Gotta catch 'em all - Indie Wars

Three images, looking for any and all identities and references.

P1, pan 2 - identify the vehicles.

P2, pan 1 and 2 - who is attending the fleamarket, and identify anything interesting being bought, sold or showed off:

Concur with all the character identifications. Not 100% sure on the items, but I think so for the boxes, think probably right for the Gems, not sure the eggs would be from Jurassic Park as there's no time travel involved there.

Well the eggs are far from their native time period.

Fair point, and the fact that one is labeled T-Rex does tend to lean towards it being a Jurassic Park reference.

Re: Gotta catch 'em all - Indie Wars

On P2 pan 2, I think fifth from the left is Lightning Boy, later reworked into Lightning Lad (LSH).

Re: Gotta catch 'em all - Indie Wars

In the first image, a Time Bubble is largely associated with the Legion, though Rip Hunter has also used one.

On P2 pan 2, top left, probably an ape from Planet of the Apes.

Re: Gotta catch 'em all - Indie Wars

On P2 pan 2, between Doc Browne and Rick Sanchez is either Proty or Proty II (they look identical).

Re: Gotta catch 'em all - Indie Wars

While it's a back view so hard to tell, the image listed as Superman looks like a youthful body (in particular what little you can see of the face), so I'd say that's probably him during his Superboy days, when he time travelled a lot more.

Re: Gotta catch 'em all - Indie Wars

The guy in the picture to the left of the Time Bandits might be Zorro.

True, but in this case it is the one from Ninja High School. That one might well have been a nod to the DC one, as the series is full of such homages, but for the purpose of identifying them here it's the NHS one.

Agreed. But we can probably narrow it down to a specific one, as very few of the apes from that series time traveled.

Valid point - I suspect you are right, especially with some of the LSH present.

Maybe. If so, he's a weird inclusion, as Zorro has no connection to the Time Bandits or to any time travel stories I can think of.

OTOH I'm hard pressed to think of any time travel connection with Howard the Duck either. Dimension hopping for sure but I don't recall him time travelling. So it might just be that Zorro is from the past.

Yeah, but dimension hopping is at least in the right sort of direction. Strictly speaking Rick Sanchez doesn't do time travel either, but he's definitely present.

Re: Gotta catch 'em all - Indie Wars

24 hours with no guesses, so some clues (for the ones I know - obviously no clues for the ones I've also failed to place yet).

First image - no clue for the last unidentified vehicle.

Second image, panel 2:
The two men top left, one in a suit, one in a turtleneck, are from a live-action US TV show.
The bald man in the grayish jumpsuit is from a cartoon.
The man with the goggles on his head is originally from a series of 1930s novels; I'd say Pulps, but they were British. He's not normally associated with time travel, but his 1980s movie somewhat incongruously featured it.
The glowing guy is from Marvel. 
The blond guy to the right of the picture and the boy with him are both from a 1980s TV series.
The Time Bandits are holding something interesting.
So is Sherman.

Last page - Ichi's sword is an identifiable item.
The guy in the tie in panel 1 and the cowboy in panel 2 both come from the same movie - it's not usually associated with time travel, but is with something related.
The giant with the top knot and reading the map is surprisingly calm for someone who is normally encountered fighting to the death.

Re: Gotta catch 'em all - Indie Wars

For the duo I'll go with Tony Newman and Doug Phillips from Time Tunnel; never watched the show but the images seem to match a stock photo I found.

Slight correction from above: as noted in my original post, Garth Ranzz should be listed as Lightning Boy, not Lightning Lad. The tip-off is the costume's colours. He only wore the costume with red in it as Lightning Boy. Most his Lightning Lad costumes have been some variation of blue, yellow, and white, though his Silver Age costume had orange leggings and belt buckle.
