insights_and_review

icon_heroes_jackalmanBoth Jaga and Jackalman were listed for sale on Feb 2, 2011 and went up on the shopafx.com website for pre-orders. They were expected to be shipped in Q3 of 2011, but were sadly cancelled. The figures were 6 inches tall, allowing you to display them amongst your action figure collectibles.

Jackalman was to be second in a series of polyresin statues. He was originally shown as a polyresin statue on a sculpted Egyptian ruins base (see left). That prototype was then shown on a smaller dark cobblestone environment base similar to Lion-O’s, at San Francisco Comic Con in 2010.

That version of Jackalman was dropped in favour of a more affordable PVC series which had the benefit of allowing for interchangeable parts. The PVC version of Jackalman was to come with two interchangeable arms, one with the mace that we see Jackalman use in the cartoon, and one with the club weapon that came with the 1980s LJN action figure.

This was the only Classic style Jackalman that we saw a prototype for, none of the other companies produced a Classic Jackalman figure toy or statue. He was made to be cartoon accurate, in the words from the listing: “With a cartoon accurate sculpt, Jaga pops right out of the animation cell into your collection!”

It is a shame that Icon Heroes cancelled this, and the Jaga figure, as they were really hitting their stride with the quality and detail.
