Fly-Bonds are Forever by erikson1 Fly-Bonds are Forever by erikson1

He's the mutant fly who just won't die! Baxter Stockman escapes dimensional limbo and returns to Earth in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' "Fly-Bonds Are Forever." Seeking revenge on Shredder, Krang, and the Turtles, Baxter aims to eliminate his sworn enemies once and for all! But his vengeance won't come easy. Krang and Shredder have tunneled the Technodrome underneath Las Vegas in their latest plot for world domination: powering a giant electromagnetic pulse cannon by draining all the electricity from the city! When Donatello's gadgets start reading strange seismic activity underneath the Nevada desert, the Turtles know it can only be the Technodrome, and swiftly head to Vegas to stop it. April O'Neil reluctantly makes a deal with Burne Thompson in order to follow the Turtles and chase the story in Vegas. She agrees to take Burne's bimbo girlfriend Tiffany along to help her get an audition as a Vegas showgirl! But things go terribly wrong when they are kidnapped by Baxter and subjected to his most devious invention yet: the super-strength, unbreakable ropes he calls "fly-bonds!" The cunning fly takes the bound and gagged beauties to an underground cavern housing the Technodrome to lure the Turtles into a 3-way battle royale to the death!Can the Turtles save the lovely ladies and Las Vegas all in one night? Will Shredder and Krang finally reign supreme? Or will a pesky fly have the last laugh? Find out in the action-packed conclusion to the Turtles' thrilling motion picture extravaganza, "Fly-Bonds are Forever!"

You would think, after all these years, that April would learn to stay out of trouble.

Great to see you finally posted this erikson1! :) You did a tremendous job bringing my vision to life. You made April and Tiffany look super-sexy, :love: and Baxter the coolest anti-hero/hero fly-spy in the Turtleverse. B-) (Cool) Thanks once again for delivering such an awesome piece of work!

For those wondering, this pic will be the first in a series of James Bond movie spoof poster commissions for erikson1 I have planned starring Baxter Stockman taking the place of Bond and April replacing various Bond girls. The original "Diamonds are Forever" poster (www.cinemasterpieces.com/82011…) was merely the first one in the series that I altered in my head to become "Fly-Bonds are Forever." :lol: I don't know how many people remember Tiffany (she was Burne Thompson's bimbo girlfriend in a few early season episodes) from the original cartoon, but since I needed to replace the blonde in the original poster with a Turtles character, she made a perfect substitute! And April was just too easy to sub-in for that redhead on the original poster. That was a no-brainer, as was keeping their original outfit colors and just converting them to bikinis and boots. ;)

I must say that erikson1 did a fantastic job translating my wacky concept into actual art. From Baxter to the girls to all the text and the overall poster layout, he really nailed this and created a masterpiece! He also contributed a few suggestions which improved the "Turtleization" of the final pic, such as converting the satellite dish into the Turtle Blimp, changing the ocean platform into the Technodrome, and converting the helicopters into the foot soldiers in those mini-copters that they used in the arcade/SNES classic game "TMNT IV: Turtles in Time." Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles  

In addition to the plot synopsis I wrote for this "film" which erikson1 already posted, I'd like to share one other thing with you all. I'm sure you know the famous song sung by Shirley Bassey from "Diamonds Are Forever"? www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPeSPB… Well, as I was planning out this poster I was listening to that song and I got the idea to change the lyrics. Here are the original lyrics: lyrics.wikia.com/Shirley_Basse… So for fun I re-wrote the song and changed the title to match the name of this fake film. Here is my new version of the song, which I hope you'll find rather amusing. :laughing:

"Fly-Bonds Are Forever"

(as sung, er, “mumbled” by April O’Neil) ;)

 

Fly-bonds are forever

They immobilize and squeeze me

I just hope a Turtle frees me

I can struggle all night

but I know that they won’t slip off me

 

Fly-bonds are forever

Make one loose and try to stress it

Push it, strain it, and duress it

My plan’s falling apart

there’s no way I can get them off me

 

I can’t find love

Why must men do this to me?

Even fly-men subdue me

But when he’s gone

his ropes stay on!!!

 

Fly-bonds are forever

Tied around my little fingers

Unlike mens’, the fly-bonds linger

Men are chauvinist pigs

who I refuse to be a slave for!!!

 

I can’t find love

Why must men do this to me?

Even fly-men subdue me

But when he’s gone

his ropes stay on!!!

 

Fly-bonds are forever, forever, forever

Fly-bonds are forever, forever, forever

Forever, and ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BAXTER STOCKMAN WILL RETURN IN LIVE AND LET FLY :housefly: animated B-) (Cool)

Oh yes, I love how this ended up. :love: It's a perfect start to this "Baxter-as-Bond/April-in-BONDdage" series. :laughing:

Sorry for the delay on getting you the plans for "Live and Let Fly." I've been very busy of late and I have another DiD project concurrently going on with letiprincess too that's required some of my time. But rest assured the plans for it are all done and in my head. ;) I'll get it written down and sent to you as soon as I can. Hopefully next week if I can squeeze it in. 

Oh, and I am sorry to hear that your mom fell ill. I guessed I hadn't checked your page in awhile and I somehow missed that. If she's doing better now, that's good to hear though. :)
