Vintage Batman Die Cast Metal and Plastic Figure 1979-1980 by Mego
Here's a look at Mego's limited collector's edition die cast metal Batman. The figures from this line are considered the first truly limited edition action figures aimed specifically at the collectibles market. Each of these figures had superb styling and detailing. To me they were way better than Mego's pocket Super Heroes figures and if I dare say, Kenner's Star Wars figures as well.
At 5 1/2" tall these guys were fully jointed and extremely detailed. Batman here even has a cloth cape. I guess they kind of remind me of Kenner's Super Powers line in a way. Nevertheless, these action figures were very cool and I wish Mego would have produced more characters and the line had run longer than a year.
