> i remember having these two figures as a kid in the mid 1975 era,i had the 2 figures and their car play set,i remember their car ran off of 6 d batteries and had 2 doors that opened,and the siern was a removable light you could install on their roof and remove,i remember their car was like a bump and go action car it had a hidden fifth wheel in the front and if it ran into the wall it would turn and go the other way,i remember the play set came with a street lamp,a guarbage can and a road barrier device. does anyone know where i could find photos of this set ,i would love to show my 6-year old my favorite toy when i was his age.

>I had Mego Hutch when I was a youngster, but missed out on the other figures and car. Too bad Mego didn't incorperate these into their 3 3/4" line of figures.

>I only had Starsky, because he was my favorite. And, my dad would've only let me have one. I identified with Starsky, because he and I both had wavy, curly hair. So, I wasn't alone. My figure became the victim of a Mattel Slime attack and was hideously soiled.

>This had to be my favorite show growing up! And even with the re-runs on "TV Land"... not to mention the addition of the movie that came out not too long ago. If you haven't seen it, I suggest, you go see it. It'll keep you laughing, especially the prison scene. Gosh! What a riot!

>I'm with you on the imagination issue. When my son's toys break or batteries run outta juice he's forced into using his imagination. We're kind of mean parents, we don't replace batteries. :)

>Ha, I had both of them, Starsky and Hutch. I loved the show also. I also had the Ford Grand Torino that you could put them in. The red light would flash, and the car would spin around. The 70's had some of the coolest toys. Its called IMAGINATION. Us 70's kids had to have it.

>Never did the Mego thing, myself...however, my younger brother LIVES Mego figures, even to this day. I was more into the Aurora monster model kits back in the late 60's and early 70's.

>I had these two and their red car for about a month...I used to cram them into the car and then attach it with a long string to the back of my bike...I hauled their butts all over the place...to really add some fun I would cram some cherry bombs inside as well (inter-connected with a delayed fuse of course)and then set them ablaze...what a hoot...eventually the whole setup came to an unfortunate end when I hauled them by string across a busy highway and a semi flattened them out...what a frickin' mess!

>Mego were the very Lords as far as I was concerned in the 1970s. (Well that was until I first heard The Sex Pistols a little later on!) The Starsky and Hutch figures were really cool and looked a lot like the actors. I had the Gran Torino which you could just about squeeze them in to. In England I don't recall ever seeing Huggy and Dobey but made do with having S and H hanging around and fighting characters from the other Mego lines. Very much like the two guys from PLANET OF THE APES and THE DUKES OF HAZZARD too but Mego insisted that characters were sculpted after the likeness' of the actors and are to be applauded for this. They don't make toys for kids like this any more.
