BanDai Megaman Trading Figures Jumping MegamanTrading figures, like trading cards, are a dangerous habit. Much like I've never learned if it's "Mega Man" or "Megaman," I've never learned to not go overboard on these things-- so I'm glad my pal Dat got me a Jumping Megaman and a few others as a gift, courtesy the damaged packaging. (Presented here for reference purposes. Yes, I realize it sucks and is ripped or smashed.)

BanDai Megaman Trading Figures Jumping MegamanThe figure is sculpted to look sort of "classic," which is to say, cute. He's got a big happy expression on his face, his suit is lacking in most detail, and the hands are quite simple in their design. His helmet has the basic classic Rockman (or Mega Man, or whatever) elements with the light blue crest and earmuffs, with an added surprise-- there are red "rockets" under each of his feet. Nice touch!

BanDai Megaman Trading Figures Jumping MegamanThere is no real articulation to speak of, the head appears to be a separate piece and it may swivel but the plastic's feel makes me think I might accidentally twist it off, and I'd rather not make that mistake again. (Granted, every time I made the mistake, it was with an actual jointed figure that just broke. But that's what happens.) This figure is essentially a great mini-statue for your desk, not much of a toy but certainly a nice addition for any PVC collector or anyone that needs something to bring to work that isn't too rare, too expensive, or too fun. I like the look of this nifty import, but I can't play with it... but there are other figures for those purposes. Heck, Toy Biz did a decent one for Marvel vs. Capcom, and there are several different figures from any of a number of Japanese manufacturers. And Jazwares.

At about 4-inches tall from the bottom of the stand to the top of the helmet, it's a decent figure for the money. The paint applications aren't perfect, but for the price I don't expect the world. It's a nifty video game collectible and I dig the NES-style here. Well, relatively NES-style. It's old school without being 8-bit, and I appreciate that-- I'd love to see other games done in a similar style, particularly Konami games or Blaster Master. Good stuff if you can get it, but if you have a Mega Man toy you're happy with you probably don't need this one too. However if this line were to continue and they did all the various Robot Masters from the NES series, I'd say it was the greatest series ever and you totally need them all. Funny how that works, isn't it?
