Well I lost a bet.
Hot on the heels of Rockman Unity's April Fool's joke, the next Bandai D-Arts has been confirmed
: Ultimate Armor Rockman X. Further, Ucchy-san confirms Sigma will go into production as a Figuarts ZERO statue. He won't be articulated, but he'll probably end up being fairly big.
More info soon. Thanks, The Mega Man Network
"He won't be articulated" - this statement just ruined my day.ReplyDelete
Well, my money's safe. Ult. Armor is ugly as sin and the Sigma statue is likely to exceed my budget.ReplyDelete
Maybe they'll get back to making D-Arts figures based on the good Megaman games before long (or before crappy armor variants tank the entire line with poor sales).
Where's the stupid Cash Drive on this computer?! GIMME!ReplyDelete
Pre-ordering this as soon as it's available, same as I did with that marvelous Tails Exclusive statue.
I knew the odds of Iris being the figure were slim to noneReplyDelete
and yet I got excited still.
So much for that.
Aww, I was hoping for Iris...ReplyDelete
Words cannot express my disappointment. Really. I really was hoping for Roll or Iris. I guess one man's loss is another man's win - in this case, several men are happy. More power to you.ReplyDelete
Not surprised. Kind of hope they decide to release the other three at later dates, though. :cReplyDelete
Sold. Time to find the wallet.ReplyDelete
Who the hell actually thought Iris was going to be a D-Arts figure? She wasn't even that great. She's a completely forgettable character. Just your typical damsel in distress. YAWN. I'd rather have an Alia D-Arts figure, preferably from MMX8.ReplyDelete
Right, because Iris totally wasnt an important part of X4's plot and she was ONLY just Zero's lover, yea, that's SO forgettable, isnt it? -_-ReplyDelete
I agree with Anon4, i hope they do consider making the others later this year. It'd be a shame if they didnt.
Aesthetically, I find a lot of other X's armors more appealing visually: Falcon, Shadow, and X2 in particular for their edgy look.ReplyDelete
Ultimate's alright though, it's representative of the Playstation trilogy and therefore iconic so I guessed it'd generate more sales despite being targeted towards a niche audience.
Sigma's just gonna be a figure? BOOOOOO!ReplyDelete
Well, they were hinting at an Armor X back then.
I still need to get Zero v2!!
And I'm still praying for Iris!!
/\ And Iris appeared recently in Project x Zone, alongside X, Zero, and Vile. Guess who is missing? (Although X uses Ultimate Armor in one attack...) Well, gotta do the major ones first, so I'll not be surprised if an Axl figure is released before Iris or Colonel.ReplyDelete
I called it. I knew it was gonna be Ultimate Armor X. I'm still hoping we'll see Roll and Iris in the future, but... I'm starting to get this horrible feeling that the whole line is going to be practically nothing but variations of X and Zero.ReplyDelete
Excellent! Instant purchase for both of these. I would've gladly bought Iris and Roll as well, but I wasn't too keen on MMZ Zero (I probably would have gotten that as well, but that was definitely my least favorite of the bunch). Iris would have been awesome though, I'm sad they didn't go with that one. Ultimate Armor is incredible, though I also wish that they'd do the Ultimate Armor from Command Mission as well--THAT would be an impressive figure.ReplyDelete
Either way, both Ultimate Armor X and Sigma are day one purchases for me.
I think Alia would probably be my most wanted figure if they made that, but I would gladly get all of X's armor variants, because he's my all-time favorite. Legends and Classic line would also be great, but X is my main love.
Oh dear. I need them both.ReplyDelete
I totally called this in response to the original "April Fools" thread.ReplyDelete
Falcon armor next!!ReplyDelete
I was actually figuring Roll since they hopped on board the classic line up. Still nice to see them giving X more love. Im waiting for a Protoman, Axl, and Gate.ReplyDelete
