yeah im only on issue 4 and its only been like 30 minutes since i started. lots of splash pages and very little dialog

@  unitremover : (27 March 2017 - 04:47 PM)

I read it for the first time about a year ago and my main problem with it was just how little content there seemed to be in the individual issues. I remember thinking that it took probably three issues before I felt like it had really delivered a "proper" issue's worth of story.

@  Telly : (27 March 2017 - 04:33 PM)

id rather read about the galaxy-wide war than yet another story on earth. thats one of the things i loved about formerly r.i.d. but when they went back before combiner wars i lost interest. i read til all are one because of this.

@  Rycochet : (27 March 2017 - 04:24 PM)

It's one of those stories that gets slightly better with age because you know that IDW comics recover, but at the time it was a massive step back, a complex universe where the war was being fought across the galaxy swept away offpanel and replaced by n episode of the cartoon with blood..And there's a fan character we were told we were going to love, inserted to lecture the Autobots.

@  Bass X0 : (27 March 2017 - 04:12 PM)

Its not a bad story really, but then I've read actual bad TF event stories by IDW that came later. There is one major turnabout that happens off panel with no explanation that should have been addressed better though.

@  RichardT1977 : (26 March 2017 - 03:25 PM)

Another thing I liked about The Prince of Egypt was that it explained (without even having to say it outright) why Moses was chosen to deliver the Israelites from Egypt. Someone who had been raised among the slaves would have had too much bitterness and would want to go in throwing the wrath of God on all the Egyptians (or at least the royal family) until they all burned alive. But Moses had been raised as a member of the royal family, so he still thought of them as family. He wanted to reach a peaceful solution if at all possible.

@  Evac : (26 March 2017 - 03:03 PM)

Hell, The Emperor's New Groove is easily the funniest animated film ever. Disney managed to do what Dreamworks tried to do, and they did it right.

@  Evac : (26 March 2017 - 03:02 PM)

None of their "funny" movies are anywhere near as funny as Aladdin or The Emperor's New Groove.

@  Evac : (26 March 2017 - 03:02 PM)

Its a pity Dreamworks devolved into a company that churned out "funny" films filled with pop culture references.

@  RichardT1977 : (26 March 2017 - 03:00 PM)

(also at the end of that scene, the camera pans up from the Egyptian skyline to the night sky and the most prominent constellation is Orion. Which the Egyptians associated with Osiris)

@  RichardT1977 : (26 March 2017 - 02:59 PM)

Yeah I give them full credit for treating the Last Plague with all the solemness it deserves.

@  Evac : (26 March 2017 - 02:59 PM)

It freed the Israelites, but Moses sure hated seeing what it did to his brother and all the normal non-slave owning people who didn't do anything wrong to the Israelites.

@  Evac : (26 March 2017 - 02:58 PM)

And it actually portrays God murdering children as a tragic thing, something most other adaptations disturbingly don't do.

@  RichardT1977 : (26 March 2017 - 02:57 PM)

So that what He told Moses becomes, "I'll lay the smackdown on Egypt, but I should warn you it's only gonna make Rameses dig in his heels more until I have no choice but to break him fully."

@  RichardT1977 : (26 March 2017 - 02:56 PM)

It also describes the "hardening of the Pharoah's heart" as his natural reaction to the plagues rather than an intentional mental override by God.

@  Evac : (26 March 2017 - 02:54 PM)

Hell, it actually portrays the Plagues as something that's bad and treats most of the Egyptian people as not deserving that shit. "All the innocent who suffer from your stubbornness and pride" and all that.

@  Evac : (26 March 2017 - 02:53 PM)

I'm a Christian, but Prince of Egypt is one of the few religious movies I'll willingly watch, because it's actually good instead of being self-rightous preachy nonsense, batshit crazy propaganda or schmaltzy trash. It also has a great soundtrack with music that I actually put up there with some of Disney's best stuff.

@  Evac : (26 March 2017 - 02:45 PM)

Dreamworks's best movies will always be the Dragons movies and The Prince of Egypt.

Well, this sort of thing will make a lot of people very happy and a select few very angry, lol. This is our first run: Leone in inverted colours. We will be doing a clear "Fireguts" version next, and then move on to Trizer and Shuffler. We are undecided on whether we do Kirk, Rodney and Loafer.

Wow, nice work. I'd love to be able to get some of the Headmaster Warriors but WAYYY out of my price range. If they were magically cheap one could have a lot of fun with them. No shortage of headless Headmasters floating around. Customizers would love them.

Looked up the real Lione. Love that it appears you flipped the colors. Link. That's going to save a handful of folks who have the real thing a little lost sleep. And should give "haters" less of a reason to hate.

Good luck. Now you've got me brainstorming on what to do with it. Hmm, weird crossover Lion-O + Undecided Transformer for the win! icon-blitz.gif

In my humble opinion (and since the poster said they weren't sure if they would actually reproduce all 6) I'd rank the Headmaster Warriors as follows in terms of how interesting the head might be to a custom

1. Lione
2. Loafer
3. Toraizer
4. Kirk
5. Rodney
6. Shuffler

But damn, check them out yourself, just about every one is a home run. Shuffler might have a ho hum face...but it's a freaking ELEPHANT. Custom Elephant Man. Come on people, I don't have to come up with these ideas for you! Hehe.

I'm not sure about Rodney, but I'd be interested in Kirk and Loafer becuase their head modes are really nice looking.

Another nice idea might be to try and color coordinate them to existing large Headmaster Autobot and Decepticon bodies (Chromedome, Mindwipe, etc). There's plenty of headless Headmasters on eBay and elsewhere that could do with some new, different heads.

I posted this on three boards and checked last night and there was nothing over here. I was worried that tfw2005 was the only board who knew what these are, lol.

Prices aren't going to be set until he has made at least ten copies and can assess how easy or difficult they are to make. This should be about Monday-Wednesday. Then I might organize a waiting list. I think it's wierd that you guys want the human ones and aren't that interested in the $1000+ Shuffler.

I want all of them. And I echo the sentiment that the colors from the Headmasters anime be utilized where possible.

I've already got Kirk and Loafer so I'm definitely interested in the animal Headmasters. And Rodney.

Put me on your waiting list for sure!

Colour me interested! I want all of them too.

Maybe cast them all in "Autobot" and "Decepticon" versions. The bots could all be very primary coloured. Blues, reds, etc. While the cons could be darker. Purples, dark greens, blacks, etc.
