It’s time to take a look back at a major part of toy history, as Figures
Toy Company is proud to announce the re-release of Benjamin Holcomb’s “Mego 8″ Super Heroes: World’s Greatest Toys” book!

Originally released back in 2007, Holcomb’s book is regarded as the definitive guide to all things Mego.  An amazing amount of research went into this,and it covers everything a collector could ask for!  From packaging to prototypes, interviews with Mego employees, and a look at every single Mego superhero, even the ones that never made it to the toy aisle!

Thanks to Figures Toy Company, fans of their retro action figures can now read up on what inspired their own World’s Greatest Heroes toy line.

This amazing resource features insightful interviews, amazing photos and a chronological  history of the 8″ World’s Greatest Superheroes toy line!
