Vintage Mego: The Lost Continent (Action Jackson or Planet of the Apes?)

 

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.

Gulliver Super Heroes: Vintage Mego

This is a change of pace for Vintage Mego, these figures weren’t made by Mego heck the company had been out of business! We’re not even sure they’re licensed.

Presenting the Gulliver Super Heroes, a line that crossed the Kenner Super Powers with the Mego Pocket Superheroes.

This video is intended for adult (18+) collectors only.

Cancelled Mego Superheroes: Vintage Mego
