WonderCon 2012: Bluefin Distribution

Bluefin Distribution's booth (That's Bandai and Tamashii Nations worked into a maze of figure display cases) always seems swamped at events. I remember seeing it at Otakon and NYCC, and both times it was tough to get a good l...

Zero takes the spotlight from Rockman again with Kotobukiya's new poseable figure kit

Tomopop Review: Bandai's D-Arts Rockman X photo
Tomopop Review: Bandai's D-Arts Rockman X
by Tyler Jones

Mega Man X on the Super Nintendo was my first Mega Man game. As such, the X series has always been near and dear to my heart, with X4 being one of my favorite adventure platformers ever. This love of the series got me into collecting Bandai's Rockman X Mega Armor figures over ten years ago, which was my first serious effort at toy collecting.

Now Bandai is at it again, launching a new D-Arts poseable figure series, with good old X as the first in the line. How does it measure up? A decade later, is it a worthy follow up to one of my favorite toy series ever?

Short answer: heck yes. For the long answer: check out all the juicy details after the break!
