Back around 1996 when China ran out of Japanese Rockman Carddas cards to import, they decided to make some of their own. Collectible card kingpin Adali took images from Shigeto Ikehara’s popular Rockman mangas (most of which had been released in China already), colored them, slapped some holographic foil on there and ba-da-boom, you’ve got a new cash crop. Now fans could revisit their favorite manga scenes in bright surrealistic color.
The few of these I’ve managed to acquire come from the manga adaptations of Rockman (the first game), Rockman World (1 & 2),and Rockman World 3. Enjoy the adventures of Rockman, Dr. Right, Dr. Wily, Blues, Rush, and Rell! (Dr. Right, Blues, and “Rell” not shown.)
For comparison, let’s look at the card first and the original scene from the manga second. We’ll be going in the numbered order given on the 8 cards. I have no idea what the “P10000”, etc. values or the “R, G, B, C…” letters are for.
That’s all I have from the classic Rockman set, but there’s more to come with the Irregular Hunter Rockman X set. I’d love to get my hands on more of these, but they seem pretty rare to come by these days. Hope you enjoyed.
