Jet Jungle

For a Mego collector, there is nothing more exciting than finding out you’re not done. When Tex Willer first appeared in the mid nineties or when John Bonavita unveiled Zorro within the pages of his book, making many collectors turn…

AJ Lost Continent

The Mego Lost Continent Box had two versions, this one explains that this playset would also be good for Mego “Planet of the Apes” figures. Apes were easily out selling AJ at the time.   The back of the box…

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…

Neptunian

The Neptunian (Item No. 51203/1), providing a rather inauspicious start to the line of Aliens figures. This figure is actually fairly ornate and well-designed, in a Saturday-afternoon-sci-fi-serial kind of way, but its great failure is that it NEVER APPEARED IN…

Cheron

The Mego Cheron (Item No. 51203/4), arguably the best attempt at a “Star Trek” Alien within the first series of Aliens. This estimation is not due to any impressive degree of craftsmanship in the Cheron, but is instead indicative of…

Aliens Series One
