Chris Moore writes "When I was a kid, I had a lot of toys. But even with all of them, I always wanted toys that they didn't make. In particular, I remember a Mega Man toy I had based off the Saturday morning cartoon. However, this was also during the time I was playing a lot of the Mega Man X series and I really wanted an X toy decked out in armor. So I painted the figure to look like the base-X model and then created paper armor for him to put on. Creating new toys became a hobby of mine and it seems the new Skylanders has adopted this practice for their latest game."
