      whaaat.... I dream about that concert every day. I think its time for vic to get a makeover, I didn't really like the stuff over his teeth

      I don't think they're actually changing Vic. They just want a new image.

      Vic owns. Hate to see him get made over, but I'm sure 'Deth will make him look bad ass.

      yeah i was just bringing up the whole he is born again cristian because to me it basically makes everything about megadeth a show, im not saying you cant be cristian and play or promote this kind of music, but now its like everything is for business or show, .... bring on the flak yeah yeah ok so what if he is a better guitarist (as some of you say) than kirk, either way metallica are just better song writers, funny how some of mustains fans disaggree but dave sure thinks so, watch some kind of monster, hes all bawling and crap like "boo hoo i hate being number two"

      Vic was a pretty aggressive mascot i donno y they're replacing him, but neway there's always room for improvement. And also enuff of this Metallica - Megadeth Feud . Both bands equally rock. All i dream in these days is to see metallica and megadeth perform 2gether on stage without sumone forcing them 2 do so.

      vic looks like sommink from the predator movies... design him as sommink from the alien movies...

      ive seen vic as death, look at the Youthanasia album. i think the idea of giving him a makeover is pretty cool, as long as you can recognize Vic, its all good by me. But im not gonna enter in on this contest, cause i cant draw worth a shit, plus i already have those 3 guitars(cause Dave to me is the greatest writer, and Megadeth is the best). They all sound pretty badass, but i prefer the axxion, cause Dave designed it himself. And the fued with Megadeth and Metallica, im not gonna go there, cause they both are really good.

      man....I might have to enter just to try for second or third place...I saw a design on that site that looked too perfect....Maybe even a winner...

      Ahh the legendary Dave Mustaine, a man who can come up with so many badass sounding riffs and lyrics should also be aloud to redesign the "Bill of Right"

      I like the classic Vic, but as long as it doesn't suck, and the music stays the same then I guess it fine with me.

      Metallica with Cliff were better than Megadeth. Don't want to start any argument about it. But i do think that after Cliff died, Metallica got overly-technical, pedantic, and sold their souls for fame and money, which resulted in some pretty shitty albums (Load, Reload, St. Anger) whereas Megadeth have always put out really good albums. Nothing beats Metallica from Ride The Lightening to Master of Puppets though.

Metallica produced a few good albums (you know what I'm talking about) but they still weren't better than Megadeth, who by the way never sold out. They have had better lineups than they have now, but they still make good music. Nick pwns Lars Urlich with one arm. Dave pwns Hammett, and if any DUMBASS says Kirk is better than Marty Friedman they have absolutely no musical knowledge or respect. On a personal note, I like Dave's vocals better as well. Cliff was a better bassist than Elfesson though, but he never got to show his full potential.(RIP) I like Metallica, a lot, but when people come to a Megadeth thread that has nothing to do with music and start throwing random opinions when they probably haven't even heard that much Megadeth, they just piss me off. Don't pull this crap on me and say I'm just an uneducated moron who hates Metallica, I just prefer Megadeth out of the two great bands.(I listened to both bands earlier today)
      I totallt agrre with you about Cliff, but I prefer James vocals better then Dave's (at least in the 5 first albums).

      Megadeth can suck a fat cock....Im a hardcore Metallica fan and even Load & Reload beats Megadeths best album. Megadeth is a generic Metallica. And Mustaine is just pissed because Metallica turned out 100 times better than his pittyful band could ever turn out.

      yeha....i saw some of those designs on Deviantart and i'd be happy if they were to make the new magadeth logo.

      I was never a big fan of him, he was never as cool as Eddie, but changing him would be nuts, he IS Megadeth (apart from Dave Mustaine of course)

      i thought he was like a born again christian or something

      ^ not that theres anything wrong with that, just curious is all

      i thought he was like a born again christian or something
      He is, but what does that have to do with anything here? Vic's cool, I hope they don't change him too much if you get me. And that second prize has to be one of the sexiest guitars I have ever seen

      i love vic... i really dont want it to change... but the deviantART idea is pretty smart

      what for, I thought megadeth were over? the system has failed is supposedly their last CD, something tells me this is just a scam to make more money off merchandise.
