Mego’s The Greatest American Hero Action Figures (1982)

Mego Ad 1982

Mego Ad 1982-2

Ever wonder why Mego went bankrupt? Here you go. According to the Mego Museum, it’s “the last licensed product” the company produced, although only the “Free-Wheeling Convertible Bug” set made it into stores, and in very limited quantities. The 8″ figures are positively frightening. Check out the forehead on Connie Sellecca!

“Kids love him because he’s goofy.” No. No we don’t.

    I remember watching this show and thinking “meh”. I never remember wanting to play with toys or act out any of their adventures. I could see Han and Leia going on a date in that bug though.

    The writing was on the wall for Mego as soon as they passed on Star Wars. Stuff like Greatest American Hero was just their sad, sad death throes…

    Were they ever released? Because if not Funko Reaction could always step up to the plate.

    The word “zaniest” is like garlic for non-vampire kids.

    Greatest American Hero was one of the lamest shows of the 80s. Sad, really.
