Fans of the 1973 TV series Meteor Man Zone haven’t had many chances to collect merchandise in recent years, and hopes were raised when Evolution Toy added an articulated figure of the show’s hero Zone Fighter to their Full Puni! figure series roster.
Then… nothing. A year after preorders went up, there was still no figure. Word went out today that the toy had been cancelled, but they have a newer prototype in the works:
The new figure will have different proportions, and more articulation (look at the toes). Price has gone up from 4286 yen to 5480, and the figure is now set for release in October. Look for it at your Japanese toy importer of choice, and keep an eye out for their Iron King figure that’s due a month later.
