I am not exactly sure of the year I saw it. I rented it from Blockbuster Video somewhere between the late 1990s to the early 2000s. (?)

What I remember is that it was a hand-drawn animated film. One part of the film that really sticks in my mind is a scene where a number of half human, half machines (discarded?) were digging through a pile of parts/trash to re-fit themselves. They are being observed by a couple of humans who I think had made an emergency landing on this planet. (?) All of a sudden, they are discovered by the cyborgs and the cyborgs realize that the humans are a ready supply of their damaged human parts and give chase. I especially remember the next line from one of the cyborgs, "I will wear his feet!" I recently bought a book of animated movies but the only movie description that comes close is "Titan A. E."

  • I wonder if this movie influenced A.I.: Aritificial Intelligence. The cyborgs digging in a pile of parts is reminiscent of A.I.

  • Can you speak to the style of animation? Such as Anime / Japanese, vs more US looking stuff? Apr 7, 2016 at 16:09
  • I only saw it once and so long ago . I was leaning more toward the Japanese style animation until I read an answer posted by IMDB with a collage of images from the movie " Starchaser : The Legend of Orin " . The animation stills in the collage seem to have a more American style to them . They also look familiar . IMDB also includes a quote from the actual screenplay that ends with " I will wear his feet ! " This seems to be irrefutable evidence that points to Starchaser , however , I will buy the film and watch it to dispel any doubt . Apr 7, 2016 at 23:59

1 Answer 1


Could it be Starchaser: The Legend of Orin?

enter image description here

Set on the subterranean Mine-World, a band of human worker are treated like slaves under the power of the evil overlord Zygon until one, Orin, unearths the hilt of a mythical sword that only he can master. Escaping the planet, he runs into the rogue smuggler Dagg and a pair of helpful droids and the princess, who all team up to return to the Mine-World with a plan to defeat Zygon and free Orin's enslaved people. - IMDB

The screenplay (as posted by the author Jeffrey Scott on his website) has the mentioned line.

Two more mandroids block his path. Orin runs the other way.

He killed everyone. He's dangerous.
Dangerous? Ha! I'll wear his feet.

Freg and the other mandroid run off after Orin.

Here is a bizarre collage of images.
