Book Description

March 19 2001 A Schiffer Book for Collectors
Toy action figures are tremendously popular collectibles, and many collectors argue that Mego is the premier maker. Super Heroes from comics, television and movie stories were made with interchangeable clothes, equipment and vehicles. In this new third edition of a classic collector's guide, all of these figures are shown with their original packaging in over 400 colour photographs, with newly updated values. Batman(R), Superman(R), Spiderman(R), Wonder Woman(R), Hulk(R), and the characters from Star Trek(R), The Dukes of Hazzard(R), The Wizard of Oz(R), Planet of the Apes(R), The Black Hole(R), Buck Rogers(R), Flash Gordon(R) and many more are included. Prototypes, never produced figures, and foreign exclusives join the regular production in this fun-filled reference.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good, almost great, book. April 4 2003
By El Tonio - Published on Amazon.com
I enjoyed this book quite a bit (couldn't put it down until I read it cover to cover as a mater of fact). It provides a lot of useful information, and I would consider this book a MUST for any Mego collector (though I'm not sure the latest edition is necessary). If I could make one change to this book, I would make it more of an "action figure archive" or "reference guide" and less of a price guide. It would have been very useful if the book spent more time telling us everything about each figure, including variations and accessories (kind of like the Mego Museum does), that would have made this a GREAT book. Also, this book seems to slight the WGSH figures a bit (i.e., not as much information or pictures about them as about the other figures). Don't get me wrong, I still found this book to be very useful and well worth the money (i.e., it did a lot of what I hoped, just not everything). In short, knowing what I know now, I still still buy this book, and I would encourage anyone interested in Mego figures to do the same.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent books for Mego lovers everywhere! July 16 1998
By Joe DeRouen - Published on Amazon.com
If you collect Mego action figures, this is your bible. This is the best source on Megos out there, bar none.
Sure, there are some problems with the book (doesn't list the Dinah-mite figures, for example) but it's the best out there right now.
If you collect Megos, you can't afford to be without this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have For Megomaniacs!!! Feb. 24 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
The pictures are fabulous! The history of the Mego Corpotion, which is quite interesting, is also included.
If you collect Megos, are thinking about collecting Megos, or are a toy enthusiast, you'll want to get this book about the company that revolutionized the toy market.
