Retro Star Trek Mego Spock. I was one of those kids that was alive during the 70s but never received any Megos. But hey, that’s buried history right? WRONG! I knew these dolls... sorry, action figures were coming out and I thought “meh” but when I saw the Mego Spock in the comic book store something came over me, a faded memory of playing with my cousin’s’ Star Trek Megos when I was about 5. Suddenly I just had to have it. It’s sitting next to me as I type this post. I’ll get the rest if I can, but I’ve already missed Mego Kirk and Mego Klingon.

I guess they're bringing back the Planet of the Apes Megos too. OH BOY! Better late than never to get on the Mego Bandwagon I guess.

Spock looks a bit like Martin Landau in that picture. Cool stuff.

It's an 70s toy, you may remember seeing it.

I remember the action figures, but my childhood was generally action-figureless. We had a few acres of forest and we were old-school play in the dirt type kids. Ma and pa weren't big on buying lots of stuff for the kids. There was some, but not a lot.

Everybody had an Atari 2600 but us (back when they were called just an Atari). We had a generic brand of Pong about the same time period.

Swinebread said...

I didn't think you had any megos, I didn't either, but I sure saw them around.

There was no Atari at my house either

"Planet of the Apes" Megos? Where do you get these things?

Swinebread said...

They're not out yet most likely late 2008.

Man, you gotta love squishy-headed action figures! The 70's was the era of action figures, wan't it?

Snab: Sorry about your action-figureless childhood. I must say that acres of woods and outdoor play don't negate action figures. I will guarantee that in the woods behind my old house, sitting un-decomposing among the leaves, are some teeny-tiny blue tricorders communicators and phasers.

When I was in elementary school I received, as a Christmas present, a full set of the Star Trek Megos (except the Klingon) as well as a carrying case that folded out into the bridge of the Enterprise including a "working" transporter. I also had Megos of Batman, Robin, Superman, Aquaman, and Wonder Woman as well as Cornelius and Zira from "Planet of the Apes". My parents realized (thank goodness) they might be worth something someday and stowed them away for safe keeping rather than toss them or "garage sale" them, but I did play with them a lot as a kid. They're not exactly in mint condition... I imagine they're collecting dust in my parents' attic.

Swinebread said...

Arkonbey - I think Megos are great even though I didn’t own any. I did have a few Star Wars figures.

Moody – You lucky boy, might your parents be interested in selling them?

Dean Wormer said...

It's easy to lose the little blue communicator and phaser. Be careful.

Swinebread said...

Well if I don't open the package...
