Mego Tex Willer

Mego Kit Willer is the second hardest to find in the line

Mego Kit Willer

Kit Willer, is Tex Willer's half Navajo son, in the spirit of pulp characters like Tarzan, Tex has a full grown son but doesn't look a day over 35.

The Mego Kit Willer Figure like all in the Tex Willer line, cleverly reuses existing Mego parts from the American West line, but it's done in a way that it doesn't interfere with an accurate depiction of the character. The Mego Kit Willer head was also used for the Planet of the Apes Astronaut, and was proposed to be Don, boyfriend of Dinah-Mite but a certain Man of Steel won that title when the figure actually went into production.

One of the most used Mego heads, the Kit Carson head has many names in Mego Lore

Kit Carson's head sculpt was reused more than once at Mego

The Tex Willer packaging is easily one of the most striking in all of Mego's lines

The Rifleman: The Mego Kit Willer packaging shows Kit carrying a rifle, don't panic if you can't find your rifle, he didn't come with one!
