The folks at the CHiPs 35th Anniversary Cast Reunion got in touch to let Mego fans know about the upcoming event to be held September 15th in Los Angeles, CA.If you are in the area it’s a chance to rub elbows with the cast of the show that inspired many of us to ride our bicycles in formation through the neighborhood back in the late 70s. Check out the flyer below or visit their website at ChipsReunion.com
CHiPs was one of Mego’s last successful licenses before their went out of business. CHiPs were done in the famous 8 inch action figure format as well as the 3 3/4 figure format. The Mego Museum CHiPS galleries have lots of photos and information about this line including a look at the Bruce Jenner headsculpt that was created when Jenner briefly took over for Erik Estrada in the early 80s.
To help promote the event the MegoMuseum podcast will be sitting down soon to record an interview with stars Larry (Officer Jon Baker) Wilcox and Robert (Sgt. Joe Getraer) Pine. It’s a great opportunity to speak with actors who were immortalized in authentic Mego vinyl form!
We’d love to pass along your questions or comments to Larry and Robert, so please leave them in the comments section here, on the Museum’s Facebook page, or in the Mego Museum Forums.
