Bandai's Mega Armor Series Returns - Giga Armor Mega Man X Announced

If you were a Mega Man fan in the 90s, you likely hold fond memories of Bandai's Mega Armor figures. These articulate, 4-inch figures were simple model kits that could be customized with various armor and accessories based predominantly on the Mega Man X series. They were fun to collect and build. Unfortunately the line was discontinued in 2001 shortly after the release of Mega Man X6.

Today, Bandai are breathing new life into the 20-year-old line. The Mega Armor series is back and better than ever..

Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 Leaked By Korean Rating Board (Updated)

UPDATE (5/10): Ratings have appeared in Taiwan for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Hold onto your butts: Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 has been rated in Korea for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. It will allegedly contain Mega Man 7, Mega Man 8, Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10. Yep; Mega Man 9 and 10.

Now, it's too soon to say which version of Mega Man 8 will be included (PSX or Saturn) and whether or not Mega Man & Bass will make the cut. But honestly, just four games? There's gotta be a little something else in there (or there should be). Pending an official announcement from Capcom, we can only speculate. 

Stay tuned for more updates! Hopefully we'll have news sooner than later.

Pre-orders should be going up shortly. Keep an eye on the usual places, like Big Bad Toystore and Ami Ami. For now, you can check out some additional images here.

Closer Look at Mega Man X Marvel Vs Capcom Infinite Figure

Marvel Vs Capcom Infinite producer Danny Koo posted a much better look at the Mega Man X figure coming with the Collector's Edition. Its appearance is based on X's in-game character model, right down to the small exaggerated traits (the arcs in the helmet, for example).

As previously mentioned, the figure can link together with the three other figures - Chun-Li, Captain Marvel and Iron Man - to form a smashing diorama. The Collector's Edition will set you back $199.99.

NXEDGE Zero Figure Seemingly in Development

My Figure Collection has outed the existence of an NXEDGE Zero figure well ahead of an official announcement from Bandai. Much like NXEDGE Mega Man X (hitting retail soon), Zero will stand at 3.9 inches tall with varying degrees of articulation. The figure will go on sale in September.

More news on this front as it comes. Thanks to Jan for the tip!

The New Mega Man Cartoon Will Air on Cartoon Network in 2018 (Update)

It goes without saying I've been keeping a tight lip on a certain leaked trailer from the new Mega Man cartoon. Per the request of Dentsu Entertainment, I did not post it. Not yet, anyway. And while I'm still waiting for the go-ahead to do just that, here's a bit of news to chew on in the meantime: the show will air on Cartoon Network in 2018 in the United States, Dentsu announced. A toyline and a focus on global development will follow suit.

UPDATE: The English press release revealed a new character - Suna Light. Read on for the details and plot synopsis...

The Rockman Unity App is doing something a little different this month. Coinciding a brand new mobile wallpaper - featuring Ciel and Passy, no less - you can snag a pair of gag manga. No translation at the moment but that shouldn't take anything away from the charming old-school style art.

Hit the download link here for all three wallpaper sizes! Previous Rockman Unity mobile wallpapers can be found here.

Many thanks to Reploid 21XX for the rip!
