Capcom is putting out a second collection of Mega Man games, this time including Mega Man 7, Mega Man 8, Mega Man 9, and Mega Man 10. It’s coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC on August 8. No word on a 3DS or Switch release, sadly.
Only 90s kids will remember Mega Man’s nightmarish mascot visage.
Stoosh’s Mega Man outfit here cost around $50 and is made mostly from EVA Foam. It is also the best Mega Man cosplay I have ever seen.
On the second day of Toy Fair 2017 my schedule gave to me a whole lot more time to shoot lovely pictures, plus appointments with Hasbro, McFarlane Toys and Playmobile. This one’s got everything from Breath of the Wild Link to tiny Dark Souls board game pieces.
