Cool Stuff!

Let's see if there'll be room for anything else after I finish the Mego Parade!

Next, up this 1964 Aurora Batman model!

Moving on... it's The Avengers! As in John Steed and Emma Peel, that is...

Did any of you guys ever see this set of figures when they came out? I don't think I'd ever heard of them at all! Ah, well... how does a bunch of stills from the TV show sound for our next selection?

(for the uninitiated, that's Honor Blackman in the picture above... she pre-dated Diana Rigg on the series, portraying Kathy Gale)

(the above two photos show Linda Thorson, who played Tara King, the replacement for Emma Peel on the program)

  1. mmm. Green Arrow's Car looks pretty much like it did in the comic.. and i think i came out before, by why did Mego waste money on 'fleshings' (as they used to be called) for Tarzan.. that's meant to be his skin, so just don't bother and it'll look better.. (by the way, since when is lord greystoke one of the 'World's Greatest Superheroes' (come to think.. since when is Sue Storm/Richards one either?)

  2. Awww I miss my Green Arrow mego.

    I need a time machine so I can slap some sense into my younger self!

  3. MM -By the 1970s, GA hadn't been using an Arrowmobile for quite some time, and it looked a bit different from this!

    The flesh-colored coverings? Never made sense to me, either... they abandoned the practice when they got around to doing Isis and Conan, fortunately, but didn't rework the other figures that had it.

    Tarzan was included, I imagine, because the license was available cheaply!

    Al - I know what you mean!

  4. Jon,
    Re: "Tara King, the replacement for Emma Peel on the program"

    Perish the thought! NO ONE could replace Emma!
