Yeah, but it's more of a play on words- Dokurobot. Dokuro means skull, so I guess literally it's Skullbot, but it's the play on words that makes it Skull Robot. You probably already knew that, but I'm just saying this for anyone who might not know.

I'm sure Ian could come up with some great ideas for the other 7 down the line. I imagine something like the extra Robo-Robotnik bodies that were hidden somewhere in early Sonic issues. Maybe Wiy is saving them for something, like Worlds Unite.

I don't think Wily has had the time to create any other Doc Robots, let alone 7 more. He designed this one with Dr. Light and was sneaking around the whole time.

Not to mention the skull is mostly used as Wily's insignia on his castles and boss mechs.

Man that cover...Doc Robot is looking pretty scary. Definitely going to be interesting to see how Mega Man is able to beat him, especially when Doc has all the MM2 Robot Masters' abilities at his disposal. It would be pretty cool to see Mega Man matching each of them with the abilities of the MM3 Robot Masters, but I'm more used to seeing that happen at the end with the final boss/Wily fights.

Who did the covers? Are there any preview pages up?

Didn't about that Dokuro Bot skull pun, that's really boss :)

Hope Doc Robot survives and gets his act together.

Gotta admit though, the literal translation "Skull Robot" from it's Japanese name sounds more appropriate all the time. I'm guessing that they'll be foregoing the rematch with the eight Robot Masters as they did during the Mega Man 2 adapt-it'd be pretty hard to pull off anyway-but that still leaves:

Kamegoro Maker
Yellow Devil 2
Copy Robot with Holograms
Wily Machine 3
AND Gamma for Mega Man to contend with.

Naturally the Wily Machine and Gamma will appear in 48, but I'm curious about those other three bosses and where they'll fall in the second MM3 arc.


They might not necessarily appear, in The Return of Dr. Wily Picopico-kun didn't appear at all.


Well, now it sounds like the Kamegoro Maker and Yellow Devil 2 made it in.

I got this issue yesterday but haven't had the time to read it yet. I'll make sure to do that sometime this morning.

Edit: Okay. I read it and will wait on giving thoughts until the spoiler thread's up.

I've also received the issue and have a bit of a burning need to speak on its quality.
