Star Trek (Mego)



Star Trek
Mego
1974-1976

Not to be mistaken with our original Star Trek post

The original 8 inch line of Mego Star Trek based "dolls" are fantastic pieces of plastic work, and today stand as a fan favorite among Trek and Mego collectors. The line was produced in three waves (or series), and featured two themes.

Series one encompassed a fair amount of the Starship Enterprise crew, but didn't, and would not go on to entail them all. Kirk, Spock, McCoy and Scottie were the first four of only five characters to be developed into the line. Lt. Uhura would join them in series two, but the remainder of the line focused strictly on aliens.

SERIES 1
Captain Kirk* Mr. Spock*Mr. McCoy (Bones)
Mr. Scott (Scottie)*Klingon

When series two was developed, the front of the package was updated to showcase all the new characters available - However, Uhura would be the only (and last) cast member produced.
SERIES 2
Captain Kirk* Mr. Spock*Mr. McCoy (Bones)
Mr. Scott (Scottie)*Lt. Uhura*Klingon

The remainder of series two was developed under the sub-header, "Aliens". This sub series would also be the only type of figures produced for the third and final wave.
SERIES 2
The Keeper*The Gorn
Cheron*Neptunian
SERIES 3
Andorian*The Romulan
Talos*Mugatu

A couple playsets were produced to coincide with the line, and to date remain the most difficult to track down.

U.S.S. Enterprise Action Playset*Mission to Gamma VI
