Original Mego Factory Head Molds Found


Some amazing pieces of Mego history recently surfaced in the form of these original factory head molds for the Mego Elastic Heroes line of toys.

Pictured above the Spider-Man head mold reunited with his “child” a factory produced Spider-Man. Original Mego factory molds are not regularly or commonly found with most feared destroyed decades ago.


Above is Superman and his factory produced counterpart (who sadly no longer has a body) courtesy of  the website Collectingsuperman.com.

Both of these pieces were found in a collection of a person who inhereted them from a relative known to be a sculptor. Check out the gallery below for more shots, hopefully this isn’t the last of rare mego factory items to surface.
