Ruby-Spears Action Figure Retrospective

The Video Game Memorabilia Museum, a sort of nirvana of geekish delights, has taken a look back at the toys based off of the Ruby-Spears Mega Man animated series. Every toy from the mini-figure line is featured, each with their own respective bit of commentary. Kick back, grab those nostalgia goggles, and have a watch!

Huh, never knew that about Bomb Man. Wonder how much he's worth these days? I've got the mini-figure lying around here somewhere...

These toys bring back a lot of fond memories. Firstly, they were some of the earliest pieces of Mega Man memorabilia I ever bought as a child, and second, when not playing Mega Man games, I was duking it out with these guys! Not very articulate, yes, but that's where imagination came in.


  1. While very interesting, I can't really watch videos from collectors without asking every time, how the hell could they accumulate THAT much stuff. I'm talking collectors of everything, not a specific series or genre. It's like they don't have a single bill/payment in life to worry about, lol. Ridiculous really, but still, interesting. I have the MegaMan figure in this mini-line though. I still think they're really awesome and wholesome figures, all the TV show figures. I knew of the Bomb Man issue...and thanks to that, try winning a figure on eBay! XD

  2. Whoa! I didn't know about the Bombman thing, I've got the slightly bigger one! :D

  3. Oh I remember those mini-figures! My brother has most of them except for Proto Man, Roll, Bomb Man and Guts Man and Dr. Wily. I had an opportunity to by a few of them a couple years ago at a flea market type thing, but they were in pretty terrible shape.

  4. I loved those damn toys. Played with them all the time. I was a hyper little monkey when I opened up the Mega Man figure for my 6th birthday... damn good times. God I miss childhood.

  5. Aww, never had any of those figures. I remember seeing them in Toys R Us though, wish I'd picked them up instead of the X-Men figures :(

    Also, where'd that Boss Intro remake come from? That remix was tight.
