X has an Armor to Ride, and he don’t care.Read More
I certainly didn't make it to Comic Con this year - not a very good swimmer. But Daniel, an old high school pal of mine, did make his way over. I didn't want to burden him too much, but I asked him to take pictures of any Mega Man stuff he happened across. So, I'm just sharing with you what he got: sweet cosplays, a special edition comic, and of course, those sweet, sweet D-Arts concepts. You better be bugging Tamashii Nations to make those!
Thanks for your work, Dan! Glad you had fun!
First off, the marker in this photo indicates the mysterious Zero figure is indeed a "Comic Ver." figure based on Yoshihiro Iwamoto's Rockman X manga. What isn't known is if this figure will also be going on sale at the vent, though I imagine it will be. Iwamoto even did a nice promotional art for the exhibit.
What's more striking, however, is the strange hunk of plastic sitting behind Vile. Is that a... Ride Armor? Ride Armors haven't been unfamiliar to Bandai in the past. However, in promotional displays for past D-Arts products, there have been items like Metools and upgrade capsules that never made it to retail. So awesome as the Ride Armor might be, it's hard to say if it reflects an upcoming product right now.
