Scorpio

R.I.P., Stan Winston

It's made the L.A. Times: special effects legend Stan Winston passed away yesterday after suffering heart ailments from multiple myeloma for several years.

Quint at Ain't It Cool News has a tribute.

Stan Winston worked on Aliens, the Terminator and Jurassic Park series, the Predator films, this year's Iron Man, and an enormous number of other movies, and founded Stan Winston Studio. And I shouldn't have forgotten Edward Scissorhands, for which he built Edward's hands.

Rest in Peace, sir.
