Yeah,my favorite mego superhero was and always will be Spider-man! He was the coolest! I guess I was 10 when I got him and I played with him every day! I made spiderman costumes out of my pj's and made nets out of my moms' yarn. I remember one year for Hanakka my mom said I got him and I couldn't wait till the next day and got him out of the closet where he was being held captive and played with him for weeks! Ah,good times!

I grew up watching the 60s Batman series as a kid, but I never had the figures until recently. I got one of the kids I baby-sit into the series, and he loves it so much, he wanted Megos and a Batcave. Instead of getting one off of Ebay, I decided to make a Batcave for him. I got him a Mego Batman, and customized a Robin , Joker and Riddler. Here are the pics:

Best days of my youth playing with my Mego Batman & Robin along with
all of the Evil doers of Gotham. I don`t know how many times I had to go to
all of the kids in my neighbourhood to get them back because my little
brother kept selling them on me. But my biggest mistake was giving them all
away to my Nephew. If I could go back in time I would say, Hey screw you
kid, these are mine & I`m keeping them.

Here I sit on Christmas morning reminiscing about Christmases long, long ago...but then again, not so very long ago...As with most others submitting their memories of the Mego series of our favorite Super-hero's and Villans here, my first Mego was Batman. I was heavy into Batman on TV and comic books at that time so I loved playing with him. I eventually got a Robin Mego, but, since I couldn't convince my dad that I really did need their actual adversaries, like The Joker, Penguin, etc., my Batman and Robin had to do battle with whatever villans I could come up with; usually other various generic, unamed action figures...These little guys were so simple in their construction and I don't remember them having any accessories...not even a Batarang, as I recall. I think I made my Batman and Robin one each, and used some of my mom's sewing thread that would allow them to scale the heights of whatever cardboard box or couch or chair that they needed to climb. And even though they were so simply and, yes, probably cheaply constructed, the hours of imaginative play that they allowed us in some of the simplest, most carefree days of our lives is priceless. Merry Christmas to all...Chrismases past, Chrismases present, and Chrismases future, Merry Christmas...

Mego's what can i say, as a kid these were cheap pocket money toys. My uncle bought me five from woolworths in Blackpool while i was there on holiday in 1974 they were as follows Batman,Robin,Spiderman,Joker,and Superman.I remember taking them to school and playing with them in the "mego corner",when i pulled mine out the lads asked what is the black button on their back for? I said "well they fist fight don't they?" It appeared theirs didn't,and they were sick as parrots.I played with figures until they looked like old tramps! I have recently got the five fist fighters back again from shows and the net,but let me tell you something those little fellas cost a lot more now than in the 70's! As my wallet found to it's cost! Fantasic toys and THE BATMAN was my favourite! Cheers Stu pot.

I had Batman, Capt. America and Aquaman figures. For some reason, I thought it was really funny that they wore these little vinyl mittens in place of gloves. (I was 5 or 6 at the time) My dad took them away from my brother and me because we wouldn't stop saying, "These aren't gloves, they're mittens!"

I started getting back into the Mego collecting biz late last year. I've managed to score a removable cowl Batman & removable mask Robin(both T1 bodies) in excellent shape(Batman's cowl is a repo, but I'm not picky). As of this writing, I've aquired roughly 20+ 8" Megos(Superheroes, Dinah Mite, Action Jackson, Star Trek, & Planet Of the Apes). I've also been collecting the 3 3/4" figures(Dukes Of Hazzard, Buck Rogers, Star Trek:The Motion Picture, The Black Hole, & CHIPS). But, it all started with Mego's interpratation of "the dynamic duo".

Mego figures are awesome! I remember my Dad bringing me home the prototype Batman with removeable cowl before they hit the shelves at Kresges or K-mart. He was a manager or district manager at the time, and that was the spark that started my interest in Super Heroes and Mego collecting. Today I have over 50 Mego figures and I buy, sell, trade, refurnish and collect them.

My earliest and happiest memories are assocciated to BATMAN. Every night when i was young my dad would tell me batman and robin stories i remember like it was yeaterday when i got a mego batman figure. I cant have been more than 5 years of age, one day i wanted to bring him to school and i remember my dad standing over me and saying 'no someone will rob him on you' as with everything he told me i didnt listen and as with everything he was right. I remember a bigger boy taking my batman and throwing him up on a roof. I cried and cried and when i got home my dad came back to school with me but my batman was gone. It really effected me, imagine my delight when i tracked one down on the net and 25 years after loosing my original batman i have a replacement. He has pride of place in my own sons room and trust me he wont be making any more visits to schools.

There was this toyshop I would frequent, and eventually collected all of these action figures, including the Batmobile.
They were all so incredibly posable, with joints almost identical to human anatomy, which allowed them to be placed in so many different positions, which made playtime that much more fun and imaginative.
The faces are quite detailed, and the intricately designed costumes are of a high quality, are removable and stretchable, so they have preserved nicely.

I had the Robin doll/s. I seemed to get one every time I partipated in a family wedding. I only had two. I don't remember much about it, I wonder why I never got the Batmen one? Anyway it's great to get see a picture of them.

When I was in 5th grade, I got hit in the eye with an acorn and was laid up in bed for two weeks, with BOTH eyes covered, and had to lie still so the eye would heal. As a reward for this ordeal, my Mom bought me the Mego Batman figure I had wanted. And it was the first edition one with the removable cowl, too! I was crazy for that figure, and took great care of it.... until.... his hand broke off. And his Bat symbol started to wear away. And his cape started to come apart. I swear, I don't remember playing rough with the thing, but after all that happened? Well, I saved the cowl, but the figure, I felt, had failed me. So, as I wrote in an entry about old G.I. Joe, my unlucky Batman figure became an animal behavior test subject: we wrapped him in a slab of bologna and threw him to my German Shepherd to see if he'd tear him apart. He just ended up eating the bologna and licking Batman. A lot.

Robin was my favorite...mom couldn't keep him away. I loved the colorful outfit...and always watching the old 60s version of batman on TV. To bad I can't find him in original outfit without paying out the rear end for him.

I too had the removeable cowl Batman. This was the only Mego I had. He was awesome, and I always kept everything together. One day, I moved an arm, and it all came apart.. Mom wouldnt find anyone to fix it.. so out he went. I now have a Batman and Robin off of e-bay.. (I collect Batman stuff) Robin in very sorry shape.. batman is in ok shape.. but missing the cape, and gloves.

My memory is really about Robin. At about age 12, I studied ancient Egypt in school and really got into it. I read every book about Egypt I could find. Eventually, I decided that I needed to mummify something. The cat and dog were obvious targets, but dad ruled them out. My attention turned to Robin and Evel Knievel, late of the Stunt Cycle. I mummified both of them, following the detailed instructions from my research as much as possible. I made incisions to remove their "vital organs", I rubbed them down with fragrant oils, I left them out to dry in the sun, then wrapped them in bandages. Dad's watch boxes became the sarcophagi. I buried Robin Hotep and King Evel in the backyard under a plaster of paris pyramid. Plaster of paris is not the most durable substance outside. The pyramid is long gone, and so is my recollection of where I buried them. Mom still lives in that house, but I've never found Robin or Evel.

Batman was my childhood! I would absolutely wear these things out. My kids are now into it. My 7 year-old daughter just watched the 1966 version of "BATMAN: The Movie" today. I have two of these Mego characters on my dresser right now...a mint Batman and Robin! Long live the classics!!

i had robin. not batman. i also had the star trek playset with captain kirk and spock. if i had known how much they would be worth now, i never would have played with them and kept them (IF MOM HADN'T THROWN THEM ALL OUT!!!!!). heck, if anyone who was a kid in the 70's had just not played with their toys, we'd all be millionaires!

As a kid in Corpus Christi, Texas, in 1975, I recall my pop letting me pick out a Mego ( $2.99!) whenever we'd stop by the supermarket. The Batman character line was, of course, the coolest. The clumsy design of the dolls echoed the camp of the Adam West TV show. The only thing I didn't dig: the Mego Batmobile wasn't large enough! It was out of scale to the action figures.

I had Batman and Robin, and also Superman and Aquaman. Good stuff. I wish I still had them.
There are lots of toys from those days that I wish I still had. My mom donated our old toys to the church every few years. (Yes, even my Star wars stuff!!)
If I ever have children, I will never give their toys away. So many things I wish I still had. (I do still have my Tonka snorkel fire truck though, with most of its parts.)

I had the first edition of this action figure and regret giving it to charity when I outgrew it. The first run was really special, Batman (and the Robin action figure) had a removeable mask. In the subsequent runs, the mask and head were all one unit of molded plastic. I shudder to think what it would be worth today because of the removeable mask.
