The Mega Man E-Tank Truck Adventure

mm101Right before Spike’s VGA awards, Capcom handed out E-tank boxes in Los Angeles.

 

The first group arrived around 10AM. An ice cream truck blaring Mega Man music didn’t roll by until 2:30-ish so they were in line for over four hours.

 

Did we mention it was raining? It was, but a little water (OK, a lot of water) and the occasional car splash didn’t stop diehard Mega Man fans from waiting at a bus stop for a mysterious prize.

 

Here’s the truck decked out in Mega Man decals rolling into the parking lot.

Fans and families rushed up to grab E-tanks and energy drinks. Seriously, families! A few groups of parents waiting with their kids collected E-tank boxes of their own. Capcom gave out 200 of these at the event before driving up to the VGAs to handout energy drinks to attendees.
