The Shimmer Gang by mayorlight The Shimmer Gang by mayorlight
For a while, I've been wanting to do a pic of Sunset Shimmer with both Snips and Snails. Reminiscing about Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, I decided to dress them up as the Doronbo Gang from Yatterman.

Snips being stout and Snails being skinny, I made them Tonzura and Boyacky respectively (although Boyacky has buckteeth like Snips). I was originally going to have Sunset holding Doronjo's signature skull pipe, but ultimately decided to replace it with Twilight's crown.

Penciled, inked by hand; colored in Photoshop CS1.

Working Music: Tensai Doronbo; various 70's anime songs

Sunset Shimmer, Snips, Snails (c) Hasbro
Doronjo, Tonzura, Boyacky (c) Tatsunoko

Please tell me you did this as a response to that one comment I made, once....

In other words, Guess it's a good thing I wasn't the only one to notice that, huh? Although I was going to modify the outfits to suit them....

Truth be told, I just thought of this as I was watching a Tatsunoko vs. Capcom gameplay video on YouTube.

Aye...but to think! That if I were more active I'd have done this just a week after the movie premiered; and when I saw it, even beforehand, I called it that Flash would make an Objection!!

I really need to act on my whims more often.

This is brilliant. It really does give me nods of TvC. Shame the game is out of print. I still have my copy but seeing them here gives nostalgia. Only thing missing is Twilight and Pinkie as Yattermans 1 and 2.

Actually, when I had this same idea I went through and equated each Tatsunoko to a Pony. My Yattermen were Applejack and Big Mac, Twilight and Shining were 2 of the 5 Gatchamen, Pinkie was Neo-Pony Casshan, you already know Hurricane Fluttershy, Rainbow became Ippatsuman...this making sense?

Very clever. :) I would have Fluttershy as Hurricane Polymer.

Glad I could capture that feeling. I only played that game at the arcade and at anime cons. Hopefully I can track down a used copy somewhere.

Good luck trying to find it. They're out of print due to licensing. Got anything else planned?
