As reported HERE, Marty Abrams’ (pictured below) influential toy company – Mego Corporation – is returning to store shelves with new 8-inch figures, 14-inch figures, and 8-inch figure 2-pack dioramas. This Target e xclusive line of Mego collectibles will be available in stores and online July 29 at prices ranging from $14.99 to $29.99.
Licensed figures on display at San Diego Comic-Con included Sulu from Star Trek, Harley Quinn from DC, rock legend Jimi Hendrix, Tootie from The Facts of Life, an I Dream of Jeannie 2-pack, and more. The focus of the figures looks to be retro nostalgia, bringing back a time when Mego ruled the toy industry. Will that still hold true today? Target sales will tell soon enough, but I extend a big hats off to Marty for at least making the effort.
