Adapted from the First 4 Figures website:
Proto Man is a prototype robot designed and made by Dr. Light, and was also the first robot master ever created. As he was only a prototype design, he ended up developing a life-threatening problem in his energy core, but refused his creator's help, fearing that it would cost him his individuality. After fleeing and wandering the world, he was found almost dead by the evil Dr. Wily, who not only saved his life, but also equipped Proto Man with the Proto Shield: a special armament that can deflect most projectiles. Having initially sworn loyalty to the evil scientist, Proto Man later sided with and now fights alongside Megaman in the battle against evil.
First 4 Figures is proud to reveal Proto Man: the mysterious masked Robot Master who made his debut in Megaman 3 on the Nintendo Entertainment System. Proto Man is shown deflecting enemy fire using his Proto shield, causing the bullets to ricochet off in all directions. At the same time, he charges a retaliatory shot on his arm-mounted Proto Blaster.
Standing upon the Shadow Man stage-inspired base from Megaman 3 where he makes his first appearance, Proto Man stands 13 inches tall, putting him in the same scale as our classic Running Mega Man collectible. Cast in high quality polystone, the entire statue has been hand-painted to exacting standards to capture Proto Man in his element.
