The Mego Superheroes Down Under

New to the MegoMuseum Ad Archive is this rare Australian Magazine Ad for Toltoys (the down under distributer) who took the 1973 Mego Superheroes Catalog page and made it their own! Click on the image to see a bigger version.
Many thanks to Catherine AKA "SlipperyLilSuckers" for bringing this to our attention!

Check out the MegoMuseum Library for hours of Mego browsing.

The Mego Superheroes start small

1973 Mego Superheroes catalog spread

It's hard to believe this but the World's Greatest Superhero Line had a very humble start in the 1973 Sears Catalog, they were regulated to the "Bargain Page" of toys under $2.00, you'd miss them if you weren't careful.

Black or White, He's Dynamite!

1973 Action Jackson catalog spread

Well technically, he's not Dynamite, he's Mego's original 8 inch adventurer Action Jackson. The 1973 JC Penney Catalog doesn't have any Superhero content but it does have this swell offering AJ's world.

Interesting News From October 1973

Dan Edwards sent in this toy news article from 1973 concerning the sales of these new "Dawn Sized" dolls of Superman and Batman. These dolls would continue to sell for the next ten years and are probably the biggest reason that the Megomuseum exists today.
