A comparison of the Mego Bend N Flex Cards

Carded Bend and Flexes provided by Brian and Scott Arendsen.

While cute to find loose, the BnF take on new meaning when found carded. Their packaging styles closely ape the Kresge cards at the time but come off even more visually striking than the 8" packaging. The Above chart shows that the Bend N Flex Heroes (strictly the men here) actually had three different kinds of packaging meaning they were part of the first wave. The gals and the baddies followed later and by that time Mego had settled for the "short card".

Other than the 8" figure, this is the only other Mego Tarzan figure. Mego had let the license expire by the time they were doing the Comic Action Heroes.


Captain America and Spiderman also came on early cards that mingled their artwork with the DC Heroes, it is difficult to find like all carded Marvels. Above is the long and short carded Cap.

The Supergals are of course, the toughest in this line.

Bendy Myx and Penguin command more respect than their 8" counterparts, must be the corrected scale.
