@  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.

@  Bass X0 : (22 September 2016 - 02:25 PM)

i never heard Journey before today (BBC R2 Ken Bruce Show) but recognised it immediately.

@  ShadowMan024 : (22 September 2016 - 02:15 PM)

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?

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 September 2016 - 11:33 AM)

Things that make you go "blergh".

@  ShadowMan024 : (22 September 2016 - 10:54 AM)

Robowang I'm glad I can always count on you to fulfill my quota of gross body information in the shoutbox

Carving off genital warts with an x-acto knife is more fun than I assumed. Thank goodness for Anbesol, though.

bees. my god.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 September 2016 - 11:03 AM)

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

@  Robowang : (21 September 2016 - 08:45 AM)

Don't care. Not my car.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 September 2016 - 08:41 AM)

Did you remember to put down a tarp first this time?

@  Robowang : (21 September 2016 - 08:38 AM)

There's a dead hooker in the trunk!

@  Broadside : (21 September 2016 - 07:03 AM)

There are worse mistakes to make!

@  ▲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)

been thinking of getting a soundbar. but what exactly do they do? are they like home theater systems but without satellite speakers?

@  MEDdMI : (20 September 2016 - 12:52 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?

People who purchase the Japanese Animated Encyclopedia (available next month) will be entitled to purchase an exclusive Animated Optimus Prime (Elite Guard Ver.) figure.

The 112 page encyclopedia will cost 1,680 yen and is available for order at Books Rakuten, Amazon JP and Red Mercury.

Each purchase of the book entitles the buyer to a maximum of 2 pieces of the exclusive figure.

Each figure will cost 4,900 yen. Orders of two figures will be sold at the slightly discounted price of 9,200 yen.

Based on the silhouette of the figure on the cover, it will be a repaint of the voyager class Prime figure with Wingblade parts.

This is much like Emergency Green G1 Ratchet, Skids & Screech, Gentei Ghost Starscream, and Gentei Electro Disruptor Ligier before him. They all had to have a book purchased in order to buy them.

Randy

Edit: EZ Collection Elite Guard Optimus (the maroon, dark gray, and gold one) to give us an impression of how he might look.

Wow, that's a surprisingly hefty figure compared to past precedent, if the silhouette is true.

I mean, I have no interest in that Elite Guard Prime deco or the Wingblade parts so I probably won't be getting this, but that is one impressive jump up from a Deluxe.

Yeah, I really like the scheme they used so it'll be nice to see it on a larger figure.

This makes me want to get the Prowl and Bumblebee now.

I think the problem is you'll need someone with a Japanese address.

Huh. I want to see actual pictures of that thing. I wasn't going to buy a Japanese Wingblade in hopes of the Hasbro one eventually coming out, but this one might get me depending on the color scheme.

I would hope for a Powered Convoy colored repaint at some point on any Prime, other than a movie one that is...

I wouldn't count on a Hasbro one at this point.

Plus the Hasbro one would use (in my opinion) the crappy Deluxe Earth mode figure while the Takara one uses the much better (in my opinion) Voyager mold.

I'm more interested in the book, personally.

Maybe it'll have some extra bits that'll be contrary to the Almanac or just "neat".

Or Hell, maybe TakaraTomy will use THIS as their means to connect Animated to the Movies since they don't appear to actually be doing it in the cartoon like that marketing manager said they would.

Eh, I like the black and red, but the gold is placed a little oddly. And, I'm with Smitty that the Elite Guard symbol is in a funny spot. If it's going to be that small, putting it high between the windows seems like a no-brainer.
