Seriously, why am I just learning about this?
Tucked away with various other Capcom related toys at this New York Toy Fair, I spotted an extremely detailed Mega Man figure. Didn’t really have a sign and I’m pretty sure their was a flyer that I totally overlooked beside it. It was only after wandering around and chatting with someone else that I realized that I spotted something amazing. It is a prototype for a unique Mega Man X figure from TruForce Collectibles. Developed by one Capcom’s talented artists, this Mega Man X figure features diecast armor, LED functionality in the arm cannon, swappable face & hand parts, customizable effects parts and over 30 points of articulation to help you recreate Mega Man X’s iconic poses. The TruForce Collectibles Kickstarter to help fund the production of their Mega Man X figure only has a few days left and is extremely close to reaching their goal.

About this project
Who are we?
TruForce Collectibles is a brand new toy/action figure manufacturer whose goal is to bring toy collectors from around the world, incredible representations of their favorite characters in action figure format at an affordable price! We want to give fans that ‘wow factor’ they crave while also providing the articulation, detail and craftsmanship fans have come to expect in today’s competitive action figure toy market. As true fans ourselves, we know what it takes to produce a quality collectible…we meticulously pay attention to the nitty gritty details and we don’t settle for anything less than the best.
But we need your help…
We’ve recently acquired the rights from Capcom to create one of video gaming’s most popular and widely recognized characters ever…Mega Man! This is an officially licensed product and we want to bring him to life on your shelf in a style that is fresh and unique.
As you can see in the illustration and official prototype image, X from Mega Man X is still the character we all know and love but with an added stylized flavor we think is really great. Sure there are tons of Mega Man figures on the market today but none quite like this. This rendition of X is beautifully proportioned and features sleek lines throughout to help give the character a more detailed, streamlined, mechanized look.The official color palette features a variety of smooth blues with fluorescent accents and ruby gems in the helmet as well.
Here’s a more detailed list of what this figure will entail:
- Fully poseable with over 30 points of articulation
- Diecast armor parts on the chest, shin and feet
- LED Functionality
- Swappable face/hand parts
- Combinable effects parts
- Base/Support Stand
- 6 inches tall
- PVC, ABS, PA, Diecast materials
UPDATE: This project was FULLY FUNDED on February 24th, 2015!
