It's cool for those who like this kind of thing. I rather have something closer to the original, personallyReplyDelete
Not gonna lie... I don't really dig the look nor design of these.ReplyDelete
Heh, still have my servbot one I bought at SDCC about two years or so ago. They're pretty darn cute things to have on your desk.ReplyDelete
Pretty nice items.ReplyDelete
Sadly, it's just more for the D-Arts purists to shit on. Be grateful for the Mega Man merchandise you get.
I can't imagine these NOT ending up on the Capcom store. They've put out bobble buds of just about every single game they've released in the past year.ReplyDelete
I think they look awesome. Most of the toys I have a problem with are ones that are trying to look like something from the games and fail. These are self aware of their own silliness, much like the recent SD keychains.ReplyDelete
I'm excited for these! Pretty cute. I like D-Arts but it's not like there can't be stuff like this too.ReplyDelete
Next wave? Roll, Shadow Man, Bubble Man?
@Prof Megaman: I'd rather a bobble head like the Sonic one I have. Maintain proper body and head shape. Perhaps make the head a little bigger. Facts a fact, this piece of merchandise won't appeal to everyone. Not everyone is a fan of deformed characters, which is why not everyone is a fan of Powered Up.ReplyDelete
I just wish they'd do more than just Classic, X and maybe Legends stuff (mainly just the ServBofs 99% of the time) for these kinda things.ReplyDelete
Cause I'd buy the shit out of some ZX, EXE and SSR ones of these things.
Or if the damn Evil Ryu one could drop in price by $110. >_>
What a COLOSSAL waste!!!ReplyDelete
Yes, I understand that as MM fan I should be happy that we have merch at all, but really???
I pride myself on the collection that I do have and some of the items, really, just got purchased in my younger years and only because it was RM/MM.
But i wouldn't even waste my time to look at this if it was in a local store.
This company will lose money on this, will think that there are no fans for the series and then make no other toys/merch for the character because of the first line they put out (Jazwares anyone!?!?!).
Such a shame.
I think Elec Man is the better one of these bobble heads.ReplyDelete
These look pretty cool. I also have the Servbot one. Love to bring these home to keep him company.ReplyDelete
HA! You've gotta be kidding me!ReplyDelete
Jazwares already did these, and they'll NEVER sell out of Toys 'R Us' clearance aisles, never. You have to throw them away, or recycle them.
This boggles my mind. Fangamer just restocked their E-Tank mugs. Are merchandisers completely devoid of creativity or thought?
Do want! These look adorable! I am pretty grateful that the classic series even gets merchandise so no complaints from me! ^^ReplyDelete
Proto Man looks pretty damn cool. but Mega Man looks weird though...ReplyDelete
I dunno, guys. I like these things for some reason. Still haven't got Servbot one, but I think it's cool how you can store the body in the head and whatnot, right?ReplyDelete
