Capcom is Making a Life-Size, Wearable Proto Man Helmet


By popular demand, Capcom announced that it will be producing an official, life-size Proto Man helmet. You can pre-order the helmet right now from the Capcom Store for $160 (regularly $200).

But wait, there's more! Proto Man helmets ordered from the Capcom store will include - wait for it - an "authentic Proto Man scarf to complete your Proto Man look." It's made of fabric and sports the Proto Man seal on one tail.

Hit up the link above and grab yours! Thanks for the tip, Jonbon!

  2. Last tie, the helmets were limited to a production run equal to pre orders. That was a lie. The they shipped the first batch to retailers while delaying pre orders.

    I want this, but man I'm torn on giving capcom more money.

    1. You share my very same concerns. I'm very, very iffy on buying anything like this from the Capcom Store again after how they handled the Mega Man Helmet sales. I'm wondering if we'll see these helmets in GameStop and ThinkGeek as well. Sure, they say the scarf is a special, exclusive item, but who can tell? Money talks and if said retailers order enough, they'll likely sell the scarfs too. Who knows. I'm iffy, but it would be great for the collection.....hmm...

  6. Not good enough. I demand it includes a pair of angular sunglasses that go under the helmet, just like Blues wears. シ

  7. I really like this, with one caveat. I am not a fan of the blue stripes on the glasses. Those will be distracting and need to be removed.

    I hope they do a Zero helmet. I would totally buy that. Maybe an X helmet. I am not much of a fan of the regular Rockman helmet.

    1. ... I just noticed that. Why is that even "necessary"? To give it a more "authentic" look? God damn, do I hate it when people make replica stuff that has artificial shading and decoration. Even if those stripes are one-way only somehow, that's still annoying.

    2. The picture looks like a mockup to me, and I assumed that the blue lines were just part of the simulated lighting for the photo. Is this not the case?

      I have my doubts that all four pictures on Capcom's page (of one of which is shown here) are mock-ups, unfortunately...

      I doubt it. Usually, at this point, the photo is representative. Why mock up two blue lines?
      They are probably intended to simulate all the art with the eye line details.

    5. i also think they are part of this particular photo set. We need official clarification xD, because if they are indeed painted that would be an epic fail.

  8. Wow. That actually looks pretty sweet. Don't care for buying replica helmets, but this one actually looks badass.

  9. They might have just put them there so we could tell it came with a visor. Without the blue lines, the visor kinda blends into the black inside color of the helmet.

  10. Now we need Protoman's Arm canon and Shield. and we all be set.

  11. X helmet or bust. I would pay *good money* for an official, authentically designed X helmet.

    I'm sure a Zero helmet will come eventually too, I just hope it's well after X's is already designed and produced.

  12. MAN. This is like 5 kinds of awesome!
    I'll get one if can.
