Price and release date is TBA at the moment.
Kotobukiya is known for selling their products not only in Japan, but in the US and Europe, too, so there's a good chance the figure might actually be released elsewhere.

Looks like a fine figure. Looks much like those custom models we have seen before. If the price is right, I will definitely purchase when and if it becomes available.ReplyDelete
Cool. That looks soo much better than the Jazzware Mega Man action figures.ReplyDelete
Hmm, that figure's looking pretty good so far. By the way, Protodude, you spelt "updated" wrong in the title.ReplyDelete
Isn't the buster on his left hand?
I know I'd use my right arm for a buster, though.
if the price is right, some customs will be in order! :DReplyDelete
The words "Kotobukiya" "Rockman" and "Figure" in one sentence make my mouth water.ReplyDelete
Here's hoping they move on to other Rockman series as well.
Most MegaMan depictions show Mega using his left, which is how Inafune came up with it at first. But there is the occasional righty that appears depending on who is making or drawing him.
Woaw nice! I want one ;)ReplyDelete
I just hope us people in england are able to obtain them without going through ebay.
I have a nice collection of megaman stuff but no little statue for it.
Ah, so the double busters theory IS canon! Thanks.
It's about goddamn time we got a high quality MegaMan figure that looks and feels like MEGAMAN.ReplyDelete
OMG Must get him if he isn't too expensive.ReplyDelete
and hope they make the other versions of Rockman, like Zero >w<
Most characters with Busters can use them on either hand or both hands in most series. SS Rockman and Rock Volnut are restricted to their left hands, but can use their right hands for other weapons.ReplyDelete
HyperSonicEXE: I am right handed, so I personally would rather use my left hand for the buster most of the time. If I had to hold on to a ladder or a rope o whatever wile shooting, I trust my right hand to slip up less. Most Japanese are also right handed, so I figure the same logic works there. Nevertheless, I would assume most robots can use either hand no problem.
As for the figure, I certainly hope it gets released quickly and at a nice price. The Kubrick figures put a litte hole in my wallet, and I would expect this figure may be at least as expensive as both of those put together, perhaps more.
Depends on which way he is facing on the screen. When he is going left to right it is on his left hand. However, in most official art it seems to be on the right. The Mega Man 9 start screen has it on the right.
"Spelt" isn't a word.
@Anonymous who isn't me:ReplyDelete
Like I said, for most characters who often use a buster, artwork exists with them using either buster. Most characters have buster technology in both hands. Even Zero whose art is almost entirely on the same hand has been officially stated to be able to use either arm with the buster.
Also, although your comment was not directed at me, I would like to add that I believ spelt is a word. At least according to the dictionary. I don't live in England or America, or even an English speaking country for that matter. But the English dictionary probably isn't lying.
I'd buy one right now even if it isn't painted! I can't wait until this figure is released!ReplyDelete
I thought Japs were left-handed, Anon.ReplyDelete
Hm, I must say, this looks pretty cool. :DReplyDelete
Still not colored. :/ReplyDelete
It's a Prototype, Dude. Rockman looks pretty good, and I'd like to have those cans in the Corner. XD
