Mattel Battlestar Galactica Viper Launcher Commercial

For some reason I've never uploaded this commercial to YouTube, yet I transferred it ages ago. A cleverly repurposing of their "Flying Aces" toys, the Viper Launch station was a really cool way to play Battlestar Galactica.

Go Exploring with BIG RED!

Big Red is one of those wonderful toylines that was created specifically for a catalog, in this case the Speigel catalog. A mix of Big Jim and GI Joe, I've had many folks tell me about having Big Red as a kid but honestly, I've never seen one as a collector.

He kind of looks like Dr. Benton Quest.

Mego 12 Inch Superheroes

As I prepare for this week's Mego Meet Toy Show this weekend, I thought it would be cool to showcase this awesome catalog from the United Kingdom. Pedigree Toys began distributed the Mego Toy Lines in the late 1970s and did a knock out job with the 12" Superheroes, more pages after the jump!
