I loved Megos. I remember I had Batman, Superman, Robin, Aquaman and Spiderman when I was really young, and also remember the change to the g2 body for the Planet of the Apes line.

There was a licensee (CIPSA, I think) that produced a mexican version, but even though the figures were the same, by the time the oil crisis hit the costumes were not as nice as in the american figures. As an example, the american Apes had spandex leggins, but the mexican ones had bare legs.


I hadn't think of it, but I remember I lost my Aquaman in a taxi one day, and that sense of loss is almost as vivid today as it was then.

I will award you a point for easing the pain of your lost Aquaman.
