Farewell, Mr. Spock. The character portrayed by late Leonard Nimoy was featured on so many of our favorite Mego era toys. His passing reminded us of all the fun we had as children. Here are some of our favourite pieces at the Mego Museum.
Mr. Spcok Mego Museum Trading Card, one of our most popular.
The Vulcan Explorer was an item proposed by Mego but never made it to market. Scott Adams digitally recreated it based on Vinnie Baiera's description.
Mego Spcok got a starring role in the "Big Bang Theory" not too long ago in a fun send up of the old collector's dilemma, "Should I take it out of the box?"
THE MEGO ART OF NEAL ADAMS
Legendary comic artist Neal Adams had more than a small hand in shaping a 70s kid's happy childhood. Not onyl did he draw some of the more iconic DC and Marvel comics of the era but he also did some package design for the World's Greatest Toy Company.
A handful of us got to witness Adams walking into the MegoCon 2004 dealer's room pointing to various items stating "I did that!" and "I still have the original to that!". Here are some of our favourites that Adams produced for Mego.
