movie!alchemy stuff~  
Due to the recent new movie trailer and subsequent screenshots, I thought this would be a fun task to figure out:

I tried to figure out Al's clappy glove array design. If a line didn't appear on both gloves, I assumed it was a crease/fold in the glove. I know the proportions have to be a bit off, but I think it's not too far off...

Yep, yet ANOTHER person posting about the movie. x.x

=\ Maybe you should mark it for spoilers, just in case...

Nice clipping and recreation, though~ It looks about right to me, but then, I'm not even gonna try to strain my eyes looking at it too closely. n.n"

Well, I do say it's movie!alchemy stuff in the subject. Movie=spoilers. I don't think we have people are that un-intelligent here.

^___^" True, but you'd be really surprised. If I hadn't seen some really dumb people before, I'd agree with you.

Either way...n__n

Then it's their own fault for being stupid if they click it.

That looks pretty accurate. ^^

That's a weird looking array..o_o;

My thought as well. ^^; Maybe someone who knows about alchemy symbols and their meaning and try and break it down in some way. =D I know certain triangles are fire, circles are earth or something.. and stuff... *babbles*

symbols.com has an extensive library of alchemical sigils.

I went here, and the only clues I've found is that Al's transmutation array has something to do with double fire. ^^;;

My question is....is that Al? Because the last time I checked, Ed was the only one with gold eyes. Al has blue eyes. (not refering to the 'otherworld' Al in the trailer.) If it was Ed...it actually would explain alot with my theroy about the film. But, I don't wanna post rumors, so I'll leave my post at that.

Yes, we're sure that's Al. There are other pictures to confirm it.

And Amestris!Al actually doesn't have blue eyes, only German!Al does. Amestris!Al has darker, more brownish gold eyes.

It is Al because if you look at this image from the offical site , it's hard to see, but his eyes ARE gray-ish colored *had to zoom in to get the corrent color*. So hai, it is Al that we keep seeing ^^

XD Al wants to score with the chicks so he decided to pose as Ed while Ed's being chased by Dragons in Munich. XD

XD I suppose it was easier to be Edo than to be Mustang.

I noticed that in the screen shots someone posted from the trailer (which is what I used to figure out the array) that Al's eyes were almost too much of a gold color like Ed's... but then I think that might be cause of JPEG compression with the hair right night to the eye, and that fact it was taken from an animated sequence and not a nice still... So I blame those factors for Al's eye color being slightly off in the trailer.
ACacdragonmaster on March 29th, 2005 09:10 pm (UTC)
Y'know, I don't get why people make such a big deal about Al's eyes being gold-ish. Wasn't gold eyes the reason whatshisname knew the Trighams to be fake? (in the Japanese, not the dub >_>) *shrugs*
Zranazrana on March 29th, 2005 09:47 pm (UTC)
I thought in the manga that Ed and Al had the same color eyes, in the anime it shows Al's eyes as a gray color.

And I remember that gold eye comment from watching the fansubs--but obviously they can't tell Al's eye color since only a few people in the series ever saw pre-armor Al, so I think the gold eyes was an assumption from knowing Ed's eye color.

Or something like that. Damn I made that sentence long...

That border resembles the ouroboros, so does it represent Envy?
