The reason I decided to look back at the early days of Lakai was because they have a new video in the works. The latest issue of Thrasher has interviews with the current team about the upcoming movie. I'm hoping they release it on DVD because I'm over the internet. It sucks that Creature only made a limited run of discs for their most recent video. (If anybody has one and wants to tape a copy, hit me up.) Anyway, the team these days consists of Mike Carroll, Rick Howard, Rick McCrank, Vincent Alvarez, Raven Tershy, Riley Hawk, Danny Brady, Stevie Perez, Jesus Fernandez, Sebo Walker, Cody Chapman, Yonnie Cruz, Simon Bannerot, Tyler Pacheco, and John Sciano. It's almost a completely different lineup from when Lakai started and then who was in Fully Flared ten years ago. That's to be expected since the company has been around for nearly 18 years. I'm interested in seeing how The Flare turns out. The premier party is tonight so people should be complaining about it on social media by tomorrow morning.
I've never dabbled in collecting any of the Powell Peralta re-issues, but the Nicky Guerrero Mask reprint looks totally awesome.
