    Awesome. :bay  Nice to see a new shot of Evac in all of his glory. He's got a really nifty design.

    NBC/Universal employees are on the ride now for a special preview night. There's a 1:1 All Spark replica for $225!

    I asked if he saw a deluxe Evac there but hasn't answered. Edit: No sign of Evac yet :(

    IIRC, this is using the same technology that was in Paramount's Amazing Spiderman ride.

    I rode that thing SO many times because my dad loved the hell out of it, and I had to agree with him. I'm still flabbergasted at how they made me feel like I was falling at one point when the vehicle car wasn't moving along the track AT ALL, just motion simulator pistons working and the film.

    He said it was about 1.5 ft square. That might even be a 2:1 scale or bigger, because I think the one Shia carried around was only about 7 in square. He said it was made of pewter so it's got some weight to it.
