Another great 90's animated film is, of course, The Iron Giant.

@  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.

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.

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 March 2017 - 02:40 PM)

Yup.

@  OrionPax44 : (26 March 2017 - 12:48 AM)

My friends and I sold them in college for fundraising. We often had boxes of them sitting around. I can still smell them. I won't be touching them again unless I'm forced to.

@  OrionPax44 : (25 March 2017 - 02:37 PM)

I love love love the hot Krispy Kreme donuts. They opened one in my area and for the first few weeks there was a line out the door of people waiting for hot donuts.

@  Bass X0 : (25 March 2017 - 08:37 AM)

I'm wondering if one of the Jokers is a TRU exclusive: the one I went to had tons of White Jacket Joker, and has a differently-styled Suicide Squad logo (black with ranbow sparkles around it, compared to the white/silver logo on the lone Deadshot I saw).

I really can't figure these things out. Amazon claims the evening-gown Harley is an Amazon exclusive.

 

So if those are both true, you need two exclusives from two different stores to build Croc's jacketed arms and hands.

Some early SDCC stuff:

 

From Mattel, we've got several new Collect-And-Connect lines featuring characters like Dr. Psycho, Wonder Girl, King Shark, Reaper (from Batman: Year Two), and a plethora of DCTV and TDKR figures.

 

http://news.toyark.c...ckmaster-211968

 

 

And from DC Collectibles, lots more Icons stuff that I can't decide if I care about or not, but much more importantly, Superman: The Animated Series figures.

I'm conflicted, some of those Matty BAFs look nifty, but I know they're prototypes, and the Matty factory craptomizer will do it's work in production.

I love the Expression Pack for Batman. I think I would pretty much always have him displayed with the Shocked/Horrified expression.

 

I really want to like the Bombshells Wonder Woman but when translated to three dimensions she looks positively nutty.

Seriously, those Bombshell figures are horrifying.

 

I'm leaning towards that expression pack though.  Hmmmm.  Batman scandalized at everything?  Yes, I like that idea.

Don't know if anyone is really interested in pictures but on a random impulse buy, I got the $10 12 inch simplified figure for Wonder Woman that's the equivalent of Marvel's Titan Heroes. In not expecting it to be some DCU Classics or Marvel Legends level of engineering, it's not a bad toy as a toy. What is hilarious is that it has better than the $10 6 inch BvS Wonder Woman figure that seemed to be aiming slightly higher. Not more, since it's the same number of joints, but larger range. She lost knees in favor of exterior thigh swivels + more range due to the lack of a skirt. Just felt like they made smarter choices.

It also got me officially curious about Batman Unlimited but that's another discussion since I need to see if we have existing threads for it.

So what's this about a Walmart exclusive $100 Batcave?

I'll try to remember to take pictures next time I go (unless you found images elsewhere).

So, I dunno if it's been discussed before, but there's this leaked image of an alleged Lego Batman Movie minifigures blindbag line, including such classic characters as Surf's Up Batman, Clock King, Red Hood, Chef Joker (?), and, of all characters, Orca.

 

1476804202812.png

 

Interesting as this is on its own, it's making me wonder if the legal position on doing Lego Batman Movie blindbags is different to Lego DC or Marvel blindbags on the whole; if it's true that they can't do superhero blindbags because they're too close to being action figures, this being possible is pretty interesting.

I picked up BTAS Clayface, despite those incredibly ugly promotional photos that they used.

Surprisingly, he doesn't look bad in person.  I think that the head-sculp, while nice, isn't exactly dead-on to the animation model, but the colour and textures of the body work well enough to make him probably my favourite BTAS villain figure to date.

 

I'm not sure what they were going with the axe arm attachment, though.  The way that they oriented the blade with the curvature of the forearm, Clayface can pretty much only whack himself with the bladed edge.  Ironically, I think I'm just going to bin the pieces and display him with both actual arms.

Oof, that sounds like a Matty thing.  Hope DC Direct doesn't pick up more of their bad habits.

 

And speaking of lousy articulation!  The nuDoomsday wave all hit sub-$15 on amazon, and I ended up buying them all, despite only wanting the MOTUC-buck guys, like Snarly Armorbats here (it's fun, I have to admit).
