Here's a real interesting one for you figure and model fans. Perhaps you're familiar with Merti, an original character in Yoshihiro Iwamoto's Rockman X manga series. I never really thought she looked like much of a Rockman-esque character, but then I don't see a lot of guys complaining... Today Iwamoto put up a teaser page on his website, announcing something to do with Merti at next year's winter Wonder Festival, set to occur in February. The details aren't ironed out yet, but Wonder Festival is a well known event for the sale of hand crafted garage kits. The announcement is rather mysterious, though the link title does say "Merti Garage Kit Announcement!"
If you're a fan of Iwamoto's manga, or just like Merti that much, this sounds like something you'd be dying to have. We'll keep you posted on the details.
