Mayhem is, somewhat ironically, one of the least random parts of the board. I really don't know how that happened.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (25 July 2016 - 06:34 AM)

Not even close.

@  MEDdMI : (25 July 2016 - 05:51 AM)

What, Mayhem isn't random enough???

@  NotVeryKnightly : (25 July 2016 - 04:02 AM)

This place never feels random enough in that respect.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 July 2016 - 02:10 AM)

I thought that was snarking at random strangers without fear of retribution.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 July 2016 - 07:22 PM)

Topic-specific threads are the main feature of messageboards like this, you know.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 July 2016 - 07:21 PM)

You should ask that in the TFWiki thread.

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 07:18 PM)

there's a pewdiepie video promoting Transformers Earth Wars and it is an official promotion video, does this mean he should get a tfwiki page?

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2016 - 07:01 PM)

I thought King Kong '05 was pretty great! I just wish I hadn't watched it as a double feature with that movie about the island with the giant bugs.

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 04:46 PM)

yeah it was long as hell, it took me several days to finish it.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 11:58 AM)

maybe this new one won't take half a day to watch all the way through...

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 11:00 AM)

I believe this new Kong movie will not be as good as the 2005 one.

@  Pennpenn : (24 July 2016 - 08:52 AM)

You'd figure something like that would get a pass, some kind of grandfather clause since the name is already intractably established.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 08:15 AM)

"DS-1 Orbital Battle Station." That's the official classification...

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 08:04 AM)

now that Hasbro can't use the word "Death" on the packaging of their toys, what will they call the Death Star?

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 07:44 AM)

It's in the comic con trailer and seems like a hideous waste. I guess the show makers have no reverence for Doctor Who like they do Star Trek.

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 04:20 AM)

Which is the height of quality for Family Guy jokes...

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 04:00 AM)

David Tennent has done a cutaway for Family Guy. Don't get to excited it was a fart joke.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 03:16 PM)

Ooh, sounds neat.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 01:16 PM)

Yeah, the first was definitely the weakest of the three. Really looking forward to the next issue; judging by the preview for it, it's delving into Karza and Shazraella's past and Microspace's exact political situation.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 01:11 PM)

I was ambivalent about the first issue, but the quality stepped up in the second and again in the third.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:37 AM)

And yes, Micronauts is great! I enjoyed the first three issues quite a lot.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:36 AM)

Cave Carson looks really cool as well, so I can't be too saddened about that.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 06:29 AM)

I ended up checking it out, and it's pretty damn neat.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 06:28 AM)

So. Micronauts, huh?

@  Maruten : (23 July 2016 - 03:49 AM)

Oh, it's only backups in "Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye". Still. Onboard.

@  Maruten : (23 July 2016 - 03:44 AM)

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

@  Maruten : (23 July 2016 - 03:43 AM)

I didn't think I was interested but OH DEAR GOD WONDER TWINS yesssssssss

@  Arthur Burlo : (22 July 2016 - 06:11 PM)

"about time" ???????????????????? :(

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2016 - 05:08 PM)

There was a shooting near a shopping mall in Munich, currently eight or nine people are dead. Three suspects, still at large.

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2016 - 05:07 PM)

About time...

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2016 - 05:07 PM)

So now it's Germany's turn to be the target of what appears to be aterrorist attack.

working title: "absurd sentai loser patrol"


Imagine a sentai team comprised of three best friends who, by all appearances, are total slackers.

The kind of slacker who seems to live on pizza, anime, and old role-playing games.

Get dressed up? Not unless they're going to church or somehow seemingly land a sales job.

Get out of the house? Only if they have to.

Get a life? Too busy whipping out the Jane's guides in order to foment house rules for Axis & Allies.

Good guys. Bad guys. Everyone takes one look at them and dismisses them outright as not worth the time.


...which is what they thrive on.

You see, they aren't slacking because they're lazy.

They slack because they can afford to.

Patrol Safety Orange has an advanced degree in business; when he's not working as a consultant, he's contributing to textbooks and scholarly works. Oh, and he's also a knife nut.

Patrol Mint Green is a B-list celebrity chef who fought the infamous "Pinto Bean Battle" on an episode of Titanium Chef. Which was nothing compared to the fact that he put himself through cooking school by working for the Border Patrol.

Patrol Sandstone is a professional athlete (he specializes in marathons but does other sports as well). He's also a street brawler of some renown among the underworld, who tend to shy away from him lest they get hammered.

The three deliberately cultivate an image of being lazy and pathetic in their real lives in order to throw everyone off concerning their real capabilities; they're all well known in their respective worlds, but those worlds are so comparatively obscure that even the people in their subdivision don't recognize them.

So whenever the government needs an alien invasion thwarted, a drug kingpin overthrown, or a hostage rescued, our three heroes pry themselves up off of the couch long enough to show the world just how awesome they really are.

Thoughts?

Thanks.

Sounds like a good comedy setup. A bit like giving some of The Big Bang Theorys characters superpowers and running with it. Or maybe Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps witih superpowers, but with your idea of them being so smart they aim to be stupid as a defence mechanism. It certainly turns the 'secret identity' cliche on its head.

I like the Safety Orange and Mint Green names.

Also, what do you think would happen if any of the 'cool' heroes, if they're are others in this idea, found out who these guys are. Wonder how they'd take it.

As a joke, I was thinking of also having is to that there's a team of "proper" heroes afoot complete with a female Patrol Red as the leader.

They're all total professionals at what they do, and have all the gadgets & gear.

Thing is, Patrol Red isn't in on the joke.

The rest of her team has figured out that they're the smokescreen for the other three: they go in and handle missions that are too risky or too dangerous for normal civil servants, but not so complicated as to need the trio showing up. As a result, they're the ones the bad guys expect to deal with each time.

Patrol Red, meanwhile, actually knows the trio in real life but is so absolutely convinced of their supposed shortcomings that she won't even give them the time of day. She regards herself as being married to her job, and sees neither of the three as being worthy of her attention.

Mecha ideas:


Patrol Safety Orange - Hurricane Blade

Vehicle mode: Commanche Scout helicopter with twin winch systems on the sides and twin machine guns under the nose

Combat mode: Winch systems open up to reveal hidden rocket launchers

Mecha mode: Tail becomes legs, nose becomes arms, machine guns mount to shoulders, blades reveal from under arms, winch systems rotate into place.

Patrol Mint Green - Thunder Truck

Vehicle mode: hot-rodded El Camino knock-off with a massive engine in the bed, equally massive exhaust pipes, and a spoiler.

Combat mode: suspension elevates, revealing grappling hook launchers. gatling gun emerges from the front grille.

Mecha mode: engine & bed section becomes legs. hood opens up to reveal gatling gun and punching dagger. Hood and sides become arms.

Patrol Sandstone - Sandstorm Jeep

Vehicle mode: Willy's Jeep redone as a hovercraft, complete with roof and oversized cargo pods in rear.

Combat mode: cargo pods open up to reveal twin 90mm beam cannons

Mecha mode: cargo pods separate, revealing massive metallic boxing gloves. Similar transform to Thunder Truck, with cannons mounting to the back of the robot and gloves going over fists.
