Canceled Jazwares Toys

Capcom's partnership with Jazwares was a match made in heaven. From the action figure line and playsets, to the Retro Rotos, Jazwares undoubtedly produced the best Mega Man toys in the West; and yet, some of their best work never made it to store shelves.

Over at Figures.com, you can check out a gallery of unreleased Mega Man toys formerly featured at the 2004 - 2006 Toy Shows. Pictured here are two canceled figures from a planned Battle & Chase line up, originally slatted to hit stores shelves sometime in 2004.

Other canceled products of note include a battle damaged Mega Man, a Pantheon, Mega Man Volnutt, and a prop Mega Man X helmet. For more canceled/unreleased toys, check out the following galleries:

  2. Hey I've seen that X buster on ebay whenever I put two NT busters up on ebay. Talk about piggy backing

  3. The X Buster was not canceled. I had one before I donated it to my little brothers.

  4. I'm itching to find that X Buster myself, but I haven't seen it on Ebay in a while.

  6. Am I the only one who thinks that the Rockman X helmet could have been very useful for cosplaying? XD

  7. I really would've loved the Battle & Chase figures, i love that game. I feel so cheated that i can't have Sonic Formula (Quickman's car)

  8. I remember the New York show in 2006 me and Daniel "Protoman" Arseneault went to that one and flipped out when we saw the PVC figures. It's a shame the Battle n Chase stuff never happened.

  9. If I remember correctly, the battle damaged figure and multi-colored Mega Men weren't ever planned for actual production, but were just something they did for fun.

  10. Wow, that pisses me off! Those are some damn sweet toys/figures - it just seems like they canceled the awesome ones X_X But, if you're hard-core, you might be able to find one somewhere if you're willing to pay for them...
