@  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...

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?

Already pre-ordered. I can always cancel, but if these are individual microns, I want in.

I think this came up in another thread, but.. anyone have a good reference between price at BBTS for these and the size category? Maybe some kind soul would even care to make a sorted list based on such.

Redecoes maybe?

Ideally, I'd love to get a whole set. At eight bucks a pop though, with twelve figs, that's not a small investment.

Eh, at least the non-minicon Prime stuff is likely to see release in the US. I'd wager we'll get the Vehicon Jets, etc.

Same here, which is why I wanna know what I'd be ordering. Sure, I could cancel pre-orders, but placing em all then canceling some will be a pain.

Here's hoping that for the price of each Micron they come painted this time. I don't mind assembling them myself, it sounds kinda fun actually, but if they're priced as Legions then they had better have SOME kind of paint on them.

I don't think they will be painted. at $8 a piece, they are the price of an American legion-class figure. Factor in BBTS having shipping from overseas and the subsequent markup for profit, they are probably around the equivalent of $4-5 in Japan. At that price, I wouldn't expect much, if any, paint apps.

I'm excited as hell that the arms microns are getting individual releases. The figure sets were too expensive, in general, and I already had the PRID versions of most of them. I love targetmasters and am definitely interested in these. I preordered one of each and may cancel a few depending on the final pictures. There's too much up in the air to know right now.

I also preordered a Jet Vehicon, Ironhide, and Airrachnid. Just in case they get cut from the tail end of the 2012 assortments (like Soundwave and Wheeljack from DoTM).

They might be painted. The legion figures from Japan are going for about the same price on BBTS as it is.

Hopefully, there'll be pictures soon. And what is this "Darkness Megatron"? Seems to be the same price as Gaia Unicron.

I'll be surprised if its anything more than a black and purple "Dark Energon" repaint of Weaponizer Megs.
