Mego Ad - 1976

The rare Mego ad which featured Aquaman, this beauty came to me via F.O.A.M. member Brian Heiler's Plaid Stallions blog (how could you tell?). Thanks Brian!

This ad only featured DC characters; this was after DC and Marvel had made it clear to Mego they didn't want their characters co-mingling so you had company-specific ads like this one.

Superman, Supergirl, and Riddler are so friendly!

Man, I loved those toys when I was a kid.

It's like you posted my shopping list on your blog!

Rob, this is actually the DC licensing company, not MEGO. The fine print says something along the lines of "You TOO can make money by using our characters' images. Contact us for more details!" So ofcourse it would be DC only. :-)

Yeah LCA handled lots of cool properties back in the day, they may have had Marvel at this point as well.
