Mego TV commercial

I've waxed nostalgic before about the great Mego action figures from my youth.

Well, here's an appropriately wacky '70s TV commercial featuring most of their great super-hero figures.

Just wait until you hear how they describe The Falcon - who was a fairly established Marvel character when this was broadcast.

Also, note how Mego was trying to pretend Mister Fantastic (who "stretches" in the Fantastic Four comics) has the same (easier to depict in an action figure) powers as The Invisible Girl.

They also seem to have confused Green Arrow with Robin Hood.
