ThinkGeek teams up with Capcom once again to throw Mega Man fans a bone in the form of an officially licensed hoodie. The hood has helmet details sewn on, while the left arm sleeve has the Mega Blaster’s lights printed on it.
Thanks to Capcom you won’t have to sneak into Storm Eagle’s stage to upgrade your headgear. Its upcoming life-size Mega Man helmet is made of ABS plastic, has light up parts and has a “unique clamshell hinge” that lets the front and back halves split open to make the helmet easier to wear.
Capcom already sells a plush replica of Mega Man’s Mega Buster. But if you want something more interactive, watch out for ThinkGeek’s officially licensed Mega Buster replica. You can wear it and trigger light effects as well as the blaster sound effects from the NES games.
XD Threads remixed the album cover from Daft Punk’s latest album Random Access Memories to create this t-shirt design featuring Proto Man and his harder, better, faster and stronger descendant Mega Man.
I’m sure Mega Man fans already know – and pre-ordered – about the old school Mega Man statue that Capcom unveiled for the Blue Bomber’s 25th anniversary. But if you’d rather be Mega Man, go grab Capcom Japan’s limited edition Mega Buster and Helmet set.
Mega Man fans rejoice! Or not. Footage of Mega Man 10, the upcoming retro-sequel taken at the recently concluded CES 2010 has popped up on the internets. But will you, the theoretical hardcore gamer, be insulted by the presence of an Easy mode in the latest of Masochist Man Mega Man’s adventures?
