For the past couple of days, we've been taunted by this ominous armor capsule appearing along side Bandai's D-Arts Mega Man X action figure. What is it exactly? Some kind of fancy display or something else? Tonight, we've got our answer...
As you can see, the capsule does indeed house X's "First Armor" from the original Mega Man X, thus confirming some of our earliest speculations.
Question is, are we looking at an entirely new figure or just the regular ol' D-Arts X wearing interchangeable First Armor parts? Your guess is as good as mine, but one thing is for sure: we aren't supposed to be seeing this. That little sign at the bottom? Yeah, it's meant to deter photography. Whoops!
Hopefully, Bandai will come out with some official news on this soon.
UPDATE: The legitimacy on this one is now in question. Looking back at the original report, we've actually quite a few shots of nothing in the capsule. This new image could be doctored, however, that's not to say this doesn't come from a completely different display at the same event... perhaps one intended for "press only" (hence the 'no photography' warning).
We shall see.

I'm personally hoping it might be the 'container' for the figure or some really cool addon... :)ReplyDelete
But yes, yeah for more information on the figure!
Sweet! This D-Arts Mega Man X figure is sounding even more awesome with every update!ReplyDelete
Looking closely it seems that this is legitimate. The proportions are consistent with the D-Arts and in the photos of the empty capsule the "no photo" sign is missing. The figures around the capsule are spaced slightly differently as well. If this is a shop then it's an incredibly well done one.ReplyDelete
I love the capsule. It pretty much represents why I became addicted to Mega Man X (and consequently Mega Man) to begin with, since I really loved the whole armor upgrade aspect of the game. Each new game, the most exciting thing for me was finding the armor parts, even up til X8.ReplyDelete
That is awesome, it's cool to see something different than just figures.ReplyDelete
If there's a hologram-like Dr. Light with that, this will be an insta-buy for me. I don't care how much it would be, I'll get it.ReplyDelete
supposed to**; FTFY.ReplyDelete
I am continually amazed at how otherwise articulate posts are marred by popular mispelling/misusages. No offense intended, ProtoDude -- I love your blog. I'm just a grammar Nazi.
I soooo want that capsule.ReplyDelete
Awesome, must-have, totally necessary display piece.
Speaking of toy news, has anyone posted the picture of the Zero Minimate yet? The actual figure, not the design sketches. I've seen it floating around, but I don't know if it got here yet or not.ReplyDelete
