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.

Shade Man's theme sounds like a mariachi song.

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.

@  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?

I know it wasn't but hey...I used to post like crazy on Don's boards and my nick is an awesome sounding mission name.

So, I can go with that.

I can't say I'm a huge fan of the Transtech Rhinox design, it's a nice design, but it just doesn't feel Transtech-y enough.


I thought the description we got in withered hope seemed... different than the actual visual here. Or was that just me?

Here's a 5-minutes-in-Photoshop shot at a more Transtech-y Rhinox. It's pretty much just "existing TT Rhinox" + "BM Tankor" shaken up in a bag and baked. I figure that's kind of what an actual TT Rhinox would have looked like back in '01, had one existed.

Re-reading his description in Withered Hope, first I notice it said he was "rust red", unless that was just the color of the holographic projection he was communication through. His head was described as "bullet shaped"; the actual image doesn't make me think of a bullet, but maybe that's just me. His cannons and shoulders sounded larger, and the head should be "in the middle of [his] chest".

In short, it sounds a lot more like that prototype God Fire Convoy posted than what was pictured. Keep in mind, I am not partial to either appearance, so it is just the inconsistency of it.
