Dimension Studios Mega Man Zero Model Kit Gets Final Images and Release Date


Teased back in September 2019, we at last have new details and images of the finalized Dimension Studios Zero Model Kit. You can find price, release date and images of the kit in color below!


According to the publisher, the model kit will be out on June 15th in the licensed territories. (China, Hong Kong and Taiwan) But fear not; you will be able to buy it through Play-Asia for $42/40€. It's expected to ship on June 30th.

The kit measures 17cm (roughly 6.70 inches). It features a high degree of articulation and is made from ABS plastic. As you can see in the images below, the model kit comes with the Z-Saber, Buster Shot, Triple Lance, Shield Boomerang and Z-Knuckle parts, plus several different hands and additional face. A base is also included to pose the kit as you wish.

  1. It looks aight. Just not really into model kits, personally.

    1. That's like going to critique artwork and you could care less about it. What is your critique really worth at that point?

  2. It needs more bulk but it's cute. BTW will people just admit that Classic, X, Zero(MMX) sometimes Roll sometimes Vile and Zero(MMZ) are clearly the popular characters groups are clearly willing to risk making generally and it is not that MMZ "kills the lines"?

    1. People just don't understand how product development and sales work.

      Nobody is going to jump-in to making characters which appear one time in one game in the middle of a series. The focus will always start with the main characters, and then will branch out from there. Making one-off characters (robot masters, Alia, etc.) is specifically limiting sales right out of the gate. If we ever get robot masters: they're likely going to be pack-ins with main characters, or cheaply-manufactured sets. People's best bet for the bit characters are custom figures, or small-batch, unlicensed sculpts from a trade show like Hobby Rock or Wonder Fest.

      I like this model, and I ordered one because I love this iteration of Zero, and I love building model kits.

    2. Rockman Zero is very popular. He had four games that were just about him and the ZX series. I didn't play those but I know they were popular as well.
      That being said, I'd like to see some bosses from the X series turned into kits.

  3. Hopefully BBTS will carry this, I don't really wanna pay the PlayAsia shipping, it kills the deal. But this model is reasonably priced and looks great.

    1. On the remote chance that BBTS carries this: I'll wager their base price will be at least as much as PlayAsia after shipping, if not more. I only ever find BBTS has decent prices on domestic products. Kotobukiya Mega Man kits from BBTS are comparably-priced to PlayAsia, but Kotobukiya also has a US satellite from which BBTS orders their product. Eastern Model probably doesn't have a US branch.

      I think Eastern Model is out of China, and they are a pretty small company whose (few) products I've only seen on the Show.Z store and PlayAsia.

      I honestly doubt BBTS will carry this because it's such a niche product from a small and obscure foreign company. $70 shipped to me from PlayAsia; I doubt BBTS could beat that, and it would probably be 30-60+ days behind PlayAsia's shipments.

    2. Wow, I just checked Play Asia shipping.....$132 is my only option for Express shipping 😱

    3. it has a Capcom Asia License. Chances are Kotobukiya kits have a NA Capcom license, that means you get Kotobukiya and BBTS will not carry it/

  4. I wonder if this is more solid than the Kotobukiya kit, what with the inner frame and all.

    1. Maybe... smaller parts are also more fragile...
      Tiny parts have a tendency to pop off easier and are easier to lose.

    2. I glued all the parts which don't move on the Kotobukiya model, and it's plenty solid.

      However, I'll bet that this is more solid due to the inner frame, since that enables the designers to separate sculpt from articulation a little more.

  5. Looks really good, though I kind've wish the Chain and Recoil Rods were included, I don't know why companies who do this version of Zero always leave those weapons out.

  6. Is the pre painted? I really like the looks of this kit especially with the inner skeleton

  7. Nice looking, but I think the SH Figuarts one is still the best. Not to mention more accurate.

    1. I've always preferred the Kotobukiya sculpt.
      SH Figuarts looks a little to lanky to me, but you can't beat its articulation.

  8. Hmmm.... I am intrigued by all the little details around it's body and inner frame. But what matters to me is scale. If it's the same size as Kotobukiya Zero then I will pass on it. But if it's the same size as the SH Figuarts Zero then I wouldn't mind purchasing it.
