    And now I see my pictures of the toy were removed. Okay....
    This is a tough one to find. Even harder in good condition.

    You got that right. Yes, it was primarily released in Canada and parts of Europe. I haven't found any official reason why there was barely a trickle in the States, being as it is an American property, but Mego had a knack for strangeness.

    Foreign distributors like Grand Toys, GIG and Airfix had to pay in advance for their orders with a letter of credit.

    When Mego smelled a bomb (like TMP, Black Hole) they could stop production on their orders and not make inventory they'd probably have to clearance.

    However, it would be foolhardy for them not to make the inventory that was bought and paid for in foreign markets.

    That is why you get Humanoids and Second series aliens in Canada.

    I got this right from the head of sales for Grand Toys.
