Review: D-Arts Mega Man X Figures

Review: D-Arts Mega Man X Figures

Postby XHunter » Thu May 10, 2012 8:23 pm

Well I am now officially on summer break so that means I have more time to make posts. To start off this summer I have decided to make a review about something that I have recently acquired, the D-Arts Mega Man X figures.

Image Image


Specifically I will be talking about the US Exclusive San Diego 2011 Comic Con Metallic Mega Man X but before I do that let me talk about the current D-Art series. As it stands now there are four Mega Man X D-Art figures, Mega Man X, Zero (version 1), Armored X, and the US Exclusive San Diego 2011 Comic Con Metallic Mega Man X with Zero (version 2) and Vile set to be released soon. From what I understand (And correct me if I am wrong) the standard US version of Mega Man X is no longer being made so the only way to obtain the standard Mega Man X figure is to import the Japanese version which can become very costly.

The Zero figure is the Mega Man X 1 version of Zero before we saw him with his iconic saber and redesign from X2 and onward. What is interesting about this series of figures is that the X and Zero figures have interchangeable parts. So if you wanted X to have the Z-Buster you could very much do that. Just like with the Zero figure, the Armored X figure has interchangeable parts that is compatible with the other two figures in the series. In addition, each figure comes with a set of buster parts, faces, hands, and buster shots so that you can customize your figurine into any pose you may like. On a personal note, I have not actually opened the boxes for Zero, Armored X, or the US Exclusive San Diego 2011 Comic Con Metallic Mega Man X so that I can keep their collectors value in mint condition unopened boxes. The X figure you see out of the box and proudly displayed is an additional US Exclusive San Diego 2011 Comic Con Metallic Mega Man X figure I purchased just to mess with.

As far as joint articulation, these figures are double jointed so there is a wide range of poses you can pull off with these figures.

If you are interested in buying one of these I highly recommend checking out Amazon.com. My only suggestion is to get the San Diego 2011 Comic Con Metallic Mega Man X over importing the standard version because limited numbers of the comic con version were made and it currently only costs $59.25 USD while the standard version to import is $162.35 USD. Additionally you may have noticed that I had a special support stand to help hold my Metallic Mega Man X. The support stand is called a Tamashii Stage and they come in different varieties and cost ranges. The one I have is called a Tamashii Stage Act 4, Stand Support Type Passion Blue and costs $18.90 USD on Amazon. A link to all the figures and the Tamashii Stage will be linked below.

I actually have the Zero and non-shiny X figure. They are nice to look at and sit on my tv stand. Got one X from AnimeNext in NJ and Zero from a few friends for Xmas last year.

I was originally going to purchase both the standard X and the Metallic comic-con version but as I said in the review, the standard version was $150+ and was not worth it considering the price of the comic-con version which was made in limited supply.
