Just a friendly reminder that today is the first day that you can order the initial figure from the Mattel "Retro-Action: DC Super Heroes" line (fomerly known as World's Greatest Superheroes). Eight inch Superheroes with real cloth costumes, it's a good day but stop and smell the roses, get your order in at mattycollector.com now, before they sell out!

Thanks to good people at Mattel and EMCE we have another early look at the Mattel Retro Action DC Super Heroes line, this time it's 8" Sinestro head sculpt again in the rather fitting "Mugshot" style.
Sinestro will also be in "Wave One" of the Retro-Action Superheroes this Spring.
Looking at this thing, it still feels a little surreal at the moment. 2010 will truly be the year of the Mego Scale.

Thanks to good people at Mattel and EMCE we have an early look at the Mattel Retro Action DC Super Heroes 8" Lex Luthor head sculpt in a sort of fitting "Mugshot" style.
I didn't know he could do that.
Spring can't come any quicker, stay tuned for more up close and personal shots from this much anticipated toy line.

I noticed we don't have a single packaged figure shown, so if you have some and you're handy with a camera email us!
Otherwise click on the ol' General Lee to see the revised Mego Dukes of Hazzard Gallery.

We've added dozens of new packaging and revised figure shots, along with new images of unproduced prototypes like the Vulcan Shuttle play set.
So Beam Aboard the New Mego Star Trek: The Motion Picture Gallery.

But only for a week, this just in from the Matty Collector Facebook Page:
Mego pitched the line using these very samples at Toy Fair 1980 and decided to abandon the line. These rare US cards were produced for display at Toy Fair and are the only known to exist.
Check Them out at the Mego Museum Magna Heroes Gallery.

If you could choose a head for an 8” Flash Gordon and Ming in the Movie Costume, would you prefer:
One with the likeness of Sam J Jones and Max Von Sydow ?
A revised version of the Mego Flash Gordon Heads?
These handsome fellas are just part of the new Toy Island Gallery over at Megolike.com.
While the company was in it's infancy, it produced several different lines of 7 inch clothed figures using familiar Mego territory such as Cowboys, Pirates, Monsters (yay!) and themes such as sports and firemen.
Check them all out at Megolike!

This begs the question, what other things does Mattel have planned under this "Retro-Action" banner? It sounds like 2010 will be truly be the year of the Megohead.
