At last, we have ourselves a firm release date for Kotobukiya's highly anticipated 1/10 scale Zero model kit. And it's not too far away! According to Koto’s mobile site, the red rocker will hit store shelves in Japan on October 18.
The model kit includes a number of accessories such as a Z-saber, Z-Knuckle, and Buster Gun. He also has two faces, as well as seemingly alternate eye sets allowing him to look off to the side. The icing on the cake, however, has got to be the bad ass box art (pictured), illustrated by none other than the famed Toru Nakayama. Just look at that. Wow. Always a pleasure to see Nakayama pumping out material post-Zero series.
The kit kit will retail for 3,200 Yen (roughly $41.85 US) when it hits. Where to buy? If you're too impatient to wait for the English version, due out by December, then you'll find a number of import retailers primed and ready for your dollar. You can't go wrong Amiami and HLJ, although shipping may sting a bit.
For now, Zero appears to be the last Rockman kit from Kotobukiya. However, you never know. Something entirely new could be in the works right now...
