@  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)

@  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

@  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?

Apparently the whole Micron thing for Prime is Japan-only, so I doubt if these will be seen in the US, either.

A part of me ( something like 5% of my brainpower) tends to think of this weird paranoid Theory that exclusives like these are a form of revenge because we had easy access to some cybertron molds that were not that easily available in Japan. Namely Menasor and Quickmix. And some people were so pissed off by that that they decided to work for Takara, so they could develop stuff that would be impossible for fans and collectors from the rest of the world to acquire, and now their evil schemes are coming to fruition.

Pff, Quickmix and Menasor would have been easy for someone in Japan to get the US versions of, just Ebay it icon-waspy.gif

Interesting that there a few Microns being made for this, though. These ones and those other ones that turn into the weapons and all. Given they're all new molds I wonder if Hasbro has any plan at all, even if they are originally capsule toys. They did sell the previously blind-packed Micromaster Combiners, after all

And the gecko looks like the buzzsaw he used when he wanted to 'take a sample' of Ratchet in that drug abuse episode.

Man, these look awesome. I do hope they are not Takara Exclusive, but I'll get them even if they are.
