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.

@  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.

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

DotM Vortex's head could almost work for Obsidian as is. I'd be all for a Strika/Straxus with shoulderpads folded into the chest as well.

That might be Kup colored the way he was in the Marvel comics. Notice how the head is green and the rest of him is blue.

I'm still hoping for a stack of Gobots figures:

Coptur from Tomahawk
Cykill from Wreckgar
Leader-1 from the Seeker
Turbo from Prime Bee
Scooter ... never again.
Smallfoot from Kup
Badboy from Powerglide (Or in Rattler colors)
Treds from Warpath

Adding my support for an Obsidian and Strika set. Those two deserve a lot more love as one of the truly salvageable elements of Beast Machines.

Leaving SG aside for the moment, with regards to Cosmos, the "flying saucer" mode is generally meant to show his eccentric personality and the fact he's an explorer first, warrior second. Giving him a "bad ass" space jet fighter mode just kills that.

Giving Powerglide the Seeker mold is just dumb. Not only is that form pretty much one of the most recognisably "Decepticon" molds out there, it's been established since early G1 that Powerglide is never on an equal footing with the Seekers in terms of armaments or speed, he's able to match them because he's just that good. Giving him a Seeker body just ruins that- and lets face it, that mold gets more than enough exercise.

As Randy pointed out, Ramjet makes a far better choice. Nothing about Cyc really says Fitor to me. Kup wouldn't make a very good Smallfoot either. Dirt Boss would probably work well though.

Generally, not at all a bad list. But I echo those who say Ramjet is a much better Fitor, and Dirt Boss for Smallfoot. Although given his shape, I could absolutely see Kup work as well for her. I also still think Animated Oil Slick would make a better Cy-Kill.
