Thanks for the catalogue page scans, Brian. I'm a fan of these figures, so the pages were an absolute treat to see! :yes:

How in the world did that Gabriel Lone Ranger sculpt end up in so many lines? Super Joe, 12" Robin, Angels Patient. Did a freelance sculptor just keep shopping this generic base sculpt around?

Cool catalog. This line looks quite ahead of it's time. Too bad it failed. But had it succeeded, RAH may have never come to be.

These were some of my favorites to play along with my Megos, but these days they are in pieces.

Is there someone who repairs these? If so what do they charge to fix a figure?

Just one more sign of superheroes and science fiction taking over the landscape. I always liked Joe, but these actually appealed to me more. I have to admit I hated the outfits and accessories.

Are they really mego scale? I would love to snag one and give it a re-tie job.

the restring is easy it's the hands that are the issue. the same cheap rubber used for all the joints was used for the entire Kung fu hand so aside from the restring you have to drill out the wrists to put a replacement hand in (the only ones I have found that work are the modern action jackson ones

they were well made at the time to be honest my Megos broke alot but Superjoes didn't but after 10 years in the attic superjoe was an amputee and kirk was just loose. Again it was a toy they never tried to make them last

Sort of but it ain't easy or fast and they don't look all that great with clothes off. I started out fixing 12" lifelike bodies and the construction is the same except smaller but the hands on lifelike 12" used a plastic joints and rubber hand, the 9" are rubber for the whole hand.

I used rubber bands with knots on the ends to secure them in the sections. If the thigh has detached from the shorts I haven't figures how to fix that yet

Sorry for absence,

I had Super Joe figure with black jumpsuit with each gold strips and gold power vest with push button flashing light, also I had The Gor The Terron figure and six legs green Terron with remote control in Christmas, 1977! (I know it's supposed to be released in 1978) I guess mine had prototype!!! :shocked:

I don't have picture of them but I have vintage flimming camera, my father took flimmed me with six legs Terron robot. So, I put his homemade Video VHS tape in my VCR and I shot 2 pictures of them thru TV with my "Olympus" Camedia Digital camera C-725 Ultra Zoom (Optical Zoom 8 X) 3.0 Megapixel. Sorry for blur pics, next time I'll take my Video tape to the Wallgreen's to filling out some of these pics for me. So, it'll helps to clear the pictures for us to see them. When I'm finish copy of them then I'll post pics here.

Click on those thumbnails:

NOTE: I still have my original vintage Star Wars X-wing on the left side.

The Terron robot is on the near top & right side:

I can't remember what's in that boxes on the left side and on the top. Can you id these 2 boxes? LMK, thanks.

The Terron is on the left side:

is it true once the batteries are dead they are dead or can they be replaced

I know the batteries for King Gor, Shield and Luminos could be replaced (I had all of them the used AA's with the batery in the torso) so I assume the terron's could as well but I never had one back then so I am not certain

Terron uses 3 "D" batteries, and the Command Laser that comes with him uses 2 "AA" batteries. Considering the toy didn't come with batteries included, they would kind of have to be replaceable. :)

I don't know about Super Joe Commander or Darkon, I never had either. The batteries would have to go in the "backpacks" not the torsos, but I'm guessing they involve removable "AA"s like the others?

Yup! They went across the shoulders in a big sticky-outie part. (That's where the power switch was, too.) I remember that, and the noise Gor made when hit, from when I was a kid.

helipack attached to the vest too. I loved the aqua laser (a water gun back pack)
