Bandai D-Arts Mega Man X and the Metallic Armor

Good news, everyone!

We have received word from Adam Newman of Bandai regarding a very special D-Arts Mega Man X action figure which will be available at this year's San Diego Comic Con International.

Bluefin and Tamashii Nations, the premium collector's label of Bandai Japan, have teamed up to announce that the D-Arts Mega Man X Metallic Version will be available exclusively to those attending the 2011 SDCC.

"This high-precision action figure will feature shiny blue-metallic coloring, superior articulation, as well as X-Buster blast and rotating triple-shot effect parts," notes the press release. In addition, the figure includes two interchangeable face parts, as well as additional interchangeable hand and arm parts.

As with many other SDCC exclusives, however, this 12.5cm (about 5 inches) figure won't come cheap. If you line up at the show, you're going to need about $45 (and maybe tax) on hand.

Side note: If only there was a Vile figure along with it, then perhaps I could have called the post "Mister Vile and the Metallic Armor." But then I have to wonder how many of you would have gotten it...
