Pew! Pew! Looking Back at Jazwares' X-Buster Toy
Nightram56 of the Video Game Memorabilia Museum (a nirvana of video game goodies and trinkets) shows off the elusive Mega Man X X-Buster toy from Jazwares. The product is notorious for its poor distribution throughout North America, making it one of, if not the rarest Mega Man product produced by Jazwares.
Aside from glaring packaging inconsistencies, the product itself seems pretty sturdy. Maybe not as high quality as Mattel's similar NT Warrior Mega Buster toy, but it gets the job done. And to answer Nightram56's closing inquiry, yes: Jazwares was working on a classic series variant, seen here. Concurrently, a MMX roleplay helmet was also on the burner. Nothing became of them, however.
The X-Buster is as rare as they come, so the best advice I can give is keep a close eye on Ebay. Best of luck!
