Today we saw that Sideshow Collectibles was teasing the release of two new statues based on the Mega Man X series of video games. The 1/4 scale statues of X and Zero come in both collectors and deluxe editions. The deluxe versions come with a capsule base, while the CE ones come with just the character and a simple round base.
From the two images from PCS, it looks like the statues have multiple ways of being displayed: with/without the repair diorama and interchangeable faceplates. In addition, both X and Zero are missing their arm cannons. Prices for the CE and Deluxe editions of X and Zero have not yet been determined. What we do know is that the 30″ tall statues will ship sometime between March and May 2023.
Each Deluxe Edition statue will come with the following:
- Fully Sculpted Statue
- Highly Detailed Capsule Base
- Swap-Out Closed-Eyes Portrait
Mega Man X first launched on the Super NES in the US in 1994. While the game retained several elements from the earlier NES Mega Man titles, it introduced several new gameplay mechanics. Wall jumping and dashing, which now are more common in the series, made their debut in this title. It also had a banging soundtrack, bro. Listen to the Spark Mandrill track and tell me that isn’t badass.
Mega Man X was followed by seven sequels, the first of which launched a year after the first title’s release. The final sequel, Mega Man X8, was released on the Playstation 2 and PC in 2004/2005 (Japan/US). Need a recap of the first Mega Man X game? Check out Terminal Montage’s animations below:
