Mego American West Toys: A complete histoy

 

Mego Museum Presents the American West Toy Line. A comprehensive look at the 1974 action figure line based on characters from American History. Including Davey Crockett, Wild Bill Hickock, Cochise and Wyatt Earp. We explore the line, what didn’t make it to market and how it was sold in foreign countries and the many comebacks this line had.
