No. No. That's Not True! That's Impossible!



Eric Stettmeier, my toy collecting buddy and author of Toyriffic, generally refers to my beloved Mego figures as "Dollies". I've always taken that reference with a grain of salt, as I've always known in my heart that they are action figures. I have looked at boxes like these hundreds of times, but it finally hit me like a ton of bricks that Eric was right. Mego's packages do refer to them as "Doll Figures." This would normally make me feel like Luke Skywalker in The Empire Strikes Back, but this obviously proves that Mego never proof read their packaging and must have been a misprint.

  4. I notice Reis is glaringly absent from the convo. He's probably at home buried in his dollies, rocking back and forth telling them they are still 'action figures' in his eyes.

    And then offering them some tea.
