    Who Made the Best Mego Like Figure?

    Just curious to see who everyone likes the best.

    Bogi (Tong), Paco's predecessor.

    They made Pipo and Dondy Clowns, Western Legends, Vader Abraham, Demo Girl, Demo Man, Action Apeman, Sandokan, Ninjas, and the 1776 People.

    AHI's First Version Universal Monsters are about as close to regular Megos as any knockoff figure I've owned. Their heads are a similar rigid vinyl like Mego and their clothes are sorta close. It's a real shame quality dropped off incredibly afterwords.

    Tomland fer sure. Aside from the holy trinity of Mego heroes/apes/trek, Tomlands are at the top of the heap. They represent EVERYTHING I love about cheap vintage toys. The fact that they are kinda "crappy" is exactly why they are so durned awesome!

    Oh yea, AHI's and LINCOLNS are great too!

    The "best" figures aren't necessarily the ones you like the most.

    LJN is my pick by a mile. Not only was the body (both styles) VERY similar, so was the subject matter.

    I am going with LJN, as well. However AHI is a close 2nd. In fact, AHI had many great toys in the 70's, but don't get much recognition, these days.

    Rampart, this is Squad 51. How do you read?

    Well, that's how I chose. I like the Lincoln figures the best because of their cheese factor.

    Yeah, I figured most people would vote for their favourites. I was just trying to get people to think about it a little more before going with their first choice.

    The best Mego-like figures would, technically, have to be the ones that used actual Mego molds, like Multiple's Menudo figures and Timm Mee's western line.
