A quick update for fellow Mega Man fans, Kotobukiya’s Proto Man (aka “Blues”) kit is now available for pre-order from AmiAmi (set to release January 2011, so it’ll be awhile) for a surprisingly affordable 2,170 yen (likely ~ $22-27 dollars depending on the exchange rate at the time of release). If it’s anything like their recent Rock Man kit (now 27% off) you definitely don’t want to miss it. And who would want to be without Mega Man’s older brother?!
I just received my Rock Man pre-order last week and while I haven’t had the chance to put it together just yet, I was blown away by the production values (even the over sized box was great). We could only dream of this kind of thing back in that 8-bit era when we were enthusiastically playing Mega Man II, so you better believe I jumped at the chance to own these! Hope you folks are able to enjoy them as well.
