Magic Ball?

Should the magic ball be 'solid' or 'pure energy' in the film.
In the game it appears to be solid, but I thought It might look cooler in the film if it was just magic.
eg, It gets absorbed into Twinsens hand after he uses it.

What do you think?

I first thought solid would be better, but pure energy is better for a movie. That also makes more sence, since you can't kill someone with a ball that are as light as a plastic ball.

I agree, but just because its solid dosn't mean its 'light'.
It might be really heavy rubber lead in the middle

Uhm.. the magic ball is pure energy, when you throw it the ball becomes solid so it'll bounce.
So it's both... it's not a real ball, never has been...

By 'Solid' I mean Twinsen has to put it in his pocket.
By 'Energy' I mean Twinsen 'absorbes' it into his hand.

Maybe, but then I'm sure Twinsen wouldn't throw it as easy as he does in the games

And yep, it's probably pure energy, since the ball also automatically returns half transparent in the games.

Another reason why the ball exsist out of energy is because it consumes mana when you throw it.

Good point,
I looks like where all in agreement then, although this raises more problems.
If the ball is pure energy, and Twinsen 'absorbs it' into his hand, then can it be taken off him?
What about when his in prisson?
Maybe the ball should start off as real, but when Twinsen first uses it, it gets absorbed.
What do you think?

Twinson loses it in prison because the sendels medalion is taken away and thats what allows him to use magic.

Or maybe the tunic should be the item that makes it possible to have a magic ball: in LBA1 Twinsen gets his tunic at the same time as his ball.

This does make a plothole for LBA 2

Though that is solveble because if you read Zoe's dairy you'll read that Sendell entrusted Twinsen with magic. It might be posseble that that means that he won't need to wair the tunic to use the M bal

Twinsen The Magic Ball should definetly be pure energy in the RMP.


The Magic Ball shouldn't be an object in the movie. I think it's more like a magical thing, likeDarkFlame said, it should be absorbed by Twinsen's hand when not in use...

Welcome!

And yes, Bomba! is right. You could have better replied in that thread instead of making a new thread.

Doesn't matter, but watch out next time

Hmmmz definitely pure energie... You can make a scene about how he first uses the ball and then it comes back and 'melts' in his hand... when it changes color you can make the ball melt out of his hand and then change color

i think it's magic. when the ball bounces, it consumes energy, so it does need magic to bounce. also, the fact that it's absorbed in Twinsen's hand is cool and i think that should be how it must be shown in the movie.
that means pure magic

I think that the ball is quite cool in the preview movie, where it is a solid ball with energy around it.

But also pure energie is fine with me.
