Felyne Mega Man: From Concept To Figure


In celebration of Capcom’s 30th anniversary, the iconic Monster Hunter Felyne will soon appear as a figure dressed as Mega Man. Before then, though, manufacturer Ichiban Kuji invites fans to get a peek behind the curtain where the figure's nine month design process is laid bare. From concept art to prototype molds, this report details all there is to know about the cat's conception.

We almost had a helmet with cat ears, by the way. In the end, however, it looked a little too much like Tango. See it for yourself in the above link!

  5. I like how Capcom's 30th aniversary gets all their franchises gussied up in ugly pseudo-8-bit sprites in obvious homage to Megaman. Shows that they really do only see him and his iconic art style as an easy marketing ploy.

  6. "We almost had a helmet with cat ears,"
    Now I wonder if the helmet isn't uncomfortable for his ears...
