Just in time for the Mega Man
's (or Rockman, as he's known in Japan) 25th anniversary, Bandai is bringing the classic version of the hero, his robo dog Rush and a Metall/Met into its D-Arts line of articulated action figures
. Set for release in Japan in early 2013, the figure will stand 105 mm (a little more than four inches) tall and retail for ¥3,675 (about $47 USD). Following in the footsteps of a few versions of Mega Man X, Zero and the villainous Vile, Classic Mega Man will come equipped with a few swappable faces, hands and arms, plus attachable energy blast accessories. Articulation and accessory-wise, this Mega Man action figure hits something of a sweet spot between Kotobukiya's recent model kit
and the '90s animated series MM figures from Bandai
(or, I guess the Jazwares figures
from a few years back). Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Rush will be able to transform into a flying skateboard. You can take a look at more images of D-Arts Mega Man, Rush and Met after the jump.
