Later this month, the 25th anniversary Mega Man statue is being reissued through Big Bad Toystore and Entertainment Earth for $124.99. No telling how long pre-orders will last so if you missed out the first time, now might be a good idea to reserve yours.
For the uninitiated, the 10-inch statue features USB-powered LED lights on the base, helmet, and Mega Buster. Each one from the Capcom Store were individually numbered as part of its "limited availability." We don't know how limited this reprint is, though. Can't say if these will have numbers or not.

With the unveiling of OVER-2 Spec 2 last week, these were pretty much inevitable. A whole batch of new armors were recently teased during Rockman Unity's "Xover TV" stream. Above is OVER-3 Spec 2; a powered up version of, well, OVER-3.
See the rest of the lot after the jump.

It's a sea of plastic and dazzling colors. This, friends, is but a small morsel of Watchapol's massive Mega Man toy collection. Action figures, gashapons, model kits, board games, playsets. It's ginormous.
There's plenty more to see at Watchapol's Flickr page. The gallery is loaded with over 500 photos of stuff. The photography is neat in its own right, too. Watchapol's recreated scenes from various games, among other things.
Seriously, I am blue with envy here.

Over on Rockman Unity, Ucchy brings us a sneak peek of the Rockman X Sound Box, the all-new Mega Man X soundtrack compilation. Ucchy confirms the 12-disc set will feature a total of 490 pieces from the entire X series, including the likes of Command Mission, Xtreme and Xtreme 2, and Maverick Hunter X. The complete tracklist is now available at e-Capcom.
The e-Capcom page reveals even more music goodness. First, we are now able to confirm that both the SNES and PSX versions of Rockman X3's soundtrack will be featured. Second, Capcom is throwing in tracks from rare Rockman X8 Special Sound CD (according to Ucchy, they had a bit of trouble hunting the source for this guy down!). Lastly, Capcom is packing in unused music from X1 on the 12th disc. It's a single track, but it's bound to be interesting.
The Sound Box is still on track to release December 18th for ¥12,600 (roughly $129 US). Although it's currently a Japanese exclusive, CD Japan is prepping stock for importers. Might be expensive, but it's definitely turning out to be quite the collection!

Owners of the Nintendo 3DS in Japan will be able to download Mega Man Xtreme (otherwise known as Rockman X: Cyber Mission) next week on December 4th. The game will run for the typical Game Boy Color price of ¥600.
This would mark the first time Xtreme has been made available to download. Unfortunately, I wouldn't expect to see this on our shores before the Classic Game Boy titles finish their run. Whenever that will be.
At this rate, though, it seems all but certain Xtreme 2 will be hitting Japan in January. What comes after that? Who knows...

Best of luck to team Mega Man. Enjoy, folks! (thanks for the tip, Raul!)

To celebrate the Everlasting Peace tribute album's release, Capcom Unity is showing off a breakdown of the cover art's conception. Artist rnn takes us through the step by step process, from pencil sketch to ink. It's all quite nice, really.
Everlasting Peace is now available in audio CD and digital. Grab yours from Amazon.
