Kotobukiya 1/10 Megaman Zero Kit Review


I never cared about justice, and I don't recall ever calling myself a hero. I have always only fought for the people I believe in. I won't hesitate... If an enemy appears in front of me, I will destroy it!

Video Review:

Weapon: Z-Saber

Weapon: Buster Shot
Also shown here: alternative face using right-staring eyes

Weapon: Zero Knuckle


Megaman Zero is probably the only storyline in the Megaman series that I am familiar with. Despite played a bit of Megaman X and X2, I don't really follow the storyline there, which is probably why I favour this model kit over the previous release (Original series Rockman, Roll and Blues), or the D-art's release (X and Zero).

So, the good point. It is pretty easy to build, most colour are molded in, there are plenty of articulations. The built kit is pretty stable on the ground, and most joints hold poses pretty well.

So the bad? There are some proportion problem. The head seems to be too big compared to the limbs, and the torso is not wide enough to give it's shoulders some "volume". The elbows and knees have only 90degree bend, where 130+ would be a lot more helpful. Also, need more hair, or at least some joints so the hair can spread out more.

More weapon would be nice too. I would love to display him with the chain rod or recoil rods for example.

But overall, I am just glad there is some merchandise for this series of Megaman. Now, if only they make the 4 Guardians, or perhaps ZX.... or even Ciel?


  1. I am also working on this kit atm and wished the kit got some more weapons since this guy deserve more.

    Yours is really good, do you paint the whole kit or you just give partial paint job?

    1. I actually didn't do much painting, because I want to keep the kit "playable" without worry of paint chipping. all I did is:
      - painting the fingers white
      - paint the 2 yellow stripes on the torso and the collar around the neck
      - the hair is putied and spray-painted overall
      - the Buster Shot handle is painted grey
      - cheek "horn" pieces are sharpen
      I also did the Glue and sanding down trick on all the major seamlines.
