    Plaid Stallions BIG toys week: The Wayne Foundation by Mego Corporation




    The Mego Wayne Foundation is like a Barbie Dreamhouse but it's for Batman, so it's completely awesome and not a doll house.

    For this entry, I can swipe all the photos from the MegoMuseum because I work there (mainly to steal stuff from the break room and use the photocopier).

    I never had the set as a kid but i saw it in a comic book and it haunted me. I must admit that I LOVE THIS PLAYSET!

    I bought one when i was 17, sold it in college (for beer money) and then bought another one from a struggling college student who needed beer money (Circle of Life!).




    This 40-inch tall playset was sort of the zenith for Mego World's Greatest Superheroes, as the line started to decline the following year as kids started getting more interested in Star Wars and 3 3/4" action figures. Man, it went out with a bang!




    This is the original prototype from the Mego archive, shame they ditched the plants.

    My Mego Holy Grail. I doubt I will ever own one, just because my toy budget is limited beyond even the base price of this.

    I never knew it existed as a kid. Had I known, I would have begged for it.

    The original prototype is much more comic accurate. That tiny segment of the penthouse looks like a slice of the comic version!

    Iíll probably get flak for this but Iíve never been a fan of this play set. Found it boring and kind of ugly. I think most of us could make a better custom one if we had the tools.

    I did not know that. That's pretty cool.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...
