Lavishly illustrated with thousands of charts, checklists and color photographs, Mego 8" Super-Heroes (full-color hardcover) is an obsessive examination of legendary toy company Mego (pronounced 'ME-go'), and the extraordinary line of super-hero action figures that dominated the toy industry throughout the 1970s.
Featuring a chronological history of Mego, interviews with former employees and Mego vendors, fascinating discoveries never revealed elsewhere, and thorough coverage of each figure and packaging variant, this full-color hardcover is the definitive guide to Mego.
Brad Meltzer, New York Times-bestselling author and writer of DC's Justice League of America raves, 'I've waited thirty years for this magical, beautiful book.' And Chip Kidd, internationally-recognized graphic designer and author of Batman Collected, deemed it '...a stunning visual experience.'

For many of us Mego Toys were the 'Rosebud' of our childhoods. This book is a wonderful trip down memory lane. It's a beautifully written and wildly entertaining read. Going through this book triggered a flood of memories. For the first time in years, I recalled the small details about playing with my favorite childhood toys. How the decal on Batman's chest would come off, how the utility belts fastened together....It all came back to me. For most of us....this book is the closest we'll come to replicating our old collections. I really love this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
