They've made one or two scarce special appearances at conventions and such, but now Multiverse Studio announces that their first line of new Mega Man Bobble Budd figures is hitting select online stores:

Just giving a quick look, it seems availability isn't entirely consistent among the listed stores yet, so you may need to check around. Some stores also offer a pack of all four characters. At any rate, which characters would you like to see for a wave two?
This custom Operation: Guts Man Edition is a revamped model of the game originally intended for Iron Man, of all characters, but replaces him with a Jazwares vinyl Guts Man figure, which has been painted up all nice and metallic. You can find more shots of the finished game at Kodykoala's Flickr page.
If I could make one suggestion, it would be altering the game so that it makes this noise when you mess up.

This figure has been repainted in a metallic paint giving it much more shine and a more robotic feel. You can also take closer looks at the custom skeleton structural and notice the high detail that has been put in it. This is truly an amazing work of art.
As for writing this, the figure has three days left and is at a whopping price of $76! Not nearly as much as his Mega Man went for, but we still have three days so who knows how high it will go!
