Bandai Gauging Interest for Rockman Shodo Figures

Bandai have been pumping out a ton of Rockman figures lately, and it seems that trend may continue. Right now, Bandai are asking fans about which video game, manga or anime series they would like to see a Shodo figure of. The Rockman series is among the twenty available choices.

From what I've been able to gather, access to the poll is currently customers who purchased any of the latest Dragon Ball Z Shodo figures. The figures come with a QR code that, when scanned, take you to the online poll. So unless you own one of these figures, you can't participate (for now). We'll keep you posted if anything changes on that front.
