Let’s take a loving look back to 1978 when Mego’s Micronauts got a spiffy two-page spread in the JC Penny Catalog. Mego hit gold in 1977 with their take on Japan’s “Microman” toy line as children everywhere had a newfound love for space toys thanks to the popularity of Star Wars.
In 1978, Mego would see $20 million dollars in Micronauts sales (about 78M today) and that number would escalate in 1979. It truly was a winning toy concept.
