    $$$: Comic Action Heroes vs. Pocket Heroes

    I'm pretty much done collecting Mego 8" figures but considering another line.

    Is there a consensus about the affordability of Comic Action vs. Pocket figures?

    In my opinion, Comic Action has the advantage of a few more characters I like. Advice appreciated, thanks.

    The Comic Action Heroes figures are a little bit more of a PITA when it comes to getting complete figures. Those orange bases are a real PITA and 9 times out of 10 you need to find carded CAH figures in order to get them complete. Don't know if that helps or hinders what your next move will be. Either way...good luck.

    Pockets are cheaper because yeah, less characters and less stuff. Still some tough stuff in the line but probably 20% more satisfying?

    I love them both so you really can't go wrong.

    The white-card Pocket heroes are nice, I already have an Aquaman. Maybe I'll mix sets/lines, as I'm not really concerned about packaging.

    I'm so envious that you have the courage to take this plunge. Maybe one day, but I am completely biased in favor of CAH over PH. They were the originals, and they're just so quirky with that wacky stance, attractive card art/logo, and the uniformity of the bases. Ugh, the more I think about them, the more I'd like to do it. Which ones are most scarce?

    ^ Well Andy, I haven't really plunged yet. I have a CA Penguin and a Pocket Aquaman. But I'm missing Mego, and these smaller figures seem more approachable than the 12" offerings.

    Love the CAH line. They were the first action figures I ever collected as a kid. Over the years I've managed to reacquire a full set of the loose figures (only missing Green Goblin's satchel)... I'll probably start to acquire them all carded next year.

    Looking for the following Mego "Comic Action Heroes" accessories: Penguin's umbrella and Green Goblin's satchel/shoulder bag.
    And one Mego Comic Activator (working or non working).

    I mostly collect the CAH but the PH are fun too. CAH Cap is #3 in my all time Top 3 Megos ever made. Been trying to find a loose complete PH Cap, but they get pricey. Last one I bid on (with a beater PH Bats) sold for about $170.

    One of my fondest Mego memories involved a CAH figure. I was a 4th grader and could not get to sleep Christmas Eve. As an only child, my parents kinda spoiled me with toys (which created the monster that types this post), so Christmas Eve always got me fired up. My Mother gave me half a sleeping pill; nothing. I decided to deal with her: I promise to go to bed if I could open up just 1 gift tonight. She said no. The dealing turned to groveling and she caved in. I randomly picked up a small gift, which ended up being CAH Aquaman. Slept good that night.

    You are transparent; I see many things... I see plans within plans.
