Welcome back! Mego Corp. returns to Action Figure production


Collectors of a certain vintage, like myself, are well aware of the Mego product from the 1970's with licences like Marvel and DC, but also lines like Doctor Who and Star Trek. The company went bankcrupt in 1983 and the brand name has remained dormant for some time. Only recently have we seen Mego inspired product from the likes of Diamond Select Toys, NECA and Mezco - with tailored clothing over a standard figure with a sculpted head and hands

In 2009 the Abraham Gentile Entertainment company (AGE) acquired the Mego brand name but nothing has really happened since then until March this year when a new Mego Corp. facebook account appeared.

This week, at the Mego Meet 2018, the current Mego Corp President Marty Abrahms announced that Mego was back, returning to mass market Action Figure production. The new line of 8" figures will be released in waves, and Mego promise a launch of 20 figures taken from a mix of licences and these will be the 8" Mego. We will find out more later in June - with important questions yet to be answered like the licences involved, and if these will be made in a retro style to match those of the 1970's - or if they will go down the more realistic route taken by NECA in recent years.
