Hedgehog Man comes to us from the mind of Aaron Riddle, who got in touch with me to get his 2D rodent-bot off the page and into real space. His design looks to have been inspired by a few different Mega Man robot masters, predominantly Needle Man. The spikes were tricky, I ended up casting them so that I could get three seperate sizes and just cast a whole bunch of ‘em and affixed them after the main sculpt was done. Maybe he’ll make it into Mega Man 11, if Capcom doesn’t throw Mega Man off a bridge or something this year!
