@  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.

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

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...

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

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

Eh, sometimes I almost wish they had stuck with the name Hot Shot for the movies, instead of opting for Bumblebee.

Imagine stores across the world, flooded with Hot Shots! IMAGINE!!!

That is the mystery, isn't it?


This new Shot figure is pretty great, though. Here's hoping for more non show characters or more future show characters.

This new Vehicon looks quite good to me. I'm thinking I need about four. Four is a good troop builder size for my collection.

Hot Shot looks decent enough to get also.

Check it: Arcee!

http://www.facebook....8...e=1

She's still got a wheel hangin' off her back, and I think the "shoulder wings" are better on this version. Blue on the arms is nice. And the massive gun. That too.

Have to wonder if the Generations formula is being used here, and we've got extra heads on more molds than just this one.

I very much like the blue forearms and better "wings".

The only thing I'm not too sure on is the seemingly lack of details on the torso. The boobs and abs look like they should be on a simpler figure compared to the details on his limbs, back kibble and head.

*Edit* After a closer look, it seems that there may be some details on the stomach area that are being mostly obscured by the lighting and the globby silver paint. So...I guess that's better icon-hotrod.gif

My main problem with the FE was the wings hanging on the outside of her arms rather than behind. This fixes it, so I'm happy.

Yeah, I might like this Arcee just slightly more. I wonder if she's a little smaller due to that huge gun, or if some of the pieces are recycled and she's about the same. I hope all those silver parts are actually going to be pink. I've always really liked that they kept the pink in her color scheme.

As long as she's the same height (or preferably shorter) than RID Cliffjumper, she's work out fine. The FE one towers over him.

I wonder where that huge gun goes in bike mode. That might not be pretty.
I also wonder if she'll come with a second blade. They look like they can peg into her arms.

She shares no pieces, same as Cliffjumper, Optimus, and Bumblebee.

Wow, that's the first RID figure that actually looks better than the FE.

Well, check that. The RID figure looks more show accurate. I'm not convinced it will be a better toy than the FE one, but the show accurateness (and undoubtably smaller size) makes it a purchase. Besides, I'll buy any femmebot toy regardless. icon-waspy.gif

Though I find it hilarious that they went to the trouble to give her a show accurate gun, to the point where it will fit over her forearms, and then made it 400x too big.

I love the FE Arcee, but this one looks good, has the wings raised more (and on her back, but that wasn't my big complaint) and will be smaller.

Also I want it as Flamewar, preferably with a more G1-style Arcee head for the lulz.
