It Looks Like Those Kidrobot Figures are Actually Happening

If these listings from Entertainment Earth are anything to go by, Kidrobot's 7-inch Mega Man and Proto Man figures aren't dead after all. Not only do we have our first look at the actual figures, we've got a new release window, too: April! Pending official word from Kidrobot, though, we can't say if this is the final date.

In any case, pre-orders are live. Mega Man here, Proto Man here.

Thanks for the tip, Ryan!

Duralumin-Made X and Zero iPhone 6 Cases Teased

GILD Design, a Japanese-based smart phone and motorcycle part manufacturer are looking to produce high-end iPhone 6 cases based on Mega Man X and Zero. The duralumin-made cases are currently up for pre-order from eCapcom for a whopping 12,000 Yen a piece (about $100.31 US).

But wait, there's a bit of a catch here! See, only the case with the most pre-orders will actually be developed. You vote with your pre-order: X here, Zero here. Pre-orders counted to the losing design will not be charged, thankfully. Personally I don't see why they can't produce both. If not now maybe later? I dunno.

If you have the ability to do so, you can pre-order your case of choice in the links above.

X-Plus Toys' Gigantic-Sized Mega Man X Now in Color

A few weeks back we got to see a prototype sculpt for X-Plus Toys' gigantic Mega Man X figure. Today, AmiAmi has posted images of the PVC figure in color... and its up for pre-order, too.

Let there be no mistake: this is the largest X figure ever produced. It stands at 40cm or roughly 15.74 inches. It normally runs for 9,504 Yen but AmiAmi has it down to 7,480 for a limited time (about $62.00). It's expected to ship in late June.
