Lincoln International Monsters Gallery

The Lincoln Monsters can often be dismissed as "Knockoffs" which they are but they are also a charming and fun monster toy line to collect. These eight inch Mego inspired figures debuted in the mid 1970's by Lincoln International, these figures saw distribution in the United Kingdon, Europe and much of North America.
They're also my favourite mego-esque figures to collect, mainly because my dad sold them back in the day! Best of all, he carried the line because I asked him to. I have nothing but happy memories of my Lincoln Monsters getting in huge battles with my Mego Superheroes.
A recreation of one of those fights can be seen below:

Mr Rock looks like Northstar, and that pink communicator cinches it!

"Best of all, he carried the line because I asked him too."

that's so cool. (except for the to/too thing, but what the heck)

i've never seen Mr. Rock before, that's hilarious. "Captain, these aliens are...FABULOUS!"

Hahaha Mr. Rock - that is pure genius right there - whoever came up with that figure deserves a medal!

Lincoln Board Meeting:

"Okay fellas, we're almost ready to move ahead with that Star Trek knockoff we discussed. What're our choices again?

Mr. Jackov - too explicit
Lt. Screwyou - too confrontational
Captain Jerk - too villainous

Mr. Rock - BRILLIANT! Smoke 'em if you got 'em boys, we're ready for production!"
