Hoo it’s been awhile, that tends to happen when all your preorders don’t ship until the end of the month. Anyway Mega Man, where do I even begin with Mega Man. This character and his game franchise was one of my absolute favorites as a kid, second only to the Metroid series. Unfortunately a game franchise spanning two decades, fifty games, and both American and Japanese cartoons hasn’t had much in the way of impressive action figures. There were some short-lived lines here and there from Bandai, and a few model kits released in Japan, but nothing that really gave the Blue Bomber the respect I feel he deserves. That is until the D-Arts line, the line developed by Bandai to encompass various video game and anime properties (one of which I’ve already reviewed before) Since its inception we’ve been blessed with Mega Man X, Full Armor Mega Man X1, Zero(V1) and soon a Vile! The latest release is Zero as he’s depicted in every Mega Man X game after the first. Read on for the review.
Back when Pokemon was starting to become a thing, a lot of other properties tried to follow suit. The one I ended up attaching myself to was Medabots. A charming little show, but not enough to pull me into any video games, toylines or what have you. Then the D-Arts line started: Bandai’s “digital figuarts” line that seems to mainly pull from video game properties. Medabots was one of the properties to come under this umbrella, and with it comes the angsty anti-hero Rokusho (who’s name I will mispell about 12 more times I’m sure) So let’s see how this little guy compares.
