Is his jacket actually grey?  I haven't seen him in-person in years (will do that soon), but I thought from his little mugshot that the Operator gave you that his jacket was a shade of blue.

Feels so wrong not recognizing him, though.  This guy needs to get some characterization.  Makes me wish I hadn't put off writing down fanon ideas for the time being while I write down other stuff.

His jacket is grey when Furball frees him from the crate cell.

I particularly like Mick because his design had some thought put into it. I imagine him to be on the quieter side and doesn't like it when things get chaotic.

I was trying to remember where the Tom Toms mention having captured Mick (somebody complains of him talking about a bunch of stuff about the end of the universe), so I took some time to do some more digging around in the game's files today (unfortunately, I think that dialogue was actually in text format, so I'll have to replay a level or two to find out).  But in the game files, aside from there being lots of alternate takes (including most, if not all, of Bombay's lines being said by what almost sounds like Pelon's VA, but is definitely a strangely feminine voice for a Tom Tom), Furball actually exclaims "furballs!" at one point about Benito getting away (is that included in the game when you raid the HQ?  Don't remember, but it's named as if it was an alternate take), which is kind of a strange thing to say.  Amusingly, though, he holds the "f" bit for a moment as if he was about to exclaim something else, so maybe it was excluded for that reason if it isn't actually in the game.  Judging from the filenames, I'm pretty sure it was just replaced by some other VA yelling Benito's name, since I remember hearing that line in-game.  Maybe I'll put these all in a video at some point, since there's even a lot of stuff cut out from the opening sequence.  BLiNX actually confirms that Chron's a team leader in one of them, though.  Going to be hard deciding whether to use the cut dialogue as real canon or not.  I'd write down all the other extra info it gives (like the name of the teams of Matteo and Caio), but it'd be redundant, since I think I'll put it all in one video anyways.  It's a damned gold mine, and honestly, most of the cutscenes are a lot more fluid without all the cut dialogue.  I'm half-tempted to edit together a director's cut of the game with everything put back in.

...shit, Cino's name even gets pronounced a bunch of times, and it turns out I've always been saying it wrong.  I knew I used to pronounce NecoJi's name wrong, but damn it.  It's said so many times, too - why did it always get cut?

I'll try to get on top of putting all those clips in a video.  It'll take some time, so it might take a week or so, but there's no way in hell I'm not sharing this.  The amount of cut content is crazy.  Actual new BLiNX content after all these years just feels so strange.

Ooh, it even has the audio for a few cutscenes with the dialogue removed.  There's at least one scene with really cool music that's pretty awesome to get a hold of.  Damn, this is going to be a lot to put together.

On another note, with regard to the teams figuring out their outfits and flag, there's actually some concept art of a Tom Tom team choosing their uniform and flag.  Kinda funny to see.

Great. Now I'm fucking excited for new Blinx content. Heavier Breathing Looking forward to the video.

No recollection of Furball saying "Furballs!" that I can remember. It's probably the only cat related phrase actually said by a time sweeper, besides Benito using "scardy cats" as an insult.

I'm sure the concept art of a Tom Tom team picking out their outfits is in of the galleries you can unlock. Do you have access to the rest of the concept art? I've always wanted to draw some stuff based on the concept art but I can't reference from it when it only lasts a few seconds on the TV. Damn frustrating.

I've compiled about half the list of the files I'll need to put into the video, so I've made some progress, at least.  Not sure how much more I'll get done on it today.  If it isn't too hard manipulating the cutscenes, though, I really wouldn't mind that "director's cut" thing to put it in a more presentable format.

I looked through that scene, actually (I'm comparing all the files to the actual game scenes to ensure that I'm not missing anything or including anything I just forgot was in the game, not that I don't have a ton of the game's script memorized by now), and instead of hearing Furball say "furballs," you just hear somebody, definitely not Furball's normal VA, yell "Benito!" instead.  Always thought that line sounded so strange.

I actually ripped all of the video files from the game, so I have all of the theater unlockables in original quality.  All I've actually screenshotted and saved thus far is the art that was used in the credits sequence (nets you some nice art for a bunch of characters - NecoJi, Catherine, Pelon, Chron, Picaro, Cino, and Caio), but I can try to find the time to save the rest soon.

Oh, there's also a bunch of audio for ambience that I'm not sure is actually used in the game or not.  Every stage has its own ambience, but if it's in-game, it's too quiet to hear, with the exception of the Tom Tom base's really loud humming.  Could put that somewhere if you want it, I guess.

...actually, having counted all the clips with cut audio, an actual majority of the game's audio clips have something removed in-game.  It'd be cool to have the extra smoothness in the story, and a few scenes make way more sense with the audio restored, but there's no way I'd have time to put those all back in.  Guess I'll just stick all the audio clips in one video instead, then.

You're tearing me apaht, Catherine!

Thank god I never actually draw stupid little ideas that pop into my head, because there's no way I'd ever be okay with having produced that crossover.

It's ok, I have an OC who's also madly in love with Catherine, it's just that Necoji proposed to her first.
