Mego of the Day: Pocket General Zod

It's impossible to kneel towards a guy if you don't have articulation there. General Zod wasn't a high point for the pocket heroes but hey, a new character is a new character.....

Mego of the Day: Humanoid

Mego of the Day is the incredibly elusive, foreign exclusive figure from the 1980 Walt Disney film "The Black Hole". A background group of characters, the humanoid is of particular interest to collectors due to figure only being sold in Canada and Italy.
