Vote for Mega Man Bobble Budds

It was the Servbot that originally introduced us Mega Man fans to the Bobble Budd. Now the manufacturer is giving us the opportunity for more. Among concepts for new Bobble Budds are classic Mega Man and MegaMan Volnutt. All you have to do to show your support is find them and give them a Facebook like or a Google +1.Top voted characters will be considered for turning into real products.

Right now, MegaMan Volnutt seems to be a pretty popular choice. Just make sure you buy one if he wins! This would actually be a fantastic way to show some Legends 3 support. Use the Bobble Budd in all your promotions!

Thanks for the tip, stealthwoman and Dashe!

MML3 Devroom: MegaMan Design Round 2 - FIGHT!

Or, VOTE! rather. MegaMan's fashion crisis continues on and it's up to us to resolve things. However, given the results of the last poll, backers of designs B and C were pretty close. So those designs have been redefined in the new D and E designs, which have taken into account user feedback as well as analysis over MegaMan's appearance in the game. What's interesting to note is that the new designs have been made with the idea that the game will appeal to an older audience. I wonder if that mindset is going into other aspects as well, like the story? Also, some particular advice to keep in mind before you vote:

As a bit of advice, or perhaps a request, I hope that you’ll see these designs for what they are, and not get hung up on how the designs have changed since the previous poll. Try to forget about the previous round and just focus on what’s before your eyes now when you make your judgment. What impressions do they leave on you? What do you like or dislike?

So this will be the deciding factor. D or E, the result of this is what we play! Decide what you like and make your voice heard! You have until next Thursday, the 26th, 6PM PST. Aside from that, you can also check out the article for some insight into Roll's new design.

The Results of Capcom's Desired Figure Vote

It's been about six weeks now, with the vote having begun back on April 1st. But voting is done and the results are finally in. 6,602 total votes were received, and now as promised Ucchy-san delivers us the results. The top three most desired characters to be turned into figures are... 1st place: Zero (MMX version) with 1,927 votes. Well this is pretty convenient, since Bandai has already announced a D-Arts figure of the guy!

2nd place: Full Armor X with 1,367  votes. Again, good news for Bandai considering they've hinted at such a figure being released.

3rd place: Vile with 1,093 votes. Now here's one I can really get behind; villain figures are pretty rare. And it's hardly inconceivable Bandai would tackle this fellow should the other D-Arts figures take off.

One might conclude that figure and merchandise fans are largely X fans too! Pretty interesting stuff, and good news for those looking forward to Bandai's figures. However, there's still plenty of more data to go over. Hit the jump to check out the rest.

4th place: Bass with 976 votes.

5th place: Bass EXE with 895 votes.

6th place: A tie between Ciel and MegaMan Volnutt, both received 804 votes.

7th place: MegaMan Model ZX with 783 votes.

8th place: Leviathan with 741 votes.

9th place: Iris with 724 votes.

10th place: Roll Caskett with 673 votes.

Following the top ten we have:

11th: Harpuia with 625 votes

12th: Tron with 606 votes

13th: Luna Platz with 586 votes (seriously)

14th: MegaMan EXE with 583 votes

MML3 Devroom Event: Rock the Reaverbot Vote

Another call has been made for fans to vote on Mega Man Legends 3 content. While MML3 is bound to have plenty of new Reaverbots, the mysterious and sometimes frightening automatons that inhabit the worlds' ruins, the developers are interested in knowing which ones we'd like to see return as well. Thus, a large scale poll has begun letting users pick from nearly every Reaverbot the series has seen so far. After looking over the available Reavers (each of which having a brief description), simply head over to the poll here and vote on the Reaverbots you like. You can pick up to five. You can also go tothis forum thread and write about the ones you want to see. It's encouraged that you explain why you want to see them return, because at least one Reaverbot will be selected based on how strong the fan support that it has over how many votes it has. You have until Thursday, May 5th at 5PM PST to place your votes!

Mega Man X Takes the DLC Vote Crown

The voting is over, the dust has settled, and the results are in. And X fans should be accordingly happy! Because in the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 DLC fan poll, the big blue guy won it with 2,568 votes, a whopping 542 votes ahead of second pick Phoenix Wright. In fact, 34% of all people who voted chose X as one of the three picks. Additionally, Classic Mega Man came in 9th with 967 votes, Bass.EXE came in 10th with 889 votes, Sigma came in 13th (barely falling behind Ryu (other Ryu)) with 790 votes, and MegaMan.EXE landed in 19th with 548 votes. But hey, great going X! Of course, gotta be Mr. Killjoy now and reiterate this was not an official Capcom poll, and does not have any official bearing on future DLC choices. However, should Capcom look to fan feedback in making a selection, I'd say X has a pretty strong resume.

But hey, we can still discuss it. Now that we know Mega Man X is the top pick among voting fans, just which Mega Man X would you like to see? His usual form? Perhaps his slimmed down X8 form? Maybe his stealthy Command Mission form? Or how about one of any number of armors? How do you see X being a formidable opponent?

Thanks for the tip, Racerman!

Vote for Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 DLC

You can vote for a minimum of three characters and a maximum of five, and voting will be closed during night. You have until February 28th to cast your votes, so hurry and get your votes in! Hundreds already have.

Thanks for the tip, Glitcher!

Mega Man shirt up for a vote at Split Reason

Split Reason, an apparel site for "geeks and gamers," as they put it, is letting viewers vote on a Mega Man themed design candidate for potential production. Saying "Happens to the best of us," this design really does capture the feeling we all tend to come across now and again when playing Mega Man games. Considering a lot of Mega Man shirt designs tend to use just sprites, I find this design pretty cool, and I hope it gets made. Take a look at the design below, then head over to Split Reason and make it happen, my MMN minions! News Credit: Main Finger
