Mego Dolls/Figures

Post by Uncle Tony on Fri May 17, 2013 6:16 am

The Mego Corporation was a toy company that dominated the action figure toy market during most of the 1970s.

Starting in 1971, Under the direction of David Abram's son Martin, Mego began purchasing license rights to a variety of successful motion pictures, television programs, and comic books, and started producing lines for Planet of the Apes, Star Trek, and the Wizard of Oz.

One of the secrets of Mego's success was that their action figures were constructed with interchangeable bodies. Generic bodies could be mass produced and different figures created by interposing different heads and costumes on them. Mego also constructed their figures primarily in an 8-inch (200 mm) scale - setting an industry standard in the 1970s.

I didn't have any Mego dolls growing up, but by the looks of them I would have had a great time playing with some!
