The past few years we have seen a resurgence of toys and statues based off some classic video games from the 80’s and 90’s. The Sen-ti-nel 4 inch Classic Megaman figure is beyond awesome. Continue reading “Sen-ti-nel Classic Megaman is a Big Deal in a Small Package” »
Capcom’s dedicated Street Fighter V panel was another exercise in fan hype and appreciation for the venerable brand. They filled the hour with the game’s latest updates, upcoming product in conjunction with the game’s release, and even a mini NYCC battle Royale for a chance to win a custom PS4.
