Hi Ho Hyperdrive: Diversion Tactics by chill13 Hi Ho Hyperdrive: Diversion Tactics by chill13
Rover is a fast talker and a quick thinker and he can come up with a plan on the spot.  The problem is he may think of them but he doesn't always think them through.

Man, I have been working on this thing for MONTHS!

(Rover and Flyspur belong to me)

He's always got something up his sleeve! Doesn't always work. But he'll give anything a shot. He's also not much for thinking ahead. Usually just executes whatever pops into his head. Kind of a "ready, fire, aim" mentality.

I've began to notice that! :laughing: He sure takes his examples from those trigger-happy ol' cowboys~ I bet he'd love to marathon some John Wayne films!

He really does!

Oh, he's had many of them! ;)
Although he's more into Gene Autry and Roy Rogers. ;)

"Can you reach my hat?"
"No."

I just had an idea while looking at the last panel: Technically, he could slip his feet out of his boots and give the guy next to him a nice, hard kick. XD

LoL! It would probably work for a moment. But can you imagine what would happen next if he didn't have his hands out?! There would be some serious yoga there with his feet on the ground and the rest of him still strapped upside down on the wall! :D

True. The only species that type of trick will NEVER EVER work on is an Andalite. Those stalk eyes only have one blind spot, and its right between the stalks.

Yeah, they are in a bit of a fix.  If Rover can manage to get his arm open with that thing still around his hand they should be out pretty quick.  

Heh, he can be a pretty fast talker when he sets his mind to it.

artsytarts Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2014  Student General Artist
If he managed to re-set to another attachment he should get out, right? If manages to get out a small one, that is. XD

Well, as a trader he needs a fast mouth XD

Awesome art, as usual; their expressions and detail is astonishing! Your truly an inspiration, my friend.

Oh, good!  :D  No fun if someone can guess the punchline.  

Heh, yeah.  Flyspur would probably have vetoed that plan if he had known exactly what Rover was about to do.
Thank you so much!!  Expressions are my favorite thing to draw!  Aww.  You're way too nice!

Yea, its great when things are unexpected; both for the artist, and the reader.

XD I can imagine Rover coming up with something else equally silly that ended up with the same results...

Your very much welcome; the expressions in your artwork really are wonderful. I always have trouble drawing expressions and i often look up to people like you who can draw so flawlessly!

Rover probably knows how to pick the locks or something. I'm sure he's got an attachment in that arm of his for this type of situation. Then again, don't Flyspur's bones bend a lot? He might be able to slip out.
Reply
:iconchill13:
chill13 Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes on both counts!  :D  While Rover doesn't actually think ahead, with that arm he always seems to be prepared.  And yes, Flyspur could slip out of those with very little problem.  As soon as that guard leaves........if he leaves, they're out of there!

I have a feeling Flyspur will be out long before Rover. Seems like Rover may also land on his head when he escapes.
I think with my cyborg, a knife in the wrist would be about the only attachment, other than the claws with a paralyzing agent in them. (The doctor had claws so he thinks it's only logical that any cybernetics should have claws that can inject the paralysis serum, even if said cyborg doesn't naturally have claws.)

chill13 Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
You're probably right.  Flyspur is pretty flexible and clever, while it might take a bit for Rover to get to the right attachment.

LOL!  That's awesome.

It is a lot of fun. I think my crew might be a bit more militant than yours. (If they met, they'd probably still get along.)

chill13 Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Ha!  If they are militant at all they'd be more militant than Rover's crew.  While Rover will certainly stick up for someone who was down their general response to armed conflict is to run...except perhaps Nana who would start biting.  They are little more than a traveling pawn shop.
