WDI Reveal the New Design of the TOT - Guardians of Galaxy : Mission Breakout Building at Disney's California Adventure
WDI released a new video with Joe Rhode and others Imagineers working on the transformation of DCA Tower of terror in the Guardians of Galaxy Collector fortress. They do their best to explain how they want to create a new building" which will look beautiful day and night" but the problem - if you have a look at all the articles posted on the web since the video was released a few hours ago - and all the comments on Youtube is that everybody think that it looks in fact ugly (!) As someone says in his comment on Youtube: "It doesn't look beautiful at all. It looks hideous. On top of that, it doesn't even look like any of you (save for Mr. Dangle Ear) are that excited about the project at all. This is the worst idea in the history of Disneyland and you all know it."
As for me, and with all the respect i have for Joe Rhode - and i have a LOT of respect for Joe - i have to say that i am not, too, convinced by the transformation. It's not that i really think it's ugly and i am ready to give to the Imagineers the benefit of the doubt until the opening of the new ride next year but i have the feeling that it's going to be hard to convince me that "it looks beautiful". The big problem we have here is that the TOT building can be seen almost from any point you're standing at DCA and if it happen that it looks as ugly as the fans so far think it will, then DLR will have a major problem to resolve...
Check the video below and let us know what YOU think of the new design of the building!
