OK…I’ll admit it. I never owned an original Nintendo system…not even Super Nintendo. I went from the Sega Master System to Sega Genesis. We had Wonder Boy and Alex Kid…not that memorable. At the same time, Nintendo had about 50 versions of the Mega Man console game available.
Jazwares had acquired the Mega Man license a few years ago. They began producing 3, 6 and 10-inch plastic figures of characters from the very popular video game series. While the 6 and 10-inch lines were more “action figure” based, the 3-inch line satisfied collectors looking for mini figures.
Jazwares has recently launched their Retro Roto Mega Man line. The only similarity between these and their other Mega Man lines is the characters. This line is made of rotocast vinyl, which in basic terms means: a mold is made, spun very quickly and plastic is injected into the mold – making the figure hollow.
