For you fans of awesome Rockman garage kits and figures you'll probably never be able to buy, things got a lot easier to keep track of with the opening of Hobby Rock. This site lists the various Rockman kits planned to be at the Winter 2012 Wonder Festival, on February 12th, with product pics and expected prices. Some of the figures present, like Yama Tai Koku's Leviathan kit, were released last year. But there are new ones in the works too, such as an Ariga styled Quick Man, a waist-up of Zero styled after the Mythos arranged album, and of course Iwamoto's highly touted Merti kit, also by Yama Tai Koku, which is said will be color cast (and run you ¥10,000!). Don't think I've heard anything before about that color cast Prairie kit either. So much cool stuff!
Incidentally, it appears Yama Tai Koku is working on a Rockman X kit based on Kotobukiya's Zero kit, although I can't say for sure whether this is aimed at being a Wonder Festival product (they'd certainly be busy with everything else).
Man, I really don't know if I'll be able to make to Wonder Festival, but it'd be a shame to miss out on this rare swag. Perhaps now that Hobby Rock has manifested, we should raise our voices if having them bring their wares out of Japan! They are on Twitter!
