    I've been buying these kickass Megaman X 15th anniversary Japanese model kits lately, and been loving them. The level of detail is far beyond the American models. Thus far I've got "All Armor X" and Black Zero. Not exactly sure where the first one is from but it's pretty nice.

    Anyone else collecting these? Share pics?

    I have the chrome Rockman that shoots balls out of his buster. I also have the X3 powersuit version of X.

    This is the only pic I have of the Rockman kit I have.

    I've never gotten any of the models, but I figured I'd share a picture of my MegaMan action figure collection. I'm a big fan of the blue bomber.

    I have a total of 4 MMX kits.

    Parasite bomb X
    X3 Armored X
    Steel Buster regular X
    and an X3 Ride Armor

    I got those last three together for $20. All I need now is a Zero and Vile and I'll be happy with my X collection. After that, it's on to finding a Rockman Trigger kit.

    They need to make some Command Mission, Zero, and ZX kits now.

    Cool, I have that little guy too. I also have:

    non-Chrome Rockman
    Protoman
    Rush
    Swordman
    Vile

    I'll try to snap some photos tomorrow if I get a chance. I love these little guys... though I never attempted to collect all that were out there. Some are really hard to find, and I figured it would drive me mad. :)

    Just got these a while back while I was doing Christmas shopping for a friend who collects Megaman figures. Really nice, proportions, quality, and articulation are a lot better than US-sold models and the Jazwares figures.

    Just wondering, where did you get the kits and how tall are they?

    The kits are pretty easily found on eBay, that's where I got mine. Pretty inexpensive, too, Zero was $5 for me, X for $10. Just put in a search for Rockman instead of Megaman, you'll get a few surprises. For height, see my picture for comparison, but actual measurement is a hair or two over 4 inches.

    And reading that again, Gryph... where the hell did you find a ride armor kit? I've been after one for a while now.

    Good tip OP. Just tried that and netted a Drill Arm Megaman Trigger for myself. Doubly cool due to having a drill arm. Robots are cool, but robots whom for no practical reason have a giant honking drill for a fist are even cooler.

    I have the two that Omegus Prime has pictured and I think i have Treble and the dog...Rush? It's been a while. I'd love to have a Ride Armor too but I'm too cheap to pay for it. What do they go for now. I remember they used to go for $100 but last time that I really tried for one it was about $60

    Local toy collectors shop called The Earth. They tend to get some Japanese stuff on occasion. I got a Kamen Rider Ouja Souchaku Henshin figure for $7 once. Awhile back someone sold them a huge Transformers collection. It had a bunch of Botcon stuff, like Catscan, Cyclonus, Sentinel Prime, Tigatron, the first three of the current Botcon box sets, and a couple other things that I can't remember. There was also some JP BW stuff, a few Robot Masters, and a couple Mega SCFs.

    It's a nice little place. Right by the comic shop I go to, also. :p

    That's something else I'd like to have. How's the Shadow Armor look?

    The Shadow armor looks cool, but the stickers for his feet are a pain to put on. Also, I ended up using a Zero (EX version) body instead of an X body, since X's armors were more unique

    Hey, he had a damn good reason! It's the only way to get through the weak walls in the later ruins!

    I just have the Retro-Roto figures from Jazwares. Not really all that posable, but they look good. They were supposed to release a series 2 back in 2005-06 that included at least Wiley, Woodman, Iceman, and I think Heatman. They never came out, and Jazwares has never responded to emails over the last to years that I have sent. It's a shame, I was really looking forward to those.

    BTW, the Rush isn't one of the Retro-Rotos, but he fits in perfectly.

    I fucking hate Jazzwares. They ruined Megaman, and they're the reason the Sota Street Fighter action figures couldn't be sold in regular toy stores.
