  1. Got a set of 3" figures already. They are awesome! Many, MANY thanks to KidRobot for having the common sense to make a set of 6 original robot masters. It's been TOOOOOOOOOOOO long since anyone's made one.
    Cross your fingers for a second wave that includes all 8 of the Megaman 2 robot masters.

    Heh, "Cutsman." Getting a Captain N vibe from this video... Anyway, clever that the green Mega Man doesn't have an arm cannon, since he doesn't have one when he uses Bomb Man's ability. Very cool of them to have put that much thought into it.

  3. Cool figures just wish they weren't blind boxes...

  4. Not a fan of any KidRobot merch so these are a pass for me. The robot masters look cool though but Megaman is just odd looking. I'd maybe consider getting the robot masters only if the nendoroid Megaman from GoodSmile does come out. Wish we'd be getting more D-Arts/SH Figuarts but I believe the line is dead, and if it is, again, they should have NEVER of done the Zero series Zero. But hey you people stupidly voted for him. And as many said before, he might kill the line/tank the line as did the Kotobukiya line, but nope you people wouldn't listen. So there you D-Arts/SH Figuarts Megaman line, DEAD! But if not dead then just stay away from the Zero series!!!!! lol.

  5. Why do they all look like the awful mega man from the sega picture shaking sonics hand? I don't understand why threw a thousand molds they still can't get a face right.

    1. I wonder if part of it is that, with the exception of Smash which is only a year old, Mega Man doesn't have much when it comes to 3D models in game to base a figure off of. Not that it's required, but it probably wouldn't hurt. There's things like the Powered up model, Battle and Chase, and the one in Cannon Spike, but that's about it for Classic Mega Man.

      Capcom themselves had to try multiple times to get the figures to look right.

    2. Over the past few years of various studios releasing Mega Man figures i've found that most Western based manufacturers never seem to be able to get the face right on Mega Man, First4Figures, these KidRobot ones & even Capcom USA's 25th Anniversary statue all had problems where the faces aren't quite in keeping with the official artwork. Eastern Studios on the other hand tend to get the faces bang on, the S.H. Figurarts/D-Arts line, the Bandai Modelling Soul mini figures, Kotobukiya's model kits & the X-Plus Giant figures seem to have nailed the looks perfectly...

    3. The D arts and sh figurarts are the only ones i'll spend money on anymore. It could very well be that there isn't any 3d models to go by, but at some point someone has to look at the freaking character and figure out how he looks. I was excited to get the other robot masters finally with these, but no. Not going to spend a penny on these ugly monstrosity's


      I'd kill for a d arts cuts and guts.

  6. It's an art style. All Kidrobot figures look that way. They're urban vinyls

    1. Naw the futurama and street fighter ones look much closer to their actual counterparts then these. these look ridiculously goofy and nothing like the source material

    2. You're being way too picky.

  7. I love these figures! Kinda sad they are blind boxed, but I got lucky with my purchases. I got four different figures from four boxes. I'll be buying the rest on eBay since I'm not going to risk buying more blind boxes and getting doubles of a certain figure. =) They're nice, though. I recommend them to anyone who loves quality figures.

    1. I'd buy a few more if I were you. eBay gougers are going nuts over Yellow Devil, Megaman w/o Helmet, Dr. Wily and Dr. Light. ($40-80 each from certain sellers)

      I bought 12 blind boxes and only ended up with one extra regular blue Megaman and Fireman. The remaining four I got off eBay for an additional $82.

  8. I despise blind boxes as they are such a cash grab. And I'm not paying gouger prices either. Some figures,like Bomb Man and Fire Man,look really cool while others like Mega Man and Ice Man look goofy.

    I'll probably pass on these unless I find them at a good price.


    And Pixel Dan's comment of "Cutsman" being his favorite robot master is a mega fail. If he's his favorite robot master,he should be able to say his name correctly. SMH.
