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!
yes yes yesReplyDelete
No more figures, please! I want new games for the next console or 3DS. Sighing.ReplyDelete
Yeah, Bandai! Start making Megaman games!ReplyDelete
awesome, I hope the head isn't overly huge like the kotobukiya megaman model kit though. knowing bandai their classic mm will be more proportionate, I do hope they continue with the x series figures as well though.ReplyDelete
Well, hopefully they'll get to Protoman, Bass, and hopefully Duo.ReplyDelete
P. cool but um, does this mean no fake black Zero or Sigma? :/ReplyDelete
Anon2: Get outta here with that "no more figures" stuff. You may not want them, but other people (me included) DO want figures!ReplyDelete
Besides that, the people that make the figures don't have anything to do with the games. They just hold the license, is all.
God damn it....ReplyDelete
Seems that poll was practically for nothing.
We have MORE than enough Classic style figures as it is. Can't we get some DASH, ZX and SSR figures? -_-
@Amir: ZX and SSR are the two bad children of the series and didn't sell THAT much. Thus the target audience for figures is smaller.ReplyDelete
Like many say for Legends, Legends fans voted for only to send a message to Capcom. In addition, it's less controversial. Legends is a delicate topic, and I suspect that the standards for a Legends figure would be held higher as well.
YES!!! This is great news for those of us who love quality figures and the classic series! This has got me stoked and I cannot wait for more information to be revealed. ^^ReplyDelete
Negative response: I believe we voted for Mega Man Volnutt, Bandai.ReplyDelete
Positive response: Splash Woman, hoooo!~

Wonder what this figure'll have to distinguish it from Koto-Mega.
'P. cool but um, does this mean no fake black Zero or Sigma? :/'ReplyDelete
That's not implied anywhere at all.
Zero, Sigma, and Ride Armor are still coming. They mentioned that those weren't the only Mega Man products coming out from them.

Isn't Clown Prince of Crime really annoying ? He always badmouth some people.ReplyDelete

Yeah, something along the lines of "We wanted a Volnutt figure"
