Mega Man design changed for the Mega Man TV Show (2017)

A lot better. They seemed to get rid of a lot of the dark blue.

And oh how GAF forgets. Remember how the world rejected this when it was first announced:



And it's the new standard. And it could be worse...



A lot worse....
 
*shrug*

I think the design is passable. But I wonder if the story has received adjustments... that's what I had the problem with. The idea of a schoolboy that is a part-time fighting robot hero does not really reflect what I want in a Mega Man series. I'm sure he'll deal with "teenage issues" and have to keep his identity as Mega Man a secret, and all the other tropes that come with that kind of plot.

People didn't like those turtles? I always thought they captured the turtles essence just fine for that show.

This design is better, but still so busy. Why so much dark blue? Why so much neon? Why so Animu?
 
I don't expect some of you to understand this but all versions of Mega man were designed to fit into what was cool at the moment of their creation. Have a look at what was happening on the TV when X appeared and you see that he blends perfectly with that, the same goes for EXE/Battle Network, those happened when the Pokémon-look got popular. I mean, the Tron-esque lines are kind of hot at the moment. Even DC comics characters got them.

Big dumb heads are never cool
 
I still can't believe how spot-on that Ruby Spears pitch is. The odds of getting such an accurate adaptation even considered and make it that far into production feels incredibly miniscule.
