Sometime around March of this year, news came out that Kotobukiya would be putting out a line of model kits in Japan based on characters from the Mega Man series. I hadn’t heard about it until recently when Roll was announced. The kits are molded in the appropriately colored plastic, so no paint should be required. Articulation looks to be excellent, in addition to many accessories including extra hands, faces, etc. While this wasn’t on my radar before, it certainly is now. Mega Man was the first kit in the line. Roll and Protoman are to follow.


It looks like Mega Man is currently on sale with pre-orders for Roll and Protoman expected to ship sometime around late December 2010 and late January 2011, respectively.
