    Plaid Stallions The shop window of Mego Dreams.....



    I debated whether to put this here or on the Mego Museum but considering it's a vintage photo of a toy store in Hong Kong (and let's face it, this site has an obsession with such things).

    This display of Mego Superhero items and Micronauts is my happy place, I drove my mother crazy looking for the 9.5" Robin on the far left. It looked just like Dick Grayson in the comics, it had to be mine.

    Speaking of Mego, the annual convention known as Mego Meet is this June 16-17 in Skokie, Illinois. It's our last year in the Chicago area before we move to a new state, so last call mid west! Strong chance the guy at the front desk will be me, don't let that deter you.

    It was the "centerfold" of the 1981 Mego International Annual Report.

    It's actually quite cool to see 8" Spidey hanging on the rope ladder of CAH WW's Invisible Jet. But it's also an interesting choice of characters they took in general.
    I wish toy shop windows these days looked like this.
