Remember the G.I. Joe/Mega Man crossover figure we reported on last week? Well, it appears that Jin Saotome is back at it again, and this time, he's bringing in the Blue Bomber's older bro to join the struggle. But will he side with a real American hero, or assist the evil terrorist organization determined to rule the world? Well, what do you think?
"With the experimental temporal aperture a stable gateway between realities, more beings began coming through. This fellow was designated as a prototype of Rock and was dubbed 'Protoman' by the team. He exhibits the same bizarre ability to create functional weapons and even an impenetrable shield from his limbs. Quiet but cocky in battle, Protoman is a valuable ally when paired with Rock. Something worries the Joes however. If these are the warriors of good in their world...what were they fighting against? "
As for the figure itself, it is described thusly:
"This auction is for a custom made 3 ¾” Protoman with removable helmet, shield, and arm cannon. He has all the regular articulation of a 25th Anniversary GI Joe figure and will fit right in with your current collection. "
You can find the auction here; it, like Mega Man, began at a penny with five dollars for shipping, but has shot up to $20.50. And last time, the Blue Bro shot up to $133.50 before bidding ended.
Or, if you want to make your own, I think he might be made from the current M.A.S.K. Matt Trakker figure from the G.I. Joe 25th anniversary line. But that's only a guess, and only accounts for the base, and maybe the helmet. I have no idea where the rest might have come from.
