This week I share possibly my favourite knock-off find of the last few years, meet the Krazy Kreeps, two eight Mego-esque monster figures that look so familiar. I’ll explain where we’ve seen them before, lots of fun surprises and mysteries.
This week we’re not going to talk about making a custom but rather look at some fond memories and celebrate some creators. Fans make the coolest stuff and let me introduce you to some of my favourites like the Supermobile, Jet Jaguar and Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, you’re gonna love it!
This Friday night at 8:30 pm EST on our Youtube Channel, an exclusive interview with Jason Lenzi from Bif Bang Pow for a retrospective on their 8″ Doctor Who toy line. Never before seen prototypes, behind the scenes stories, it’s going to be fun! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwY…_as=subscriber
This week we talk about the contributions of BASA, a company in Peru that not only made their own versions of the Mego World’s Greatest Superheroes but also made this 8 inch Steve Austin figure, a completely unique item to their country.

While the Mego World’s Greatest Superheroes is one of the successful toylines of all time, it like any other toyline, did have a fair share of items that didn’t make it into production. Vintage Mego takes a look at a few Superhero items that just didn’t make the cut.
Which one of these do you wish got made? Let us know in the comments!
This week we take a look at a personal “Holy grail” of mine that i recently managed to acquire. The Power Action Superman was produced in the United Kingdom for a toy company called “Denys Fisher” but the story behind its creation is an interesting one.
Time to open another box of knock-off figures and these dudes are my new favorites. This line hedges all bets by crossing Star Wars with the Black Hole and Star Trek into a delicious stew of unlicensed hilarity!

Vintage Mego this week explores a figure that is on a lot of collector’s want lists, from 1978 we present the Zorro figure made for the UK market by Palitoy Bradgate. We have a lot more questions than answers but that is part of the fun of collecting Mego!
