The Mr. Masters

The Mr. Masters

The Mr. Masters

by Steve Napierski to Comics

So I got the idea of mixing the robot masters from the original Mega Man series with The Mr. Men children’s book/cartoon series. Instead of Cut Man you get Mr. Cut, instead of Guts Man you get Mr. Guts and so forth… I decided to do the “first” eight (8) robot masters in this amalgam format. It was fun to do and was fun to take the names of some of the characters in different direction from their original intent.

Personally, I’d love to do a poster with all eighty (80) robot masters done in the Mr. Men format. But that’s up to you guys whether there would be a demand for something like that. If a poster containing all eighty (80) Mr. Masters would be something you guys would be interested in leave a comment below or drop me a line.

Otherwise, I will see you on Thursday.

    Oh man, I haven’t thought of Mr Men is almost a decade. I loved those books as a little kid.

    Nice work Steve.

    Ehh… 80 Mr. Masters would take you a long time… valuable time that could be spent coming up with more game-a-licious jokes… so I’m gonna have to put my two cents in as ‘nah, pass on the poster.’

    Excellent job. This is one of the kinds of things I like to see from you. I’d love to see more of the original Megaman Robots to be rendered in this style. Keep it up.

    And yeah, a poster sounds inviting as well.

    While I’d love to see you do the entire collection of Mr Masters I don’t think I’d pick up a poster. :(

    @mikeszekely You’re right. If I’m going to include Oil Man and Time Man from Mega Man Powered Up then I need to include all the robot masters from Rockman and Forte as well.

    I’d prefer the companion poster to the one I already own: rejected Mr. Men villains. That’d be absolutely hilarious!

    I was not impressed by this sampling at all. I doubt another 70 of them would be any better.

    I’d love to see all of the robot masters as Mr. Men. I was hooked on the books when I was young, and I even watch the show that’s on now, even though I’m well outside the target age for it XD

    Technically, it’d be 79 Mr. Master and one Little Miss Splash.

    Anyway, I’d like to see more.
