Hello everyone! After who knows how long, the Figure News Roundup is back and better than ever! This time there’s a diverse offering of figures and more from every corner of the net! Let’s do this.

**Available Now**

Halo BOOMco.

BOOMco. offers several weapons from the Halo series in dart gun form. They’re a fun way to bring the games to life, work into a cosplay, or you can just collect them for display.

Covenant Carbine



Disney Infinity

With the recent cancellation of the Disney Infinity games, there’s no doubt in my mind that the figures will disappear quickly. You’ll see them marked down for cheap in the coming weeks, but after that, they’ll probably pop up on eBay with a hefty price tag. Get them while you can!

Mega Man Helmet

This is a full-size, wearable Mega Man helmet! Yes, I’m serious. Get equipped!

Capcom StoreBigBadToyStoreThinkGeek

Mega Man Mega Buster

This is a full-size replica of the Mega Buster, complete with lights and sounds. I have one, and I love it!




The Great amiibo War may have ended, but if you’re still looking to complete your collection, now’s a good time to pick up where you left off, because a lot of amiibo and amiibo accessories are in stock and pretty cheap!

Proto Man HelmetCapcom Store

Arriving toward the end of this year, Capcom is making a wearable Proto Man helmet! My hope is that someday we’ll also get Mega Man X and Zero helmets.



Mega Man Colored Helmets

Soon you’ll not only be able to wear your Mega Man helmet, but you’ll also be able to swap the default blue for your favorite Robot Master weapons. These are set to release in July.

She costs a pretty penny, but this Samus statue by First4Figures looks amazing!

So why was the Figure News Roundup so quiet? Well, I was doing battle in The Great amiibo War, and working on finishing up my novel, The Rainblade!
