Forgotten Friday! The awesome MEGO company. #mego, #Forgotten Friday #DC, #marvel

Man, do I remember how awesome the MEGO company was. That company had licenses to more characters than any other I think. They had Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley, Marvel, DC, Tarzan, Planet of the Apes, Dukes of Hazzard, Star Trek, the list could go and on. I grew up playing with the Pocket Size Super Heroes

And the other DC and Marvel figures from their World’s Greatest Super Heroes line:

SuperheroesCollection2004 I loved my HULK figure!

Star Trek, was popular line and is still wanted by the Trekkies!


I remember one birthday I received the Dukes of Hazard General Lee, Mego was in such high demand for these that they had to ship the car without the figures. It’s a good thing I was a little older when I got this because it would have been seriously disappointing to be five and get a car with a note that says mail this in to claim your Bo and Luke figures.



I don’t think a company would ever get the licenses that MEGO had back then, too much competition and money in it today.

I need to get my time machine built!
