Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Mega Man and Proto Man
Everybody's favorite toy customizer Donald "Kodykoala" Kennedy is back with another Mega Man creation. This time the master of plastic has paid tribute to the toy that inspired Mega Man's nickname, the "Blue Bomber": Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots.
"I started this around the same time as the Hungry Hungry Koopas, but I couldn’t figure out a way to really make this pop," writes Kodykoala. "I was introduced to EL wire, and I knew it would work great for the ropes of the ring. This is a fully functional game, and works great."
You can find even more detailed shots on Kodykoala's Flickr page. However, looking at it can only tell you so much! Wouldn't you much rather own it? Not one to horde his work all to himself, Kodykoala has announced a raffle to win the piece.
"This is going to be the last board game that I do for a while, so if you are interested in owning it, you can purchase a raffle ticket and enter to win this," he writes. "Tickets are $3 and there will be only 300 tickets available, so odds of winning are really good. Drawing will be December 1, and will be in the mail before Christmas. I can only guarantee delivery in the US before Christmas though (international shipping can be a little flaky). Item must be claimed within 30 days of the drawing, or else I will draw another name. Raffle is open to anyone in the world, and I will cover shipping. Tickets are available in My Store."
There's no way I'm passing this opportunity up. I mean, how cool would that look on your mantle? Click here to buy your ticket!
