Mego Museum Mint Off Card has returned TO THE PLANET OF THE APES! This week we look at the Soldier, the latest Mego takes on a classic apes figure. It’s a new take on an old favourite but haven’t we seen that head before? We also talk about variations in the line. Let’s go to the forbidden zone together!
intage Mego this week looks at the Hall of Justice Playset for the Mego World’s Greatest Superheroes Toy Line. This deluxe Mego playset came out in 1976 when the Superheroes were the hottest action figure lines going.
The Hall of Justice was not in the comics at the time, just the Super Friends animated show. We look at the Legion of Superheroes prototype, the Green Lantern appearance, discuss its translocator feature, and talk about that other Hall of Justice Playset Mego made that year.

10-4 Good Buddy! Vintage Mego discusses the CB McHaul toy line from 1977, a series of action figures not based on Superheroes or Science Fiction but on Burt Reynolds movies and your dad’s hobby. It even taught you a secret language known as trucker talk! We talk about the 70s CB radio craze, the line’s origins and how it’s one of the rarest Mego action figure lines to collect! This video is free of obvious, “low hanging fruit” jokes about self-pollution.

and how it’s one of the hardest action figure lines to collect!
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.
