Pretty Soon, You Can Buy a Real Mega Man Helmet (Updated)


Among the many goodies at the San Diego Comic-Con Capcom booth, you'll find this beauty: an official, wearable Mega Man helmet.

According to Capcom, the helmet it's "made of high quality ABS plastic with a high polish finish, authentic proportions and details, plus working LED lights! A unique clamshell hinge allows the front and back half of the helmet to easily open up to comfortably fit your head inside the soft padded interior for a perfect fit."

The helmet will be on display at SDCC, with a limited run of pre-orders slated to hit Capcom's online store soon. No word on price but I'd wager $100+.

UPDATE: Pre-orders are live! Get 'em while they last!

Now if you want something a bit cheaper (and smaller), SDCC will play host to a 5-pack of mini Mega Man helmets. These are the same helmets that appeared in Loot Crate earlier this year. Their 1/64 scale... perfect for desktops!

  2. Oh, man. Now that is perfect. I'd wager $100+ too but that's just too cool to pass up. Even if you're not wearing it, it would be an incredible display piece. Definitely a perfect piece for any cosplay. Paired with the buster, the ensemble is pretty much complete!

    Heck, they might as well just create the other pieces and ship them with a light blue body suit and be done with it. lol

  6. Yeah, it looks a little big. Plus Capcom sort of sucks when it comes to quality control. My MM light-up statue has a problem with the LEDs and is crumbling apart at the base. Also I heard bad reviews of several of their other products that are fragile. I think I'll pass, my knit one fits just fine :)

    1. Hey, they are doing it for money for themselves. Without us, they have nothing. What a greedy. Jeez.

  7. Does Mega Man have pink ear lights? I thought they were red. Maybe it's just an effect of the light.

    Anyway looks rad but I don't know if I can justify buying it to myself.

  8. Something is wrong with this picture. Megaman is a male and she wear male helmet ? Sexism, perhaps ? Sighing. Anyway, she looks funny in it. Yeah, it is a little bit too big and the ear supposed to be red lights instead of pink.
