I like the Sideways paintstyle for the Road Pig mold (ie: Double Face) Not bad.

Well, "Double Face" was the Japanese name of Armada Sideways after all...

Figured that. But I don't remember if I read anywhere earlier that his name was going to be Double Face. If I did, I missed it...

He was previously erroneusly announced as "Road Pig" by one or two sites, because he was a repaint of the Road Pig Mold. Since then, every time he was listed somewhere as "Double Face", people went "woa, i thot roadpig!!!!"

Quoth Nevermore:

If his tech specs bear that connection out, he'll be the first Armada/Micron Legend character to make it to Robotmasters. Either way, I need to catch up, badly. I've only got four Robotmasters right now.

Well, yet again no decent colour scheme for the Road Rocket mould. Double Face and the Cyberjets are musts, though - though for God's sake, can someone at HasTak come up with the minor brainwave of switching the Lasercycle moulds sometime so we have Heroic Pig and Evil Rocket? Simple, surely?

As for stupid transparent red monkey, well, my resolve to not collect all of RobotMasters is finally unshakeable. What an ugly waste of plastic.

Road Pig could be done as a police bike. Road rocket could probably get away with a Nightbird redeco (that'd make some Gee Juan fanboys cream their pants. "OMG!!!! N!gH+B!rD!!!11one"). To tell you the truth, I wouldn't be too broken up if they came out with Road Pig and skipped Road Rocket (unless they did the Nightbird thing. I guess there's a little fanboy left inside me. I was hoping he'd have been fully digested and pooed out by now, though. ). I don't like Rocket that much. If I were to get it, it'd be because it was a nice homage.
