When Capcom unleashed Mega Man on the Nintendo Entertainment System they easily created one of the longest gaming series as well as a lasting icon. On various and multiple consoles across the World – the Blue Bomber – has been featured in over 50 games since 1987.
Mondo has a little something to help fans of the Mega Man series show off their devotion to the character with three enamel pins that are available for pre-order. Besides the Mega Man 1-Up icon, you also can pick up an energy tank pin and one of Mega Man jumping – all three designed by artist Jay Shaw!
By the way, the reason that Mega Man was nicknamed the Blue Bomber is thanks to Nintendo Power.
They jokingly applied that nickname to the character as a nod to Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots – the blue robotic boxer’s name is the Blue Bomber. Readers of the magazine just kind of started using the nickname and before you knew it – Capcom started using it as well!
Now perhaps Mondo can do something about the catchy theme and intro I have stuck in my head from the Mega Man animated series!
