While this Mega Man figure has been on the market for a while, my local anime store, Sakura Media, never had it in stock – until this week. In a sea of heroic robots, this unit stands out really well, and is nicely detailed. In addition to being articulated, Mega Man comes with extras – including facial expressions, buster cannon and an energy tank. Personally, I’m more of a pre-assembled figure fan, but I can’t say no to classic Mega Man.
Setting aside a few hours, Mega Man slowly came to life. The directions were fairly clear and easy to understand, which is important when making a model. The only downside, and this is probably my fault because I’m not used to putting together these kits, was the annoying little plastic tabs from where the parts joined the mould frame. I used scissors to clip the part from the frame and then a sharp utility knife to remove the remaining tabs. The end result showed a bit of discolouration.
It’s a really neat figure and comes with so many accessories to change the functionality, which will keep any collectors shelf safe from Dr. Wily. The price can vary between $40-$60 USD, although I paid $29.99 CAD thanks to a no tax sale. Don’t forget, the Blue Bomber’s sister Roll (purchased separately) too!
