Vintage Mego: The 12″ Black Hole Line

Vintage Mego this week goes in, through, and beyond Mego’s relationship with Disney’s 1979 Science Fiction blockbuster, The Black Hole! This episode explicitly discusses the 12″ Mego line of action figures based on the Black Hole characters, considered one of Mego’s biggest failures. Why did it fail? We give you a breakdown while discussing its origins, how Mego got out of paying a million-dollar royalty bill and how Ernest Borgnine brought about wedded bliss for one Mego employee.
