Watch the entire 90’s “Mega Man” Cartoon Show For FREE

Growing up in the 1990s was a great time for cartoons. You could enjoy all the hits from the ’80’s along with all the new shows from the times. Saturday mornings were the best mornings, while Sundays were usually solid but not quite as good. However, it was those days, as well as weekday early morning syndicated shows before school started that really stuck with us.

One show that a lot of folks remember today was the Mega Man cartoon from Ruby-Spears. Also made by Ashi Productions and Ocean Productions (with Capcom of course), this cartoon was pretty cheesy, even for its era. The theme song will get stuck in your head, but I don’t know if that’s a good thing or not. Still, it was a fun show and if you are a Mega Man mega fan, you should be watching this!

Check out the series premiere video below to get you started:

The first episode of Mega Man sees Dr. Wily attack New York’s Kennedy Airport and Mega Man is crushed by a falling object, leaving him in need of repair. While Mega Man is being fixed, Dr. Light reveals his past history working with Dr. Wily and how it led to the events that happened that day.

From there, Dr. Wily builds his evil robots and we are off to the races!

It ran from 1994 to 1995 in syndication in the US. The show only lasted 23 episodes, but it does include some references to Mega Man X, the more current game of the time.

THE LOYAL SUBJECTS LAUNCHES STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP WITH BANDAI

The Loyal Subjects™ (TLS) – a collectible toy company – is excited to announce the launch of a partnership with Bandai America which will turbo-charge TLS’ expansion across the retail landscape.

TLS’ signature Action Vinyls™ are a hybrid comingling of stylized features, artful and detailed deco from the Designer/Art Toy/Vinyl world, and the pose-able dexterity found in Action Figures; hence “Action Vinyls” – a cool “Vinyl-like” collectible with “Action” in the form of pose-ability and accessories. The figures stand at about 3.25”, have up to 15 points of articulation, are accompanied by a collector card, and have interchangeable accessories. TLS pays homage to its collector base by including rare figures and “Easter eggs” in its product lines.

TLS is a Universe Without Borders™. From the first Action Vinyls offering, TLS’ vision has been to create a world with no rules, just synergistic fun and collaborative
comingling. So an accessory from He-Man™ can also fit the hands of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles™, and a hero from Megaman™ can battle a villain from Thundercats™ – the walls have been torn down, and the inmates have taken over! Not all collectible figures are treated equal, unless they’re from TLS. TLS has sold millions of units worldwide and Action Vinyls are a toy industry disruptor.

“TLS and Bandai truly believe we can build a $100 million dollar brand together,” said Jonathan Cathey, The Loyal Subjects’ Founder/CEO and President. “All the key ingredients are there – quality, fun, accessibility, story-telling, creativity, and artful execution. We are seeing an increasing desire to join the TLS mission by collectors from all corners of the globe, and an explosive interest in the application of pop culture to the TLS army building experience. It’s a perfect recipe, and we look forward to building significantly at retail to showcase our unique, beloved, and killer quality format – Action Vinyls. With the Bandai and TLS partnership, sky’s the limit.”

Added Michael Ciminera, Bandai America’s Senior Vice President, Sales, “Vinyl collectables is a huge growth category in the industry right now. We believe TLS brings a unique product to the market with their Action Vinyls and robust licensing line up. We are thrilled to be able to help grow this brand at retail.”

TLS is stacked with a wide range of popular and evergreen licenses crossing all genres: Anime, TV, Movie, Super Hero, Classic and Nostalgia, Horror, Fantasy, Cartoons, Video Game, Mobile Game, and Action Adventure. TLS is set to release a variety of offerings each quarter, including online and convention exclusives. TLS products are currently sold in a wide range of retailers including Hot Topic, GameStop, Target, Walmart, Box Lunch, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, FYE, 7-Eleven, Walgreens, and independent toy, hobby and comic book stores.

The Loyal Subjects announces 2018 mini-figure lineup at NY Toy Fair

The Loyal Subjects (TLS)is bringing its World Without Borders to the Big Apple during the upcoming annual North American International Toy Fair February 17-20. The company will preview its exciting 2018 product line-up in booth #6665, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City.

Not all collectible figures are treated equal, unless they’re from TLS. The company creates collectible three and a quarter inch (3.25”) stylized Action Vinyls (AV), highly detailed, poseable figures that are like nothing else on the market. Action Vinyls lines feature fine-tuned elements, including 12 points of articulation – making them hyper-poseable – plus great sculpt and paint details. AV figures include accessories and collector cards, and many AV lines are packaged in a blind box format with rare chase figures, all for an approximate retail price of $12.99 each. Small figures that PLAY BIG!

All this attention to detail with Action Vinyls styling enables deeper play experiences with dynamic interaction among figures from different lines. In the TLS Universe it makes perfect sense for Skeletor to take on the Red Ranger or have Raphael (TMNT) battle Vegeta – it’s action figures in “Super Smash Bros” style! Having a uniform size and style plus interchangeable accessories across AV lines makes the worlds blend seamlessly.

“The uniqueness of our Action Vinyls is that there are no borders within the TLS Universe. We give the controls back to the collector, so they’re in charge of their own story, their own army building/capture the flag campaign. The power of TLS Action Vinyls are the story telling capabilities inherent in a highly detailed, poseable collectible. We provide that little spark to the collector’s imagination and watch that fire ignite when the collectors go knee deep into their stories. It’s magical!,” noted Jonathan Cathey, The Loyal Subjects Founder/CEO and President. “We are driven by consumer passion. We hear time-and-time again that The Loyal Subjects collectibles are drivers for a more enhanced, fulfilled customer experience. It’s like the “Indian in the Cupboard” – our figures spring to life! Collectors become their own screenwriters, producers, actors, and directors of their own show and that’s really powerful!”

The Loyal Subjects is an emerging brand that is thriving at big box retailers, such as Walmart and Target, and is also formidable on specialty store shelves, including Hot Topic, GameStop, and Toys“R”Us. The company has sold more than 2MM Action Vinyls collectible figures since its first AV release in 2012. TLS has enjoyed rapid expansion over the past couple of years as it moved to the “main stage,” propelled by a growing base of passionate collectors who are known to drive hundreds of miles to visit many stores in order to load up on TLS AV figures.

The 2018 Action Vinyls product line-up from The Loyal Subjects include:
· Mega Man: Available now at mass market and specialty retail locations
· ThunderCats: Available now at mass market and specialty retail locations
· Horror: featuring characters from It, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, and The Exorcist: Available May 2018
· Aliens: Available May 2018
· Predator 2: Available June 2018
· WWE: Available June 2018
· Game of Thrones: Available July 2018
· Gudetama: Available July 2018
· Nickelodeon ‘90s Splat!: Available July 2018
· Ghostbusters: Available September 2018
· One Punch Man: Available November 2018
· Naruto: Available November 2018

TLS pays homage to the collector base by offering branded scarcity items and “Easter eggs.” Club 28™ is a very limited edition of 28 figures included in an AV line! Aftermarket values on a single Club 28 figure can swell into thousands of dollars. These scarce products are stamped with a “28” to commemorate the edition. Additionally, in its retailer-exclusive editions of each AV line, the company produces a single Gold figure stamped with the retailer name (i.e. Walmart’s Gold figure has a “WM” stamp, Hot Topic “HT”, Toys”R”Us “TRU”, Target “TG”). These figures are a collector’s “Holy Grail,” with some Gold figures trading between collectors for upwards of $5,000.

Expect more coverage of TLS later this week after we visit their booth during NY Toy Fair 2018!
