For the past couple of days, we've been taunted by this ominous armor capsule appearing along side Bandai's D-Arts Mega Man X action figure. What is it exactly? Some kind of fancy display or something else? Tonight, we've got our answer...
As you can see, the capsule does indeed house X's "First Armor" from the original Mega Man X, thus confirming some of our earliest speculations.
Question is, are we looking at an entirely new figure or just the regular ol' D-Arts X wearing interchangeable First Armor parts? Your guess is as good as mine, but one thing is for sure: we aren't supposed to be seeing this. That little sign at the bottom? Yeah, it's meant to deter photography. Whoops!
Hopefully, Bandai will come out with some official news on this soon.
UPDATE: The legitimacy on this one is now in question. Looking back at the original report, we've actually quite a few shots of nothing in the capsule. This new image could be doctored, however, that's not to say this doesn't come from a completely different display at the same event... perhaps one intended for "press only" (hence the 'no photography' warning).
We shall see.
