Vintage Mego Hall of Justice Playset

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.

A figure called Sloane
Chris G blew us away when he discovered the abandoned Kenner Toy Line to the obscure 1970s TV series “A Man Called Sloane”. Did I mention that I love that show?

Vintage Mego: CB McHaul

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. MegoMuseum Forums http://megomuseum.com/community/activity.php Join our FB Forum MegoMania https://www.facebook.com/groups/megomania/

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

Vintage Mego: Star Trek Mission to Gamma VI

Vintage Mego takes a look at the classic Mego Star Trek playset “Mission to Gamma VI” an alien world environment loosely based on a classic epsiode of the television series.

We also talk about why the Mego Star Trek line abruptly ended in 1977 even though it was still quite popular.

Vintage Mego: The Waltons

 

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 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.
