    I got the two X's and Ride Armor, all for $20. Which means the guy who sold them to the shop got less than that. I can just imagine that guy finding out how much the ride armor is worth. Talk about a kick in the nuts.

    I just got my X3 Max Armor kit today... wow, not my favorite armor but looks awesome, even fixes a problem my basic X figure had with his helmet not fitting straight. Only gripe (other than it's not the Hyper version) is the sheer mass of stickers, they dont like to stick to the chrome and every time I pick him up I'm rubbing the edges of his decals which might be problematic.

    Yeah, I ended up painting the Max Armor (non-chrome) because it's stickers just suck. I think there's 24 stickers on that?

    I was so happy when I found out the (chrome) fourth armor is mostly painted (and with chome paint, unlike what it shows on the package). the armor itself only had 10 stickers, four of which were on the rim of the boots. the stickers it does have are really good and stick to the chrome just fine.

    Double post, but I just got these three in the mail today.

    I am very happy.

    Zero's armor kept shattering though. had to be glued many times, and will never come off now. probably because I got the original release of the kit, since no one I know who has the newer releases has had that problem.

    the gold sticker on his chest vent is my own addition, to make him more accurate. just trimmed a bit off the sticker sheet when I was done with it.

    and just for the hell of it, a shot with the rest of the kits I got this week.

    it was a very good week. kinda expensive though.

    Man, All X looks so much better in plated than clear armor.

    My Max Armor kit's polycaps split too. It seems to be a problem with just the white ones (I've fiddled around with my plated Rockman far more often, and his joints are fine). for the best stability, open the part (if you can) and turn the polycap so that the split faces away from the way the joint bends, So the elbow joints would have the split pointing towards the back. also - with future kits, don't push the peg all the way into the polycap. the pegs are a tiny bit wider at the base than they are at the end, and this will speed up the splitting. while pushing the piece on, you should actually be able to feel where it wants to stop, just a few milimeters away from the end of the peg.

    Yeah, but covering up that gold frame of his makes me feel bad. and taking a picture of him is a pain in the ass.

    awe man, now that you mention it I do see a broken polycap in All X's buster. I think when my next kits get here I'm going to file down the pegs just a tiny bit.

    I also have Legends Roll and Tron on the way. I'll take pics with my Drill arm Megaman Trigger when they get here.

    Sorry about digging this thread up, but I have some Q's:


    Was there ever a model kit made of Vile? And does anyone have pictures of a completed Forte kit?

    yup, there's a vile kit. look for vava mk.II.

    it's very rare, and will go for a big chunk of money if you find it.

    I suggest just trying to find the armor set (they were sold in bags) for him, and put the set on a zero frame (for black limbs). it'll look the same as a full vile kit, and be much cheaper.

    I've been chasing that Vile kit for a while now. It's probably the most insanely expensive there is. If you're willing to pony up $50-$80 US plus shipping from hong kong one of the retailers on ebay has it pretty frequently. But for a better price you have to do some fighting.

    My brother's got one heck of a Megaman collection. Only two figures - the Toy Biz classic Megaman and the exclusive game pack Ultimate Armour X. He makes up for it by having all the games. Lots and lots of games:

    Wow, really? Vile's price must have exploded... I got mine for around 20 bucks, and he's been collecting dust behind my computer monitor ever since. Nice figure, though!

    The one that has eluded me is Forte (Bass). I've never seen a Buy It Now for less than $100 on eBay, and have stopped checking regularly. Probably missed a few along the way. :(
