Re-Mego of the Day: Dr Eville

CastAWay toys snagged the license to this baby boomer favourite and melded the 60s with the 70s by shrinking them down to 8" baby.

Galaxy of Adventure includes Mego Buck Rogers

mego star trek
weird Buck playset Today's addition to the Mego Museum department store catalog archive is the second part to the two page spread with yesterday's Micronauts page. It's a whole page of Buck Rogers goodness.

According to former Mego VP Bill Baron, Buck Rogers was actually a good seller for the World's Greatest Toy company and that can be evidenced by it's appearance in three Mego catalogs. It's also a crazy fun line to collect now and very affordable.

The playset featured here isn't by Mego, it's another Sears exclusive most likely made by Tara Toys (See Monday's Hulk update) and was also sold with Star Wars figures.

Explore the MegoMuseum Buck Rogers Gallery today and don't forget to check out the Prototype Twiki Page.

This Week's Custom Spotlight

Speaking of television Science Fiction, Museum Member Drwhofan74 has created an 8" custom of Tom Baker era assistant Harry Sullivan (played by the late Ian Martyr) and it's pretty darn terrific!

Enter a Galaxy of Adventure with Mego Micronauts

mego star trek
weird star trek playset I'm loving this addition to the department store catalog archive today because it's a nice shot of the Mego Micronauts. It's a wonderfully dynamic shot of the rocket tubes playset.

Also neat is what appears to be an early Hornetroid prototype, which has a missile launcher in the front. For more on the developement of the Hornetroid check out this article by Ray Miller.

Early Birds aren't just for Seniors dept.

Cast Away Toys is offering an Early Bird Special on their upcoming Captaion Action and Doctor Evil figures, you not only get to be the first kid on your block with them but they'll be all variant and stuff. Read more here....

Mego Star Trek Returns Twice Plus Captain Action News

mego star trek
weird star trek playset A new addition to our growing department store catalog archive is this Sears 1980 Catalog Page featuring the return of the 8" Star Trek line. Even though Mego had stopped producing the figures in 1977, they made a return to Sears by the late seventies on what many call the "Blank Back Cards" (check the Museum Star Trek pages for more info).

You'll also notice a weird playset on this page, it's actually a recording studio playset for 12" Fashion dolls that has been all "spaced up" so to speak and is not a Mego product.

Speaking of Star Trek returning, our own Roberto (Aka Blue Meanie) has shared some terrific photos of the EMCE toys Star Trek display at this past weekend's New Yory City Comic Con, click here to see more.

Roberto also reports on the Cast-A-Way Captain Action display at last weekend's Comic Con and was very impressed, check out his thoughts on Captain Action, Doctor Evil and the Phantom here.
