Mego One Million BC Prototype Dug Up


A rare early version of Zon, the child character from Mego’s One Million BC line was recently discovered in a former Mego distributor’s showroom. This appears to be an early sample used for photography and promotion, as it matches the character on the back of the card.

The Mego Catalog shot featuring a blonde haired Zon.

The big difference being that regular released Zon figures had dark hair while this early version is clearly a blonde.

This isn’t the only surprise to come from this show room, look for more in the coming weeks.
