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.

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

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.
