After 30 Years a New Mego Figure Discovered

Mego Logans Run is proud to unveil it’s latest discovery, Logan 5 from the TV series “Logan’s Run”.

This never before seen figure has a likeness based on the star of the 1977 series Gregory Harrison. Mego planned to produce a range of Logan’s Run toys but CBS Television abruptly canceled the series before 1978 Toy Fair thus forcing Mego to cancel the toy line.

With less than a handful of samples produced, few of these items have survived. In previous years samples of supporting characters such as villain Francis 7 and Robotic sidekick REM were finally found but until now samples of the show’s namesake character had eluded collectors.

Today, Mego collectors can finally get a glimpse of what might have been with the Mego Logan Five prototype.

Discuss this on the MegoMuseum Forums.

Your Modern Stone Age Family

Thanks to Chris Johnson, the Museum now has a gallery devoted to the very rare Mego Flinstones Playset. Definitely not your typical Mego item but one you might add to your wantlist after seeing it, it's that cool.

Check out Todd's amazing Jackson Bostwick as Shazam custom! The only thing that would make this better is a Mr Mentor to go with it. OK, maybe a winnebago....

Dave never seems to stop amazing us with the 8" Star Wars figures, this time it's his take on Lando Calrissian Works every time.
