Mega Man Collectibles That’ll Charge Your Mega-Buster
If Capcom ever had a mascot, Mega Man (or Rock Man, if you prefer) would be a contender for the number one spot. Gliding with his knees, busting faces with his Mega Buster—it’s hard not to root for him. If you or someone you know is as enamored with our bright-blue comrade as we are, we’ve got a list for you—Mega Man gifts and collectibles that only true fans can appreciate
Mega Man 2 | Metal Man Stage, 3D Diorama
Before there was “X,” there was simply, “Mega Man”—more importantly, Mega Man 2. Widely regarded as one of the greatest Mega Man series games, if not, one of the greatest games of all time, this Mega Man 2 3D diorama uniquely pays homage to a Capcom classic. Whether your Mega Fan is a retro gaming die-hard, or someone who is simply in it for the lore, it makes for a one-of-a-kind type of present—and if it’s for you, well, good taste!
With new art-direction comes new swagger—Mega Man 11 can attest to that. And if you want to display said swagger in your place of choosing, a resin statue from the folks at First 4 Figures is sure to turn heads. It stands at about 16 inches tall, so this is no small find—and with the added smoke effects, and battle-damaged armor, this Mega Man statue feels more like a real-life, super-fighting-robot than ever before.
For the Mega Man X fans out there—who can forget such an iconic gaming moment? X can’t seem to get his stuff together, and Zero manages to come and save the day. This shadow box from Pixelvania does a great job keeping the feel from the original SNES’ style, while adding an extra layer of awesome. In case you’re wondering, this piece is about 8 inches by 10 inches by 1.5 inches deep, and comes with a glass pane. Classy!
Can we just take a moment to appreciate how cool this crossover/pose is? While technically only a “Parody Design” of his likeness, any real Mega Man fan can look at this and say, “That’s so cool”—I know I did. A mash-up between Tron’s art style and Mega Man’s epicness. This deserves a “Bravo”.
Look, Mega Man is obviously very cool—we dedicated an entire list to his namesake after all. But there’s something about Zero’s coolness that is magnetic (robot jokes!). Maybe it’s the saber…
Speaking of cool, we found this D-Arts Zero figure that really does our favorite long-haired robot’s likeness justice. It comes with a few interchangeable parts (hands, buster, face, saber), and capable of all kinds of crazy poses, including a pretty sweet Z-Saber action slash pose—perfect for attacking other figures and figurines in your collection (P.S. there’s a black armor version too!)
What’s a Mega Man game if not for power-ups? Let’s be serious, it’s half the reason we all love the games! But on a deeper level, body armor enhancements (read: Ultimate Armor) added a whole new aspect to the Mega Man franchise. In another D-Arts feature, this X figure embodies everything it means to be peak Mega Man. Interchangeable parts and epic poses is the name of the game again here—standing at about 5 inches tall in all his robotic glory.
Mega Man 7 (Intro Stage) Shadow Box | Feat. Dr Wily
Woah! Dr. Wily’s on the loose again! No worries, place him inside of a shadow box, and imprison him on your wall… Aside from an epic intro-stage song, Mega Man 7 also brought to us a perfect blend of old school and new school (for the time, anyway) for the Mega Man series—particularly with Mega Man X having already been released a year earlier.
This time, we have Mega Man, Dr. Light, Rush, and Dr. Wily, in a good ol’ fashioned stare down, straight out of Mega Man 7’s “Intro Stage”. Decently sized, at about 9 inches by 9 inches, and officially licensed by Capcom itself (if that type of stuff matters to you!).
For all of the Mega Man old-heads out there, the original Mega Man animated series by Hiroyuki Yokoyama is a surefire way to win over long-time fans.
Originally aired way back in 1994, the Japanese-American series ran for a little under 2 years, but is still held in high regard for many fans of the Blue Bomber. If you’re looking for true 90’s television, my do we ever have it for you here.
Worth it for the nostalgia. And worth it in general, quite frankly.
For the new school Mega Man generations, the Battle Network series has given a unique spin to our iconic friend. An RPG, with totally revamped combat—compared to what we’ve come to expect from previous Mega Man games—there is very much a place for both these Navis in the context of gift-giving.
Good Smile, Pose-able Nendodroid Mega Man X Figure
In an almost-Chibi like existence, this Mega Man X figure from Good Smile makes X’s helmet all the more captivating. Just look at the size of it! The perfect balance between “cute” and “better run for your robot life,” you can swap faces, change poses, pick X-Buster blasts—just about as cool as it gets.
You’ll notice that the previous entry is actually a lead in to this one—an already very fun action figure from Good Smile just became 10x more enticing, thanks to Rabbit Ride Armor. An iconic, and largely-overpowered armor suit that made you realize that there are levels to this robot stuff. A fully pose-able Rabbit Ride for your fully pose-able Mega Man X—doesn’t get much more display-worthy than that!
Look, it isn’t an entire helmet, but it’s a pretty decent compromise—officially licensed Mega Man headphones for you to listen to Armored Armadillo stage-music all day long. Better yet, fire up your Nintendo Switch or emulator, and listen to Mega Man stage-music the way it’s supposed to be listened to.
On a more serious note, this can absolutely serve as a “never opening this” collector’s item as well. Not only is it limited edition, it’s got the forever-sacred Capcom seal of approval as well!
Mega Man as he was originally intended to be—pixelated, jumping, and blue. There isn’t much to be said about this shirt that hasn’t already been said about the series. The jumping motion might not make much anatomical sense, but it’s all the more iconic for retro Mega Man fans everywhere because of it.
Good Smile | Mega Man X: Zero Nendoroid Action Figure
Another great piece from the folks at Good Smile— Nendoroid Zero, and all of his elegant, flowy hair. Like the other Good Smile figures, this one lets you change parts like the Z saber, expression and hands. For die-hard Zero fans, this one seems like a no-brainer.
It’s fair to assume you’re a Gamer if you’re a Mega Man fan, at least in some capacity. This mouse pad has a pretty cool, stylistic rendering of Mega Man, and would fit perfectly with any PC setup. Just make sure you try and have some other colors that match, but ultimately, the mere likeness of one of Capcom’s finest may be all that is needed—color coordination be damned!
Good Smile, Roll Nendoroid Action Figure (Mega Man 11) | feat. Rush
A tag-team appearance from two of the more overlooked characters to grace the Mega Man series. Another Good Smile creation, this time featuring Roll and one of the most adorable renditions of Rush this side of Dr. Light’s creativity. Changeable faces, cleaning supplies, and an E-tank, you can give Roll her own unique pose-able role to assume—no pun intended.
If you like Roll, and giant figurines, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s a foot-tall full color, PVC piece from X-Plus. A foot is pretty tall for figures—not to mention she’s leaning—so its mass is a good bit bigger. What we’re trying to say is that Roll will likely tower over the rest of your collection. And let’s be real for a second, is there really anything wrong with that?
Good Smile, Mega Man (Classic) Nendoroid Action Figure
Yet another Good Smile creation, this time with Classic Mega Man style. Perfectly pose-able, with all the interchangeable parts you’d expect from a Good Smile figure—different blasts, faces, and hands. You can even recreate the iconic classic Mega Man jumping pose is you so choose (we recommend it, absolutely).
