D-Arts’ Mega Man Ultimate Armor figure

D-Arts has some of the coolest toys ever created, and this one really showcases that to the fullest extent. Capcom revealed that this Mega Man X figure, equipped with ultimate armor, will come with swappable hands/mega buster, terrific articulation D-Arts is known for creating, and full fucking detail. Unfortunately, the company did not reveal how much this is going to cost and if it’s going to be sold outside of Japan.

Yes, Mega Man was on the Genesis
There’s been a Genesis-styled chiptune cover of some Mega Man music making the rounds on the Internet, which has been making people ask, “What if Mega Man was released on the Genesis?” Well, it was! Rockman: Mega World was released in late ‘94 for the Mega Drive in Japan and was released in ‘95 as Mega Man: The Wily Wars in Europe and Brazil.
The game was an upgraded compilation of the first three Mega Man games. It never received a physical release in the US, but was available on Sega Channel, the satellite service.
All versions of the game are collectible, going for at least $250. Don’t be fooled though. Any physical copy you see with Genesis branding is a reproduction and is worth about $40, not the three digit prices you’ll see on eBay.

Mega Man Hoodie With Hidden Built-In Mega Buster

Capcom teamed up with fashion label Punk Drunkers to make some limited edition Rockman apparel including the ballin’-ass hoodie pictured above. The sleeve turns into a Mega Buster, fools!!! And that black one is all kinds of hot. 14,700 yen ($189 US) is pretty steep though.

The t-shirts will set you back 5,250 yen ($67 US).

Kind of glad I don’t have that kind of money to throw around right now because I’d probably wear the hoodie everywhere and “pew-pew” complete strangers in public. Who wouldn’t though, am I right?

Happy Rockman Day! 6/9/11

Quick Japanese Lesson:

"6" - "Roku
"9" - "Ku
Roku + Ku = Rokku" - "Rock

June 9th = Rockman Day!

This is the first year in which Capcom officially recognizes the day fans have dedicated to the Blue Bomber. In fact, Capcom has released an official commemorative wallpaper which you can find here - and it’s pretty awesome if you ask me!

What Is It They Say About a Fool and His Money?
You’ve got to love eBay, the magical land where things that don’t exist somehow exist. Take for example this Genesis copy of Mega Man: The Wily Wars. “But physical copies of that game only came out for the European and Japanese Mega Drive systems,” you say. Well, that fact hasn’t stopped 17 people (as of May 3) from bidding on the Genesis artifice.
