.com/2009/06/lost-funniest-show-on-tv.html

Erin said...

These are so cool. I think I need to get them!

CK said...

Hilarious! I'm collecting these. So far, I have Hurley, Jack and Sawyer. I really, really need Ben, but it seems that he's rather elusive.

Nobody said...

@Hepzibah glad I'm not the only one who wondered that and thank you for clearing it up for me. Now I'm off to read the Wikipedia entry for myself....

TWENTYSOMN said...

There was this guy who believed very much in true love and decided to take his time to wait for his right girl to appear. He believed that there would definitely be someone special out there for him, but none came.
Every year at Christmas, his ex-girlfriend would return from Vancouver to look him up. He was aware that she still held some hope of re-kindling the past romance with him. He did not wish to mislead her in any way. nike shoxsSo he would always get one of his girl friends to pose as his steady whenever she came back. That went on for several years and each year, the guy would get a different girl to pose as his romantic interest. So whenever the ex-girlfriend came to visit him, she would be led into believing that it was all over between her and the guy. nike womens shoes The girl took all those rather well, often trying to casually tease him about his different girlfriends, or so, as it seemed! In fact, the girl often wept in secret whenever she saw him with another girl, but she was too proud to admit it. Still, every Christmas, she returned, hoping to re-kindle some form of romance. But each time, she returned to Vancouver feeling disappointed.
Finally she decided that she could not play that game any longer. puma mens shoes Therefore, she confronted him and professed that after all those years, he was still the only man that she had ever loved. mens puma shoesAlthough the guy knew of her feelings for him, he was still taken back and have never expected her to react that way. He always thought that she would slowly forget about him over time and come to terms that it was all over between them. nike shox Although he was touched by her undying love for him and wanted so much to accept her again, he remembered why he rejected her in the first place-she was not the one he wanted. nike 360 air maxSo he hardened his heart and turned her down cruelly. nike running shoesSince then, three years have passed and the girl never return anymore. They never even wrote to each other. NIKE air shoes The guy went on with his life..... still searching for the one but somehow deep inside him, he missed the girl.
On the Christmas of 1995, he went to his friend's party alone. "Hey, how come all alone this year? Where are all your girlfriends? What happened to that Vancouver babe who joins you every Christmas?", asked one of his friend.nike air max He felt warm and comforted by his friend's queries about her, still he just surged on.
Then, he came upon one of his many girlfriends whom he once requested to pose as his steady. He wanted so much to ignore her ..... not that he was impolite,wholesale nike shoes but because at that moment, he just didn't feel comfortable with those girlfriends anymore. nike shox torchIt was almost like he was being judged by them. The girl saw him and shouted across the floor for him. Unable to avoid her, he went up to acknowledge her.
"Hi......how are you? Enjoying the party?" the girl asked.
"Sure.....yeah!", he replied.
She was slightly tipsy..... must be from the whiskey on her hand.
