Continuing along with the exploration of the 2019 Toy Fair, I am now up to the Mego stuff. I grew up with this brand of action figures and its without question that I probably had about “60” different ones when I was a child. My parents bought them for me, my grandmother bought them for me and if I had any gift money from whoever, I would buy them as well.
I loved these things and wish that they had withstood the sands of time. I think I have “8” or so in a box somewhere in one of my closets, so something to look for after Toy Fair has completed. Let’s give a look to the exciting new figures that will be coming out over the course of the year.
The first thing that caught my eye was the brand-new and coming soon action figures for “The Hottest Band In The World” KISS!!! Most of my readers know about my devotion to the band and while some other companies have made action figures for them over the last few years, this is the first time that Mego was doing them since the first figures back in 1978 or so. I still have mine somewhere and no they aren’t boxed since no one did that stuff all that often back then.
As you know, KISS is on their “End Of The Road” World Tour and these are some limited edition collectible figures that sport the costumes of the tour. I hope to find these ASAP because when it comes to KISS and figures, I try to get them. I just wish they would do new ones from Funko and who knows maybe they are. I haven’t gotten to their section just yet.
Mego also makes some larger scale action figures and while these are very nicely done, they are less articulated than the smaller ones. I want the KISS ones of course and perhaps even the Harley Quinn. My hope is that they make more of the superheroes into the 8″ size again.
Before we close up they also had a product displayed called “Heads Up” which seemed to be bouncing superball kinds of things with famous character faces on them. Obviously the KISS ones caught my attention first. I think if I purchased these I would leave them in the package for posterity. Since I have a cat, I don’t see a ball doing anything less than disappearing from the second she discovers it.
That’s going to be the end of the story for the Mego stop on my adventure but as you know there is plenty more to come. Please click through to the company’s official website so you can keep up with what they will have coming out over the next few months and as always remember to get behind the PiercingMetal Social Networks of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. We’d love to have you along with us when we discover all the awesome. See you next time.
