Mega Man Toys Toys

D-Arts Mega Man toys are the most beautiful things I have ever seen. Bandai Japan did a really good job this time. A REALLY good job. Interchangeable parts including faces, high, accurate detail to the first X game, it's all quite brilliant. Kotobukiya also did an amazing job on the original Mega Man series figures with the Rock, Blues and Roll. This all has me thinking.....
Where in the world are the villains?
The only villains for Mega Man I have ever seen them make toys of have either been by cheap companies and were odd looking, not to mention put together very poorly, or model kits that only give you two options. (Sword Man and Tengu Man for the anniversary model kits). It has me wondering why the companies who actually know what they are doing haven't made villains to go with our heroes yet.
Sure, I love Mega Man, Proto Man, X and Zero, but I have bought nearly every incarnation of each of them, and I can only pose X and Zero fist bumping or back-to-back so many times before I feel I need a bit more variety. Don't you think it would be cool to at least have a Cut Man, or a Launch Octopus sitting on your desk with your other figures?
I personally would adore a Storm Eagle, hell, I would even take Flame Hyenard (For those of you who don't remember him, let me refresh your memory. BURN! BURN TO THE GROUND!) if it meant I could have something other than the standard two they keep re producing.
What figures would you like to see made, whether they are villains of any series or not?

I would also like to see Bandai do a Bass.

Gate would make an awesome figure... He looks just so... TOY-able. and he's shiny too.
With D Arts, that might just be a possibility.
