Had a heck of a day yesterday. It had much alliteration. Cake, candy, cupcakes. Board games, batteries, the Blue Bomber.

That’s the Blue Bomber above. While the character is, of course, normally blue, this is a collector’s edition Amiibo (figures which interact with certain games) of Mega Man, one of Capcom’s most well-known characters. I never played the original platformers (I’m pretty platformer-inept), but I loved the RPG series Battle Network.

We shall see, however, how I fare with the original six games, ’cause they came with this beautiful Amiibo.
