@  Xellos : (22 September 2016 - 05:25 PM)

Neon Tiger's stage music from Mega Man X3 was also pretty much straight from Guns 'N Roses' "My Michelle". X5 also renamed all the Mavericks as references to GNR.

@  Dracula : (22 September 2016 - 02:26 PM)

the band name is Journey btw.

Shade Man's theme sounds like a mariachi song.

@  ShadowMan024 : (22 September 2016 - 02:13 PM)

Yeah. Lots of Mega Man songs are copied from bigger songs.

@  Bass X0 : (22 September 2016 - 12:50 PM)

Did Capcom copy Elec Man's stage theme from Journey by Faithfully?

bees are revolutionary force, wasps are mecernaries.

@  Rycochet : (21 September 2016 - 09:36 AM)

But wasps can survive stinging, it's why they're such b*****ds and will fly straight at you. Buzzy buzzy bees on the other hand...

@  Whirl Maximus : (21 September 2016 - 09:30 AM)

I was stung by a wasp yesterday and just got a letter from his family solicitor for manslaughter

@  ▲ndrusi : (21 September 2016 - 07:01 AM)

Ian saw that "see you turn into a Chris McFeely" post, didn't get the reference, and took it seriously.

@  Broadside : (21 September 2016 - 06:48 AM)

Action Man really ramped up the awful puns this issue. Maybe after McFeely died last issue, Ian took on his mantle?

@  Telly : (20 September 2016 - 05:29 PM)

These days, there's Craig's List. (use at your own risk)

@  Bass X0 : (20 September 2016 - 12:46 PM)

I just remembered that the Marvel UK Transformers comic printed the full address of kids wanting to trade with other fans. Surely that wouldn't be allowed today?

In my never-ending quest to expand the Classics ranks, I give you an oft-overlooked character: G1 Omnibot Security Agent Downshift.

This was a super easy kitbash to give us yet another updated G1 Autobot. He began life as Classics Cliffjumper which I disassembled and coated with Krylon Fusion white. The finishing touch was giving him Cybertron Bendy Prime's head which ironically makes a good stand-in for Downshift's G1 head. I'm quite pleased with the results. I'm letting the paint cure for at least another week before I touch him again.

Very nice work man..I like it.

I have to disagree Knight, I think the head works very well here.
Codename: Ginrai
Code No.: C-307
Level: 76
Origin: U.S.A.

Profile: A gentle intellectual, he is usually a quiet commander, but when the Destrons start attacking, he becomes a warrior whose bravery is second to none. Well versed in various martial arts, he is willing to lay down his life to defend against destruction and invasion.

Trust me....it's better to have a well defined collection over a vast one.

Not a bad idea, now it needs at least the arm detailing from the G1 toy, and I'd say maybe repaint the head to have more of a true black and silver look to match the rest of the black on the toy better. Personally, I'd do something to make the deco on the car more interesting too maybe, even if it's not G1 accurate. It just looks too simple for a deluxe.

Since Downshift is one of my favorie G1 toys, I love the update. Just need to put some sort of missiles down his "hoodie" backpack to complete the look!

Its a good start. but I have to agree that he is abit to simple and plain, escpailyl when lookign at the the offical classic characters. Bumblebee and Cliffjumper arent just plain yellow or red. neither is optimus. The seekers have redone markings, at least the mass release ones.

Nice mod. I like the idea and the use of the Bendy Prime head for Downshift, but I agree with Gargoyle, might wanna see about repainting the head, even if u were to just paint the little yellow area in the center, I'd say it would help a lot. Cool figure though, would like to see something like that in stores (rather that then as a Botcon exclusive we'd have to pay out the wazoo for icon-fire.gif).

If you wanna do something to differentiate him from Prime, build him a visor. It's really simple. The one I built for the Nightbeat custom in my avatar was made from the bubble on the very package he came in. A little glue, a little paint... voila.
