We're on a bit of a roll with all this rare and unseen Mega Man animation history lately. And tonight, for your viewing pleasure, we have the complete Ruby-Spears Mega Man press kits from 1994 to 1995. Check 'em out here. That's 22-pages of grade-A, Ruby-Spears cheese.
So yeah; these materials have gone unseen for a good 26-years. They were originally distributed to different television networks in the mid-nineties. Each sheet was meticulously designed to help sell the cartoon -- that is, to entice networks into airing Mega Man and establish a quid pro quo. The show drives network ratings up, and those ratings translate to game and toy sales. Bada bing bada boom.
The press kits also contain unrealized licensing and merchandise deals (a comic book from Bruce Hamilton!) and some pretty uncommon key art, too. I mean, just look at Mega Man's fleshy hand and whatever is going on with Cut Man's face up there. These unpolished designs appeared during a few commercial bumpers, actually. Interesting stuff.
Anyway, we hope enjoy this little slice of Ruby-Spears history! The press kits were donated by @ForcedUserX!
