Beyond Thunderdome Minute 97 - The way things are wont to go

BeyondThunderdome-Banner097.jpg

Max guns the engine and speeds ahead of the Airtruk, moving into position between it, and Aunty’s forces. She is unfazed by this development and as if sensing a challenge, Ironbar speeds ahead of the line, straight towards Max. But Max isn’t playing chicken today, and climbs out of the driver’s seat, leaping from the vehicle at the last moment, and sending his camel truck headlong into Ironbar. The plane leaves the ground and takes flight over the remaining vehicles.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 96 - There's not enough runway

BeyondThunderdome-Banner096.jpg

Noticing that Jedediah has cut the engine, Max climbs up the wing to ask him what’s going on. Jedediah is certain that there’s not enough runway between them and the might of Bartertown, but Max assures him that there will be. As Jedediah starts up the plane once more, Max reclaims his camel truck and the two begin rolling back the way they came. As they accelerate, Max maneuvers his vehicle alongside the plane and shares one last look with the people inside.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 95 - Cliffhanger

BeyondThunderdome-Banner095.jpg

As junk scatters across the runway, Aunty and her fleet thunder past Jedediah’s grotto, hot on the heels of the plane. Aunty is out in front, leading the charge, but another vehicle, driven by Ironbar, quickly comes from behind to lead the attack. However, the plane has come to the edge of a cliff, and without the necessary speed needed for flight, Jedediah is forced to stop and turn the plane around., which is fortunate for Scrooloose, who rejoins the party.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 94 - Ready for take off

BeyondThunderdome-Banner094.jpg

With the plane spinning up outside, Max insists that Jedediah’s plane is the one thing that may save his life that day. He understands well enough what Max is getting at, and soon He and the others run out of the dugout and board the plane as Jedediah Jr. begins to taxi away. They make it to the runway, but Jedediah tells Max that they’re overloaded, they won’t get off the ground. Undeterred, Max releases the cargo nets and drops Jedediah’s junk on the runway.

BeyondThunderdome-Banner093.jpg

Jedediah Jr. heads underground to escape his pursuers, ducking into a series of underground tunnels, but Max and the others are close behind. The boy finds his father lounging on a bed, reading a magazine, and tries to get him to leave in their plane, but he is ignored and as Jedediah Jr. runs off, Jedediah is soon joined by some visitors to his grotto. One of the visitors in particular seems to know Jedediah quite well, and begins to insist that today is his lucky day.

BeyondThunderdome-Banner092.jpg

Finally free of pursuers, Max has made his way to the front of the train and found Pig Killer impaled by Ironbar’s harpoon. Max makes quick work of the harpoon, pulling it from Pig Killer’s leg, but Savannah catches sight of an obstruction in the distance that forces him to slam on the brakes. As the train comes to a halt, Max and the others find themselves being held up by Jedediah Jr., but Aunty’s vehicles are close behind, sending everyone on the run once more.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 91 - A bridge too far

BeyondThunderdome-Banner091.jpg

It’s a desperate tug-of-war between Ironbar and the Children as both hold tight to Master. Max capitalizes on the opportunity and delivers a mighty kick to Ironbar’s face, sending him careening on a pipe out into open air. Dangling and helpless to rescue himself, Ironbar calls for backup, but the sudden appearance of a bridge leaves him up in the air. Ironbar fights to stay on the pipe, hurdling obstacles as they come, but ultimately Mr. Skyfish puts an end to him.

BeyondThunderdome-Banner090.jpg

With the cabin no longer a safe place, Savannah begins helping the smaller children move onto the Generator Train’s engine, but Aunty is clever and shouts for Blackfinger to disconnect the caboose from the engine. Savannah hears the order and quickly grabs Master, causing Aunty to rescind her order. As Blackfinger holds the train together, Aunty pulls Master away from Savannah, a victory that is short lived as Max snatches Master and they jump to safety.

BeyondThunderdome-Banner089.jpg

Scorched, soot-covered, and screaming, Ironbar clings to the front of the generator train having inexplicably survived a horrific explosion. Nearby, Max finds himself the target of a Bartertown vehicle intent on doing to him what He just did to Ironbar, but Max is a skilled driver and avoids the train. Up in the cabin, Master and the children are attacked by more guards, led personally by Aunty, but luckily for them, Savannah is nearby and ushers them outside.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 88 - Warning! Highly Flammable!

BeyondThunderdome-Banner088.jpg

Abandoning his hand-powered rail car, Ironbar leaps onto a vehicle equipped with a harpoon gun and quickly puts it to good use against Pig killer. Before He can get off another shot, Max is there to use his cowhide car to push Ironbar’s buggy in front of the generator train. The small buggy is no match for the speed of the train and though Ironbar tries to leap to safety, he quickly finds himself engulfed in a massive fireball as the buggy is completely demolished.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 87 - Scrooloose on the loose

BeyondThunderdome-Banner087.jpg

As Max settles in behind the wheel of the cowhide car, Scrooloose makes his way to the front of Max’s old camel-drawn wagon and disables the driver with a mighty swing of his frying pan. The wagon veers in front of the generator train and sideswipes another vehicle which rouses the concussed guard. A second swing of the frying pan puts an end to him, and soon Scrooloose finds himself in, what could be considered, control of the vehicle as it speeds along.

BeyondThunderdome-Banner086.jpg

While Anna and Skyfish learn conversational French, Eddie is at the back window using Master’s pair of binoculars to survey the landscape. Things seem quiet until, without warning the Bartertown guards are upon them, smashing windows and grabbing for Master. Max is quick to engage the guards but is quickly pulled from the train only to find himself being dragged behind a car covered in cowhides. Not to be outdone, Scrooloose also leaps from the train.

Many interesting trinkets can be found in Master’s cabin on the Generator Train, but one above all stands out to Anna Goanna and Mr. Skyfish; the old turntable. Anna is quick to call attention to it and Mr. Skyfish takes Gekko’s sonic and places it on the machine. After inspecting the relic and finding it just as quiet as before, Max steps in and reveals the true nature of the vinyl disc that they’ve carried with them ever since the day the Skyraft was attacked by Turbulents.

BeyondThunderdome-Banner084.jpg

Clear of Bartertown, Max, Master, Pig killer and the kids seem to be in the clear. With Underworld fading further and further into the distance Max takes a moment to ask Pig killer what their next move is going to be, a question for which there is no answer. Meanwhile, in the cabin at the back of the train, Master is attempting to pack several keepsakes into a bag. This task is thwarted by the children, who are intent on exploring this cabinet of curiosities.

BeyondThunderdome-Banner083.jpg

The terrified wastelanders press towards the exits, but Bartertown’s guards keep them in place as Aunty steps out onto a platform to address the people massing below.  She raises her hands to quiet them, and though explosions continue to erupt around her, Aunty is calm and determined, instructing those gathered to chase after Master and those that took Him from them. The crowd cheers and moments later Aunty leads a rolling armada out into the wasteland.

BeyondThunderdome-Banner082.jpg

As the Generator Train breaks free of the pipes and wires that hold it in place, Bartertown has descended into complete disarray. The guards struggle to maintain order but the near constant explosions erupting up from Underworld are making the job quite troublesome. The Collector and Dr. Dealgood quickly find themselves shoved aside as the traders that had come to Bartertown flee with their goods. Meanwhile, in a large vat of pig feces, a figure emerges.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 81 - Hang on!

BeyondThunderdome-Banner081.jpg

With Ironbar dealt with, Max, Savannah, and Scrooloose scramble to board the generator train as Pig killer guns the engine. The old generator train roars as it strains against the cables and ducts that hold it in place, but slowly, the connections begin to give way. Topside, Aunty descends from her penthouse as flames erupt from the ground. Sparks leap and smoke billows from ruptured pipes as the generator train laboriously begins to roll forward along its tracks.

Beyond Thunderdome Minute 80 - All aboard!

BeyondThunderdome-Banner080.jpg

Max and Savannah bar the door holding back Aunty’s guards, but their victory is short-lived as the guards begin cutting their way through with a chainsaw. Max and Savannah return to the main chamber where Pig killer and Master are prepared to depart, enthusiastically blowing the train’s horn, but they’re not in the clear just yet. All of the commotions have caught Aunty’s attention through her periscope and it seems that the feed chute didn’t completely disable Ironbar.

BeyondThunderdome-Banner079.jpg

Max and Pig killer’s reunion is cut short by the dulcet tones of Blackfinger singing a jaunty tune at the beginning of his day, but He quickly discovers that things are not as they should be in Underworld and high tails it out of there, with Max following close behind. Max is able to keep pace with the mechanic, following him through a set of heavy doors, but after rounding a corner He finds that Blackfinger is no longer alone, and the roles have reversed.

Ironbar fails to catch Max and the kids in the air vent, but as he returns to the ground He finds that someone has knocked out one of his guards, and spinning around He sees Pig killer standing with Master and Eddie on the generator truck. Pig killer is able to delay Ironbar just long enough for Master to pull a lever and drop a feed chute on Ironbar, knocking him out and bringing Max and the kids sliding down into Underworld from their hiding spot above.
