The Round-Up: figma Kid Icarus, D-Arts Mega Man, Weaponeers of Monkaa
Wednesday, September 5th, 2012 by Pixel Dan
It’s been too long since I’ve posted a Round-Up, so here we go! Some of this is probably old news to most of you at this point, but it’s all stuff I felt like sharing nonetheless.
- -As if figma Samus Aran from Metroid and figma Link from The Legend of Zelda weren’t exciting enough, it was recently reported that the next Nintendo character getting the figma treatment will be none other than Pit from the Kid Icarus games, based on his appearance in the recent Kid Icarus: Uprising game on the Nintendo 3DS. I am overjoyed to keep seeing these classic Nintendo characters get modern, nicely sculpted and articulated action figures. It’s like a dream come true, and I’m hoping there are even more to come after this one! 8cough Star Fox *cough*
- -On a very related note, Bandai Japan has revealed the next figure in their Mega Man D-Arts line! Like the figma Nintendo figures, I’ve been very happy with the D-Arts figures based on the Mega Man X franchise. I was thrilled to see that their next will be straight from the classic Mega Man games: Mega Man with Rush and Metall! Yes! Here’s hoping for many more of these figures based on the classic NES games! I want to fill my shelves with Robot Masters! Make it happen, Bandai Japan!
- -Today’s round-up is practically video game themed! My friend Chris of Hunter Knight Customs is always making cool figures, but this one in particular really caught my attention. He made a MOTU Classics style Mega Man, which hearkens back to that bad US box art on the old NES games! You can check out his video here and bid on Ebay to try and add him to your collection here!
- -In case you missed my post yesterday about the new stuff coming from Spy Monkey Creations, you really need to head over to http://www.weaponeersofmonkaa.com and scope out all of their mouth-watering teasers! While we still don’t know exactly what they are up to, I know I for one am incredibly excited and can’t wait for the reveal at Power-Con later this month!
- -Speaking of Power-Con, are you going? I can’t believe that we are a mere three weeks away! All of the details and the schedule of events are available at http://www.ThePower-Con.com! Make sure to come up and say “Hi” if you’re attending!
Lots of exciting toy news there! I’ll do my best to try to stay up to date with these Round-Ups going forward. Stay tuned, as there are plenty of new video reviews on the way as well!
