Rockman Figures. Rock “Mega Man”, known as Rockman (Japanese: ロックマン) in Japan, is the title character and the protagonist of the Mega Man series by Capcom. The character was created by Akira Kitamura for the first Mega Man game released in 1987, with artist Keiji Inafune providing detailed character artwork based on Kitamura’s pixel art design.
Since then, Mega Man has become one of Capcom’s mascots, one of the company’s primary original characters, and continues to be one of the video game industry’s most recognizable icons. Having appeared on many consoles since the Nintendo Entertainment System, Mega Man has had a wide gaming audience, and his games continue to evolve with the ever-changing hardware demands of modern gaming systems. Mega Man’s fictional universe can be divided into seven categories, each featuring different variations and incarnations of a robot boy hero. Although “Mega Man”, or “Rockman”, is usually the name used to describe only the original Mega Man from the classic series, it can also be used less specifically to describe the Mega Man series of fictional works, or the group of adherently named main characters within.
Mega Man’s role in the original story was to be an assistant to his creator Dr. Light, then when Light’s colleague goes mad, Dr Light repurposes Mega Man to battle the mad scientist Dr. Wily and his ever-growing army of robots, and stop them from taking over the planet by using their own special abilities against them. Utilizing his Mega Buster arm cannon and his ability to copy the special weapons of the boss robots he defeats, Mega Man must travel the world and traverse harsh environments in order to bring Wily’s menace to an end. With the help of his creator Dr. Light and his assorted cybernetic companions, Mega Man’s eventual goal is to one day achieve “everlasting peace” for both humans and robots.
Awesome little retro machines.
