    1. Yes. and that's quite the good surprise, as they usually wait for a 15th anniversary before releasing any merch about something.

    2. Dude Starforce toys have been out for a while now. I'm looking at my leo and pegasus figures from takara tomy now.

      Delete
    3. oh, i know - that's why i said ''high quality'' since sentinel falls under the category of official figurines, while takara tomy is more along the lines of action figures. [i have the dragon one myself]

  2. It'd be really cool if the MM Legends figure came with a servbot.

  3. Will be purchasing Volnutt. Even though the Score homemade figure I have is fantastic! Was hoping Figma would do Volnutt, but this is good too.

  4. I am so excited about this! Fingers crossed for a protoman!

  5. Be original Voluntt you bum, quit stealing X's color beam. To be fair tho Geo did steal the green beam from em.

  6. Nice surprise. i was'nt expecting star force due to their policy at capcom about derivated products.
    I think the style of theses sentinels 4inch figure actually fit better on shooting star rockman than on some of the others.

  7. Bleh!
    I'd rather they produce more of the Super Megaman/Cutman 2-pack so I won't have to shill out $200 to those eBay pirates.

    1. You had the option to pre-order direct from http://gentinel.net/en/ did you not?

      Delete
    2. Pre-orders should not be the only way to obtain a toy. My local Game Store cannot order these abd I missed the deadline for all of them. The cost outrageous prices now

      Delete
    3. The Sentinel store don't ship to Europe at all so unless you have someone kind enough to ship it from the U.S. or managed to get a quick pre-order on a slightly overpriced one from BBTS you're pretty much SOL

      Delete
    4. If I'd have known about it while the pre-orders were active, I would have.
      It sickens me that that particular set was so exclusive and the window of opportunity was so small, and yet online stores are crawling with .EXE figures, NYCC .EXE variants and Lan Hikari figures. All of which I wouldn't wipe my backside with.
      But I'm sure Sentinel's next logical step is to make Megaman Zero/ZX figures. And as usual, that'll be the end of the entire line as we know it.
      Y'know, even though American toy companies can't match the craftsmanship of the Japanese, at least they're smart enough to know that consumers want more characters than just variations of Megaman/X/Volnutt/.EXE/Zero/ZX
      Take, for example, these M.U.S.C.L.E. MegaMan figures they announced at NY Toy Fair this weekend:

    5. Agreed. I was hoping because I neglected to pre-order I'd be able to find it somewhere, I look for it every time I go to Akihabara but all I ever find is Classic and .Exe.

      Finally there's an awesome robot master figure and it's after market only...

      Delete
    6. Time will tell, but if demand is such that it warrants a re-print, I would not be surprised if the online exclusives get another batch. But not necessarily a mainstream launch. Lets just hope the series and demand is there. I want that Site style, and that festival variant that I can't get outside of going to a theme park >.<

  8. Oh man, is that a Megamix Cutman? That's rad!

    1. It is, and it's already out but it was an online exclusive. After market only, now.

  9. I'm tearing up at the sight of Star Force Mega Man, I cant believe we did it, I can't believe we got Capcom to do something nice for Star Force in 2017.
    Getting both Volnutt and Geo day one, my 10+ year old Wave Battle DX figures can finally rest!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I knew a Voulnutt 4-inch nel was going to happen eventually but i'm surprised it is happening so soon. Well this changes my action figure plan... Voulnutt is now my TOP priority!

    ReplyDelete
  11. The fact that X comes out two days after my birthday.... Oye. Will require him!!!

    1. Do you know the exact release date of the nel x? I thoyght it was undetermined.

      Delete
  12. Really nice they are making Ryuusei and Dash figures.I hope they make a Zero figure too, I know we have a lot of Zero figures already but I want the 4Inch-Nel version.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh this is fantastic! I love this line!
    If that picture tells me what I think it does, then X is to scale with Original! I was afraid they'd be the exact same size. This looks fantastic.
    I have most of these mint in box, except for Site style and that weird amusement park variant of Rockman.EXE. So tempted to open them.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I"m absolutely getting the starforce one once it comes out. I already have classic mega man, just waiting for march for mega man x to become available

    ReplyDelete
  15. We're finally getting a 4inch-Nel Volnutt! :D

    Geo's inclusion makes me wonder if all that copyright stuff regarding Star Force got sorted out.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Woah... they actually did a Volnutt? I'm quite surprised as stupid Capcom have been dicks on not allowing any company make any Legends related figures, let along Volnutt himself. But something looks off to me? I think its the eyes, they make it look too cartoony. Starforce I'm not surprised as it was like a given as EXE was made so would be Starforce. But I had a feeling they'd be doing Volnutt and Starforce in order to do that Megaman final combo from Smash. But also what annoys me the most of the line is the scale. I know theyre all 4inches as that's the concept of the line but with that it just makes them out of scale with each other. Like X is not at all the same height of classic Megaman. Nither is Volnutt is the same height of X. I might get the Volnutt, but I'm much more happy with my Volnutt kit as its a lot more in scale with my D-Arts X which is accurate.

    1. Why does it have to be Capcom not allowing companies to make Legends figures, what if companies just don't want to make Legends figures?

      Were is the direct proof for this accusation.

      Delete
    2. I think Volnutt's 4-InchNel is based on his Legends 1 design, which had a slightly younger face. I'm kind of glad, because I'm not a fan of his Legends 2 backpack.

      I wonder if it will include extra parts to replace his hair with his helmet? Even if it doesn't, I'm definitely picking it up.

      Delete
    3. Perhaps they will do the same thing with Voulnutt they did with Rockman.EXE. Make a 4inchnel lite figure (Roll?) with accessories.

      Delete
  17. Year after year, Classic and X figures after Classic and X figures I've asked for Volnutt to receive his own, quality figure.
    Guess it's time to put my money where my mouth is.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Sentinel doesn't mess around do they?

    Bye bye, D-Arts line.

    ReplyDelete
  19. the thing i really hate about Sentinel is how they sell their products... i have almost all of them, and their not cheap. they do not even include extra face or hands, however as to Exe toys, it is bundled with Netto and he is not articulated... i mean what the hell is with this line? are they trying to rob us money

    ReplyDelete
  20. I may buy two of this Volnutt figure. One to mess around with and one to keep mint in box FOREVER.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm not a fan of Volnutt's look in general so a figure really isn't appealing, but SF is so close to looking perfectly fine but 2 things kill the design, 1. the stupid 2quater complete helmet and the imo ugly mohawk-ish hair. 2. the damn Omegaxis head buster gun, which they fixed with SF3 but is now showing its no pun intended ugly head again.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm absolutely ecstatic that Volnutt and Geo are finally getting their time in the spotlight. Legends is my favorite subseries and one of my friends is a big Star Force fan.

    Still...

    Vent, Aile, Ashe, and Grey haven't seen any merch. Yes, ZX is the lowest selling division, but it still had two entries. It's odd that they are treated as the black sheep of the series, yet it's one of the four 2D platforming series. Heck, Zero gets more attention, and he's not even a Mega Man! (That's not to say I don't like Zero, I love him, but it seems a bit unfair.)

    1. ZX has been getting dodged nonstop since 2008 unfortunately, I haven't heard of Capcom doing ANYTHING with ZX since Advent, Star Force gets stuff too few and far in between, and this figure is easily the biggest thing we've gotten from it in years, but I do take time to appreciate that the Japanese side of Capcom does show it some love every blue moon or so, whether it's making appearances in new official art, having Sonia and Luna cameo in Sound Rangers, The Special selection CD that not only gave us some select OSTs but also new art featuring the cast post MMSF3 which was heartwarming AF, and even recently putting out 10th anniversary art(Keep in mind ZX turned 10 earlier the same year and nothing was done to mark the occasion.) and having a Luna themed item in the Capcom Bar Valentines menu, I don't feel like they do enough for Star Force, but I can admit that they do a hell of a lot more for it and treat it a lot better than ZX which literally doesn't get anything period.

      I remember the most obscure of events for Mega Man about a year or two ago they did this custom cake thing where you could decal your cake with an image of any specific Mega Man series except ZX, like what the hell why do hide from it?

      I get that it wasn't a smash hit seller, but still you don't have to pretend it's not even real, like they were fun games that brought about some interesting concepts, they just came at a bad time(just like Star Force.)

    2. you're looking to far. there's no merch for ZX because capcom rules is to wait the 15th anniversary before doing anything. Zx is 10 years old.
      That's also why we only got a few MMZ stuff recently, MMZero turned 15 one or two years ago (we'll still get more classic and X as they're the most selling, though).
      that's also why we did not get any starforce before this one (and that's what make the fact that there's a star force figure such a good surpris, as it is a exception to the rule)

    1. is that... positive or negative? I honestly can't tell

    2. i'm sorry i lost all manner of intelligence from the shock alone. yes this is definitely a good thing. i am somewhat surprised they managed to get ALL megamn before they did anyone else (every blue one anyway.) with any luck will get the other cast of character with some extra accessories (protoman with beat anyone. roll and rush. dr. light with tango/auto/eddie) the possibilities are truly endless. as of ths point besides the blast effects the d-arts line has become obsolete (to me.)

  24. Protodude are you considering offering up a giveaway for these? Would love to pitch in on that.

  25. Love the shoutout to Mega Man's Final Smash there. I still want my panda color MegaMan.EXE!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Awesome. I will be buying both. Hopefully we can get more of the robot masters, mavericks and more characters who aren't so common like these two.

    ReplyDelete
  27. you know i think they did Ryuusei too just so that the "final smash" cut can be complete.
    would explain that deviation from the "no merch for Ryuusei" thing.
    whatever the reason, it's great !
