While not official news, per se, a close and reliable source of mine sends word that Jazwares is gearing up to finally release the long awaited second line of Retro Roto Mega Man figures. Wave 2 will consist of Heat Man, Wood Man, Dr. Wily, and Ice Man. Check out a small sampling of the figures' newest glamor shots below!
Wave 2 was originally scheduled for release some five years ago, but due to a few snags in the road, the figures never surfaced publicly. We don't have an exact release date, but according to my source, Wave 2 -- and a heaping pile of other Jazwares products -- are due out any time between Fall 2011 and the Summer of 2012. That's a pretty big release window, but I'm told things will become a little more precise in the near future.
The first wave of Retro Rotos were recently re-released later last year, and continue to be sold at a variety of retailers such as Toys R Us and Target. While they continue to be sold, my source indicates Wave 2 will eventual phase out all wave 1figures... except for Mega Man, the supposed hot seller of the lot.
More news as it comes!
