Your First Look at D-Arts Ultimate Armor X

[gallery columns="2" ids="21530,21531,21532,21533"] Well that was pretty fast. With Ultimate Armor X announced just earlier this month, Tamashii is already presenting picture of the new figure. Furthermore, they also reveal that the figure is planned to release in August in Japan. That would likely mean an August to September release for North America.

What do you think? The detail and translucent parts look pretty nice, in my opinion! We'll keep you posted as more details become available.

Check Out These Great New Images and Details on D-Arts Bass (NA Release Details Added)

D-Arts Bass is just about ready to go on pre-order in Japan. To celebrate, Ucchy-san has the privilege of showing off some snazzy pictures of the upcoming Bandai figure. You can check out more at Rockman Unity!

As for what to expect with the figure, it will come with two changeable face plates, one changeable wrist part for his right arm and two for the left, a changeable left arm, and his trademark Bass Buster, which goes on the left arm. And as you know, he also comes with a figure of Treble, who is said to be quite large. Bass himself stands a full centimeter taller than the D-Arts Mega Man figure. Curiously, there is no mention of shot effect parts.

D-Arts Bass will be limited to online order via Premium Bandai and e-Capcom in Japan, and won't come to retail. Don't be concerned, however, since he should meet retail sale in the west. This was the same situation with D-Arts Vile.

D-Arts Bass goes on sale in Japan this June. Details on the North American release should come soon, too!

UPDATE: And as we said, Bluefin Tamashii Nations has announced the North American release! It will retail for $43.99 and is expected to come out June/July.

Bandai D-Arts VAVA - Photo Report


Yep, Bandai's D-Arts VAVA figure (Vile to us) is now shipping in Japan. This was a Tamashi Web exclusive here, and while those in North America should be able to buy it via the regular means, there was only a short window of time that people in Japan could order from Bandai directly. Perhaps it will come to stores later, but that's to see for another time.

Above are some pictures I took of the figure I got today, though sadly I don't have a phenomenal camera, and I'm not great at posing figures. However, there's plenty more to see after the break - numerous other photos of fans showing off their VAVA figures in action. These are gathered from 2channel, but you can enjoy them here without having to look at the ads for adult comics. Unless you're into that sort of thing. Then, sorry.

Full Armor X Struts His Stuff

Figure and hobby vendor AmiAmi has a review post up of Bandai's D-Arts Full Armor Rockman X figure. By now you probably know more or less all there is to know about this latest in Bandai's Rockman X series, but the images of the figure are worth seeing. Not only do they demonstrate its great poseability, they make some interesting use of the figure's accessory parts, as well as other figures (like recreating a fateful moment with Zero). I could sure take some pointers myself. I tried making my D-Arts X look cool but he really just looks like his back hurts. Check out more pics here.
