    The Marvel Figures I Most Wish Mego Would Do

    I had the pleasure of chatting with Marty Abrams recently, and he expressed his hope that there could be some Mego Marvel characters down the line. Certainly, a lot of us have the same hope. Strictly speaking, I know what I’m wishing for isn’t just Marvel, as I’m pretty sure Universal still has a stake in this too, but darn it … it’s 2018 ꟷ where are my The Incredible Hulk TV Series action figures? I’ve only been dreaming about those almost my entire life. Of course, the series & the WGSH were at their peak at almost the same time, so in my mind there's always been a strong association between the two.

    It’s a shame Marvel won’t get in on the retro figure game. DC has given us Superman: The Movie toys (and, yes, I do wish Mego would do a new Chris Reeve Supes), Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman and, in recent years, nearly every character from Batman ’66. I want the Bixby/Ferrigno Banner & Hulk, they are way overdue, and if anyone could do it right, it would be Mego. Heck, if it were up to me, I’d take a whole line of TIH figures, including characters like Jack McGee, Frye’s Creature, TV Thor, etc.

    All that being said, if you could choose, what would your Top 5 Marvel Wants be? Mine:

    • Dr. David Banner (Bill Bixby)
    • The Hulk (Lou Ferrigno)
    • The Black Panther* (Removable Mask)
    • War Machine (Iron Man is one of my all-time favorite Megos, and I would just love to see an update of that.)
    • The Rhino (Need a villain, and Doom seems a little obvious. Would love to see this one with the Hulk/Thing larger body type.)


    I could go on and on with so many classic Marvel characters to choose from. But my top 2 are must haves, and the other 3 are off the top of my head. What would be your dream 5?

    (*I’ve heard Marty comment in a few recent interviews that Mego did have BP back in the day. Well, we'll take one now.)

    ! "Black Panther* (Removable Mask)": that'd be *so* cool!
    Personally, I'd really love a classic Jessica Drew "Spider-Woman".

    Submariner, Silver Surfer and more Spidey villains Electro and Vulture.

    I have wanted Hulk TV series figures my whole life. It's an absolute TRAVESTY that the most successful comic book TV series Marvel ever produced STILL has never had any official toys.


    A Ferrigno Hulk, Nicholas Hammond Spidey, and Reb Brown Cap NEED to happen.

    Hear, hear! I'm glad to hear others feel the same way, enyawd72. Awhile back, on another forum, I went so far as to list 8 figures that could be produced and released in two waves based on TIH. And, yes, of course the TV Spiderman & Captain America would fit in nicely. DC has even gone as far as recently releasing new figures based on The Flash 1990 TV Series and 1995's Batman Forever. It seems to me TIH is much more beloved and would sell better than those.

    And here's the great thing about Mego doing TIH figures, as opposed to completely sculpted/all plastic figures from Hasbro: The Hulk figure could be draped with a tattered shirt (like the old Mego 12") that matches the shirt Banner wears. Fans could then place the tattered shirt onto Banner to depict a post-transformation David. How fun would that be? May the Mego gods smile upon us and make this happen!!
