25th Anniversary Mega Man Statue Returning This Month


Later this month, the 25th Anniversary Mega Man statue is being reissued through Big Bad Toystore and Entertainment Earth for $124.99. Pre-orders are now live on both sites.

For the uninitiated, the 10-inch statue features USB-powered LED lights on the base, helmet, and Mega Buster. Each one from the Capcom Store were individually numbered as part of its "limited availability." No telling how limited this run will be, though. If you missed out on the statue the last time, you'd be wise to put in a pre-order soon.

  2. It's not exclusive is they just reissue it. They need to stop with all this merchandise already.

  3. You can also order them on amazon.

    I wonder if these are renumbered 2001+? Or did capcom just stop with the numbering to sell as many as they can

  4. It's a nice statue and all, but $124.99 is what they're charging for it? Give me a break.

  5. Give me a break!! They are doing it to steal your money instead of making new megaman games! Dont pay them! Capcom of USA/Capcom of JAPAN, listen to us and do it or no profits to you! SIGHING!

    1. No profits=NO MEGA MAN.

      If Mega Man products do not bring in money, they will stop doing Mega Man all together. Merchandise is the only thing keeping it afloat.

    2. If this mindset is actually true then this will be cemented in my mind as the worst anniversary celebration for any video game series ever. Nevermind the fact that it just sounds dumb.

      "Buy all this merch that supposedly celebrates this series and you might get a new game eventually. Otherwise you get nothing."

      Gonna have to pass on that offer myself.

  6. There are...2000, WGAS? I thought it was limited to 1000 pieces produced. Since this is supposed to be a "collectable" anniversary statue, then it should remain limited to its original run. That's it. It's part of the reason most of us shelled out the money for it originally; to be a proud owner of this pretty impressive statue. It's part of its coveted allure. If they make more of them, then they'll just be a common product anyone can get.

    Merchandise is cool and all, and it's nice more fans have access to this, but instead of making more of the supposedly "limited", "special" pieces, Capcom should try actually making a game that would be worthy of that 25th Anniversary emblem.

  7. They are really boring with the goodies, Capcom is hypocrit.....I dont need the last toys or others things like that, i will buy only the old official goodies (good old times).
    Now, we need really a game, all the community is bored....
    You know guys, maybe they try to sell some things because we are like meal for them but they dont want care about a new game because it's too expensive to make for them (and they think megaman is not popular...)

    They are really foolish. I wont buy anymore, i will buy just if there is an official game. (and a good one, not like SFxMM, free but not really so good.

  8. Oh was it 1000? I forgot.

    Kinda funny these statues sold fast but the other silver one is just sitting there. No one wants it. lol

  9. I don't see any reason for people to be upset about this, the only reason the first run of the statues sold out so fast was because of the price scalpers who bought multiples of the statue and are now listing them on ebay for $300 and up.

    I would rather pay $25 extra then to pay $200 extra because I sure would not pay $300 for the statue knowing that the original price was $100.
