Bandai To Produce D-Arts Mega Man Figures?

According to a report at Tomopop, Bandai is eying a handful of fictional characters to add to their D-Arts line -- a series of high quality action figures -- with Mega Man himself in the running as a potential candidate:
"The company receives numerous requests for figures, and according the staff page of Tamashii Nation, they are now in the process of trying to make these reality for the D-Arts figure line. Among the names listed as possibilities they're looking at are Mega Man, Samus Aran, Grid Man (or as US fans may remember him as Servo from Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad!), Kuro-chan from Cyborg Kuro-Chan and yes, Izanagi from Persona 4!"

If you've seen Bandai's D-Arts figures before, then you know we're in for an extremely high quality product. D-Arts are supposedly made from the most durable BS and PVC materials around, which really ups the figure's detail and articulation. Sounds to me like Bandai is going to give Kotobukiya a run for their money.

Full story at Tomopop. Thanks, Jim!


  1. First new Bandai Rockman figure in 'nearly a decade?' Are we not counting the Super Modeling Soul figures because they aren't as large as your standard figure...? Or just because the Japanese site actually used "Mega Man" over Rockman that we're supposed to assume it's intended to make it to the US?

  2. Holy cow, I totally forgot about those. And here they are, just looking at me on my shelf, too...

  3. Bleh, old news.
    And of course, everyone will want an X and Zero first.

    I just hope there's Sigma figure eventually.

  5. Nice...REALLY NICE.

    *crosses fingers for Rockman related ones*

    I can't wait to see the Digimon ones that are coming out.

  6. I was already going "These will look sweet" when I read MegaMan.

    Then I came when right next to him it said "Samus Aran".

  7. God I hope so!

    They better make some X and Zero series action figures. Hell, make some ZX series action figures while they're at it!

  8. X and Zero figures like those from the megamission?? oh yeah!!!

  9. Megaman and Samas all the way!

  10. Hells yes, I want to see a good Samus figure.
