Rumor went around earlier today that Bandai is gearing up to produce a D-Arts figure of classic Mega Man. According to the denizens of 2ch and Tonberi Tei, the figure is scheduled to ship in December with retail publicity starting on Sepember 5th. And now we've received word that, yes, classic Blue Bomber is indeed the next character in line to receive the slick D-Arts treatment.
The Mega Man Network writes, "Although we don’t have any pictures or new details on the figure, it turns out that origin of the listing is from Bandai’s own online Tamashii Mail Magazine. So the figure is very much real. Hopefully information and media will be coming from this weekend’s Bandai event!"
Bandai will be holding a Tamashii Features showcase event this Saturday, so there's definitely a chance we'll see the figure there. And now you have some lovely news to look forward to. Stay tuned!
Thanks for the tip, Rockx!
