Kotobukiya Seeking Fan Requests for New Kits


Is there a particular Mega Man character you want to see immortalized as an official Kotobukiya model kit? Now's your chance to let 'em know.



The annual Kotobukiya product survey is now open for fans to submit character ideas for future kits. It's a no holds barred event -- any and all character ideas are welcome! Simply look over these two steps to get your idea out the door:

1) Read the sample ENGLISH survey. You'll reference this to fill out the actual form below.

2) Fill out the actual survey! Refer to the sample English form above or the Google Translate version to guide your way.

And that's it! You can submit up to five characters, Mega Man-related or not. The survey is anticipated to end on January 10 at 08:59 JST. (or earlier if the number of responses exceeds Kotobukiya's expectations) 

If you need help coming up with character ideas, there's an official brainstorming thread on Koto's Discord too. Good luck and well wishes, folks!

  1. Ah, another toy survey, another chance to wonder if anyone outside of Taiwan remembers that Iris exists...

    Well, I know who I'm asking for.

  2. If they are up for enemies, could use more Metalls, or Sniper Joe figures. Or possibly even more obscure Mega Man characters that rarely appeared. I could possibly give a few submissions, but even WITH that google translation, its still a bit confused and the web page 'IS' in Japaenese, so... It is what it is. *shrugs*

  3. X-Kai would be cool but I don't think it'd happen.

  4. sample english survey is kinda confusing in that it doesn't indicate the flow of the japanese options.

    in the english sample one, you have the options listed straight up and down:
    1
    2
    3
    4
    5

    but in the japanese survey, these questions are double columned, and happen to correspond to the english sample choices as such:
    1 2
    3 4
    5

  6. All the Sigmas! All the Mavericks! All the swimsuit navigators! All the pending X armors! OMG, so hard to choose only 5.

  7. Took my time and did it. Google Translate helps for the open questions and basic Japanese knowledge helps to edit it. I let them know I want more X-Series and nothing but X-Series lol. And to take it easy with X himself and make enemies too, like Sigma and Mavericks. I was gonna add Swimsuit Iris from Dive to the list... but then I saw nah, fuck it. lol. Horny police stopped me.

  8. Come on, guys. You already know. We need our purple Boba Fett to have his time in the limelight.

    1. Substituted the last one for Black Zero, to align with the survwt format better.

  11. I have a request: make more of the old ones.

    I missed my two chances to get a Roll one at a reasonable price, and I do not plan to miss a third chance, should it arise.

  12. Done! I'm so down for DiVE Armor X. Those transparent "X" wings. Now's the time, while DiVE is still relevant.

  13. I’d like to see the original six robot masters, that’s a long shot but when it comes to robot masters they could at least do a few of the more popular/iconic ones, and you cant go wrong with pulling from the first game in that regard.

    Forte is an obvious choice too.
