Factory Sample Pocket Heroes Wonder Woman

Mego Pocket Heroes Hand Painted Factory Sample of Wonder Woman

This “wonderful” (pun intended) item was recently discovered in the desk of a prominent toy designer/sculptor who received it from Mego, likely to give them an idea of scale.

The most notable difference between it and a factory produced item is the lack of copyright and of course variations in the colour scheme.

It’s always great to see something that we’ve never seen before, let’s hope more vintage factory samples surface in the coming months.

    apparently this was after they fixed the face but check out those man-hands! given the overall excellence of Mego product (or at least consistent gender specification of licensed characters) its hard not to think somebody was deliberately messing with Wonder Woman here.

    and yes, I realize that unlike the 8 inch figures the Pocket Hero line was designed to work with accessories. this would probably explain why Wonder Woman (the only female character)had to have the same hands as “the guys” so she would work with the same play sets. but given that the 8 inch Falcon (the only black hero in the line)also has questionable hands, it does make excellent fodder for a pretty pointless debate.
