Another fave of mine, the Buck Rogers line.
In an effort to combat post holiday blahs, we're going to post some new Mego videos all this week, starting with these two commercials. The above commercial for the Mego Star Trek the Motion Picture ship line of toys (which are quite rare) and the below ad for the mega rare Micronaut vehicles Ampzilla, Sharkos and Lobstros. Enjoy!
Recently, we at the Museum were lucky to be contacted by Mr. Harvey Zelman, former product manager for Mego, who was game to share his experiences. Mr. Zelman had his hand in much of Mego's output during his six year tenure and he answered many nagging Mego collector questions (Like why are the Flash Gordon figures 10 inches tall?)
It doesn't end with Mego. Harvey is also the man responsible for a pop culture phenomenon, read for yourself.
Today's update was submitted by Gerhard, a gallery of Italian ads for the Mego Black Hole line. Many of the products GIG marketed were European only not to mention very cool, so check it out.
I think Scott describes this card better than I could: We've come in on the epilogue after the fight with the Andorian. It's as classic a Star Trek moment as they come: Kirk triumphant and smug, Spock and McCoy trading humorous barbs about Vulcan logic, cue music and closing credits...
For information on how you can receive a free set of Mego Museum Star Trek trading cards, send an email to tradingcards to get on the mailing list! We will notify you when the cards are ready to go. Keep checking in this month for more views of the upcoming card set.
Todd does Hawkman a little Mego Justice with this wonderful custom.
Updates continue with the Mego Talos card, the diminutive alien wouldn't look right fighting Kirk so Scott whipped up this very cool dramatic scene complete with "trek lighting".
Custom Spotlight goes to BlackKnights wonderful rendition of Polaris from the X Men, it's amazing the custom output recently.......

Mego Star Trek Aliens cards roll out beginning with the uber fun Cheron card. Mr Spock shows Bele who's boss on this star ship.
The Custom Spotlight goes to Austin's Reb Brown Captain America, a sweet bit of 70's TV cheese.
Also check out JMC's golden Age Hawkman, from the "All Star Squadron" comic, pretty sweet.
We're unveiling the aliens this week with the ultimate Trek baddie, The Klingon. Scott has played a little with the format and wow, I'm glad he has. As he puts it "the Aliens exist for one reason: So Kirk could have someone to kick in the ass." Check it out here.
Please Santa: Alberto has just completed this killer Spider-woman custom. Color me jealous....
Friend....Goooooood! Also check out this cool Bride of Frankenstein diorama by Thomas.
Another addition to our Christmas Wishbook section, this time it's the Mego Waltons/Wizard of OZ offerings from JC Penney in 1975.
Pop Culture Customs
"Teany Weeny Super Beanie pointing towards the sky, give me muscles, power, strength, make me a super guy" I'm loving Todd's treatment of the Archie Superheroes.
Austin brings in the 70's TV goodness with his Reb Brown as Captain America custom, love it!
Saturday's update is the lovely Mego Lt. Uhura card, completing our bridge crew. The cards actually line up together, check it out.
Cool customs are all over the place as evidenced by this beautiful Wolverine figure.
More updates tomorrow! Visit us at www.megomuseum.com
Austin really made this smashing version of Flash villian the Trickster recently, very nice!
Massive Spider-man 3 Spoilers can be found here.
Speaking of Spider-man, we're discussing the new Hasbro 9" Spiderman figures , the reviews are positive!
That header wrote itself. Continuing our "Mego Advent Calendar" we have a new addition to our family of Mego Star Trek cards, this time it's none other than ship's surgeon and country doctor, Leonard "Bones" McCoy.. Please tell us your thoughts at the Mego Forum.
Topic of Mego Interest:
The Mego Traveller is going around the world, track his progress.
A nice tale about friends and of course an amazing find of Mego.
A cool update to the advent calendar today, shots of a carded GIG Magnetic Batman. For those not in the know, lucky European kids got Superheroes that had the same features as the Micronauts . Carded examples are few and far between so we're excited to be able to feature this.
You really can't have Kirk without Spock so today's Mego Museum Trading Card reveal is a real no brainer. Personally, I think Scott has done another outstanding job of capturing the essence of what the figure is about but judge for yourself.

If that wasn't enough......
