What I Found
 
Based upon what I looked up, it's between 3.5 and 4 inches. I think that's just about right for Scape purposes. Video time.

One.
Two.
Three.

~Dysole, hoping that's helpful

Scape figures are closer to 1.5 inches I think. 4 inches would be like Huge 16

Phineas and Pherb are on Netflix so I'm watching that
Each 30 minutes episodes are actually two 15 minute episodes.
The quick short story aspect could be displayed in our custom
Before talking mechanics
Brainstorm
Make long lists of anything that comes to mind about the character

From what I've seen, he makes potentially tragic 20-sided die rolls that can be disrupted by heroes, further disrupted by agent heros. If the roll fails, it actually helps the opponent

Edit: Peripheral cards are not needed for this guy. He's not like a toy maker or a "find the bomb" kind of guy
Yes he uses devices and those devices are disabled, but the devices aren't hunted down they are more figurative

How about this for a possible mini?

It's Hank Pym from the Chaos War heroclix set. It seems to be one of the only affordable scientist looking minis out there, and I think with a repaint it could look pretty good. Of course you would lose the cartoony aspect of the character.

It's not like that's never happened.

I'll keep looking for suitable minis but that can work if nothing else.

~Dysole, who has a couple ideas based on a similar concept off of what Confred was saying

Funny we used that same mini for Percy Jackson

So should I paint the percy figure or leave him in a lab coat?:p

Re: Heroes of Fiction: Design Thread
 
I have my idea for this figure after a morning of watching and some gym time reflection

Utgar summons the Doctor to enact some chaos
Power does something big and bad, d20 roll
If opponent Hero is adjacent subtract from roll
Perhaps give opponent chance to get adjacent, like how he lets Agent P escape all the time
If success badness happens, perhaps with collateral damage
If fail, goodness happens to opponent and Doof moves away for free (reduces his vulnerability and it always happens in the show, like he gets launched over the tree line)

You know I completely forgot about that :duh::lol:

I'm thinking a fairly cheap figure that has a one shot big power that has a sizable but limited range.

TRI-AREA DOOMINATOR
Choose a space. All figures within 3 spaces of the chosen space are affected. Dr. Doof must be one of the affected figures.

EXPECTED ENGAGEMENT 7
If an opponent's figure ends it's move adjacent to DrDoof, roll the 20-sided die. If you roll a7 or higher, the ends

quick mock up of what I was thinking.

Edit: I keep thinking of adjustments here and there on this draft, but I've deleted the comments and will let this version have time to create thoughts.

Re: Heroes of Fiction: Design Thread
 
I was talking to a guy at work about this character, he is a big fan and gave me this idea that I like.
Basically the Dr. puts a self destruct button on friendly robot heroes with a 20 sided die roll. Small chance low number blows them up. Then if they are in clear sight of him, he explodes them like DW7000. He might start with a couple of markers on his card. That way he can turn his robot army into walking timebombs. (I know he's supposed to be evil, but all of Utgars minions look like they would eat this guy up.):)

Thoughts
 
TREX's latest is very similar to what direction I was considering going. A little bit of shoring up from an idea that involved making a bunch of Inators, adding in a few of the ideas peppered in here, and I have something like this.

Quote:

INATOR INVENTOR
After taking a turn with Dr. Doofenshmirtz, you may place an Inator marker on a Soulborg Unique Hero you control. While a figure has an Inator marker on its Army Card, that figure adds 2 to its Attack Value and 1 to its Defense Value. If you do not place an Inator marker, you may roll the 20 sided die. On a roll of 11 or higher, you may place a previously destroyed soulborg adjacent to Dr. Doofenshmirtz

BACKFIRE (or SELF DESTRUCT BUTTON)
After revealing an order marker on this card or a card with an Inator marker, you must roll the 20 sided die adding 6 to your roll if an Agent Unique Hero is adjacent to Dr. Doofenshmirtz. On a roll of 1-2 Dr. Doofenshmirtz may not move, attack, or use any special ability on any army card and you must destroy a figure you control with the Inator marker and place 2 wound markers on all figures adjacent to that card and place a wound marker on this Army Card. If there are no figures with the Inator Marker on their card in play, place 3 wound markers on this card.

CARTOON INJURIES
At the end of the round, you may remove up to 2 wound markers from this card.
I'll admit I certainly like the concept of having an Inator Special Attack and would not be opposed to that route if we determine the soulborg direction is unfeasible.

~Dysole, figuring that once the powers are nailed down, we can fix up the wording
