@  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?

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...

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

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?

It was also instituted because the difference between Mega and Ultra was, word-wise, not very obvious.

That's also why Super got axed in favor of Leader.

You say that, but Basics/Scouts don't exist as part of the mainline any more - the closest equivalent (Cyberverse Cmdr) is now the large class of the small-scale line.

Which, of course, makes "Deluxe" a nonsense title, since how can the most basic type of toy in the line be "Deluxe"? icon-waspy.gif

And "Mega" and "Ultra" aren't nouns in common usage, so talking about "a mega" or "an ultra" just sounds weird icon-arcee.gif


You're missing the point.

What is your point, then? [Other than a generic "their old stuff was better" gripe, that is.]

And now Leader's been axed in favor of Weaponizer!

(I don't see Voyagers going anywhere though: the $20-$25 price-point is used in almost every major toy-line: if Hasbro gives it up, it'll be because everyone else has too.)
Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

Well, the Bumblebee packaging did say "Weaponizer Class" on it, but nowhere did it say "Leader Class". But more importantly, the Prime "Weaponizer" class toys are not Leader class toys. It's a new size class entirely. The Weaponizers seem to be a bit smaller, and MUCH MUCH simpler than the Leaders, coming in at a $30 price point, and not a $45 one as Leaders were. This is of course assuming that the information at toyfair was accurate and reported accurately.

With no more movie line, Generations only being deluxes, and Prime seeming to have "Weaponizers" but not Leaders, it would seem that the Leader size class died with Ironhide... icon-screamer.gif
Ah, Vehicons... EXTERMINATE!...yes.

Jerry Jivoin told me himself at Toy Fair!

...along with the whole 'Powerizers/Revealers aren't the new names for Voyagers/Deluxes'.
