These are a re-release of two figures they made in the past. I have them both and they are probably my favorite poseable Mega Man figures I've come across.

Their Megaman, Protoman, Roll, and Megaman Zero kits are amazing. Though, I think I like Bandai's D-Arts figures just a bit more.

You're right, the D-Arts figures are terrific. I have X and Zero and they're both pretty nice.

I've got the Megaman, Bass, X, Zero, and Vile (Vava) figures. I don't normally buy figures and stuff, but I love Megaman, and the D-Arts stuff is top-notch!

Launch? You mean relaunch, these originally came out years ago. I have both of them. I have them stood up under my Juri Han statue.

If they've changed significantly, I might pick up the new versions.

Further, these are model kits, not figurines--you assemble them yourself. That said, these are perhaps my favorite toy renditions of Megaman and co., and I hope that Protoman gets a rerelease as well--and maybe release a Bass while we're at it. Missed opportunity last time.

Kotobukiya never made a Bass (Forte) kit, unfortunately. However, Bandai did make a Bass figure in their D-Arts series, which included Treble (Gospel).

... But then, Bandai never made a figure of Protoman (Blues) or Roll. So either way, you couldn't get all the characters in a matching style (the Kotobukiya kits are noticeably bigger than the Bandai figures).
