I am going to go out on a completely different angle here so please bear with me my friends
This is extremely interesting information as always Benjamin! Thanks for sharing!
Several years ago, I purchased a "Mego Mystery Man / Astronaut" from a person who was selling him in a factory baggie. I was extremely curious and asked a few more questions. Would you know it, he had a complete case of them "FACTORY BAGGED." I asked him where he purchased them and he said they came from a store that thought they were knock off G.I. Joes. The store just happened to have a case of them...I am saying at least 50+, though he would not tell me, he said it was MANY in the box. To Date, I have not seen another case of Mystery Astros. I believe, the origin still eludes us to what they actually are.
NOW.. Getting back to the Aquaman story, lets just say, these came the same way in baggies, but very limited like the Astros and is sitting in a warehouse somewhere. We are not clear how many Astronauts have turned up, but we do not it was not common. There may be only one specemin found right now of Aquaman, but as we quickly find out, MEGOS tend to turn up in the weirdist of places.
