NXEDGE Zero Figure Seemingly in Development

My Figure Collection has outed the existence of an NXEDGE Zero figure well ahead of an official announcement from Bandai. Much like NXEDGE Mega Man X (hitting retail soon), Zero will stand at 3.9 inches tall with varying degrees of articulation. The figure will go on sale in September.

More news on this front as it comes. Thanks to Jan for the tip!

That Super Sad X & Zero Statue Arrives in June

First revealed way back in November, Amakuni's X and Zero statue at last has a release window: June, 2017. What's more, pre-orders will be going up on Tuesday, April 25th. This one is expected to be on the pricey side; I hope you've been saving up!

I'll have pre-order links when the time arrives. Stay tuned.

With so many figures and trinkets being announced, it's easy to forget about Bandai's 66 Action Rockman figures. If that's you, duly take note: they're due to ship next week around April 18th.

The New Mega Man Cartoon Will Air on Cartoon Network in 2018 (Update)

It goes without saying I've been keeping a tight lip on a certain leaked trailer from the new Mega Man cartoon. Per the request of Dentsu Entertainment, I did not post it. Not yet, anyway. And while I'm still waiting for the go-ahead to do just that, here's a bit of news to chew on in the meantime: the show will air on Cartoon Network in 2018 in the United States, Dentsu announced. A toyline and a focus on global development will follow suit.

UPDATE: The English press release revealed a new character - Suna Light. Read on for the details and plot synopsis...

New Ciel Wallpaper and Manga from the Rockman Unity App

The Rockman Unity App is doing something a little different this month. Coinciding a brand new mobile wallpaper - featuring Ciel and Passy, no less - you can snag a pair of gag manga. No translation at the moment but that shouldn't take anything away from the charming old-school style art.

Hit the download link here for all three wallpaper sizes! Previous Rockman Unity mobile wallpapers can be found here.

Many thanks to Reploid 21XX for the rip!
