Mego has been delighting collectors with their super retro and nostalgic 50th Anniversary World’s Greatest Super Heroes Figures and I can’t be happier! Mego has been cranking them out new and their latest wave just went up for Preorder which includes baddies this time; Joker, Penguin, Riddler and Reverse Flash! These new Mego figures are spectacular as I own all of the first wave that included Superman, Batman, Robin, Aquaman, Green Lantern, Shazam, and Flash. I am still waiting on Green Arrow as he will be released soon! These 8″ figures have amazing high quality soft goods costumes just like the vintage Megos. And who could forget those hilarious but nostalgic plastic “oven mitts” for gloves! The artwork and packaging for these figures are exactly like the vintage original, from the artwork, to the Super Heroes logo, down to the exact color of the boxes, Mego hit it outta the park with these!

Wave 2 Preorder
Mego’s latest wave of 50th Anniversary World’s Greatest Super Heroes Figures includes Joker, Penguin, Riddler and Reverse Flash!
The Clown of Crime, the Joker himself is the latest in Wave 2 to be joining the 50th Anniversary World’s Greatest Super Heroes Figures! Looking absolutely retro and straight out of the 1970’s, the Joker comes with his signature purple stripped suit, with his brown shoes. N=Meo absolutely nailed it when it comes to the head sculpt and outfit! The artwork on the box features the classic sketch of Joker which appeared on the original vintage package!
The cagey bird himself, The Penguin is the next up in Wave 2! Now Batman will have both his arch enemies to battle it out with! Penguin comes in his original Mego outfit just like the vintage figure! Complete with his top hat, black tuxedo jacket and purple pants, he is looking dapper in his retro outfit, monocle and all!
The Prince of puzzlers Riddler is the next in the wave! This is one I am super excited for! Dressed in his signature green jump suit, filled with question marks, the Riddler is a beautiful homage to his vintage Mego Figure, complete with his purple mask and purple belt!
Reverse Flash is a new character to the Mego line, never before made, but in the absolutely classic Mego Style, this Reverse Flash is a yellow version of the Wave 1 Red Flash Figure! He looks like he is ready to run in that bright yellow outift and red winged boots!
Mego’s 50th Anniversary World’s Greatest Super Heroes Wave 1 consisted of all Heros, which includes Superman, Batman, Robin, Aquaman, Green Lantern, Shazam, Flash, and Green Arrow. If this first wave is any indication of the quality and character selection that Mego is going to bring us, I can’t wait for the future waves!
The Man of Steel himself started out the first wave! Superman is a stunning example of the amazing work that Mego is doing on this Anniversary Line! He looks spot on with his vintage counterpart dressed in his classic blue and red Superman suit. He is sporting the larger ‘S” logo on his chest and the looks spectacular! I have this figure in hand, and he is the highest of quality! Articulation and joints are nice and tight using the latest Mego body type!
Next up on Wave 1 is the Caped Crusader Batman! This is the super rare removeable cowl version, where when you remove Batman’s cowl, it reveals Bruce Wayne underneath! Batman is dressed in his classic gray and blue costume, with a large bat symbol on his chest, yellow utility belt, blue soft goods cape, blue boots topped off with his signature blue ‘oven mitt’ gloves!
The second half of the Dymanic Duo, Robin is the very rare removeable mask version revealing Dick Grayson below! Robin is dressed in his classic outfit complete with his utility belt, green pointy shoes and green ‘oven mitt’ gloves!
The king of the seven seas and my personal favorite Aquaman! This version of Aquaman is a perfect homage to his vintage counterpart! The head sculpt is spot on and incredibly cute! He is wearing his orange shirt with yellow belt with his Aquaman “A” sown on it! He has green tights and finished off with his signature green ‘oven mitt’ gloves as well! The artwork on Aquaman’s box is a perfect replica of the original packaging and looks amazing!
Green Lantern is an all new never before made Mego figure, but done in that classic Mego style! Mego nailed it with the classic looking Hal Jordon head sculpt, green and black outfit. This version of Green Lantern has short sleeves for the top of his gloves and white hands, rather than the “oven mitts”, which I think looks great! He comes complete with his Green Lantern accessory as well. The artwork on the box includes the classic Green Lantern logo and a color sketch of Hal Jordon himself!
The Flash is yet another all new never before made Mego figure, but done in that classic Mego style! Mego totally captured the classic look of the Flash with his fantastic head sculpt, red jump suit and yellow winged boots! This version of The Flash has red colored gloved hands, rather than the “oven mitts”, which I think looks great on him as well! The artwork on the box includes the classic Flash logo and a color sketch of the fastest man alive himself!
Green Arrow is a highly anticipated figure and is running a little behind the rest of Wave 1 as this one figure I have yet to get in hand. Green Arrow looks amazing in his classic soft goods outfit, complete with his green archer’s hat, backpack full of quivers and his brown bow! Green Arrow was another figure that had short sleeves and green hands as opposed to the “oven mitts” and they look great on him as well. He is wearing a green belt and green boots.
Shazam rounds out Wave 1 in his signature red and yellow outfit, complete with lightning bolt on his chest! He has a yellow cape and bright yellow boots! The artwork on his package features the classic Shazam look as seen in the comic books!
