Hey, remember that super sweet replica Proto Man helmet by Multiverse Studio? Yeah, it's no more.
According to an invoice from the Capcom Store, the helmet is officially cancelled. Anyone who pre-ordered the helmet directly from Capcom should have, or will soon receive the following message:
Capcom cites "manufacturing issues" for the reason behind cancellation. It's an unfortunate situation, one further soured by the impending holidays. Let's be real, the helmet would have made a great gift for your local Proto Man fans.
I initially hoped the cancellation was limited to just the Capcom Store, but Entertainment Earth's orders have followed suit. If I hear anything else, I'll let you know.
Thanks to AWD for the tip!
