Where is Olmec? What happend to Him? Is he ok?
« on: July 15, 2006, 07:29:41 AM »
Does anyone know these answers or have any information about Olmec himself. I really hope that those idiots at Nick didn't destroy Olmec, throw him away, or even worse give him away like they did with the Temple Guard Masks on figure it out!!!

If he is in a box in some wharehouse we need to rescue him!

Well, seeing as he was grounded to the set, I wouldn't be surprised if they had to disassemble him...

I know, it's a sad thought. :(

Yeah, and I doubt theres anything left of the legends set, seeing as it was been cancelled for 11 years now :(

The set it was taped on has been used for a whole lot of shows since, like Figure it Out, You're On!, Beat the Clock, Shop 'Til You Drop, and many more.

Yeah, and a lot of props like the Golden Idol, a shield, two Password tablets and a few other props were awarded to kids on Figure It Out.

The funny thing is, the also gave away Clarissa Explains it all props which was a show also taped in the same soundstage. There must have been a gigantic shed somewhere that had all the props left, and they just searched for an interesting one for prizes.

They used to give out the season 2 and 3 helmets on Figure It Out and there are most likely countless amounts of those helmets.... unless they used the same 12 helmets (2 helmets per partner on 6 teams) over and over again... ew... lice...

Olmec lives in a retirement home for cancelled kids' TV show characters, where he tells other old-timers (and kids who will listen) about his glory days...still with his trademark booming voice, and still referring to himself in the third person.

Thanks for the replies guys. Something tells me however that he is still out their and is all right. I wish they would put him into a museum or something. A "Legends of the Hidden Temple" themed ride in Universal would be my dream though.

At the very least they should auction him. I would seriously conisder selling my house and living in a trailer to buy Olmec, although I figure he would go for at least a million!

God Bless Olmec and Kirk, may they be reunited one day!

Thanks for the e-mail adress too, I'll e-mail him too.
