1978 ReImagined Catalog Ready to Order!

What if?

  • Mego hadn't passed on Star Wars?

  • There were additional waves to the World's Greatest Superheroes line?

  • The KISS dolls were 8" tall so you could use them on other adventures?

  • Scooby and the Gang got in on the fun?

  • These are just some of the answers the MegoMuseum community tries to provide with their newest publication "1978 REIMAGINED" a full color fantasy catalog created entirely by the members of the MegoMuseum forums!

    The project started as a challenge to our customizers to come up with concepts that may have been included and were then judged by a panel including former Mego Employees.

    The end result is this fantastic publication with artwork by Anthony Durso, which provides full color pages of fantasy Mego catalog layouts for Star Wars, the World's Greatest Superheroes, Star Trek, Universal Monsters, Wizard of Oz and much more.

    It's a tribute to the World's Greatest Toy Company and to the many talented customixers we have in our fold.

    The 1978 REIMAGINED Mego Catalog is now available for order, quantities are limited. Each order includes a free, never before seen MegoMuseum sticker as well as other surprises.

    Heroes In Action: Abraham Lincoln

    Toy Maker Heroes In Action sent us a sneak peak at the upcoming Abraham Lincoln figre from their ever expanding "Presidential Heroes" line.

    While I'm sure history buffs are excited by this, I for one, can't wait to put him in my Star Trek display.

    The line will also be getting new packaging in 2010 as shown above.

    The Top Five Retro Action Heroes We'd Like To See

    It's been entirely too long since a Mego Museum Top Five List.While the information about the 3rd wave of Mattel's Retro Action Heroes hasn't been released at the time of this writing, we at the Megomuseum cobbled together a wishlist of sorts based on characters that we felt we missing back in 1978, so without further adieau, here are our top five

    Number 5- Apache Chief

    Ok, granted he's one of those multi culture pals created for the Superfriends but Apache Chief was head and shoulders above Wendy and Marvin in terms of character quality. His later work on Harvey Birdman and utterly cool catchphrase put him on our want lists.
