Help a Hero in a Halfshell
« on: April 13, 2010, 04:13:18 AM »
Howdy guys!  I've just released a full version of my Ninja Turtles mod, and although it is a pretty complete story, there is a lot more I'd really love to do.  However, I can't do it without YOUR help!  Help me out with this, and help me create the first good Ninja Turtles game since Turtles in Time!

Character Wishlist:

Very Useful and Quite Awesome
Metalhead: He would be a nice way to mix things up on the player, providing a different type of villain.  Being made of his eponymous metal would make him very tough, and it would allow me to force the players into thinking their way into defeating him.  Plus, he could pull double duty as a villain and an ally.
http://tmnt.wikia.com/wiki/Metalhead
http://popculturenetwork.com/article.php?story=20100104112651125
Casey Jones: I know, I know, we already have a really excellent skope and skin for him, but he is pretty limited in terms of animations, so I am hoping someone can work some skoping magic there, as I am having a hard time putting together a good herofile for him.  He could also use the ability to pull out a few different sports implements, but beggars can't be choosers!

No Longer Wishful Thinking
Any of the Dream Team: http://bentongrey.wordpress.com/2010/11/29/the-dream-team/
Including-
Ace Duck: This flying fowl would provide the Turtles team with some useful air support.  I'd really like to see him made since he was pretty much my favorite of the TMNT action figures.  He's got a great look, and a skope should be relatively easy.
http://turtlepedia.wikia.com/wiki/Ace_Duck_%281989_action_figure%29
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZeN8MVasEs

Usagi Yojimbo: He's a samurai rabbit, how can you not like that concept?  Usagi is a fan favorite, and I'd be remiss if I didn't try to get him made for the mod.  I think some type of skope of the Beyonder's Samurai mesh would be best.
http://tmnt.wikia.com/wiki/Miyamoto_Usagi
http://turtlepedia.wikia.com/wiki/Usagi_Yojimbo_%281989_action_figure%29
Wingnut and Screwloose: This unbalanced twosome were more of my favorite toys when I was a kid, and they would provide some really interesting characters, gameplay-wise.  Unfortuantely, this is pretty much a two-fer, as you can't really have one without the other.  Wingnut could, perhaps, be skoped from one of Tommy's meshes with bat-like wings.  Screwloose, on the other hand, could probably come from Gren's Beetle mesh, at least in part.
http://tmnt.wikia.com/wiki/Wingnut
http://www.comicvine.com/wingnut/4005-51349/
Mondo Gecko: This anthropomorphic, skateboarding lizard was one of my all-time favorite figures as a kid, and I'd really love the chance to see him realized in FF.  He was a fixture in the Mighty Mutanimals backup feature, and a hero in his own right with that team.  After some suggestions by other helpful fans, I think that he might work with a skope of Tommy's The Lizard mesh and the Silver Surfer.  Add in some hair and a baseball cap, and you're all set.

http://phraggle.deviantart.com/art/Mondo-Gecko-2-455151096
Ray Fillet: This fishy fellow is the Aquaman of the Ninja Turtles set, how could I NOT request him?  I'm not entirely sure how he would be skoped, but I'll throw him in here on the off chance that someone will have an interest in him.
http://tmnt.wikia.com/wiki/Man_Ray
http://www.coverbrowser.com/image/mighty-mutanimals/7-1.jpg
http://turtlepedia.wikia.com/wiki/Ray_Fillet_%281990_action_figure%29

The Mutanimals: These other mutants would be a lot of fun to include, rounding out the hero roster of the team, or perhaps even showing up in their own spin-off mini-campaign.  Either way, I'd definitely like to see them done, especially their Aquaman parody, Man-Ray.
http://tmnt.wikia.com/wiki/Mutanimals
Armaggon: An incredibly awesome villain, this mutant shark scared the dickens out of me as a kid and would be totally necessary if I wanted to mess with the Future Shark Trilogy.  I'm thinking that the Sharkman mesh would serve as a pretty good base for this, but I'm not sure where the extras could come from.

Party Wagon: http://turtlepedia.wikia.com/wiki/Turtle_Van
Wrestling Turtles: One of the most memorable arcs from the Archie comics had the Turtles kidnapped and brought to Stump Asteroid where they were forced to compete in an intergalactic wrestling competition.  The four heroes in a half shell were given new costumes that were very distinctive, and if I wasn't limited by resources (I know, it's becoming an old tune by now), I think it would be a blast to throw in a few missions where you have to use these wrestling Turtles, with a whole new powerset.
http://www.comicvine.com/intergalactic-wrestling-federation/65-53174/
http://turtlepedia.wikia.com/wiki/Intergalactic_Wrestling

Most Important
Turtle Blimp: I think this may actually be possible!  I recently came across a mesh called "Gotham Police Blimp" which is about 90% of the way to being the Turtle Blimp already, it just needs the glider skoped onto it.  I would REALLY love to get my hands on this particular vehicle in order to punch up the one of my upcoming missions that will have a giant Krang terrorizing the city.

http://forums.thetechnodrome.com/showpost.php?p=719329&postcount=2945

Rock Soldiers: These craggy servants of Krang would make for some good fodder.  In fact, I would really like to have them to add variety to the minion types faced in the mod.  I'd really love to get these guys to use in the final mission of the current story arc, so, one of the missions that will be up next.  They have been skoped by all-around nice guy Cyber Burn, and now they just need a skin!  The skin wouldn't need to be terribly complex either.

http://forums.thetechnodrome.com/showpost.php?p=806631&postcount=3352

Rat King: Some other villains would be a great way to spice up a campaign, and Ratie here would be a fairly easy skin/skope...though his rat minions might prove more troublesome....Either way, he's just about a necessity.  There are tons of stories that could involve him, and he'd offer a really fantastic change of pace in terms of villains and themes.  Really, any male_basic style mesh would work for him, and the only animations that are really important would be a grenade throwing one.  He could use a bandolier skope, and the rags across his face could be skoped or skinned.  Weapons like his crossbow might be a nice touch, but I'd say they are far from important.

Leatherhead: A mutated Cajun alligator, this character has been both hero and villain, but I really would love to have him to provide another foe to test the Turtles.  He's a fan favorite, and he's certainly always been one of mine as well.  He might be able to be skoped, in part, from Tommy's The Lizard mesh.

Punk Frogs: I would really, REALLY love to see these guys made.  Not only do I have a soft spot in my heart for these southern amphibians, but they would really offer some nice options to the Turtles' roster as well.  They are a bit of a challenge, seeing as they are fairly distinctive from the usual humanoid shape of FF meshes, but fortunately, the difference between the individual frogs, other than their armament, is mostly cosmetic.  I think that Taskmaster might make a solid base for their skopes.

I've got a Shredder by Wingzero/Zero Master. It looks pretty good, and seems to use Male Basic KF. It's probably at one of Zeromaster's groups.

Yep, that's the only existant Shredder, but several skinners have requested a version with easier mapping.

Well, why not throw him in? And everything else too. If theres one franchise that advocates kitchen-sinking, its TMNT. Super Android JFK, Jedi Lincoln, wise cracking Cthulhu....Id see no real problem with any of those guys being in there.

I'd have no problem including Karai if she were made, although, story-wise, it would be a long time before I got to her.  Still, I could always build her in and have the character available to those who wanted to go up against her.

Ba-bump!  I've got a skinner lined up for April, but she needs a skope.  Let me know if you're interested! 

So, that brings us to Bebop and Rocksteady.  We've already got a skope set for Rocksteady, as I mentioned, but he needs a skin.  Bebop needs skoping and skinning.  Come on guys, don't leave the Turtles hanging! :D

:EDIT: Also, what mesh would y'all say would be a good base for April?

Okay...we've got skopes in the works for several characters, but we still need skins for Rocksteady and Bebop.  After them, the biggest priorities, story wise, will be Splinter and Krang.  Splinter I won't need for the next mission, but after that he'd be really handy.  Krang I won't need for two or three missions.

I'm far form a Turtles expert, but I believe Ink's Marvel Girl (Rachel, not Jean) has the right hair and build for April.

Well, with episode II released and Daglob having graciously volunteered to skin Bebop and Rocksteady, I'm down to just one request that I really NEED, and only two that I would need to finish an entire story arc.  The first is Splinter, and without this radical rat, I really can't do mission 3 or the next several.  The second is Krang, who Style has already put together a fantastic skope for.  I need a skope and skin for Splinter, but only a skin for Krang.  Come on guys, help me out!

Get Style to send me Krang, and I'll take a shot at him. However, for some reason my time is being consumed by outside forces (my family). I had hoped to get either Bebop or Rock Steady done today, but...

Will do!  I think you're style will lend itself well to Krang, Daglob.  He's got sorta' a movie monster feel, and you handle that kind of thing quite well.  No worries, I'm busy myself, so we'll get this stuff done when we can. :)

Also, if anyone is interested in doing a Splinter, here is a reference to the kind of gear he'd need:
http://www.ninjaturtles.com/toys/1988/splinter.htm
I'm thinking a bow would be a good way to differentiate him from his students in game.

My friends, we have a Splinter!  Failed Hero very graciously volunteered to skope this "radical rat" for us, and now all he needs is a skin to match the awesomeness of the skope.  Come on skinners, help me make FF history with a full Turtles mod!  You can see the skope right here:


Splinter's ready to kick some Foot backside, but he needs your help!
