Up Close: The Punisher by Diamond Select Toys

Mego Museum Photo Review Unboxing of the Punisher set by Diamond Select Toys

It’s been entirely too long since we’ve done an “Up Close” photo review/unboxing of a shiny new ReMego toy set. That’s why the arrival of the Punisher set by Diamond Select Toys is so welcome this summer. Originally promoted last year, this set has been highly anticipated by fans. Although he was a product of…

German Mego Comic Action Hero Ads

Ever since the discovery of this “Comic Super Helden” three pack there has been some curiosity as to how much of the line was marketed to the German market. Well, thanks to a generous submission by our new friend Maria, we have some answers and beautiful ads.  Maria shared these ads which appeared in German…

New Discovery! The Incredible BASA Hulk!

This photo is courtesy of our friends at Heroes West Coast and used with permission. Another wonderful surprise at last month’s Mego Meet was the discovery that the Mego 12″ Hulk was manufactured and sold by BASA of Peru.

Original Mego Artwork: Dukes of Hazzard

New Mego Thundarr Discovery

Thundarr King Rat

The never produced Mego Thundarr the Barbarian toy line is usually in the top five of Mego fans wish lists along with “Logan’s Run“, “Ark 2” and the “Greatest American Hero” lines (Not many people mourn “Dallas” sorry). So we at the Mego Museum love any information about Thundarr we can get. That is why…

The Amazing Mego Meet Customs Display

Another absolute highlight of the 2017 Mego Meet convention was the incredible display of Austin’s collection of his custom Mego creations. We sat down with him and talked about his collection and creating custom Mego figures in general for this video. Look for a gallery of photos later this week.

1979 Palitoy Bradgate Catalog added to the Library

Fun new addition to our growing catalog library. 1979 would be the final year for Palitoy and the World’s Greatest Superheroes (and sadly all 8″ product) but they still added another new character in their final year. Check out the 1979 Palitoy Catalog Here. Discuss this find on the Mego Museum Forum. Now Available Mego…
