Just as promised, Jin is continuing his journey through the Mega Man universe with a new custom. You may have seen his Mega Man custom from about a week ago (which ended up selling at just over US$350 by the way), but the time of Mega is past; bring on Zero!
I'll be quite frank: I'm not a diehard Zero fanboy. I always liked Mega Man better, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate Zero now and then, and it especially doesn't mean I can't appreciate a good custom Zero when it comes along, which it has. Jin has found a nice comfortable spot with the Marvel Legends 6" scale for custom figures, and Zero is no exception. The reason I can't get enough of this figure framework is because it means articulation out the wazoo (do robots have wazoos?). Don't believe me? Zero here can move and move well. Hell, even his hair is made to be double-ball jointed, meaning he's set for endless posing.
And accessories? Yes please! You've got Zero's energy sword, a standard of course, but also a sick looking blue blaster...blast. Apparently, any of those blaster accessories, such as the energy shield from the Mega Man figure, are all compatible between other figures in Jin's Marvel Legend Mega Man line. So if you're that lucky guy who got Mega, well more accessories for you.
Those interested, Zero's eBay auction is well underway. At the time of this writing it's only up to US$30, but there are five and a half days left, so expect a bidding war to ensue that will break you and reduce you to tears. Yes, I'm speaking from experience. and I can't get mad as Jin's auctions all start at one cent! Go out and bid on this for me! I'll just be waiting with bated breath for Vile, Bass, and an assortment of Robot Masters. Bring 'em on!
