Since youve never ridden Astro Blasters Ill make it clear, static humanoid sculptures do not look tacky or out of place.
I've actually ridden both the Cali and Orlando versions, and I still think static characters look gash....But I guess Zurg is ok because his head moved, and in Toy Story he had that same limited range of movement. But thematically, I think Buzz is one of the weakest Disney attractions. The only real impressive thing is the Buzz animatronic in the queue.
If it were up to me do to a JL ride from scratch, I'd probably do a storyline where Lex Luthor has taken a city hostage and planted bombs or some other evil gizmos across the city, and you have to whip around and disarm them.
The 3D scenes would be boss battles with Lex in his battlesuit , or his aircraft etc where you are assisting a member of the JL to fight him(you might shooot at weak points, or at waves of weapons coming at you)
Instead of spaceship scene in this ride, youd naturally infiltrate lex luthors hideout, and do as much damage inside as you can and shut down the central control of his evil plot. Final battle would be lex v superman, before narrowly escaping.
I'm sure this would be cool in real life, but I'm not gonna get hung up that this wasn't the one story option out of hundreds that didn't get built
Gazza argues against me through his desire for MW to do as well as possible monetarily
No I argue because in the nuances of a theme park attraction aimed at a wide audience certain things work, and certain things don't.
Im going to be banned for pointing out that djrapper is a circlejerking mod like a lot of teenagers are, so I wont be back to mention that I enjoyed the ride for the ride.
And I will do just that, see you all whenever.
Translation: I'm mad that I couldn't convince people, so I'll throw in some random rudeness for the sake of it (which is wrong because DjRappa is not a Teen), and go home, taking the ball with me."
