BLOG: Giga Armor Series Rockman X
|Upon its initial reveal, many speculated that this is Tamashii Nations’ response to TruForce Collectibles’ well received Designer Series Rockman X figure. It might be true but Bandai already did a similar figure way back.
Because prior to this Giga Armor Series Rockman X figure, Bandai had the Mega Armor Series line of model kits based on Rockman characters featuring interchangeable armor and weapons. The line was discontinued in 2001 after releasing Rockman X6. Being a spiritual successor, Giga Armor Series releases might have the same interchangeable armor and weapons gimmick but instead of being a model kit, it’ll probably be a completed figure with die-cast content.
Will definitely check how this ‘new’ line will turn out once released
