Fantastic 3D Printed Mega Man Figurines Up For Grabs


What do you do when you have a 3D printer and access to video game models with low to moderate polygon counts? Why, you make some figurines! That's exactly what Vidalcris did with Mega Man and Mega Man X's models from Mega Man Powered Up/Maverick Hunter X. They're small, but perfect recreations -- and they're for sale, too.

Mega Man stands at 50mm, Mega Man X at 60mm. For the creative folks out there you can order a 10-inch, completely blank Mega Man figure... yours to paint! Pretty cool, wouldn't you say? Hit up those links if you're interested.

Personally, I wouldn't mind a whole set of Mega Man Legends figurines. That's about as low poly as we can get! Bring it on.

  1. hrm $25 total for the mega man one if they were limited I would be more inclined to buy one.

  2. They're going to want to be careful about this. Square Enix shut down another guy for selling stuff based on actual FF7 lowpoly models, Capcom would have grounds to do the same.

    1. And these look like they're clearly based off of the models from Maverick Hunter X and MegaMan Powered Up.

  3. 3D printing... It does seem like the only way one would ever be able to own a set of quality Megaman Robot Master Figures.

    I should like to acquire the models for the board game tokens and blow them up to about 5-8". They'd look great on my shelf.

  4. Yea, I don't see how that's not copyright infringement.

  5. I would grab these while they are available if you are even remotely interested; CAPCOM will shut this down pretty quickly, as someone is clearly making money off their IP.

    I think it's a cool idea to 3D print models directly from the game, but it's not legally viable.

  6. I would have bought a 3d Printer and done this ages ago, but I really cant stand the plastics texture on most of the models I've seen.

  8. Companies worried about people making money off their properties? They might as well perform a thorough sweep on Etsy, to be fair.

  9. No Roll figurine?! Boooo, boooooo!!

    Then again, considering her Powered Up model doesn't have any underwear...

  10. If there were Legends figurines I'd throw all my zenny at this person, copyright infringement be damned.

  11. Know what, I'll buy a 3D printer so I can make articulated figures from any characters I want! And a 3D scanner to help!
    (See prices) D:
    On second thought... I think I'll settle with papercraft.
