The San Diego Comic-Con is once again upon us, taking place from July 18th through 21st next week, and as usual, there are plenty of goodies to be gotten and things to check out, including some Blue Bomber swag from Capcom. Read on for the rundown.
In addition to the SDCC-exclusive hardcover version of MM25: Mega Man and Mega Man X Official Complete Works from UDON Entertainment and a special variant of Archie's Mega Man #24, there is also the much talked-about 10-inch 25th Anniversary Mega Man statue with lights and stand for $100. Plus, the life-size giant version will be on hand for photo ops!
But wait! If you purchase the statue at Comic-Con, then you'll also take home the inflatable Mega Buster (seen above) for free!
The Mega Man cases for the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL will also be available at Capcom's booth, going for $15 and $20, respectively.
Finally, the Mega Man keychain seen at the top of this article is made of stainless steel, is limited to 1,000 pieces, and goes for $10 apiece.
In addition, Archie will be holding their annual "Archie Action Hour: Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man" panel on Sunday at 1pm in Room 28DE:
