Replica Proto Man Buster Up for Pre-order on ThinkGeek


Guys. Guys. It's finally happening!





By way of ThinkGeek:

If you have the Mega Man Mega Buster Gun Replica, you already know how this works, but for those who don't, here's a short tutorial.
Turn it on and you'll hear a power up sound and watch the power meter fill up. Reach in, grab the handle, and you're ready for action. Quickly pull the trigger and you'll hear a single fire sound and the end will flash. Hold in the trigger, though, and you'll watch the power meter fill and the sound intensify until you release the trigger, firing a charged shot! When you are finished vanquishing evil robots for the day, switch the Proto Buster off and enjoy the power down lights and sounds. There's a new sheriff in Monsteropolis - and it's you!

  1. Might as well wait for the inevitable 50% off sale.

    1. Something tells me that the only difference between this one and the Mega Man one are the outer shell. Hope I'm wrong though because the whistle would be perfect.

  4. I guess that old picture really was just a mock-up or concept. There's no artificial sheen or wear on this final version. And that makes me happy.

  5. I propose we start a fund to buy one of these for Protodude : D

    Unless he's already pre-ordered one. Which seems likely : )

    (The arm cannon canon? cannonon'n ah there's a joke somewhere there)
