Get Charged Up - These are the Elec Man Resin Kit Winners!

We had an interesting prize to give away this month - three Elec Man resin kits by Planeswalker. Not exactly a prize aimed at general fans, but great for those do-it-yourselfers who don't mind putting in a bit of effort. Well, without further ado, here are the three comments chosen via random selection lottery: tj4real

the first Megaman game, cutman’s stage! i don’t know, being it the first stage i tried, stage was simple and i found it very fun and found the music to be catchy. :)

I think I’d have to say Tengu Man’s stage in Mega Man 8. The feeling of flying on Rush in that mass open space of clouds just felt extremely cool to me! Heh, I remember as an 11-12 year old kid that I liked to re-imagine Mega Man in epic anime-action-style, doing the same things I was doing in that stage. Well, okay, I -still- do that. lol

Above all, though, the stage was just extremely fun to me in a unique way. I had the most incredibly epic time flying around on Rush without having to worry about an energy meter, and just pelting away at enemies.

My favorite stage is Cold Man from Megaman and Bass due to the great music and nice looking graphics.

Congratulations, you three! Notification emails have already been dispatched, so please get back to us ASAP. We also hope you'll show us your completed statues! And to the rest, thank you for participating! Don't lose heart, we'll have more great goods to give away before you know it!

July Giveaway! Win an Elec Man Resin Kit!

Gotta keep that gratitude train going! Got many more prizes to give away! This time we'll have THREE winners! And what we have to offer is a little bit interesting. Please, it's important you read this post carefully!

We are giving away three Elec Man resin kits by Planeswalker. These were purchased earlier this year during my trip to Wonder Festival. However, these are not normal, take-out-of-the-box-and-admire figures. They require assembly and painting! You will have to sand and smooth off stems from the resin mold, glue the pieces together, and paint the figure yourself. Needless to say, this is not a prize for novices! You should only try to win one if you feel comfortable making it yourself, as it will likely require special glue and paints meant for model kits. Please understand all of this before you enter!

As for how to enter, that's simple enough. Comment on this post stating what is your favorite classic Mega Man stage. You can argue from any standpoint, be it design, gimmicks, music and its boss. Only one comment per person, multi-commenters will be disqualified. Only comment if you intend to win the prize! The winning answers will be randomly selected. In order to win this prize, you must live in a country that can receive mail from Japan. Please ask your parents' permission if you are under 15.

The deadline for commenting is Saturday, July 14th, at the stroke of midnight, PST. Once again, this is a resin kit that requires assembly and painting! Check after the break to see exactly what you're getting. Good luck to you!

Here are the individual pieces that come with the kit.

Here are the pieces by a dollar bill for size comparison.

Rockman X Resin Kits On Sale Now at Tokyo Hunter

For the collectors out there, an interesting bit of info has been passed our way by Ratchphis. Over at Tokyo Hunter, they are currently having their second "Post Wonder Festival Sale" for Winter 2012. And among the items on sale? Resin kits from 2010 based on Rockman X.

The first item is a 1/6 scale color resin kit by Madhands, based on the Iwamoto manga version of X himself. The other comes from D-X, and is based on how Zero appears in Mega Man X4.

Both are marked down from their original 12,000 yen prices to 10,000, but just because they're on sale doesn't necessarily make them cheap; the currency conversion brings the amount to $123.16 U.S. dollars. So unless you're a seriously hardcore collector, you might want to stick with the D-Arts kits from Bandai instead.
