This amazing life-size Mega Man helmet can be yours
The Buster Gun replica is also back in stock at ThinkGeek.
Not all of the wonderful geek merch on display at Comic-Con this week is exclusive to the event.
Such is the case with a life-sized replica of Mega Man’s helmet, the defining characteristic of one of gaming’s longest-running icons. Mega Man is right up there with Mario and Sonic as an old-school gaming legend, only Mega Man’s gear is a lot more cool. And now you can buy it.
Capcom broke the news about the helmet before Comic-Con, but the pre-orders at the Capcom store hadn’t opened up yet. Now they have. The Mega Man helmet will run you $150. You won’t get the centerpiece of your new Mega Man cosplay until this winter, however.
ThinkGeek also has the Mega Man Buster Gun replica in stock. That’ll run you $80.
Not a cheap pair of purchases in total, but once you have the helmet and the gun the rest of the costume is easy, right?
