    So it would appear that DHX held a press release recently unveiling the new design for the new "Mega Man" cartoon set to appear next year.

    What do you guys think of the direction they are heading?

    WARNING MY OPINION AHEAD:
    Huh. Not exactly what I was expecting, but at the same time just what I expected.
    To be honest, I can see bits of the overall Rockman legacy in the design, such as the Classic body type, X forearms and helmet, and EXE colors. And of course a lot of the design seems to fit the American slick-cartoon feel, like their previous works, which is just what they told us to expect in the first place. Perhaps this is not the Mega Man we want, or the Mega Man we need, but the Mega Man we deserve. Eh probably not, but I still kinda want to see where this goes before dooming it.
    We should probably look to this as "another Blue Bomber", and not a replacement/revisit for the Classic series like the Archie comics were going for. Think about what EXE was. I mean, this is not as drastic of a change as that, but still going for kinda the same thing, just this time being done by an American studio rather than a Japanese one-
    ...
    What are we fighting for again...?
    Seriously, though, let's wait to see more before condemning it completely.

    Thanks to TMMN for the heads up.

    EDIT: Should I have posted this in News rather than TV?

    MEGAMAN LOOKS LIKE SHIT!

    Man of Action's the one behind Ben 10 and Gen. Rex, right?

    The original Ben 10 was watchable, Alien Force barely and Omniverse is garbage

    Yeah, that's them. They also did Unlimited Spider Man, which I thought was OK, but still not comparable to other iterations.

    Never knew they made that. Unlimited Spider Man was actually decent imo but not as great as the 60s (was it?) Piderman

    This is going to suck balls.
    Capcom is determined to kill this franchise...

    I think they may already be under the impression that it is dead, and this is them bringing it back to life.

    I think you might be right. It really sucks though, Mega Man is my favorite franchise and I can't believe what's happened to it.

    I'm not the intended audience for this so it doesn't bother me, I actually think it's kind of funny. He should team up with the Mega Man that appeared on the cover of the first game.

    I think it looks good, but of course everyone will hate it because it's new and slightly different.

    If you think it looks good that's fine. You're entitled to your opinion.
    If I didn't have anything to compare it to I might think it looks fine, it's the fact that they're taking an established franchise and changing it so much is why some people are so upset.

    He looks like he's 5 years old and, based on his design, the show is going to that crappy quasi-CG stuff that's been so popular lately. Like RWBY and similar. Either make it obvious CG, make it so realistic that you have to wonder if it's CG, or just go straight animation...there's nothing wrong with that! ^_^

    I imagine this will run along the same level of intelligence as most shows for kids these days... But, meh....the pinnacle was the MegaMan/Mega X crossover episode in the original show! ^_^ The network battler/exe stuff has never interested me.
