    Mego Spiderman - Why shows 1971 and the price

    Hi, I have a Mego Spiderman in great condition.
    On the back of it is written:

    "MEGO CORP
    REG. U.S. PAT. OFF.
    PAT. PENDING
    HONG KONG
    MCMLXXI"

    I found that is was only released in 1973, but I have it since I was little and I know it's original.
    Does anyone know why it has the date 1971?

    I'm planning to sell it - just the toy, without the box.
    Does anyone know what the correct amount to charge?

    Thanks

    My guess would be that they had numerous bodies used in the Action Jackson line. They would just had to change the hands to red, add spider head and suit. Depending on the shape of the figure, you may get $20-$75 for it.
    Out of curiosity, why sell the figure and not the box?

    I think you could find a buyer easily enough, but I think most of us here would caution against selling a toy you had 50 years ago. It isn't going to bring a substantial amount unless it's a circle suit Spiderman.

    You could just hold onto it for nostalgia keeping something you had since childhood but that’s totally your call.
    I’d like to see a pic of it out of curiosity, you might get a buyer here instead of going thru ebay.

    You could always pick up a reproduction box if you wanted too.
