    Mego and Marvel

    Is there any chance these days for Mego Marvels via the Hasbro route?
    Seems to me from what I recall growing up in the 70's once I get Joker, Penguin my mind fills with Lizards and Goblins no?

    I would love to see Mego get the rights to produce Marvel characters---the Lizard is my all time favorite figure they ever made and I'd love to see an updated version. It would also be great for some new Marvel characters to join the roster.

    Until the time when Mego can produce Marvel characters again, I would love to see Mego make 'homage' figures using the DC 'equivalents'---Black Spider for Spider-Man, Blockbuster for Hulk, and Commander Steel for Captain America, Killer Croc for Lizard, and so on.

      In the last Livestream Marty was asked about Marvel. His comment was that they are past "no". I would love to see 50th anniversary versions of the Marvel characters with never produced characters added.

        They said maybe in the live stream.
        To be truthful I do not know who I would want besides the Spidey villains. I have the others.

          I am sure Hulk, Iron-Man, Thor, Captain America would be a hit. Anyone think they might outsell Superman, Batman, Robin etc?

            Getting the Marvel license would be the icing on the cake for Mego. Definitely Spider-Man and Captain America, Iron Man and Thor, a correct size Hulk maybe a little bigger than the others say 10 inches and the Fantastic Four. For villains, Goblin, Dr. Doom and Loki.

              Given the Mouse House's tight controls and probably HUGE asking fees for licensing, I can't imagine Mego agreeing on a price.

              BUT... I could see Mego expanding the live to include some of today's MCU-popular characters like Guardians or Ant Man and the Wasp.
              WANTED - Solid-Boxed WGSH's, C.8 or better.

                Yes, exactly. I mentioned this in another thread as well, I think. Read some of the nightmare stories about how Disney’s overbearing micromanaging has nearly killed the Star Wars lines from Hasbro. Star Wars used to be an evergreen line when it came to toys, now so much of the product is just dying on shelves or getting shipped off to Ollie’s, Big Lots, Five Below, and other discount chains. They STILL have product from TFA and TLJ rotting away on their shelves.

                  If Mego got Marvel, it would likely be a deal through collaboration with Hasbro these days, similar to what they did with Ghostbusters. Hawking 50th Anniversary type figures is probably Mego's best bet, as the DC 50th figures seem to be doing well. They sold out at my Walmart stores well before Christmas, and I don't exactly live in a hotbed of toy and Mego collectors...

                    I’m guessing even if Mego got Marvel, we probably wouldn’t see Iron Man with a nose this time.

                      I don't have any thoughts about what the chances may be, but I am hoping that they can work out a way for it to happen. I gave up on finding a non-zombie Mr. Fantastic a long time ago and I would like to add a few others I don't have to my display such as Green Goblin and Lizard.

                        45 years later ... and still no The Incredible Hulk TV Series figures.

                            I agree, Spider-Man and Captain America since they were actually the very first Marvel characters mego made on the type-1 bodies.

                            I would be happy if mego could at least get the rights for those two figures.

                              If any of the decision makers on the side who holds the Marvel license have a soul, they will GLADLY let Marty reproduce the very figures which paved the way for their existence.
