Telltale. Sue. NOW!!*

Your animated Lincoln statue came out two years before this one. In fact, if I remember correctly, the first Night at the Museum came out when you debuted the Lincoln we know and love. (And if I'm wrong, please correct me.)

Just giving you a heads up since my theatre got the promo posters today for the film. And when I saw that, I screamed "DOES TELLTALE KNOW ABOUT THIS?!"

* = I'm kidding about suing.

It came out in 2005, Sam & Max Episode 4 came out in 2007, Telltale wins by two years!

Actually, that puts it in some rather sticky grey area. It takes about 2 years for a movie to be produced, so God knows when the animated Lincoln statue idea for the movie was actually put to pen for the studio.

But still, Telltale did it first.

    Woah! They stole Telltale's idea! D: How rude!

    XD Bleh, but I bet this one doesn't beat the good old S&M Lincoln. What I'd get really worried is.. if this one in the movie actually got his whole body blown off and his head would fall in love with a woman.. THEN I'd definitely sue. D<

    I still think that Telltale should sue regardless. :P

    If someone has the same idea from Telltale, regardless of when the media came out for either Telltale or the other person, then Telltale still made it first. And that may have been the most uses of the word "Telltale" in one sentence than I will ever say in my life.

    South Park did a giant animated Lincoln back in 2001. Not just that, but the episode also features David Blaine as a magician who starts a cult called "Blaintology."

    Oh yeah, I remember that episode!
    And to defeat Lincoln, the Super Friends made a giant statue John Wilkes Booth!
    It's a good thing that never happened in Telltale's version of events.
