Love the setup, too!
I am really enjoying this comic. I've always liked Monty Python references and reenactments.
nice monty phython homage
Given how often Monty Python references show up in the funnies, I decided to try my hand at it as well. I have yet to see a homage to the Dead Parrot Sketch here and I thought Soundwave and Swindle would be perfect for it.
The box is for MusicLabel Frenzy and Rumble Earphones: it was simply the perfect size. And with a name like "Swindle" he's certainly perfect for the role isn't he?
Oh irony of ironies. Universe Bruticus Maximus arrived in the mail today: the day after I posted chapter 5 featuring Swindle.
Funny how things like that work out.
Anyway, to commemorate these funnies exceeding one thousand views, as well as myself posting on TFW2005 over 700 times, here's chapter 6. Also known as 'shamelessly ripped from Lil'Formers'.
Chapter 6 - Red vs. Blue
For the record, I myself am Blue Frenzy, Red Rumble and that's how it will ultimately be reflected in this webcomic. For those who disagree, well... well there are still plenty of other things to enjoy about this comic so please don't stop reading.
Hey there buddy. I was feeling quite crummy today and I read your last 2 strips, really made my day, puts a smile back on my face, thanks!
personally, due to have watched the cartoon for more then half my life before reading any of the comics, I saw it as Rumble being the purple one, but when it comes to the comic contuinty I accept the whole Frezny is the blue one,
Still a great comic anyway
... I just call them both Rumble, personally.
even they don't know?
is thundercracker a custom or the real deal?
haha that's wicked. I always got those 2 messed up. And yes where did you find Thundercracker I've seen him in a few web comics and can't seem to find him any where.
Ah, another strip featuring Thundercracker! This gets better and better.
His Thundercracker looks like the $150 Botcon version, but there's also a $65 version from the Henkei line.
Just read through this, and it's well funny!
Don't play it down the middle, tell us which is which!
You know, Rumble's original toy is red. The old cartoon made him blue. With all the animation errors that crept into the show, I'm surprised anyone would accept it as the authority above the actual toyline. Tsk tsk.
Glad I could be of some help.
It has been firmly acknowledged that calling Rumble purple never solves anything.
Yup, it's the real deal Botcon 2007 Thundercracker. I got it off of ebay along with Dirge and Thrust way back in late 2007 when they were a bit more readily available and thus somewhat cheaper.
Glad you enjoyed them.
Shane Anderson read my comic... I'M NOT WORTHY! I'M NOT WORTHY!
Like I said at the end of the last strip, this comic is going to be red Rumble, blue Frenzy. I grew up in Japan where in the cartoon translation, they switched the names around the so that the blue (actually purple) one that was featured a lot more was Frenzy and the less seen red one was Rumble. When I first saw the English version and found out about the argument my reaction was 'WTF?'. This is really just a one shot to make fun of the whole argument.
Every time I see Monty Python in a TF photocomic, it makes me laugh. Your version of the dead parrot sketch was brilliant.
Nice take on the Frenzy/Rumble debate too
OK, the next one-shot is really a three parter. Back when I was planning on shuffling the episodes around, chapter 7, 8, and 9 would've become chapters 5, 6, and 7. Of course, they're ultimately in the proper order so chapters 7, 8, and 9 are here as is. Warning, cliffhanger.
Chapter 7 - Holy Hand Grenade
