Hi all - I found your website by accident while trying to research a toy I received for Christmas sometime in the 1970's - The Wizard of Oz Munchkinland. Boy, is this site a wealth of information and does it ever have a lot of very knowledgeable collectors. I had no idea that Mego was such a big thing, but as I'm reading a bunch of the threads I'm like - I remember that!, I had that, or I really wanted that! So Hi, and I'm looking forward to reminiscing

My name is Don. I am thrilled that I found this site. As a kid in the 1970's I grew up with Mego. Christmas of '74 and '75 was my introduction to Mego's(my brother did get The Penguin around '73 I believe. ) But for me it was the Planet of the Apes where it all began. I was an Apes nut. Xmas of '74 I got the treehouse and figures because I was a big fan of the tv show at the time. 1975 it was Star Trek Mego's for Xmas. Fast forward about 13 years and I got into the collectible world during the lunchbox boom of '88-'89. I was hitting the toy shows all over Mass and RI. I got into vintage toys after that buying and selling more than collecting. I subscribed to Toy Shop magazine...remember that publication anyone? Then in 1996-'97 came Ebay. I signed up right away and still selling anything and everything on the bay(an Ebay csr has told me I have one of the oldest accounts they have seen) Collectibles and vintage guitars are my thing. Recently I started to look into Mego's. I had sold a set of 8 ape figures and the treehouse about 14 years ago on ebay but nothing since. I just picked up a MOC Cornelius that will be up on there soon. So that's my story. Again glad to be here !

Hi, just posted about the upcoming Battlestar Galactica figures!
Have been a collector of Megos since 1973. We used to go to the local TG&Y for the Worlds Greatest Superheroes line. As a kid, I picked up Aquaman, Batman (removable cowl), Tarzan, Spiderman, Shazam, and others. I also collected the Planet of the Apes series.
Over the years I've added and sold from my collection. As I have thinned it out, I currently only have the four WGSH villains, Spider-man (in the box), all of the Apes, two of the Monsters (Frankenstein and Mummy). I have also added the TV Toys Dracula and Wolfman and the Pirates for my son. I also still have the Apes Treehouse and Forbidden Zone, but have sold the Throne, Catapult, Battering Ram, and Village.
I would one day like to re-add some of the superhero figures I had to sell, such as the T1 Aquaman and Tarzan.
I am grateful for a website and forum such as this to help relive some nice memories.
I am one of those that have searched for info on this site, but now I am ready to dive back in. I use to own a spiderman, Hulk and my brother had the Thing. One of my other brothers had Thor and I think I am obsessed with having that figure because he wouldn't let none of us touch it.

Hi folks! Sam from Australia here.
I have been a big fan of the Mego style for the last few years. Have spent much time here at the Mego Museum.
I actually found the forums while hunting for new info about Star Trek's Nurse Chapel release date...only to see she is cancelled. Devastating.
Was also looking for info about the Dark Shadows line, though that seems to be done as well. Entertainment Earth list Barnabas as coming in a few months, so maybe they are still working on things?
I'm sure this is an old discussion for everyone here, I just need to get the 'newb' questions out of the way.
Anyway, great to be here!

Hello, my name is KIKIDUC, I'm French and I collect dolls MEGO, ACTION JOE (the French GI Joe) and MARVEL comics and toys. I am the administrator of the french forum dedicated to toys MEGO : http://megocorp.xooit.fr/index.php. In France, there are many collectors of toys but very few that do collect dolls MEGO. To this day, I happened to come on your forum and on the SITE MEGOMUSEUM to learn something about the MEGO. I finally decided to pick me up as a member.

I'm Ed, I'm 43... Grew up with Mego Superheroes, Star Trek, and Apes. I have a modest collection of very good loose figs, but frequent trips to Japan for business have me creeping into Popy territory lately. I'm sampling a few of the new-skool Mego-types too. The ape is new.
