Mego Mystery Man/Pilot/Astronaut

The Mego Mystery Man

This handsome figure started surfacing in collectors circles in the late 1980’s and since then has been stumping collectors as to who he’s supposed to be.

No Mego packaging has ever been found for the Mystery Man, he’s usually found loose or sometimes in polybags.

The boots, Type 1 body, helmet and the head sculpt are all reissues of Mego materials. The jumpsuit is unlike anything else produced.

The first theory is that this fellow is supposed to be an astronaut, the strongest case is made when you compare him to the Mego Planet of the Apes Astronaut and Space:1999’s Alan Carter.

New theories indicate that he’s a pilot. Is he a promotional item? A failed prototype for “Blue Thunder’ figures? A long lost POTA astronaut? We may never know…

See what a difference a little paint makes? The four faces of the Mysteryman.
