Action Force Top Trumps

Postby Hopper » 14 Aug 2013 14:31

I've been playing around with the idea of doing a Palitoy Action Force Top Trumps - involving :enemy: :sas: :zforce: :qforce: :space: using the BAF datafiles as a base for the illustration and info.

My father in law is a graphic designer and printer, and could get them printed for small money.
I know there may be issues with the copyright on the illustration, but was wondering how that would work, and if there are ways of sidestepping such details given that no profit would be made.

Anyway, just wondering what everyone makes of the idea, the card, and any advice.
And importantly, do we have any high resolution scans of the datafile illustrations?

I think it's a great idea. I guess Jim has scans of all the data files?

Fear Factor ... NEUNZIG? :shock:

Is that before he puts his "game" face on? What about :major: ? Or :eagle: ? Or :stake: ?

What about the :muton:? Imagine the size of his CPU.

Imagine the size of his balls...

Yeah, I reckon :baron: is approaching red balloon territory in terms of Fear Factor

:major: is a 90 in Fighting Ability, 85 Fear Factor
:eagle: is a 95 in Fighting Ability, 80 Fear Factor
:stake: is a 85 Fighting Ability, 70 Fear Factor

But feel free to express an opinion!

The whole project is in its planning stage, nothing is set in stone, and part of the reason I started this thread is to solicit input. Who is scarier? :baron: or :major: , or even :muton:

I bloody well hope not! I'll have to fight a duel or something... and in any case, mine will be :punch: better!

No, if that is the case, then all well and good.
