New (Prototype) Rockman X Figure From Bandai (Updated)

A little while back it was reported that Bandai was considering producing a figure based upon Rockman X. Now comes our first look at the potential figure...potential in that it may not actually release. (Updated: Two new images!)

The figure placed 5th in Bandai's poll for character-based figures consumers would like to see. As such, this doesn't necessarily mean the figure will be mass produced and sold -- that reward would go to first place. Even so, according to a tip sent to The Mega Man Network, it's highly unlikely Bandia would go to all that the trouble to produce this prototype just for show and not release it.

Nevertheless the X prototype, and the other runner ups, will be on display this weekend at the Tamashi Nation event at Akihabara Akiba Square UDX2F in Japan. If you're in the area, you might want get a good look at X while you can; we may not this figure again!

Thanks for the tip, all!
