Vintage Mego Fist Fighting Superheroes

Introduced in 1975 by Mego as an attempt to get that “Rock ’em Sock ’em Robots” money, the Fist Fighting Superheroes by Mego were a worldwide phenomenon that created many variations in the United Kingdom and in Mexico.

This episode of Vintage Mego talks about the US versions of the Fist Fighters but also takes a look at the efforts of Toltoys, Palitoy Bradgate and Lili ledy.

Special thanks to Eddie Berst, Jesus Magana and the Toltoys kid for their awesome generosity and kindness in creating this episode.
