San Diego Comic-Con kicks off next week, and UDON will be there with a mountain of convention-exclusive tomes. Being the guy I am, I only have eyes for MM25: Mega Man & Mega Man X Official Complete Works, the 432-page follow-up to the art books previously released to celebrate the Blue Bomber's 20th birthday. While the regular riffraff can purchase a limp paperback version of MM25 come September, con attendees can snag this laser foil beauty.
I've added some glamor shots to the gallery -- I'm loving the schematic that appears on beneath the dust jacket. Also included are a few sample pages, most which we've already shared on Destructoid before. But only now am I taking a close look at these pages and noticing the original designs for the Mega Man 9 Robot Masters. Ocean Man instead of Splash Woman? Plasma Man instead of Plug Man? Honey Woman instead of Hornet Man? It's Bizarro World, I tell ya!
The cost of such hardcover luxury is an insane $100, and any leftover copies will become available on UDON's online store. I'm afraid I'll have to cut out breakfast items from my shopping list for a couple of weeks.
