Okay, look: I know some of you guys are sick to death of Mega Man merchandise, and just want a new game. With that said, pre-orders have now opened at BigBadToyStore for a pair of new figures which are at least a bit more on the unique side.
First up, by way of Dr. Wily, is the Mega Man X figure from Bandai's NXEDGE Style line:
What makes this 10cm/3.9" figure stand out is that the detailing on him seems reminiscent, if not directly inspired by the model used in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U, where he appears as a Trophy and a part of Mega Man's Final Smash. In a short span of time, that move has become a nigh-iconic image for the Blue Bomber, and this figure might help bring a physical representation of it on your shelf or desk a little closer to reality.
This X comes with the accessories you see above, including effects for rapid Buster fire, dashing, and a charge shot, as well as a pair of optional interchangeable hands and an array of parts for the translucent stand. BBTS wants $29.99 for this figure, which is due to arrive in August, but you can pre-order it right here, right now.
The other figure comes to us by way of a tip from Acrosurge, who tells me that a 4Inch-Nel version of MegaMan Volnutt is now available to pre-order, too!
While we've seen figures of this Legendary Digger before, they've not only been few and far between, but seldom done as well as this.
He measures the same height as the X figure above, and comes with a helmet and head part, two "flat" hands, his trusty Mega Buster, and a base for displaying. The price tag for this figure might require a little more time excavating ruins than X, as it's $47.99. It's due in August, too, but you can pre-order it now by going here.
Acrosurge adds, "I don't know about you, but I think he could use Data as a bonus figure. Perhaps they'll have Roll or Tron with a Servbot!" One can only hope!
So are you excited to add either of these figures to your collection? Which ones? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
