Best Wishes, Cornelius or Planet of the Apes Day!

Neat piece added to the Mego Museum Planet of the Apes gallery today. It's an autographed handout from a store appearance made by Cornelius, although any fan worth his salt could tell you that it's Caesar in the photo. Those toy company execs can't tell their McDowell's apart. Mego did a great deal of promotion for Apes, here are some wonderful back in the day photos.

The infamous Apes Macy parade float, some new photos have come out thanks to the generosity of the Abrams family, check out this thread for more.

MIB Basa Robin at the Mego Museum

BASA robin MIB
It is a good day when we have something like this to share. The first boxed BASA superhero all the way from Peru, which happens to be Robin the boy wonder, is now on display at the Mego Robin page. He's really, really pretty, so be sure to take a look.

L'uomo Ragno!

Our buddy Olmo sent in this cool pic from the 1978 Harbert Catalog, where the sole Mego figure for sale was none other than everyone's favourite web head. These Harbert cards do crop up periodically but are not easy to find.
