More Jin Saotome Custom Mega Man Figures

Jin Saotome returns with a few new G.I Joe/Mega Man crossover figures. This time, the likes of Zero, Heat Man and Snake Man join the fray. As usual, Jin has provided small back stories for the characters, Zero's below.
"Where one hero exists others will follow, Zero being no exception. Arriving from his reality to reunite with X, Zero found himself hip deep in Cobra and Wily's troops. They were waiting for him to arrive but what they weren't expecting was the incredible power and speed that Zero possessed. With a blade that can shear through steel and stone he escaped the trap and found his way to the Joe headquarters. Now it was time to regroup with X and stop Wily once and for all!"
The rest of the lot can be found at Jin's Ebay store.

  1. Interesting story...But the GI Joe is pretty damn awesome! I also saw the Heat Man one he made, and it looks kind of creepy, but sweet!

  5. Yeah, I agree, the GI Joe figures don't make great Rockman models.....but nice try.

  6. This guy's figures always reminded me of what Mega Man characters might look like in a big budget live-action Mega Man film.

  10. @Midnite: KR Knight is the first person I thought of when I saw Zero's visor. I'm surprised someone besides me and Ace in the RockMan fanbase watches Kamen Rider.

    ...I wonder if he used some of the parts from the Kamen Rider toy line to make Zero. Some of those parts do look almost identical to the KR Knight model.

  11. They are cool and creepy at the same time!
    Napalm Man, Grenade Man and Mars would look great in G.I. Joe format.
