@  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)

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

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

Peaceman, Fracas and Aimless.

From 28 December 2011, by spending 3,000 yen or more at participating stores on Transformers Prime merchandise, customers will receive a free Mini-con.

Otherwise, I am underwhelmed by the repaints, shoddy color choices. I made better repaints of these guys myself.

I'm glad it's Blowpipe rather than Fracas again. This way, these Mini-cons can be used as either Prime or as a continuation of the United Mini-cons.

Still zero mention of G1/United/Targetmasters or anything of the sort on the page.

Not quite... Pointblank isn't orange, and Triggerhappy is more gray, and neither Trigger or Misfire really have much black.

I guess we'll have to see what the instructions say, it could go either way as it makes no mention of them being United but the 2nd set of United ones were marketed with Autobot Alliance as they had new releases the day they were released. These do follow in the fashion of the United ones and use characters not yet used for that line.

Yeah, upon closer inspection you're right. I wonder if it was a halfhearted attempt at it anyway. Aimless is definitely more Misfire than he is Aimless.

But this does make me want them MORE.
