Turbo Kid

I've never watched ABC's of Death and I didn't care for Hobo With A Shotgun, but Turbo Kid is a wonderfully charming post-apocalyptic film. The movie is about an orphaned teen who must battle and evil warlord (played by Michael Ironside) to save his new friend (who may be more than she seems). Along the way he discovers the armor of his comic book hero, Turbo Rider). It's one of my favourite movies from 2015 and is currently available on Netflix (at least it is in the States). Check out the trailer:

I've decided to stat out a few of the items in the movie for Dungeon Crawl Classics/Mutant Crawl Classics. They're overpowered, but that doesn't bother me.

Turbo Rider Armor
This is the armor of the famed robot fighter, Turbo Rider. It provides protection as hide armor and the power glove that accompanies it allows the bearer to fire powerful blasts. The glove can either fire a blast that does 4d6 force damage and has a range of 40'. The wielder can also do a power punch that does the same damage. Anything killed by these attacks is blown apart in a bloody mess. Each of these attacks drains one charge from the gauntlet. The gauntlet has 6 charges that are regained at the start of every day.

Gnome Stick
The Gnome Stick can only be wielded by an innocent or one that is pure of heart. The bearer gains the benefits of the halfling's good luck charm ability. It's is also a club that grants it's wielder +1 to hit and +1 damage.

If you've seen the film you should watch this extended music video/prequel that shows what Apple was doing right before the movie.
