As two heroes who live to fight robots built by bald, mustachioed mad scientists, Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man are hardly an odd couple in their respective battles for the fate of their worlds. Sure, they've had some differences in their current "When Worlds Collide" Archie Comics crossover spanning the ongoing Sonic and Mega Man titles, but they've been able to work as a solid team so far. Unfortunately, so have their foes. In this week's Mega Man #26 by Ian Flynn, Tracy Yardley!, Terry Austin, Jack Morelli, Thomas Mason and cover artist Patrick "SPAZ" Spaziante, the blue duo comes face to face with not one, but two Shadow Men to fight. It's just what happens when roboticizers are running wild and Shadow the Hedgehog winds up getting sucked into the fray.

Just in time for the Mega Man's (or Rockman, as he's known in Japan) 25th anniversary, Bandai is bringing the classic version of the hero, his robo dog Rush and a Metall/Met into its D-Arts line of articulated action figures. Set for release in Japan in early 2013, the figure will stand 105 mm (a little more than four inches)
