Smallville 2010 Wall Calendar
I received my Smallville 2010 calendar in the mail today, and I was (pleasantly) surprised to see that it doesn't look anything like the picture on Amazon. All the pics are from S8, and most of them are from the new promo shots. I scanned the front and back covers, in case anyone wants to check it out before they decide whether or not to order it. My scanner is small, and not that great, but at least you can get a pretty good idea of what to expect.





Here is the front cover. My scanner is too small to fit the whole calendar, so the image is chopped off at the bottom. The pic is the same as the last one on the back. The background color is also more of a golden tan. Click twice for BIGGER.



Here is the back cover. I scanned it in two parts and then put them together to make one image. Click twice for BIGGER.



Each month also has a small promo pic from a S8 episode. I'm really happy I ordered it, I love it!

Pretty! I think I'll have to get one this year. I didn't get a 2009 calendar because it looked to be very similar to the 2008 one.

The image on Amazon made it look like they were using really old pics again (I think the cover they show is a pic from Justice?), but I ordered it anyway. And it turned out to be gorgeous! \o/

Wow! Thanks so much for scanning and sharing! I didn't know the calendar was ready to be shipped! I was waiting until it was released to order it.

My one complaint: I know that the calendars are always a season behind, but it really burns my butt that they have TWO dead characters in the calendar for next year.

*heads off to Amazon.com*

Well, I don't know if there's much they can do about that. Jimmy and Davis may both be dead, but they were both still a big part of the season (I was actually happy to see the pic of Jimmy, I'm going to miss AA). I don't know why they had to have two months devoted to Davis, though. I'd much rather have another month of Clark by himself!

looks lovely! I'll probably get mine around Christmas. The last 2 years I've gotten mine at a calendar store. ;)

thank u for sharing!

What's even better is if you can find it at a post-Christmas sale! :) Although I thought it was very reasonably priced on Amazon.

I'm glad to share. It's frustrating to me that the web sites that sell it don't show you what you're getting before you order it.

The page with Jimmy made me happy and sad at the same time. I'm going to miss AA.

Hmmm, I'd almost be interested, but 2 pics of Davis???? Yuk!

Thank you so much for the scans! I'm glad Clark appears in several pics, that's an improvement! But Davies in September, the month I was born? That's terrible! lol

I'm glad you were pleasantly surprised! Thanks for posting this!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 5th, 2009 12:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
I have to ask, why was Davis the only character who was featured by himself in two different months? I know I'm biased, but I would much rather have had another month of Clark! But then, I want Clark (and Tom) in every month! :)

I'm glad to give everyone a sneak peek. We deserve to know what we're getting before we buy it.

For the November picture it almost looks like they photoshopped the June and July pictures together.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 5th, 2009 01:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
It's weird, if you look at all the promo pics for this season, it kind of looks like Lois was photoshopped into all of them. Look at the one for January, you can't see Lois's feet, which is odd. And in the December pic she's off to the side, apart from everyone else. It makes me wonder if Erica's shots were done at a different time.

And hey, you! *waves* How are you doing? Is work still killing you?
theclexfactor From: theclexfactor Date: August 5th, 2009 11:51 am (UTC) (Link)
I need one!

Also, I adore your new header, lol. That was my favorite part of the panel.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 5th, 2009 01:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
I really do like it! Finally, some new pics!

Isn't that header awesome? fotw_sv made it. I love it.
chrisluvstommy From: chrisluvstommy Date: August 5th, 2009 12:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
Awesome!! I was going to order mine through them too!!

I love the S6 promo's but I am very glad to see we get the S8 promo's for the new calender !

Thanks

OH who's June is it ED or TW? If it's TW I'm gonna pass out cause that's my month LOL
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 5th, 2009 01:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
I buy everything through Amazon. They're fast, cheap, and they don't charge sales tax. :)

June is Lois by herself, in both the main pic and the smaller one. The two quotes are:

"Smart and sassy Lois Lane (Erica Durance) has truly found her home at the Daily Planet alongside Clark Kent."

"A triumphant Lois always gets her story, no matter what danger it puts her in!"

Thats pretty nice, but I'll buy a SV calender when its 12 months of Tom. Full cast photos are OK too, but Tom must appear every month, or its not for me. :D

tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 5th, 2009 01:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
I agree, Clark should appear in every month, and of course I'd vastly prefer an all-Tom calendar, but I'll take what I can get. :)

That was the first thing I noticed! Of course I want to see Clark/Tom every month, but if anyone is going to have more than one month all to himself, it should be the star! It makes me curious about who decides these things.

Hey, all those people are fully clothed! THEY FORGOT JUSTIN!!! O.O

;)
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 5th, 2009 06:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
hee! He is very hard to spot with his shirt on. You have to look for the hair that looks like it was combed with an egg beater. ;)

I wonder if Callum Blue knows about the Smallville Nekkid Clause that says the new guy has to have the most shirtless scenes. We already know BAG has one, and he's only in two episodes. But the giant glowing kryptonite heart sticking out of his chest kind of ruins the effect.

We live in fear that Tom's first official act as co-executive producer was to put the kibosh on any future shirtless scenes for Clark. OTOH, we did see a Clois sex scene in the S9 trailer with a lot of bare skin, so maybe not. What? These are critical issues! :)

Thanks so much for the scans! What are all those people doing in my TW er.. Smallville calendar?? If you don't mind I'll post the scans at TWU, with credit of course!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 9th, 2009 01:12 am (UTC) (Link)
I know! I would pay twice as much if the calendar were nothing but Tom! :)

Share away, I think people should know what they're buying! Every single site I've been to that sells this calendar has the wrong image posted, and of course they don't even let you see the individual months.
