I have been collecting mostly loose Action Figures for 30+ years. I have about 4000 + last count. Included in my collection are...
Star Wars, G I Joe, Masters of the Universe, Micronaughts, Marvel figures (various brands: Mego, Toybiz, Hasbro), Transformers, Dr Who, Star Trek, Alien, Predator, Thunder Cats, Robocop, D.C Super Powers, DC Universe etc...

I am mostly into Marvel Universe figures at the moment!

I am happy to share some pics if anyone is interested?

That is a huge collection! I have a signed Silent Bob action figure by Kevin Smith and a couple Superman ones. My favorite being the Red Son Superman. (This is a "what if" story where Superman lands in Russian instead of small as baby from Krypton. One of my favorite comics.)

Very cool, post some pictures.

A while back, I missed my chance to buy a foot tall Captain Marvel (Marvel Comics) action figure. At the time I had only enough to buy a DVD that I wanted, today, I think I should have purchased that big figure....argh...

Do you have any of the old school Marvel figures from about 35 years ago, the ones where the arms and legs were held in by elastic?

Yes I have The Hulk (large) and a Spider-Man. They came with real clothes lol.

They were made by the Mego Toy Company.

Mego were THE Action Figure company of the 70s and early 80s.
They signed their own downfall though when they turned down the rights to make figures for Star Wars film, believing it wouldn't be profitable, which Kenner decided to take on. The rest was history. The giant toy company called Mego went out of buisness, but their action figures are classic and much sort after now days! Very collectible!!

I quiet a few of their smaller pocket heroes Marvel and DC.

I also have some of the Mego Micronauts.

Captain Marvel action figures

Thanks for trying help me Sarcasticool, and yes that homemade Captain Marvel was an excelent job, it really does look like it belongs to the original Mego collection. And it is a bit funny looking, heh heh. :D








The Captain Marvel action figure I remember, looked a lot like this one.​

I am looking at some images on google and I really love the look and feel of the pictures with the figures in boxes.
