I was faced today with the fact that the current generation has no idea who Carmen Sandiego is (long story), and it got me thinking... what would collabs have looked like 10 years ago? 20 years ago? Even longer? What collabs would you have loved to see as a kid (and - admit it - you would probably still love to see now)? TMNT collab... fuck. yes. Donatello dark, Michelangelo green (because April = yellow), Leonardo blue, Raphael red. It fits so well, except for Michaelangelo, but w/e Smurf collab... hmm, no, sorry. Although as a blue player I suspect I'd like it anyway Gummi Bears collab... you're goddamn right. Disney Afternoon collab (Duck Tales, Darkwing Duck, Talespin, Chip 'n' Dale) - I WOULD KILL FOR THIS. Chip and Dale could be co-leads like Ryune/I&I, that sort of thing. And who doesn't want a Baloo card? Fucking terrorists and communists, that's who. Rainbow Brite collab... ehhhh maybe. Strawberry Shortcake collab... no. Sorry, just no. Well ok, MAYBE if you make them super-adorable, like a cross between the Hello Kitty collab and the Kapibara collab. MAYBE then. Street Figher collab... now that would be fucking awesome! You know you need Shoryuken and Hadoken active skills in your life. YOU KNOW YOU DO. Mortal Kombat collab... cool, but maybe not the right tone for PAD would be awesome though. There were certainly enough characters to go around, and I for one would absolutely love a blue attacker/devil (Hatsume-ish) Mileena or Katana card. Sub-Zero as well. Ermac for fire, Reptile for wood... ok I'm starting to really like this idea. Double Dragon collab... yesssssssss. YOU NEED AN ABOBO CARD IN YOUR RED DECK, DON'T LIE. YOU KNOW YOU DO. Mega Man collab. Just the thought of it broke my brain. So many boss monsters to choose from, so many Mega Man versions... I mean... it would just... I can't even. I can't! X-Men collab.... hey, that could still happen! (tbh a lot of these could still happen, thank you nostalgia revival of the 2010's) Basically this thread is here so we can all wax nostalgic and imagine what the collabs of our childhood would have been, and how absolutely fucking awesome they would have turned out.
