View Full Version : Favorite Mego-Like Figure(s)
Apr 18, '08, 10:27 AM
Besides Megos, I've always loved the Big Jim line, especially P.A.C.K.
Dr. Steel remains one of my favorite figures of all time.
I'm also a big fan of Hypnos/Pulsar as well as SuperJoe and LJN.
What's your favorite?

Big Jim rules, but I think I have a special place in my heart for the AHI oranguntan in khaki.
My folks would not buy me any of the Mego POTA figs. I also was not allowed *officially* to watch POTA movies or the series--strange *religious* thing, something about promoting evolution. Anyhow, for some reason my grandma gave in, though, and bought me the AHI guy christmas of 75.

I've actually started doing the SWAT,Rookies, and Emergency stuff. Had the SWAT stuff as a kid but watched all three. It went well with the AJ line, and Cap and Spidey were mixed in as well.

I gotta go with Brown Bear and say my favorite is Dr. Steel. I just scored a minty one last month. I never had one as a child, so this was extra special.
His tattoos are flawless and his arms aren't discolored. Now I'm after THe Whip from the PACK line.

Hasbro's 9 inch line.

Tomland's The Fly. I had a couple of these when I was a kid, but this one always appealed to me a little for some reason.

I don't like any paricular line, but I really do like the Paco and Tong bodies. Big Jim was cool though:yes:

I can't believe I'm the first to say AHI's Universal Monsters.
I say that all the time though, I need to pick a second favorite Megolike line. I'll say...
The Astro Apes. They look like POTA on acid.

I'm not too familiar with a lot of what is out there and I only have a AHI Dracula and Frankenstein, and Frank is way better than Drac, so I would have to say AHI Frankenstein - I do like his realistic head sculpt and his flat facing palms - much more authentic looking than the Mego Frankenstein.

Big Jim was my second Favorite line. Had the P.A.C.K and a few others... One thing that Big Jim had beat over Megos was you could buy new clothes for them....

Too hard to decide, I have too many favourites. The Big Jim line is definitely near the top of the list though, I was only thinking yesterday how well they were made, and how I am constantly seeing new things from that line.

The LJN SWAT figures by far. I had those and the truck and they were a part of my Megos when I was a kid. I didn't know the difference.
Tomlands. Especially the Fly. I got him on a trip to Toronto and he quickly became my favourite bad guy.

LJN's. The second style bodies. Not the ones with the lame pop-off hands and feet.
