A little ways back we learned that Rockman X manga author/artist Yoshihiro Iwamoto would be spearheading the creation of a Merti garage kit. And now Iwamoto's back with our first look at the work-in-progress uncolored prototype. Check it out..
Unfortunately, no other details are given concerning accessories or the like, but with these images out and about we should hear new details pretty soon.
According to a previous teaser, the garage kit is somehow tied to the upcoming Winter 2012 Wonder Festival in February. For the uninitiate, garage kits are predominately sold exclusively through events like Wonder Festival. Kits featured become pretty difficult to obtain outside of Japan, not to mention extremely pricey. Merti, no doubt, will continue that tradition.
Pics of the completed and painted kit are likely forthcoming, so Iwamoto fans should definitely be on the lookout!
