Bandai is alright by me. For some time now, the company has been been making high-quality Mega Man X action figures as part of its D-Arts line. So far, there have been about five bajillion versions of X alone (regular, armored, metallic, etc.) yet only a single version of the series' true hero, Zero. That's about to change with the upcoming release of Zero Type 2 -- whereas Type 1 was modeled after Zero's simpler, non-blade-wielding appearance from X1, Type 2 resembles his appearance from the sequels.
The figure will be available this May for 3500 yen (about $46)... BUT WAIT! Here is a rare instance where normally Japan-exclusive goodies are brought to the West. The entire D-Arts Mega Man X line (save one), as well as many other Bandai figures, are available through Bandai's US distributor Bluefin. If you are willing to wait a few extra months, you can snag your prizes for less money and hassle!
