    Did anyone mention Speed Racer? As for the 5 choices in the video, I think all of them are great and would appreciate (and BUY) if Mego would put them on shelves. But I fear that any property that has obtained a CULT status would make obtaining that licence all the more difficult.
    I find it very likely that since "Mego" action figures, being a POP Culture icon in their own right; could only deepen the Cult status of any property they associate with.
    Most vintage movies and TV shows can be found and streamed online now-a-days. People just need the inspiration to do so and having action figures of these properties on the shelves may do this. We all know how toys have cemented characters in the public mind as Star Wars did. So I'm thinking we get a "Thundarr or BOTP" action figure and before you know it HollyWeird is pushing that much harder to make the Thundarr Movie or Battle of the Planets for the Big screen.

    So, this struck me with your all-caps use of POP -- what is it that's made Funko Pop vinyl figures so ubiquitous? and could Mego find a way to strike a similar chord with its licenses? I see the Pop's all over the clients' offices -- Doctor Who, Walking Dead, MCU Avengers -- could Mego do the same? Could Mego figures from properties from Mystery Science Theatre 3000 to Unbreakable be the next fun office thing?

    The true secret to Pop's success is they don't need actor likeness, just the logo basically. Mego has to get likenesses as 2018 has proven.

    The question is does anyone else want those. And is Night Court not a lame 80s sitcom? A Harry Anderson figure is probably not on too many people's wishlists. Some may work like Miami Vice as a two pack simple and done I one set. POTA has been tried twice lately in the scale and didn't go anywhere. An NFL or MLB line may do ok since there is no starting lineup around anymore. Image, not sure if they still have the pull they did in the 90s. Highlander might do well if they can get all the likenesses lined up. If say Connery is not willing to sign off on it, the line would seem incomplete like the Brady Bunch and 1999 did from FTC. V would be another easy one to get done with just a few figures. Airwolf would be like Knightrider kind of sucky without the vehicle.

    Wouldn't mind a Richard Moll figure tho. He'd make a great goon for Egghead.
