Couldnt see a thread for DC Mego figures but saw some new listings on BBTS for some new Mego 50th figures (no pictures as yet)
- Dr Fate
- Red Tornado
That Dr Fate looks too cool.
Anyone know when the Big Lots exclusive figures will be in the store?
I regretted not ordering Firestorm, Dr Fate and Red Tornado, so I've been checking on them every day at BBTS. I lucked out today and must have gotten 1 of each from a cancelled order. Hopefully the wave ends up being available at more places.
I just read that Mego made 50th anniversary figures for Big Lots. I read some people saw them in September. I just checked my local Big Lots and I didn't see any. They only had about 2 aisles for toys. I did look around because I found the figures sold at Walmart in the electronics/collectors section instead of the toy aisles.
Superman looks like the Fleischer cartoons. Batman & Robin have removable masks and are supposed to look like the Batman TV show. Joker is also available & apparently is based off of the Batman TV show as well.
Happy hunting for those who are collecting.
I still haven't found Batman, Green Arrow, Penguin & Riddler. I may check online if I get impatient. I usually see Penguin & Riddler on amazon but Batman & Green Arrow are elusive.
Mego and 12 inch GiJoe were my favorite toy lines in my childhood. I have bought Star Trek Megoes but have not jumped down the DC rabbit hole as of yet. Now they are going to be doing Marvel. The Resistance is getting futile........
No surprise, distribution is extremely spotty for these. I’ve been hitting multiple Big Lots for weeks, even enlisting a District Manager, with no luck. Ended up getting a Batman from ebay. Don’t want to even think about how much time and gas I’ve wasted.
They really should stick to the 50th Anniversary boxes going forward (and when they start doing Marvel characters). The blister cards aren't that well designed. They should more intentionally mimic the retro style packaging.
