I changed my mind about my power. I was to be able to create Illusions, like I can make a house look like it just blew up. Kind of like masking over the real thing with a hologram of what I’m thinking. I can also use this to make me or other people invisible. My powers are limited to a certain range though, and only if I can see the object. But I can still fly.

Sometimes I confuse even myself.

Let’s put it into two different perspectives:

Animator’s perspective:
For example, we have 15 animators involved in the project, but only 4 have the resources needed to create the Final fight scene. That means the other 11 animators (with their limited resources) can only animate their own subscenes and maybe their own fight scenes.

Character perspective:
Same scenario with only 4 animators: This doesn’t necessarily mean only the 4 animator’s characters can be in the fight scene. If these animators can build other characters that the other 11 animators have, then hurray, more characters involved in the battle scenes.

Put it this way, just because you can’t animate the big battle of Good vs. Evil doesn’t mean that your character can’t. It’s up to those animators who can to work you into their scenes.

And it looks like we’re going more towards the Evil Robot idea. As Lord_Of_The_LEGO stated in chat, better to battle against faceless automatons than the alternative. Plus, this gives all you animators a change to be creative with making robot figs and experiment with additional articulations (depending on your robot design).

If there is anyone who wants to be involved with this project but is in favor of a different antagonist, let us know.

Just to add to what I said about people with limitations or inability to fully master their powers, it allows you to think both inside and outside the box when your new found power doesn’t work. For example, it requires a lot of focus to control certain abilities, such as someone with ADD is restraining a bunch of robots using Plasma-based constructs (Green Lantern powers) when he’s distracted by something and looses focus. Add your comedic interpretation there.

I made a cool (IMO) custom robot today, that I could duplicate for my fight. I’ll get a pic up when the glue is completely set.

Maybe this robot? It might need a little tweaking to be a little more animatable though.

Sounds like a neat idea. I don’t think I’ll probably be able to be very involved, but if you’d like I could probably contribute a few matte paintings or effects shots or something.

Lech I like your number 2 idea best. ROBOTS like that. As I think I have said before I don’t think I would like to take part in the animation part but I would love to help on this progect in other ways.

I just know that LOTL is going to pass out when he sees that.
I think it looks pretty nice, but I am also against cutting/gluing LEGO.

I can handle certain types of customization, but cutting a LEGO brick is going too far. Think of it as… torture.

Some have thought of this before, and we have reached the conclusion that, no one wants to be the villain that gets killed/defeated. It just isn’t fun for them. Unless there was someone willing…

I’m willing!

I didn’t cut, I drilled! I can take the site of molten plastic and chopped up bodies, if the result looks nice. I only drilled 2 holes, and glued one thing. I didn’t say you guys had to use this, it’s just what I plan to use.
:o fftopic: I just painted my Lizard fig. It looks pretty awesome.

Let me clear up a few things, whatever robot designs you have in mind will most likely not be used as the main common robot everyone is fighting. I am giving every animator the liberty of designing their own robots to be used in their own subscenes.

Essentially, there is suppose to be a diversity of robot design. The only robot design that will be common will be the big bad ones that the main heroes will be fighting.

But, while we’re at it, in case people don’t like the idea of diverse robot designs, let’s focus on a generic design that the majority of animators can make.

Additionally, I would like people to come up with designs for the bigger, badder robots that the heroes will be up against.
