Sigma is one of the latest characters confirmed to be merchandised, though unlike the other characters before him, he will not appear under D-Arts as a poseable action figure, but a static figure under Figuarts ZERO line. He was ranked 2nd in the previous questionnaire. A slight catch though is that Sigma will only be exclusively available in Bandai Premium's Tamashii Web Shop.
I personally voted for Black Zero and VAVA's ride armour, but I also hope that Colonel from X4 will also make an appearance one way or the other. Hopefully if they do appear that the chance for them to end up as web shop exclusives won't be too high, but one can only hope.
