    How does Mego get the rights to He-Man, when the Mattel owns it hook line and sinker? Same as GI Joe.

    I need my fiction anchored in some science here.
    The catalog is called 1983 IMAGINED. How about imagining Mattel was one that went out of business and not Mego?

    Sean has tackled he-Man, beast man and skeletor if they're something you think fits.
    I have the 18" vintage Kenner Alien figure - I could break it down, scan it, shrink it to Mego-scale maybe.

    Mind... BLOWN. I wish to visit this alternate 1983, where Mego took a chance on Star Wars and became the dominant force in action figures. To the TARDIS!

No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carries the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life... or death. It shall be life."

    Oh wow, now I really want a Mego Magnum, PI. Great job!
    I pity the fool who doesn't appreciate a geeky girl.

    Kind of surprised our little buddy Action Jackson wasn't featured. Thinking Mego would've re-introduced the line to compete with Hasbro's GI Joe A Real American Hero. Forgot about Tron. Could've seen Mego altering either the ST:TMP or Buck Rogers 3.75" molds for an action figure line.

    Neat concept on the video but I don't think Mego would have put out a promotional video consisting of nothing but ideas and TV clips. Would be supercool to see that same video content replaced with custom figures and a voiceover announcer like the original mego presentations.

    Cool video!

    Great ideas too. Mego did plan Rocky figures, which PAC/ Phoenix ended up producing. This has been thrown around in the past, and I agree with the theory that LJNs Magnum PI figure was probably a Mego designed toy. I always felt Tri-Stars MASH line was a Mego salvage as well.
    im positive they would have snatched up the ATeam as well. Most likely in 3 3/4".
    WWF?-- why not? They did ( well PAC did) Hogans Thunderlips character from Rocky..... Wouldn't take much of a leap to expand the figure style into wrestlers.
    Trek II---- that would have been FANTASTIC!!!

    Just wanted to point out that G.I. Joe A Real American Hero may not exist in this alternate reality, because Mego made the Star Wars line in 8 inch form, they may not have decided to discontinue the Super Joe line. Perhaps kids would have stayed intrested in Super Joe because it would go well with their Mego Star Wars figures. Just a theory, though.
    The hands that grip.
