SDCC 2012: Bandai Japan D-Arts Mega Man X

Bandai Japan had a terrific display set-up for their line of Mega Man X D-Arts figures. Notable in this display were figures of the villain Sigma, as well as a large mech suit for Mega Man to ride in!

There was no information posted on these two items, so I spoke with a rep at the Bandai Japan booth.

He explained that as of right now, both items are just prototypes. They are working on licensing for these, so they do hope to actually release them. But for now, they need to hear the fan response on these two items.

So, what do you think? Do you want a Sigma or Mech Suit for your D-Arts Mega Man X figures? If so, spread the word and make it heard!

Bandai ThunderCats Modern 6″ Tygra Figure Review

What’s going on with Bandai’s ThunderCats toyline right now? We’re unsure. But we do know that with the figures hitting clearance shelves at many stores, one of the hardest figures to find is the 6″ scale modern Tygra figure!

Is he an improvement over previous figures? Join me for a look at this hard to find figure in Bandai’s ThunderCats line. Video after the jump!

What does the future hold for ThunderCats?

Update: Well, the plot thickens. ToyNewsI.com has just put up an article stating that they contacted Bandai asking about the rumors surrounding the demise of the line. Bandai states that they are still the master toy license holders for ThunderCats, and that they are currently focussing on rolling out product outside of the US.

That’s not a terrible amount of info, but at least we know Bandai hasn’t lost the license…yet. I’m still very interested to see how this all plays out, as I still find it highly unusual that Bandai hasn’t released or even shown us any new ThunderCats product since late last year.

Original Post: The future of the ThunderCats has been a hot topic as of late, and it seems to be really heating up.

The general consensus about the Bandai toy line has been that it’s in trouble. Ever since Toy Fair in February, where Bandai didn’t show off anything new for the brand, most collectors got the impression that the toy line was coming to an end.
