yeah ROOPs is definently that propellor thing, i'm looking at it right now, in PAUSE , ZOOM. CHARLIE's got the same one.


MARCH HARE, both have those badges too.


Both MAX and GOOSE have the gun crosshairs. and their badges are blue, not silver, and the MFP is written over the top, not underneath.


FIFI also has the same one as MAX and GOOSE , cept he also has the NUMBER 1 badge.


I'd say the badge colours and designs are rank. i'm gonna post up some screen grabs later on tonight of each characters badges, just to do it.

Given the background of the MFP as lawmen, you can guarantee the badges were meant to signify some type of qualification. It seems so obvious i must be wrong, but wouldn't the crosshairs signify a marksman ? as Roop is doing right at the start. The small circular badge may signify a Driving level ( Advanced, Pursuit ?? etc) hard to say really, You would think these would be described in the script possibly ? Fifi would definitely have more/different badges due to his rank.

Right, i'd always noticed a few of the MAIN FORCE PATROL had different badges. But only tonight while watching and pausing every badge i saw, did i notice some wierd differences.


For starters, i noticed that the MARCH HARE cops have got their 'propellor badges on their chests, not arms.


And ROOP is the only one with just one 'propellor' badge, i noticed tonight CHARLIE has got the 'elite' blue crosshair badge and the 'propellor' one.


I also noticed MAX has only got the crosshair one. Does this make CHARLIE a higher rank and more of an elite copper?

ROOP with the only 'propellor' badge, probably the best shot of the badge in the whole movie.


Image


CHARLIE's badge's i only just noticed tonight.


Image


And finally FIFI's 'blue crosshairs', and his NUMBER 1.


Image


And MAX's only badge (what a loser).


Image


keep in mind, as you can see, these are photographed off the actual tv screen, so quality isn't the best. But sh*t, i love it when you guys do this , so now its my turn...

yeah man, first you upload your pics to a server, then you jump on the FORUM. write your comment, then press ENTER a couple of times, make sure when you've done that you also go up one (or you won't have room for another comment underneath it), then you click on that little green TREE next to the smiley face, and type in your URL, and your pic should pop up. I probably shoulda cropped mine a bit, too big.

too late tonite to post jack - will send them tomorra on the Goose Z1000 thread, I have a great photo of Toecutter at the Stone 25th Anniversary run from '98, he has, ahem, added a few kilo's to that washboard belly !!! of course at this gig he was celebrating his role as Toadie in 'Stone', not the nomad biker trash that we know and love so dearly Image from MM.
