This Supercool Kit Will Help You Make Your Own Rockman Comics
Well here's a neat piece of merchandise I've never not come across before. This is a "make your own comic" kit. It comes with different cutouts of Rockman 5 characters in varying poses, and you just place and trace to make action scenes. "Will I become the next Hitoshi Ariga if I play with this?" Probably not. The only thing guaranteed is that you'll have some fun, especially if you've got a little Blue Bomber fan to share it with.
I fondly remember playing with something similar back in the day; place and sketch Power Rangers, Batman and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles kits. I didn't have much Mega Man merch as a kid, but if I’d seen this it would have no doubt brought hours of entertainment. I used to be quite the comic book drawer, you know!
Right now the kit is being auctioned on Yahoo Auctions and sits at a mere 500 Yen (roughly $5.29 US) -- a nice value for a neat little collectible. If nobody claims it, well, I might just snatch it up myself!
