For the longest time we thought this Mega Man and Rush display was just that – a big 'ol display. A hunk of plastic. It turns out, though, there's more to it than meets the eye: its an interactive kiddie car.
This revelation comes to us via Popstore. The inside is hollowed out to allow two little drivers to steer and peddle. It talks and plays arranged classic series tunes. The eyes and the side of the helmet are little windows. The manufacturer date is unknown but the various Rockman Complete Works suggests it was produced somewhere around 1999 or shortly after.
We don't know how many of these things actually exist. One used to be at Plaza Capcom. Another, perhaps the very same, was recently found BEHEADED at a recycling center in Japan. That said, it's heartening to see one out in the open actually intact. If you could, would you rescue one?
