Robin Hood (Mego)

Robin Hood

In the 70's, Mego pretty much had its hands in every toy line that they could - Well, with the exception of that one mistake not to nab the Star Wars license when it was first offered to them. Monsters, super heroes, movie characters, and more - They pretty much left no stone unturned.

Though there was no license procured for these figures between Mego, Errol Flynn and/or Warner Bros. Pictures, the figure for Robin Hood himself has a striking resemblance to the actor who played the leading role of the character in the 1939 Warner Bros. movie, The Adventures of Robin Hood. Intended, or a fortunate coincidence? You be the judge.

The figures are more so popular among Mego collectors today than they appear to have been when first released in 1974. Though they can be found in abundance, they're not necessarily cheap. Empty boxes sell for around $20.00, and mint in package figures fluctuate between $50.00 and $150.00. Unfortunately there's no real rhyme or reason for the variance in pricing suffice to say that it appears to be based on who's looking for them, and when.

  1. These are great, I especially like Friar Tuck. I look forward to the Space 1999 Megos, I used to have a few of these action figures, but not complete or boxed. Happy New Year!

    1. Thanks for reading and for the comment. We dug deep for the Space 1999 post, so we hope you enjoy it. If we may make a correction to your comment though (no offense intended) - the Space 1999 line was by Mattel, not Mego.

      Happy New Year to you as well, and again, thanks for reading.

    2. Hi again :-). I thought the European version, made by Palitoy, was made by Mego, any way they are awesome :-)

    3. Ah, yes. If you're talking about the European versions, then you are correct. Those were made by Palitoy.

      The post we have coming up is the US released Mattel versions, which are different from the Palitoy ones.
