ANNOUNCEMENT: MEGO NORTH and the BURLINGTON TOY SHOW join forces for January!!
Mego was the legendary toy company that dominated the North American toy aisles throughout the seventies. Although it produced action figures and toys in many scales, it is best know for the 8” format with cloth outfits. Toy lines included The World’s Greatest Superheroes, featuring DC and Marvel characters, as well as Conan and Tarzan, Star Trek, Planet of the Apes, Happy Days, Kiss, Zorro, the Mad Monsters, the Dukes of Hazard, Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon, James Bond, The Micronauts, and even Doctor Who!
Mego North is a casual gathering of collectors and enthusiasts of Mego Action Figures and vintage toys of that era. There will be a dedicated section of the Burlington Toy Show where The Mego Museum/Plaid Stallions and other vendors will be set up, with vintage, custom, and modern Mego figures for sale and display.
