Flame Man *IKA* "Flam Man" (Incorrectly Known As....stupid localization typos)
Now you see Flame Man was made in Saudi Arabia. The only structures of note were holy mosques and Mecca. I felt it would be inappropriate to use these as the background so i just went with my normal design. Came out great! 3 for 3 when it comes to fire-based Robot Masters.
Blizzard Man was designed by a scientist in Canada. The background is the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies: Mount Robson. Love how this sig came out....much better than its original design.
Plant Man is Brazil's entry. The flower you see behind him is Brazil's national flower: Laelia purpurata var. carnea (a type or orchid). Plant Man is my favorite redesign of the original Robot Masters. He grew in my favor more when i found that the flowers colors match the colors and Plant Man's head....excellent attention to detail on Capcom's part. I wish the pic of plant man was of a better resolution.
This is the Native American designed Robot Master. I could have gone the extra mile and made sure the blanket design was from a tribe located in middle America as the scientist was but i got lazy and just took the first pattern i saw. I made an alternate one with a Southwestern US vibe...i.e. sunsets and cacti but my friends like the patterned one and i didn't want to risk anyone *cough* not understanding that the black blobs they where seeing where cacti.
Yamato man *AKA* Japan Man
If the AKA didn't give it away, Yamoto man is of Japan design. From the beginning i wanted Yamato Man to have a cherry blossom as the background. After i completed this is...it was like the 4th one....i recalled MM6's story and remade the others before it with the backgrounds. I left Yamato out of it because i like the background so much. Also here's the place where i got it from: MOTIF
Knight Man serves the Queen of England. Behind him is Buckingham Palace. Knight Man was just a big lump of steel so the best i could do was have him stand guard...menacingly. I find it funny that Yamato man's weapon is Knight Man's weakness. (And even funnier the weapon that Tomahawk Man, a technically "American" robot, gives is Yamato Man's weakness)
Wind Man is a Chinese designed Robot Master. As you can tell, i placed the great wall of china as his background. It's fitting too since the redesign looks like its wearing a hat of military design. (while the original was a pull cord fan...go USA! just as a note, Knight Man and Wind Man are designed by two American kids. Nintendo Power held a contest and Capcom picked the two best designs)
