Like many animated series, the Ruby-Spears Mega Man TV show had its own merchandise, including action figures, soundtracks, and more. Though most of the merchandise in this article has long since been out of production, they can still be found on auction sites such as eBay.

Action figures

These figures were released around early 1995 and were produced by Bandai America. Because Mega Man could take other robot's weapons, all figures (except for Rush) had a "weapon" that could be fired out of from the Plasma Cannons of either Mega Man or Proto Man, from the launchers of other characters, and from the Air Raider's missile launcher.

Series 1

The first series consisted of six figures. This series assortment number is 2711. Four figures were re-released as part of series 2. The original release and re-release can be told apart by their package, series 1 lacking the character's name and the item number in the front while series 2 included those details, and each has their respective series listed in the back.

PVC figures

Around the same time of the release of the action figures, Bandai released sets of small non-poseable plastic figures that were roughly two inches tall. These figures came in sets of two. Mega Man's figure is the same for all three sets he appears. This line's assortment number is 2710.

Canceled toy lines

When the show was cancelled, the toy line followed with it, leaving several toys unproduced.[1][2]

  • Three figures of Mega Man with the suits he used in season 2: Stealth Mega Man, Sky Mega Man, and Dive Mega Man.[2]
  • Two vehicles were set to be produced. The first was the Land Blazer that was featured a few times in Season 2.[2] The other vehicle was Dr. Wily's Skullker, which would have included an action figure of Dr. Wily himself.[Citation needed]
  • A tall deluxe Mega Man figure (Item #2728) with a light-up Mega Buster with sound was also in the works.[2][3]
  • More PVC figures were in the works.[Citation needed]

Other merchandise

  • Ja-Ru released some Mega Man toys.
  • ADV Films has released two DVD box sets of both seasons of the show which are still available in stores.
  • Four VHS tapes with two episodes each were released during the cartoon's run, but are now out of production:

  • "Mega Man - Mega Man", a 1996 EP on 12" vinyl and CD of the German dub's opening, released by CNR music and distributed by Floto. The four tracks were each remixes attributed to different DJs, with the "Radio version" coming the closest to the one used in TV airings. Unlike the original opening, this EP consists of only electronic music ranging from eurodance to hardcore. While the Vinyl release comes in a standard Sleeve of CNR and the label only reads credits, the CD's Jewel case features an Image of Mega Man on the front and a copyright note crediting Capcom on the back. The Main track, "Mega Man (Radio version)" was produced by Robert Borrmann, the collective of DJs and producers involved carries the artist name "Mega Man", leading to the redundant name.
    This EP is out of print as well.[4]
  • A Halloween costume of the cartoon Mega Man was released back while the cartoon was running, but is now out of production and hard to find.[5]
  • A study kit containing a pencil pouch, sharpener, eraser and ruler.

  • The Bomb Man action figure was pulled from store shelves shortly after the Oklahoma City office bombing before the start of the second season.[6]
  • Guts Man's action figure had a brick instead of a fire hydrant in the TV commercial. [7]
