Toy Beauty - Mego Magnetic Batman and Robin

12" Magnetic Batman and Robin, Mego Corporation, America 1977

Thanks to my bestest pal Mar-God for helping me acquire these wonderful and kinda rare pieces, especially complete and in this kinda shape, pretty much mint. The Dynamic Duo can be seen here scaling my kitchen fridge searching for some ne'er do wells or perhaps a late night snack. Keen eyes will note that Robin's head is fairly close to the Gabriel Lone Ranger, while the grimacing Batman is an interesting, and kinda intimidating counterpart to the head found on the more serene 12" version. Great pieces indeed and a very proud addition to my collection.

  1. Hopefully the dynamic duo won't run into a kitchen's greatest nemesis -- the dreaded exploding can of DRA-COLA!!! LOOK OUT, BATMAN!!! THERE'S ONE ON TOP OF THE FRIDGE!!!!
