Custom made and packed with awesomeness

There's no shortage of Mega Man figures out there — the popularity of the character both in the west and Japan has ensured a steady flow of cool merchandise — but unsurprisingly most are based on the anime-style iteration of the character, and not the one found on the western boxes.

That's supposed to be Princess Peach? And that toad back there is creepin' me out! Not good looking figurines IMO.

I'd seriously buy these-- especially the Mario ones, and display them with pride.
