This week Vintage Mego unboxed The Mangler, released by Mego in 1976 as part of their Comic Action Heroes line of toys, it has the distinction of being one of the weirdest Superhero toys ever produced.
Seriously, what is this thing? Wouldn’t it kill the Green Goblin? We’ll never truly know.
PlaidStallions announced on their YouTube channel that they are launching an old fashioned toy magazine and the first issue will be a tribute to the rack toys created by Azrak Hamway International or AHI.
Time to delve into the magical world of Knock Off or bootleg action figures again with these classics from the 1970s, the weirdest justice league ever consisting of Aquaman, Superman and um…….Bat-Phantom-Solider-Man?
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 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.
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!
