Heroes In Action: Abraham Lincoln

Toy Maker Heroes In Action sent us a sneak peak at the upcoming Abraham Lincoln figre from their ever expanding "Presidential Heroes" line.

While I'm sure history buffs are excited by this, I for one, can't wait to put him in my Star Trek display.

The line will also be getting new packaging in 2010 as shown above.

Gestern Wars Promotional Piece

Fantastic Update courtesy of Jens Knappman today who was kind enough to scan this rare German leaflet for the Lion Rock Gestern Wars series but also translated the whole thing for us as well. It's a really neat look at foreign marketing many of us haven't seen before:

1939 - 1945

When the world was ablaze. The second World- War was at rage. Nearly all countries of the world were involved in this war.

Today no sensible statesman would chose the war as a means of politics. Too large were the suffers and casualties of the recent war, too powerful and deadly are modern destructive weapons. 55 million dead people and immense destruction remind us to not forget the past.

Everyone who wants to know how the world in which we are living now was created, how todays political systems and borders developed, will not get around learning about the most extensive military conflict in the history of the world.

Captain Patch Returns (Sort of)

A neat new addition to the Mego Museum Super Pirates Gallery.

Captain Patch was recycled by an anonymous toy distributor in the mid seventies to get rid of excess Matchbox "Fighting Furies" outfits. The figure was often just shoved into an existing outfit (as seen above). The head is a reverse of the Mego head (Meaning his eye patch is on the other eye), his outfit consists of Jean LaFite's clothes and his body is the exact same as Captain Eagle,who was marketed with spare Action Jackson outfits. Photo courtesy of Bill Frost.

Retro-Action Green Arrow: Up Close

Another up close shot of the upcoming Retro Action line, this time it's Oliver Queen himself! The Green Arrow!

The original Mego Sculpt has been altered here, it's not a reproduction but a nice alteration of the original. Amazing how the eye paint changes the whole aesthetic.

Green Arrow will be availble December 23rd (that's tomorrow people!) at

Many thanks to EMCE and Mattel for this early peek at this line, it was a wonderful present!

Retro-Action Sinestro: Up Close

Thanks to good people at Mattel and EMCE we have another early look at the Mattel Retro Action DC Super Heroes line, this time it's 8" Sinestro head sculpt again in the rather fitting "Mugshot" style.

As with Lex there is a "Challenge of the Superfriends" vibe going on here and it's just one thing about this figure that makes me happy, the other is that the appearance of Sinestro also clears up one of Mego's bigger omissions, an 8" Green Lantern.

Sinestro will also be in "Wave One" of the Retro-Action Superheroes this Spring.

Looking at this thing, it still feels a little surreal at the moment. 2010 will truly be the year of the Mego Scale.

Star Trek TMP Gallery Updated and Revised

Want to feel old? Star Trek the Motion Picture was released 30 years ago last month. While the "human adventure" didn't set the toy aisles ablaze with sales, Mego squeaked some fun toys for Christmas that year and we've completely redesigned our Star Trek: The Motion Picture Gallery.

We've added dozens of new packaging and revised figure shots, along with new images of unproduced prototypes like the Vulcan Shuttle play set.

So Beam Aboard the New Mego Star Trek: The Motion Picture Gallery.

Mattel Delays Green Arrow

But only for a week, this just in from the Matty Collector Facebook Page:

SALE UPDATE! Green Arrow isn't going to arrive at the warehouse in time for the sale tomorrow so he's going to move to our 12/23 sale with Wave 11. All other products are arriving as we speak and will go on sale tomorrow.

Hasbro Announces Relaunch of The Micronauts

Hasbro announced today a plan to bring back the classic "Micronauts" toyline with the cooperation of it's original creator Takara Toys.

Micronauts was first launched in 1977 by Mego Corporation and was a worldwide success.
It is not know if this will feature new characters or classics such as Baron Karza but with Hasbro also currently holding the rights to Marvel Comics, it may be possible that figures of Commander Raan, Bug and Marionette are in our future....

Holy Burned Toast Batman!

A new Mego Memory, here John Fiorella recieves his second Mego Batman, what happen to the first one you ask? John created a deathtrap for him in the family toaster.

John explains his motives for doing it "The adam west show filled my brain with all sorts of traps for Bats to get out of and the toaster wasn't one of them. I wrapped him in a straight jacket of cheese slices and in he went." he adds "The outcome... well, let's just say Robin had to go solo for a few months."

Thanks for the great picture and story John, if you have a Mego Memory for our gallery, drop us a line!

Mego Head of the Month: Vulcan2074

Museum Handle: Vulcan2074

Real Name: Sammy

Do you have a website or a blog? No, not at this time.

Where do you hail from? I’m originally from Texas but I currently live in California. I Love this state.

How did you find the Megomuseum? One day I was looking for pictures of MEGOs using Google and I saw the link. After I explored the Gallery I was hooked. I’ve been coming here ever since. The Museum is the best place for information hands down.

mego collection

What inspired you to join the forum? After I saw the topics of the threads and read some of the posts I decided to jump right in. I’m so glad that I did, I’ve met a lot of Cool people and I’ve had a lot of fun.

Azrak Hamway Monsters

mego superheroes MOC
What is your favorite Mego line? I’m a huge fan of The Worlds Greatest Superheroes. There the best hands down. Their colors and sculpts are fantastic. Ever since I was growing up I had a thing for Superheroes. It all started with my sister. She gave me a bunch of her old comics and ever since then I’ve been hooked on Superheroes. I also really dig Star Trek. I loved watching the reruns growing up. That has to be my second all time favorite MEGO line.

Happiest Mego Memory? It has to be the time that my Mom had brought home the Star Trek bridge playset with the crew for me. That’s one memory I’ll never forget. We still talk about it to this day.

What’s the one thing you’re hunting for? I’d love to find the Shark. I can dream can’t I?

What’s one item in your collection your most proud of? I really have a special place in my Heart for my MOC Andorian.

AHI Monsters

Any other hobbies, collections? As of lately my toy collecting has taken over all of my free time. My favorite lines to collect are MEGOs, ahi, Star Wars, SMDM, Gashapon and Simpsons. My other interests are Martial Arts, collecting stickers and non-sport trading cards and watching movies made by the Shaw Bros. They have some of the all time greatest Kung-Fu flicks.

AHI Monsters

Any words of wisdom for beginning collectors? Patience is the key. There’s always another toy just right around the corner. Also have fun.
