View Full Version : Mego of the Day: 12" Lex Luthor
Mego of the Day is the completely underrated 12" figure of Lex Luthor, (http://www.megomuseum.com/wgsh/12/luthor.html) looking like he just stepped out of the legion of doom, it's hard not to be in awe.

A stunning figure, probably my favorite 12" next to magnetic Batman.
I always wished they had done him in 8" scale.

I always wanted Lex as a kid, and I still do. Is it just me, or does there seem to be more boxed than loose examples out there?
Hackman face + Curt Swan/LOD suit =one great figure. I need him BADLY.

Wow - Never seen him in this light. For that time period, this is one superb figure..! Love the Curt Swan appearance. Just a beautiful figure.

The coolness of this figure just taunts my 8" collection.

This dude rocks. I so wish they had an 8" version.

I had a 12" Superman as a kid, but didn't even know that Mego made a Lex Luthor. I really like Mego's decision to use Gene Hackman's face on the suit used in the cartoons of the time.

I really nice figure indeed. Like others a shame it didn't get the 8" treatment

Mego certainly put some thoght in this one. Why he wasn't done in 8" scale is beyond me and a major oops for Mego.

Love this figure, but don't have him. However, I have Austin's (Reproheads.com) awesome 8 inch recast of him.

Love the figure and love the whole Superman 12" line, very colourful and comic book looking. I still have to get Lex and Jor-El.
