Magnetic Heroes Update

A fabulous update at the MegoMuseum Magna Heroes Gallery today, courtesy of Mark Huackabone we have shots of the proposed American series of cards for the four heroes.

Mego pitched the line using these very samples at Toy Fair 1980 and decided to abandon the line. These rare US cards were produced for display at Toy Fair and are the only known to exist.

Check Them out at the Mego Museum Magna Heroes Gallery.

This Magnetic bad boy only saw release in Europe sadly, the "Magna Heroes" line never got enough buyer support in the U.S.

The MegoMuseum Interview with Tory Mucaro : Mego R & D

"I'll never forget the day they came to me with the Torino from Starsky and Hutch and asked me if I could make it look like the General Lee!"

Tory Mucaro has one of the more unqiue stories when it comes to his tenure at Mego, hired by John McNett while still in high school, he learned his trade at the Mego research and development department.

Tory was kind enough to share with us some of his recollections about those happy times and by doing so revealed many things not known about Mego. He has also graciously provided photographs of his many projects for us to enjoy. Check out the Megomuseum interview with Tory Mucaro, it's sure to be one your favourites.
