Kotobukiya Blues Detailed - Last Kit for Now

So, you know how I said yesterday that Kotobukiya's Blues model kit would be releasing pretty soon in Japan? Well evidently, it already has in Hong Kong! And our good friend Auto has provided some details and pictures for what you can expect when you get yours.

First and foremost, however, it seems that Blues is the end of Kotobukiya's Rockman line for the time being. In the space on the box where future figures are advertised, Blues' box only remarks that Rockman and Roll are also on sale. So, if you've been holding out for a Forte or, I dunno, Bubbleman model kit, there's no confirmation for you. Bandai will have the spotlight for the foreseeable future.

Next is a detail that I'm sure will be disappointing for some. The kit has no eye pieces, meaning that your dreams of displaying a visorless Blues will be on hold (unless you're already with him having a creepy, eyeless face). Additional dismay may come from Blues having no charged shot piece like Rockman does, and his E Can is molded in gray, likely because Blues has no native blue parts (though I suppose, technically, an E Can would be red and gray for him in the game, no?).

But other than that, it appears to be everything you've come to expect if you've gotten your hands on Kotobukiya's other Rockman model kits so far. So, some disappointment aside, it's still a nice, high quality kit.

Hit the break for all the images. Tons of thanks, Auto!
