Conan Mego!

I spotted this minty carded vintage Conan Mego figure and just had to post the pics. You can practically smell the 1970's coming off this thing...

That dolly has beautiful locks for hours of brushing fun.

I always liked Mego! I used to have some of the Star Trek ones and a Spider-Man doll. I saw that Toys r Us is carrying reissued Mego dolls.

Yeah, my Batman was always my favorite and I just scored one in really great condition a little while back, along with a Spider-man in okay condition.

With my Conan that makes 3 that I have and I even bought the new Bats and Superman at TRU.

Oh, and calling them "dolls" only encourages Bubbashelby. ;)

The funny thing is, the face reminds me of Arnold Schwarzenegger. Maybe he was hired to play Conan because he looked like the Mego figure? ;)

With a face like that, he really needs to be sitting on a barbie toilet! :P

That particular shade of orange should be renamed sixties shag, or seventies sofa...and a gigantic "HAIL!" to you Chad...welcome to CROM, the greatest place on earth.

I need no encouragement ;)

That's a custom card. Not original to the era but the figure is.

Was aware that there was a Conan Mego from the pictures on the back of the boxes. Never even saw one for real and up close. It, like The Thing doll, was a holy grail of shopping. Cool pic.

And does anyone else in the world have trouble typing in a verification code to publish comments but me?

Nah, it's not just you Gary, those word verifications can be tricky at times. Maybe your browser is part of the problem - if you're using IE try something else.
