Mego’s The Black Hole Action Figures (1979)

Black Hole Booth

Black Hole Reinhardt-3

Black Hole Sentry 1979-2

Black Hole Vincent

Black Hole Sentry 1979-3

A closer look at all the Black Hole figures I talked about many internet ages ago—here. Old Bob, S.T.A.R., and Humanoid figures were released in Italy only.

The highest price point I could find on a carded figure is $2.43 (Reinhardt). The lowest is $.91 (Durant). I also found one marked down to $.97 (Holland).

UPDATE (12/19/15): Adding a Harry Booth marked down to $.88. That’s what happens to traitors!

    I had the cool ones, the robots. Old B.O.B. was hard to find, I can’t remeber if i ever had it.

      Bob wasn’t released in the U.S. Thanks for the reminder. I edited the post. I’m still looking for a set of the Italian carded figures.

      I had Max and the Sentry, but Vincent was hard to find. I never got him. I had all of the humans, I think. They were cheap!

    That red robot, Maximillain still freaks me out. That part where he kills that guy with his drill arm, burrowing through a book he was carrying, gave me nightmares as a child. Classic movie. It’s hard to believe Disney was involved with this. The same Disney that gives us some of the worst music created by mankind (Radio Disney, ). They do have that Debbie Ryan chick though (best rack on TV, hands down).

    There were definitely alot of creepy masks in the 80’s. Friday the 13th, Martian Chronicles, Eric Stoltz, that weird toy line, etc.. Has M.A.S.K. been featured here? Transformers mixed with G.I. Joe and masks. A trifecta of 1980’s kid stuff.

      Haven’t done M.A.S.K. yet. I do need to tackle more late ’80s properties, but I just don’t find them as interesting as earlier lines.

        M.A.S.K. was cool the toys looked great! I was a little too old to be buying the toys, I just secretly watched the cartoon before school.

    I wish they would be redone by Reaction toys.

    I had a buddy growing up who’s dad customized a Vincent figure into Old Bob, which came out awesome. He made him a S.T.A.R figure as well out of one of the sentries. His dad was into models and used his tools and model paints to customize the figures. There was great detail, down to Bob having round eyes and his head sitting crooked, and missing one of his “engines” on his foot.. Full paint jobs as well. Good times.

    As was said earlier, for a Disney movie, this was very dark. I always enjoyed it.

    You’re right about the late 80’s toys. It may have been because I started playing alot of D&D at that time, but I didn’t really get into toys like T.M.N.T.. I also frequented comic shops, so finding the original T.M.N.T. comics and RPG made the cartoon look kind of dumbed-down.

    He-Man? Yikes. Thundercats was pretty bad too. It reminded me of Voltron with annoying cat people instead of cool robot cats with annoying kids piloting them. If that makes sense. The robot thing seems important here. More “I, Robot” and less “I, Anthropomorphised Cat Swordsman”.
