Kotobukiya Zero Headed Stateside

Not surprisingly, Koto US has confirmed a North American release for their 1/10 scale Mega Man Zero model kit. Due out this October in Japan, the localized figure will hit U.S shores in December, reports Game Informer.

Zero is but the fourth in a series of highly articulate Mega Man models from Kotobukiya, currently consisting of classic Mega Man, Roll, and Proto Man. All three figures come with a slew of accessories, and Zero is no exception to this rule. The red rocker is set to be included with a Z-Saber, Z-Knuckle, Buster Gun, and interchangeable faces. An official price tag has not been announced, however, we can expect something within the $25-$30 range.

A handful of online retailers have already begun offering pre-orders for the localized figure, some of which can be found via a quick Froogle search. As we wind down to December, however, more options in terms of availability will become apparent.

Thanks to everyone who submitted the tip!

  3. Meh... I saw this coming. Not excited at all, since with his very lack of weapons and big head. I'll just wait for the guinea pigs to buy it and do the review on YouTube so I can see if he's worth my money. So far as I see, nope!

  5. Yeah right. I'll believe that when I see the other three that were "announced to come stateside in June."

    Well, it's June, where are they?

    $30 and localized shipping.

    That's ALMOST enough to make me want it, if only the design wasn't so damned ugly.

    At least Bandai is making the D-Arts X1 era Zero figure. That's probably the only truly good incarnation of Zero ever.

  9. Well, I preordered from Koto and got nothing. So I was judging from that.

  10. I think it looks great; certainly better than the Zero from Bandai's recent gashapon series. I'm tempted to hold out and see if Bandai makes a D-Arts version, as those things are pretty much the apex of pose-able figures.
