The MML3 movement has kicked off a weapon design contest

If nothing else, you have to admire the dedication of the "100,000 Strong" movement. Ever since last year's cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3, this group has gone through great lengths, spreading the word at New York Comic Con and other venues, in the hopes of convincing Capcom to resume the game's development. The Facebook page is just now approaching 64,000 "likes" -- not quite as fast as the organizers may have hoped -- and there's no guarantee that Capcom will budge even if the elusive 100k number is achieved. Still, considering the topsy-turvy state of the game industry lately, with publishers' testing the limits of consumer goodwill, a fan-driven, long-shot effort is one of the few things we can safely stand behind.

To drum up some enthusiasm and just have a fun ol' time, the movement organizers are holding the "Get a Weapon! The Mega Man Legends Weapon Contest" for Capcom-Unity Devroom members (registrations were never closed, so new members can join at any time). The rules are simple: design a cool, useful, and unique weapon for Mega Man Volnutt's arm and render it in any medium, from 3D modeling to clay to written word. As long as you are over 18 (13 for the US) and living in the US, Canada, or UK, you can submit up to three entries here from now until March 29. The best entries will win either Legends Perler Bead sprites, a copy of the Mega Man Tribute art book, or a spiffy Mega Man Volnutt figurine with the winning weapon as a custom attachment.

A number of ideas have already been submitted, some which I've added to the gallery below. Will this contest turn any heads? Who's to say. At the very least, the Capcom community staff is giving a thumbs-up in approval. It's a fun activity to spread a little joy and awareness. Share the love!
