Batman and Robin went through several changes over the years. We had the original Batman with the removable cowl. That was great because we would actually change him to/from Bruce Wayne by using Action Jackson clothes. Maybe that is why our Batman fell apart over the years. We got another one later that had the cowl painted on. I think Robin had a removable mask as well in the beginning.
All of our Batman figures fell apart except Penguin. This is what our Batmans, Riddler and Joker look like now:
I posted a picture of our Penguin in the Last post about Mego Superheroes.
We also had a lot of fun with the Batcave playset, the Batmobile and the Batcopter. The only one left to show a photo of is the Batcopter:
I found some good pictures of the Bat mobile on Ebay from user Ringer 1808. He gave me permission to show them to you:
I love the fact that Robin is wearing a Superman costume and that Batman has lost his chest decal. That is the way most Mego Dolls ended up, isn't it?
As for the Bat Cave, I remember it to be lots of fun. When I look at it on internet sites like Mego Museum, it sure doesn't look as good as I remember. We also never had the BatCycle. Probably because we thought of that as belonging to Batgirl.
I finally figured out how to embed a youtube video, so I want to close this post with a Mego Batman commercial that shows all of what I have been writing about here.
Now, does that bring back memories or what?
I hope you've enjoyed remembering Mego Batman with me. If you have, I would really appreciate a quick comment. I'm getting kind of lonely here on this Toy Blog. I know that people are reading it because I have many counter hits and manage to stay it the top 40 of the Top 100 Toy Sites, but I don't get many comments. So please be kind and say hello. Thanks!
If you have read anything in this post that interests you or helped you bring back memories, I would love to hear from you. Please comment or send me an email.
I have many other toys that I can write about and show pictures of. Please comment or email if you have a favorite toy form the 60's, 70's, or 80's that you would like me to post about. If your favorite toy is before the 60's or after the 80's, I will still give it a shot. I have many of my Dad's old toys, and I know about the more recent ones too.
This blog is for you. It's for everyone. Together, lets talk about the Toys 2 Remember! Thanks!!
