SDCC 2012: Tamashii Nations/Bluefin - D-Arts

Jul 13 // Andres Cerrato    @VistFoundation

The D-Arts line, much like S.H. Figuarts, has become heavily influenced by the U.S. Thanks in no small part to fans here, Mega Man is getting a lot of attention and Bandai is making figures for the fans and focusing on the Mega Man X series. There have already have been six releases in the line for MMX and if the fans continue to support the line, we'll be getting what was on display as well.

Just last week saw the release of Vile (or Vava if you're so inclined), so it's time to move on to the next release. The big attention was obviously Sigma, but also on display were the ride armor and a new black deco of Zero. Sigma definitely was a surprise, but remember, they're going off the fan polls (which he won). If you want the line to continue, it's going to need your support.

Kind of forgotten in all the Mega Man love was Terry Bogard. We saw him as a prototype sculpt last year, so I'm glad to see that he hasn't been forgotten by Bandai as well. As good as he looks and how I want him to be officially released, I want to see what comes of him. I want to see a Mai next, maybe even other fighting game franchises. I want to have a battle between Ryu and Goku and a D-Arts Street Fighter line would be amazing.

Just make these things happen, Bandai.
