    Typical! Shits-a-blowin’-up and the dino-people are having a threesome. Hey I know amplexus when I see it.

    A Gorn production of The Mikado always has top notch production values.

    The nice thing about a Gorn party, even on a slave planet, is that there’ll always be a conga line…

    How is the Golden Boy up there firing that gun? With his teeth?

  6. Tracy Says:

    The giant eye on that port-a-potty thing is a nice touch.

    Artist’s strategy: Throw shit at the canvas! All colors must go!

    Guy with the gun is clearly Barry Bostwick in “Megaforce”. He’s shooting at the deadly Red-Orange Swipe of Doom.

    @Ryan: have you SEEN Bostwick’s teeth?

    @Tracy: Maybe it’s a one-way window where you can watch the battle after it’s scared the shit out of you.

    It’s a hot mess for the cover alone – and I’d buy it!

    @fred: If GSS is time well wasted, YouTube is a close second:

    @Ryan, GSS ex-Noob: the one tme ‘Megaforce’ was on BBC1 I spent most of the time thinking Ace Hunter was actually Barry Gibb. That would explain why he’s shooting the laser-rifle like a bazooka, on hs shoulder, because the recoil would damage his pearly-whtes.

    I fact the gun would be… going back to mass o’ chew-set.

    (Don’t blame me, it was Kenny Everett’s gag first).

    Is it just me, or do the croco-ducks seem rather entertained by the goings on?

    Edit: perhaps it’s a theme park and they’re here for the four o’clock show. The guy with a ray gun is holding it oddly because he’s not actually holding it: he’s an animatronic with built in light show.
