Candy toys are toys packaged with candy (who'd have thought?), sold this way to bypass the taxes and regulations normally applied to toys [src].
Bomberman tie-ins range from simple action-feature toys, scaled-down B-Daman kits, to exclusive figurines of obscure characters! Most candy toys are unpainted (despite what the packaging suggests!), and are very rare on the secondary market. This is by no means a complete list, only the series that I'm aware of.

Items are ordered by year of release. Unless otherwise stated, all products are by Kabaya (カバヤ).

Released in January 1995 [src] (but dated 1994 on the packaging) with some type of candy, sold for 100 Yen. Each box contains a snap-together model kit of a spring-loaded bomb, a small unpainted Bomberman to fit inside, and a sticker sheet for decorating the bomb and Bomberman. When the Bomberman is pressed down into the fuse chamber on top, it is sprung out again.

Bombermen came in White, Black, Red or Golden variants.

Short for Bomberman Deluxe (ボンバーマンデラックス). Each box sold for 300 Yen contains candy-coated chocolates and two pre-painted figures. Two series of figures were released under this banner:

Super Bomberman 3

Released in October 1995 [src]. A tie-in to Super Bomberman 3, includes a Bomberman and a member of the Five Dastardly Bombers (minus Brain Bomber). The Five Dastardly Bomber figures are one static piece, while the Bomberman figures must be assembled.

Super Bomberman 4

Released in September 1996 [src]. A tie-in to Super Bomberman 4, includes a Bomberman and a member of the Bomber Shitennou (thogh Lady Bomber is absent). The Bomber Shitennou toys come with basic action features: Hammer Bomber's wrecking ball can shoot out on a string, Jet Bomber's head can tilt upwards to simulate flying, Bazooka Bomber can fire a projectile, and Great Bomber can hold a bomb in his hand. The figures stand 6.5cm tall and feature swivel articulation in the shoulders, neck and feet.
