This may come as no surprise to anyone. After all, Bandai's original Zero figure was given the mark "1st ver", so it seemed almost inevitable a figure of Zero's updated look would come about. And inevitable strikes today.
On Rockman Unity, Ucchy-san is teasing the above photos of a Zero prototype figure, clad in those all-too-recognizable shoulder pads. Like with the Vile figure, little is known for now (as it's still just a prototype), but more details are expected to come out from the Tamashii Nation 2011 event in Akihabara this weekend. I may just have to drop by and bug Ucchy-san himself about it!
Thanks for the tip, Auto!
