For many American gamers, their first introduction to Capcom’s onetime classic mascot Mega Man wasn’t as an adorable blue robot, but rather a hideous overweight man on the original game’s infamous and inexplicable North American box art. Thanks to the power of irony, there’s now a ton of nostalgia for this so-called “Bad Box Art Mega Man,” and an amateur toymaker has taken that appreciation to the next level with this custom Mega Man action figure that’s as immaculate as it is ugly.

User momoji posted several pictures of the creation on the Thailand custom toy website MODxTOY. Here you’ll find Mega Man standing tall in some heroic battle poses, hanging out with his more recognizable counterparts, and doing who knows what with Woody from Toy Story. These pictures also show off just how detailed the figure is from his big fat belly to his confused homely face. He looks a lot more impressive than the art that inspired him, that’s for sure.

However, many Mega Man fans still have a hard time finding the humor in this dark stain on the franchise’s history. The action figure is specifically modeled after the version of Bad Box Art Mega Man that appeared as a playable fighter in 2012’s Street Fighter x Tekken. Considering that was around the time Capcom had been cancelling Mega Man projects left and right, causing series creator Keiji Inafune to leave the company and create his own heavily Mega Man-inspired game Mighty No. 9, Blue Bomber devotees saw the joke at their expense as yet another slap in the face.

But Capcom’s mishandling of Mega Man as a whole can hardly be blamed on one goofy character design. After all, Bad Box Art Mega Man was also slated to appear in one of Inafune’s own cancelled projects, Mega Man Universe. So let’s just marvel at this action figure for what it is, an awesome version of a terrible thing.
