Yeah, I’m doing the Waltons episode, even though I don’t collect the toyline or enjoy the show itself, let’s defend Mego’s decision to make a Waltons toy line in 1975. PS the Sunshine Family legit scared me as a kid.

This week we take a look at one of the most requested figures in the Super Friends line, Giganta, evil size-changing foe of Apache Chief and member of the Legion of Doom! Figures Toy Company did some unique things with this figure that deserve a little attention.
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.
After a long break, I have another wonderful mystery box of Knock-Offs from the United Kingdom, this week we’re going to meet The Space Apes, a series of action figures that seem to resemble the Mego Planet of the Apes figures but with some noticeable differences.
Let’s unbox the latest retro action figures from NECA based on the once-maligned 1980s Horror classic “Halloween 3 Season of the Witch” can you believe this is happening? Me either! Life is good Mego heads.

Vintage Mego takes a look this week at the 1974 Mego Playset “The Lost Continent” which is available in both Action Jackson branded packaging and one that states it’s for the Mego Planet of the Apes figures. Which one is it? We reveal our theory as to why this may have happened.
This week we take a look at one of the most iconic space ship toys of the 1970s, the Mego Buck Rogers in the 25th-century starfighter and talk a bit about Mego’s relationship with the license and why mego passed on Battlestar Galactica.
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.
