Toymaker Mezco Toyz was planning to release LittleBigPlanet licensed action figures this year, in sizes ranging from 2" to 18", along with sundry other Sackboy and Sackgirl themed things. Not anymore, as the product line has been scrapped.
According to customer notifications from retailers like BigBadToyStore, Mezco Toyz has nixed plans for a LittleBigPlanet action figure assault. Retailers have canceled pre-orders and Mezco has removed previous listings for LittleBigPlanet toys and accessories from its official web site.
When we contacted Mezco, reps confirmed that anything and everything planned for LittleBigPlanet from the company had been canceled. When asked why, reps told Kotaku, "We can't comment on that." A quick look at the company's web site shows that almost nothing LBP-related remains.
Mezco had planned for plenty of LittleBigPlanet content, including retailer-exclusive figures, zipper pulls, and even blank Sackboys that consumers could customize themselves. We're not sure why the product line was canceled (yet), but have to wonder if the quality of the initial offerings, which didn't look so spectacular, had something to do with it.
Thanks to Shahad for the shout!
