Ah, D-Arts Mega Man, it seems like just Saturday when we started running stories about you. And now, just a mere four days and two morestories later, you're finally available for pre-order.
For those just tuning in, D-Arts Mega Man will come with pet robotic dog/jet/submarine/spring Rush, a Metall (or Met), at least one alternate face (struggling), and at least one attack accessory. Big Bad Toy Store (BBTS) seems to provide some additional insights as they list the set as coming with, "an extensive array of accessory parts such as shot effect parts, as well as two interchangeable face parts, additional right arm Mega Buster parts and Mega Buster barrel opening part, interchangeable right arm, and interchangeable left/right hand parts." Assuming that they count the default face as one of the interchangeable faces, that means no additional faces we hadn't seen.
Given the generally positive reaction to the set (and my own enthusiasm), I've been watching vigilently for pre-orders to open. BBTS led the pack for pre-orders as usual, opening theirs with enough time to include it in their weekly flyer. The Japanese hobby sites took a bit longer (I decided to let them catch up before breaking the news) but it was definitely worth waiting for AmiAmi since they win this round for coolest graphic (the compilation seen in the header).
At any rate, I think I've gone over my thoughts at length and many people have contributed their own insights. So rather than beat a dead Centaur Man, let's all get down to pre-ordering!
