Let us know what you guys think of the different variations shown here. Do you think they should have gone with a different Mega Man?

They picked the right one. I don't play that crappy game, but I would main this character if I played it.

Images 8 and 6 look quite interesting. Image 8 makes me think of Cyclops fusing with Kamina/Shimon.

I'm digging #8 a lot. I do like the one they put in the game though, it fits Ono's style of character wackiness.

Image 8 is the best looking one, though they all look somewhat weird. The one they went with got the desired effect, I believe.

They should have put Roll in the game as Mega Man's partner and Dig Dug in as Pac-Man's partner.

Emoga Man should've been the guy.

6 or 8 would have been great!

#6 and #8 looks like they could fit in with MVC3 quite well.

#1 fits in with SFXT perfectly... sloppy, just like the game.

Capcom was thinking about the other concepts but then they realized that they could use E.Honda's SF4 model on a fat Megaman.

Roll got some fat thighs, been hanging out with Chun Li lol.
Image 8 looks the best;it feels like a mix between Proto Man and Mega Man EXE. Image 7 is obviously Mega Man classic with a touch of box art mega man design, but also instead of a kid's body, it is a man's body form.

Image 6 is the second best, that one feels like Mega Man X mixed with box art mega man. The kid on Image 5 is the most awkward, but design wise is still better than what they picked. However it doesn't work because it just doesn't feel like it should be Mega Man.

Obviously they were looking for a comical looking Mega Man because the last three feel much more serious and heroic, so the final design definitely fits as the most comical Mega Man.

It wouldn't surprise me if they used image 7 as a DLC costume for Mega Man in SFxT.

AWWWW man why didn't they go with hipster man instead!!!

Number 5's rocking DAT EMO MEGA MAN!

#14
shadowassault said on April 9, 2012 at 12:36 p.m.

Beat the dead dog with a stick some more......ah well my hopes gave up long ago so this is just meh to me now. Though I do like 5-8 they were great

#15
MINI said on April 9, 2012 at 12:46 p.m.

Number 6!

Capcom why and how could you pick that fat F**K over any of these great concepts?! >.<

#16
Whengameswerefun said on April 9, 2012 at 12:50 p.m.

Why not make a regular art mega man lol

#17
Whengameswerefun said on April 9, 2012 at 12:51 p.m.

#1 lol you wouldnt main him long one combo from most cast and hes dead practically.

#18
bullitt23 said on April 9, 2012 at 12:53 p.m.

6 is the best one. 8 looks like some wannabe judge dredd.

#19
Jake_da_Thrilla said on April 9, 2012 at 12:58 p.m.

I'm personally digging the 7th version.

#20
shinshom said on April 9, 2012 at 1:03 p.m.

Roll from 6 is really cool =/

#21
cadnexus said on April 9, 2012 at 1:09 p.m.

@19 How does 8 look like Judge Dredd? The helmet or design is not even close, if anything it looks better than Judge Dredd. Dredd's design is just decent.

The body shape looks good for number 7, but the design...it just feels too bland for me. Number 8 feels like Mega Man for the Now- a more interesting and updated look.

#22
clumsywolves said on April 9, 2012 at 1:09 p.m.

the one they picked is great

#23
Q80Warlock said on April 9, 2012 at 1:11 p.m.

Version 6 and 8 looked really great. But Megaman the Wimp won the battle !

#24
Getdownbrown83 said on April 9, 2012 at 1:34 p.m.

I always like me some concept art

#25
Aluppoj said on April 9, 2012 at 1:37 p.m.

Desk should do a combo vid for Mega. He can do some cool Sub-Zero esq stuff with his freeze gun.

I like the fatso version.

#26
JiCi said on April 9, 2012 at 1:51 p.m.

Hold on... Roll was supposed to be playable like in TvC ???
Ok, this is getting worse by the minute, because the way I see this, Roll and probably Ms. Pac-Man could have been playable.

Concepts 6, 7 and 8 should have been chosen instead of fat MM... the character didn't need to further get his face in the mud.

halo said on April 9, 2012 at 1:56 p.m.

All those sketches look daft to me tbh

#28
bullitt23 said on April 9, 2012 at 1:58 p.m.

@22 The colour scheme, futuristic and over muscular figure/suit, the helmet shade etc its very judge dredd to me atleast.
Its common knowledge capcom's designers and even other game developers draw inspiration from real life, movies, tv programmes, and other media to create basic designs of characters. I cannot help but see the same process on that design.

#29
MonkeyCha0s said on April 9, 2012 at 2:09 p.m.

@27 dude, NO ONE said that. one thing is to assume but to assume and then get angry as if you somehow confirmed your own question as fact is ridiculous.

#30
soggytoast said on April 9, 2012 at 2:54 p.m.

Kinda wish we got a busty, anatomically correct Roll in this game. Although the way she's portrayed in those pictures it's kinda weird because she's supposed to be Mega Man's sister...

#31
danny2times said on April 9, 2012 at 2:58 p.m.

I line numeral 7 us hunky! Ohh sue humpy!

#32
LK said on April 9, 2012 at 3 p.m.

What Americans would consider emo-mega man (#5), dudes sporting this style in Japan would actually act rather cheerful, kind of like your skaters or surfers in America.

#33
LuckyFighter said on April 9, 2012 at 3:07 p.m.

The pic #6 or pic #8 or will be perfect for the sfxt, only if the Capcom take this game serious. @ #5 Smart Idea.

#34
BumblebeeCody said on April 9, 2012 at 5:37 p.m.

????? He looks like E.Honda WTF

#35
KlassifiedENT said on April 9, 2012 at 5:55 p.m.

I'm really hurt to see that they had better versions to choose from. Number 6 for MM and Roll was awesome. This reminds me of the Chevy Truck Month commercial. Lol

#36
Mako said on April 9, 2012 at 6:51 p.m.

Am I the only one that finds #3 and #7 Roll, real sexy!

#37
imagen said on April 9, 2012 at 9:06 p.m.

fat slob megaman is lame as balls.

#38
LongSky said on April 9, 2012 at 11:11 p.m.

8 seems to bulky to me for a Megaman. Tune down the mass and then hell yeah. I like 6 more.
And is it me or does 5 look like an older version of Lan Hikari from the Battle Network series?

#39
Hotdiddykong said on April 9, 2012 at 11:24 p.m.

Damn, they all look awesome, i guess the concept was based upon what happened to Bad Box Art Megaman if he was actually real, and the result is he'd get Fat. Seems Realistic.

Megaman is like Honda? Rolento used Bison's face whats your point?

sarif2soon said on April 10, 2012 at 3:12 a.m.

TAKE THAT AMERCIAN ARTISTS!

#41
DunnDeal said on April 10, 2012 at 6:12 a.m.

And they decided to go with the fatass?

#42
ShinsokuHitokiri said on April 10, 2012 at 6:31 a.m.

They should have gone whit Megaman X. But #6 also looks awsome.

#43
ultrapowerlevel said on April 10, 2012 at 7:14 a.m.

Clearly Mega Man fan trolling here. They intentionally picked the worst design. First its BBA Mega Man and next they pick the worst design for him. To me Mega Man BBA will always be pathetic but If I were to be forced into putting him.... I would have put in 6 or 8. They look atleast a bit animish and have a buster and arn't that fat like hamburger version we have.

#44
ibLeo said on April 10, 2012 at 7:41 a.m.

lol

This wasn't Capcom trying to screw Megaman over

Inafune himself was gonna include BBA Megaman in Megaman Universe before he left Capcom

This was Capcom taking a funny idea Inafune had wanted to use, and rolling with it

#45
Darkyellow said on April 10, 2012 at 11:14 a.m.

@Hotdiddykong

That Capcom took the economical route. I am aware that Rolento's face is Bison's, that Ogre uses Seth's model, and that a vast majority of the Tekken characters have normals that are flat-out ripped from other SF4 characters. Just saying that it's pretty obvious which one you would choose if you wanted to save money.

#46
JiCi said on April 10, 2012 at 12:13 p.m.

@30

While nothing was directly said, seeing Roll with a broom is a direct allusion to Mega man Powered Up and Tatsunoko vs Capcom, both which she was playable.

#47
ibLeo said on April 11, 2012 at 3:29 a.m.

No, Roll was a housekeeper robot and from the very beginning was depicted in the games with a broom.

#48
Ex_Ein said on April 11, 2012 at 6:40 p.m.

Hoodie megaman would have been awesome
The buff ones are kinda funny with how ridiculous they look IMO
DESTORYMAN MEGAMAN(the one with the red visor and blondish hair peaking out the bottom of the helmet) WOULD HAVE MADE ME JIZZ MY PANTS!
Like how they went back and forth on having gun or arm canon
