Collector Shows Off Unreleased Mega Man Figures

You remember those canceled Jazwares Mega Man figures, don't you?  Well, one lucky fellow managed to grab a hold of a few prototypes, and is showing them off in the following video.  Items showcased include unreleased Knight Man, Mega Man Volnutt, Pantheon figures and a slew of smaller toys from a canceled "mini-mates" series:




Anyone else feeling a bit jealous?

Thanks to Devan for the tip.

  1. I like how this guy actually explains some of the history behind the figures, rather than the expected massive amounts of bragging about the collection.

  2. Lucky sonofagun. I want Knight Man. :( Quick Man too, for that matter. But I'm fairly certain that one's been released.

  3. Jealous? *watches the dark room with walls of unopened figurines*

    ...not really.

    The pantheon is cool, though.

  4. Honestly, I probably wouldn't have gotten any of them. Jazwarez screwed up big time with the MM toys. The Retro Roto figures were probably their best line, but even they were far too big nd would have benefited from being smaller and being released as a two pack.

  5. Doesn't that guy know that isn't Gate, that's Dynamo next to Axl :P

    Still pretty cool finds though, and I'll love to of have Knight Man!

  6. Jealous, not really. I never was into collecting figurines, or at least none of those US brands, they don't look that great.
    I wouldn't mind some of those assemble kits from those Japanese toys shows though, Like Zero, Harpuia and Phantom

  7. Honestly, the only ones from that collection that looked any good, in my opinion, was the Rock Volnutt and KnightMan figures at the beginning.

    I dunno, I was always a DASH fan and always wanted a non-Model Kit figure of Rock.

  9. Knight Man should have definitely been released. As well as Voulnutt and others. Wouldnt mind the bobble head looking figures. I bet he does feel lucky. He seems very modest and humble, but we all know that the very action of uploading the video is his prime means of bragging. He is rather a turd, but seems to be a nice and knowledgable guy, eh?

  10. The "Minimates" ones he has are not prototypes or test shots, they are customs (from who I dunno). Capcom did have a licensing set up with Art Asylum for their various properties but Megaman/Rockman was not one of them. I hope he didn't pay a lot for them because they are 100% fake. I hope that will help him understand why they are so "fragile".

  11. @MegaMac: The bobbleheads he had there weren't all that rare and were for sale at retail at one point. They were originally 15th Anniversary giveaway items, mostly from Gamestop and similar stores, when you pre-ordered...X7 I think it was. They did end up selling some on top of that, and today you can still find them on eBay pretty easily.

    I admit the Knight Man and Trigger ones did look better than most Jazwares figures of that era, but the guy is missing the coolest ones from that unreleased wave: Sigma and the Mega vs. Air Man statue. Now those figures would be worth bragging about! LOL

    I havent seen them on eBay that much, if at all. I bet the fans they belong to are clinging to them for dear life, lol. I agree with you there about Sigma and the statue. Sigma looked great and the statue looked well articulated. They would have made a fortune due to the Airman fandom abound. ;)
