Kid Robot Mega Man Figures Delayed, Minis Cancelled
What happened to Kid Robot's Mega Man figures that were supposed to be available in September? According to a customer service representative, the 7-inch Mega Man and Proto Man figures have been pushed back into mid 2015. The pair remain up for pre-order on Big Bad Toystore.
As for the mini figures - the blind box series and keychains - it appears they've been given the ax. BC Direct points us to a message from figure vendor MyPlasticHeart, confirming the cancellation of both miniature lines. This was posted back in July but the statement still stands. For the uninitiated, Kid Robot has been struggling financially; whole lines are being cut, this way and that.
On the upside, someone posted a nice teaser image of a previously unannounced 7-inch Break Man figure. No word if it will ever see the light of day, but the prospect exists. When was the last time Break Man had a figure?
Thanks to BC Direct for the tip!
