No one? Really?

I would, but 1. I have my hands full, and 2. The topic is unfamiliar to me.

I am sorely tempted. I loved Shadowrun back in the day, but I am pretty busy for most of this next week. :(
I have this feeling that I am going to get my ranked match bit down and streetfights will have dried up.

Looks like the feeding frenzy has died down a bit.

I think most of the guys that do a bunch of street fights are already doing one right now.

You might want to have the opponent suggest a topic too. Probably not a lot of Shadowrun fans 'round these part.
I'm not a big fan of Shadowrun....don't really know too much about it. BUT...if you want to take on another topic, I'd be glad to jump in.
Gotta do a commision, so I may as well try to kill two birds with one stone.
Hozabout the topic being....THE MICRONAUTS??
If you're interested, let me know!

Dann the man. Glad you showed. I've never even heard of the Micronauts before (gasp), but I'm willing to do this. I like doing topics I'm unfamiliar with - gives me a chance to stretch and try new things. You're doing this for a commission, so I'm guessing you're gonna show up big for this one. This should keep me on my toes. Challenge accepted. Let me know your specs, and we'll get this moving. Now excuse me, I have to Google the Micronauts.
You don't know who the Micronauts are?? Sigh...kids today. I tell ya....
Anyways....glad you want to do this. Let's keep the same specs you originally had... one week from today/ b&w.
That okay with you?

Sounds good - it's on. By the way, I may be a child, but only mentally. ;)

Dann you are showing your age big time I thinkbmore people don't know the micronauts than do. ;) I think the comic book was canceled in 1988.

Yeah, yeah...I know. I was a little kid when the original comics came out and I had all the toys too....they were so freakin' cool!
BUT....I can't remember the name of the company, but another Micronauts series was released around 2002 or 2003 I think. Not as fun as the original, but they changed the names and appearances slightly. Instead of Commander Arcturus Rann, they called him Commander Ryan Archer....things like that.

Micronauts were later released by Image and then by Devil's Due. There's actually a video on youtube showing the transition from Marvel to Image. By the by, whats with all the Micronauts lately? I had to draw Micronauts this month also. Is this some kind of resurgence?
02-11-2011, 10:58 AM
Yeah I just saw that vid on Youtube. Pretty cool, actually. That series had some nice artwork. I think the new interest is because JJ Abrahms announced he was working on a Micronauts movie. That was back in '09, though.

I liked them. I game them too much credit though the first series ended in 1984 but came back and ended again in 1986. Then a feww minis since then.
The first 12 issues were the best....Fantastic art by Michael Golden and a really good story by Bill Mantlo. Great stuff!!

Ya ya gotta like it when michael golden sells out and does a toy line. I know I would. Dann, the bad thing is....I am accually too old the have played with micronauts. I was in HS when they where out. I still liked the comic book though.
Too old?...never! I wish I still had all those cool toys...I think my kids would have a blast with them.

I still have a Baron Karza and I think it was Arcturus Rann - or some such thing...basically, a white version of Baron Karza - they are the magnetic figures with their magnetic horses...it was awesome being able to turn them into minotaurs(if that's right)
The white guy was Force Commander....the good guy version of Karza. And they both could change into centaurs. The magnets are what made them all cool I think.

i didnt know they had magnets. that is pretty cool.
