At least in animated he was more driven than just "loyal bootlick".

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 08:29 AM)

Oof, That's a huge downgrade

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 September 2020 - 02:35 AM)

After rewatching Animated Sound and Fury, in my head canon Titans Return Soundwave is that Soundwave.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:09 PM)

On an unrelated note: I just got the BBTS email about kingdom pre-orders... and even the stuff I don't want I'm perfectly willing to get if it means I can have the rest of it.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:08 PM)

It's digimon. So first one, then the other.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

50/50 odds, it's either a helicopter with limbs, or a scantily-clad human with heli blades on their back. If female, 90% odds on the second one.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2020 - 12:39 PM)

I read that as "Helicoptermon" and wondered what kind of Digimon that was.

@  Bass X0 : (26 September 2020 - 12:35 PM)

Helicopter-mom, transform!

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 September 2020 - 11:58 PM)

Aw I scratched the hood of my 35th anniversary Bluestreak. Fortunately he's in robot mode a lot.

No decoration could improve the wall more than Knockout himself

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2020 - 05:04 PM)

The wall could use some decorating, though. Maybe a nice shelf or a portrait.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2020 - 01:00 PM)

And then Knockout was in the wall again.

@  Sabrblade : (24 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Knockout: "Ooh, sorry, Lord Megatron. The correct word was... 'Decepticon'."

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 September 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Knockout: *while doing a crossword puzzle* Lord Megatron, whats a ten letter word for disappointment? | Megatron: ...... Starscream.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 September 2020 - 01:20 PM)

@Bass X0 Shockwave did it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 11:56 AM)

At least it's not Suntwerker.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 September 2020 - 06:16 AM)

@  Nevermore : (22 September 2020 - 06:13 AM)

@  Paladin : (22 September 2020 - 05:52 AM)

@  Telly : (21 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

i dont think theyre due for release until november. at least thats when target says ill get trailbreaker and sunstreaker. thought the wiki says theyre out in singapore

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 September 2020 - 06:01 PM)

Has wave 3 actually reached anywhere yet?

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 September 2020 - 04:40 PM)

A few more Bearimy's for Earthrise wave 3 to reach the UK

@  Spiritofeigh... : (20 September 2020 - 05:07 PM)

@  Spiritofeigh... : (20 September 2020 - 04:38 PM)

Hey, new to the boards

@  RichardT1977 : (20 September 2020 - 02:29 PM)

I had an idea for a Spiral Zone/Go-Busters crossover fanfic...

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

I loved what was there, and think it's pretty ripe for "renegades" style reboot.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:13 PM)

It's a shame as I loved Spiral Zone, and the design from the Japanese Toyline of the same name are fantastic, I adore the monowheel motorbike.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Hasbro doesn't seem to have any interest in doing anything with the TV show, haven't greenlit any attempt to rerelease it, and there have been approaches, so I think it may be aother one of Tonka's legal carcrashes where everyone involved owns a piece and it's not really worth anyone sticking their neck out to claim ownership.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I feel that homages and references would be a fun way to expand the GI Joe brand, and give a little love to lines that are unlikely to be acknowledged beyond such capacity.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I was under the impression that Bandai was more the character design aspects, not story or characters.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:55 PM)

Also isn't it in rights limbo, given how it's loosely based on concepts from a BanDai series much like GoBots?

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:52 PM)

We don't need a Spiral Zone reboot, in a decade or so we'll be living it.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 12:49 PM)

Yeah, but it would fundamentally change the base premise of both gijoe and spiral zone. It's either not the world spanning threat it was, or the zone riders are backed up by a competent force. Either way, you compromise the context of both.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:19 PM)

Akin to what was done with Matt Tracker in 2008.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

Again, not a PURE transplant, but an integration of ideas and concepts into the world of GI Joe.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

@Wonko The Cobra Overlord, with help from Dr. Mindbender and Cesspool, develops machines capable of generating a mind-controlling fog. GI Joe stalwarts Flint, Airtight, Lifeline, and Psyche-Out are joined by Colonal Courage to infiltrate these zones and disable the machines. Figures would sport hostile environment suits (Eco warriors cross with Spiral Zone) and make new versions of the mono-wheel vehicles.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 September 2020 - 09:39 AM)

Hasbroverse.2 with bought properties: Bravestarr, Ulysses 31, Galaxy Rangers, Shadow Raiders, Manta Force, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, Mighty Orbots, Jem and Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines. Seamless.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 08:32 AM)

While acknoledging spiral zone would be pretty boss, I doubt they could actively integrate it into anything else: given the scale of the villains deeds.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:03 AM)

COPS, Spiral Zone, Shadow Strikers, Action Man, Centurions, MegaForce. They wouldn’t replicate the old lines, but simply acknowledging their existence would be nifty.

Okay not stupid, but a catchall for the idea that started in my thread.
 
I know the idea of a RPG thread like the one that's in Allsparkle was discussed and there was some interest (including from myself!) and wanted to see how much interest there was - and some ideas.
 
So, ideas? Settings? Rules? Etc.
 
I definitely think if we do it there needs to be a GM, of sorts - so also if anyone wants to throw their hat into the ring for that we could start figuring out some structure (I know Mayhem is to structure as oil is to water) but if it's all going to be self-contained in one thread there probably should be some level of order.

Reposting my suggestion for the setting: post-apocalyptic urban fantasy.

 

Like a bombed-out city in the middle of nowhere, all sorts of interesting sources for strange occurrences - mutations caused by lingering radiation, ancient magic, advanced tech.

It is a good setting, and easily explains most people's unique characters. I think EES called it New Londokyork, which is hilarious. I could see an 'official' name being made from big city names, cause no one can remember what city it actually was - but everyone simply calls it the city of Mayhem or something as a title.

Agreed. A megacity like that could allow for all kinds of weird and warped escapades.

You could pick anything from steampunk battles. Ancient mech being used for conquest. Magical knights, magical girls. Even a sortof futuristic Fate type story

As for a GM, i know i couldn't do it. The closest i've come to RP'ing is the recent Vampire/Wolf Horde thing that had Caldwin change his name. I've got plenty of (hopefully good' ideas, but no ability to structure a storyline or make the rules.

The best i got is are basic ideas for my GSO character which i'll repost here.

Another question might be, how balanced and limited would you want your abilities to be?

Finally got an answer for this question.
Since GSO is basically Batman, most of my abilities would be martial arts, tech, stealth and detective based. Although i do have three special powers that i'd have.
A Katana thats either a high frequency blade or a Purple Lightsaber.
The use of my Mayhem Shadows powers to travel anywhere via shadows.
A special attack that works similar to a Blindside attack from Star Ocean Last Hope. I.e. if i can pull it off, i get to cause major damage to my oppent while his defences are down.
I generally look like the Play Arts Kai Variant Batman that i mostly use for my avatar. So if a Mayhem RP ever does happen, i'd look as close to this as i can get.

I think our GM would have to be a very knowledgeable sort about the game design, and would also have to be willing to deal with the task of keeping people reined in so that everything doesn't get unbalanced - which would require someone who doesn't mind being a bit of a prick when necessary.

 

I mean, I know who comes to mind there, but...

The people I'd think to ask first would be Link or Caboose, but they're both pretty judicious with their time commitments and normally kinda swamped. Can't help thinking that I'd actually join the RP if you could drag Mana into doing it, though~
