POTAThrone Photos Updated

Digging through old vacation photos, I found these shots from Mego Meet of the bizarro Planet of the Apes accessory, the Throne. One shudders to contemplate the horrors inflicted on the caged human. Probably merciless tickling by monkey paws.

Waltons Menu John Boy Ellen Pa Walton Ma Walton Grandma Walton Grandpa Walton Walton’s Farmhouse Walton’s Truck A testament to the licensing giant that Mego was, the Waltons was a bit of a departure for the action figure giant. However…

The Love Boat Mego Gallery

Just hearing those words reminds me of Ernie (Ghoulardi) Anderson’s promos for that show, remember that booming voice of ABC going "tonight on the Loooove Boat"?. A highly rated show at the time, Love Boat seemed a logical kid’s toy…

Star Trek

Mego’s “Star Trek” line was “officially” based on the live-action series in syndication in 1974, but the Mego designers appear to have referred repeatedly to The Animated Series for inspiration.  It’s not difficult to imagine why frugal, economical Mego would…
