There has been a fairly massive resurgence of Mego-style action figures over the last several years. We have gotten Real Ghostbusters, Venture Bros., Universal Monsters, and even Doctor Who! I have a fondness for the 8″, clothed figures because the Megos were some of the first toys I had when I was a kid. Maybe I’ll post a little bit about that later in the week.
There’s one line in this resurgence that caught my attention when it was first announced but that I never bought anything from – Star Trek.
When I first saw the reproductions in Previews I thought they looked awesome, but I wasn’t in the market for a new line to collect at the time. Every successive release has tempted me, but I knew I would be getting into a whole new world of toys if I got started. I mean, it’s not like you can just buy one member of the crew and call it a day. I almost gave in when Diamond solicited the reproduction of the original Enterprise playset by Mego.
