Mego Scottie is one of the more desirable crew members

Mego Mr. Scott (Scottie)


Mr. Scott (Scottie) (Item No. 51200/5), chief engineer of the Starship Enterprise, as portrayed by James Doohan. The head sculpt on this figure resembles the animated Scotty to a much greater degree than the real-life inspiration. It is still a compelling sculpt, its furrowed brow and down-turned mouth depicting the put-upon and strained nature inherent to the chief engineer of a starship helmed by Capt. Kirk.

The figure came outfitted in a red tunic and black cuffed trousers. The tunic was detailed with a black neckband, two gold foil rank stripes on each arm, and a silver foil insignia. (This insignia is particularly problematic for loose collectors, as it consists of a stiff adhesive gray backing and a whisper-thin sheet of silver foil. This backing is almost always found on the tunic, as it is well-glued onto the fabric. However, the foil is delicate and typically curls, tears, and/or falls off after even five minutes of play time.)

A black utility belt, blue phaser and blue communicator served to complete the ensemble.


Differences of detail on Mego Scottie's heads

The Mr. Scott figure went through four distinct face incarnations. The first was a Type 1 head (lighter flesh) with dark-pink detailing on the lips (far left). The next was a Type 1 head (lighter flesh) with light-pink detailing on the lips (left-center). The next was a Type 1 head (lighter flesh) without lip paint (right-center). The fourth and final head was a Type 2 head (darker flesh) without lip detailing. The first two are certainly the rarest, while the fourth is the most common.
