Mego Figures

Post by Uncle Tony on Fri May 17, 2013 6:21 am

In 1976, David Abrams rejected a deal to license toys for the upcoming motion picture Star Wars

Following Star Wars' great success, Mego negotiated the licenses for the manufacturing rights to any and all potentially successful science fiction motion picture and television shows, in hopes of finding a similar hot property.

They produced 12½ inch figures for Moonraker, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, The Black Hole, Star Trek: The Motion Picture. None of these were as successful as Kenner's Star Wars products, although they were of much higher quality than Kenner's unsuccessful 12" figures.

In 1982 Mego filed for bankruptcy, and by 1983, the Mego Corporation ceased to exist under that name and is now known as Abrams Gentile Entertainment LLC.

I never had any Mego figures as a kid, but looking at this line-up I think I would have enjoyed playing with them.

Mego Figures

Post by lalo133 on Wed Jul 17, 2013 8:25 pm




... Rolling Eyes I love these figures Mego. Because scale is 1/10. And they are the same scale as Figure Madelman. Also scale 1/10. Supplements are supported both figures. But what I like most about the Mego figures, is the version of LION ROCK. It is a collection of Mego figures in armies of WWII. I also like the figures of the "Planet of the Apes" and "star trek" ... the series of figures of the "Far West" .. ect ...
On my website, there are figures and figures Mego Madelman. But, they are so personalized that you can not recognize them.
Sincerely... Jorge. Wink
