Punk Drunkers Also Bringing Out Tees, Closer Look at Parka

Japanese skater clothing brand Punk Drunkers isn't through with just the Rockman Parka, it seems. Hyoko Gadgienne reveals a pair of Rockman Tees as well. These will be coming to retail in  early September, and cost ¥5,250 (roughly $67 US). Kinda stylish... I suppose, but the hands sure are weird, and I don't think many people ever played Mega Man with a joypad. And frankly, still a bit too pricy IMO! Hit the break to check out more.

Meanwhile, Gadgienne also shows off some up close shots of the Rockman Parka introduced earlier this week. Hyoko writes that the hoodie seems to have a good feel for cosplaying. As reported before, this hoodie will be coming out in November with a hefty ¥14,700 price tag.

UPDATE: A new photo from Punk Drunkers reveals a little something interesting about the Rockman Parka. Apparently, that strange red bit on the left sleeve is buster related after all. When you pull up the outer sleeve, it becomes a Mega Buster! Just like Mega Man would (sort of) do it! Also have to admit this guy looks pretty silly.

Punk Drunkers and Rockman Unite to Create "Rockman Parka"

This winter, Japanese clothing brand Punk Drunkers wants to make you a "Punk Rockman," and are doing so by releasing this Rockman Parka. Essentially a hoodie, it comes in both classic Blue Bomber blue, as well as a black variety, and will release this October for a pricy ¥14,000 (roughly $179 US). It's a pretty cool design, with the Rockman helmet hood, though the "P-Tanks" are a little funny and I'm not sure I get the red band over the left sleeve (buster opening?).

These Rockman Parkas are available for pre-order on Rakuten for now, and we'll have to see how much more wide spread they get come October. Hopefully the XL fits me; Himeji can get a bit chilly in the winter.

Some More Outstanding Mega Man Apparel

Feeling a little out-of-style, my fellow fans? Feast your eyes on these shirts. I love it when we get some Mega Man themed clothing that's as stylish as these "paint explosion" T-shirts. If you really dig them you can head over to RedBubble for the Mega Man version or the Proto Man version (or both for complete fashion power!). Thanks for the tip, kijan! (via Fashionably Geek)

Capcom Unity Adds Mega Man to the Zazzle Store

If you actually have any money leftover whatsoever after preordering all these Kotobukiya figures and what have you, well, Capcom still wants it. They don't care if you have bills or need bread, they will wring it out of you like dirty water from a rag. But though you'll be left broke and defeated, at least you might have a pretty cool Mega Man shirt to show for it. Less depressing version: Capcom Unity has opened a Mega Man wing in their Zazzle store. Here you can browse designs, and then, perhaps in homage to Mega Man Universe, customize the apparel to your liking. Gotta say I like that "hands around the world" design a bit.

These Rockman Shirts Are So Cool, You'll Probably Never Get One

I think it's awesome to have Mega Man apparel, but all too often it seems the designers just go to Sprites INC, grab some Robot Master sprites and 1Ups and just slap them on, maybe with a silly one-liner. Not too creative, is what I'm getting at. However, Inti Creates has come up with three pretty cool Rockman T-shirt designs. Problem is it's unlikely any of us will ever have one. The shirts are part of a special promotion for the Rockman 10 Image Soundtrack, which released today. The soundtrack comes with an application form, which can be filled out and sent back to Inti Creates. Inti Creates will then draw the applications in a lottery at the end of August, and give out five of each shirt to a total of 15 winners. The shirts are not intended to go on sale.

Maybe if you're real lucky you'll spot one of these shirts on an auction later, and it will just happen to fit you fine. And then maybe you'll also find a legitimate gold Rockman 4 cartridge. Ah well, for now we can only dream, and check out the designs below.

Split Reason's Mega Man Shirt is Now Available

A little while back, we reported on a design submission for a Mega Man shirt on Split Reason that was in the voting process. Well, the results are in and the design received enough votes to be approved! This is one of the few Mega Man shirts out there that actually features original art rather than blown up sprites. Show your Mega Man love to the world (or at least everyone within sight of you) and order this sweet shirt. You can find the order page here for the price of $18.95.

Mega Man shirt up for a vote at Split Reason

Split Reason, an apparel site for "geeks and gamers," as they put it, is letting viewers vote on a Mega Man themed design candidate for potential production. Saying "Happens to the best of us," this design really does capture the feeling we all tend to come across now and again when playing Mega Man games. Considering a lot of Mega Man shirt designs tend to use just sprites, I find this design pretty cool, and I hope it gets made. Take a look at the design below, then head over to Split Reason and make it happen, my MMN minions! News Credit: Main Finger
