I have mentioned this in previous post numerous times. But I figured I should address the question precisely and see if any knowledge exists regarding distribution of Mego's back in the day. I know Brian H. had a lot of insider knowledge on this issue due to his Dad's job.
In the towns outside of Pittsburgh PA. in the early seventies we had a Montgomery Wards. From this location I recieved my first Batman, Robin & Batmobile. I was there at purchase and noted several Mego's available. I also assume this is where an earlier Christmas AJ & Snowmobile were bought. Later after this store was closed. A K-mart had been cunstructed and became the leading shopping outlet for the area. Their Mego stock seemed less impressive as Marx and GI Joe ate up more of the toy aisle. Also Note in regards to Marx. Pittsburgh is near W.V. The home of Marx toys. So was it my location or the outlet venues or other that led to the Mego Poor showing in my childhood?
