First time poster here. I was "too old" to even notice Mego's when they came out in the 70's but I did have Captain Action and Major Matt Mason in the 60's. Anyway, I saw Benjamin's book at my local bookstore and, despite the fact that I knew next to nothing about the WGSH figures, I was smitten with the quantity and quality of the photographs. I immediately googled Mego when I got home, found this website, signed up and ordered the book online to save almost $20 from the store price. I have enjoyed it very much since I received it a couple of weeks ago.
Okay, so then I search on eBay to see what Mego superhero figures are available and how much they go for when I see a 12" Batman still in the package for a Buy It Now price of $74.95. I'm thinking that sounds like a good deal but I don't know enough about Mego collecting to pull the trigger. Also, I've been spending a ton on the Bay lately, but that's beside the point.
My question is; what is the relative value of the 12" figures compared to the 8" and, if there is a big difference, why?
Thanks a lot.
