Convince me not to buy this awesome limited edition Rockman Classics Collection for 3DS

OK, so I'm not as on edge about this upcoming Japanese release as I make it seem in the headline above, but I am really interested in it.

Of course, how could I not be interested in a package that includes such wonderful things as a boxed copy of the 3DS iteration of Rockman Classics Collection (that's the Japanese name for what's known elsewhere as Mega Man Legacy Collection), a 2016 planner with a Rockman--er, Mega Man--cover, a set of five bookmarks and more?

Thankfully, I've already missed the boat on this e-Capcom limited edition, which will the streets of Japan in late February, as far as Play-Asia is concerned. It's still available via (for 11,690 yen, which comes to about $95), though, so my bank account and I aren't out of the woods yet.

Even if it remains available for a while, I have a feeling the most likely course of action for me will be to pre-order a boxed copy of Rockman Classics Collection before the year is up. If any of you are interested in doing the same, by the way, you can do so now at both AmiAmi (where it's being offered for 3,780 yen, or $30) and Play-Asia, where it has a slightly higher price tag of $34.99.

The funny thing about all of this: I'm not exactly the biggest Rockman or Mega Man fan out there. In fact, I'm not sure I've played a game in the series since the 16-bit era. I enjoyed a good number of the 8-bit games back in the day, though, so I've got a hunch that I'll at least get my money's worth out of whichever product I wind up buying.

How about all of you? Are any of you interested enough in Mega Man or Rockman to pick up the e-Capcom LE package or even a loose copy of this Classics Collection?
