Giant 13-Inch Mega Man Figure Due in March


By way of Rockman Unity, X-Plus Toys will be launching a giant classic Mega Man in March, 2015. It's 13-inches!

You can see more images at this post. Even in the early stages it looks promising. The build appears to a lot better than the 25th anniversary statue. It's made of soft plastic, except for the Buster power strip and helmet "ears" (those are transparent plastic). The whole kit and kit and kaboodle will cost 8,424 Yen, which is about $71.00 USD.

More updates as they come.

  1. I'd buy one as long as the price for it isn't outrageous.

  2. This is a nice sculpt. Looks better then the anniversary statue (that I spent too much on) Look @ that face! That smile on Megaman makes all the difference, unlike that static no emotion Anniv. statue... I should get this and put him on that stand instead. (hopefully this won't cost a $100 or more)

  3. That same pose is getting a bit tiresome, but otherwise a good looking item.

    *Opens the door for the sea of anti-figure, pro-new game comments.*

  4. Good lord, another figure/statue? I wouldn't consider this an ANTI figure-statue post, because this one looks outstanding. It's just there's so many a friggin' wallet can handle before it implodes from being so empty...lol

    Looks to be a very good figure though. I'm really hoping it's of a light weight PVC material much like the 25th Anniversary Prize Figures. That might set the cost right at $100 considering its size and their margin of profit.

  5. That sculpt looks miles better than both the Anniversary statue & the recent First4figures statues as well! Just hope it doesn't break the bank too much.

  6. Wow, this actually looks decent.

  7. Rough translation of the post says this is made from "soft plastic," except for the buster parts (the gauge on the side and emitter), along with the "ear" parts on the helmet; it seems those will be transparent, harder plastic. No mention of lights. This appears to be a large vinyl statue.

    The post also says it will be offered at ¥8,424, which is about $71 (US) at the current rate of exchange. I'll bet if this were offered in the US it would be another $99 item.

  10. Many people still don't understand the difference between Capcom making something and Capcom licensing something. 90% of the Rockman/Megaman merch coming out is licensed goods, not made by Capcom. Some company approached Capcom and said "Hey, we'll give you money if you let us use your IP." Then Capcom says, "ok."

  11. Anybody knows if you can order ucchy's hat somewhere online? I don't think it's the same type/quality as the one listed on ebay all over. Am I wrong?
