Ultimate Megaman collectible at Insomnia

I've always been a fan of the classic NES series Megaman. Last year marked the 25th anniversary of the franchise. In addition to the MMvSF fan licensed game, plushies, a special lanyard/flash drive combo, and other memorabilia, Capcom would go on to release a 10" statue of the blue bomber that sold out rather quickly. It was later revealed that retailers would be receiving a new batch of these statues, but with changes. Fans had complained of the face on the statue, so in the remodeled statue that was redone. Other changes featured a light up base and light up mega buster!

I grabbed one from Insomnia VGC(they still have one in stock by the way) a couple of weeks ago. I couldn't resist once the owner, Chris Unclebach, showed me the USB light up features. Even though it's only 10" tall, the statue is pretty heavy. Along with the base, it has a good heft and size to it. You have the option of either using the USB cord and adapter to plug it directly into a wall socket, or plug the cable into your computer. Either way I think this is a great edition for fans of the the series.
