New Catalog: Mego Spring `1980

1980 was an ambitious year for the World’s Greatest Toy Company as this Spring supplemental catalog showcases.

The Mego Mad Monsters Mystery Bendys

  We’ve mentioned these guys before but seeing as we didn’t get much insight and it’s almost Halloween, what better time to reintroduce them and perhaps get some pieces to the puzzle.

Mego Elastic Hulk Ad

This giant sized Trade advertisement from 1979 celebrates Mego combining stretch toys with the Superheroes licensing. Pretty inspired and something that has been repeated through the decades. Unfortunately, Kenner (purveyors of the Stretch Armstrong line of toys) believed the “big idea” the Mego stretched was theirs and promptly sued.     Many former Mego executives…
