These monsters are some of the hardest and coolest around to find. They sport some really nice vibrant colors, are “Fully Jointed 8 inch Monsters” and some even sport some neat hands… kinda in a “claws-spread” fashion. They came carded and boxed (the artwork is so monster-esque and 1960/70 style!), but the boxed versions were mainly European and very expensive (and rare). As a matter of fact, any unopened version of these guys will fetch a great price. The head sculpts are unique and the boxes are designed as backgrounds to match the monsters persona. They not only did the usual Dracula, Frankenstein, Mummy and Wolfman, but they also added characters such as the Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Phantom of the Opera. Add to this a unique and very rare catalog set involving a smaller doll marked “The Victim”, and the very elusive Mr. Spock knockoff known as Mr. Rock (complete with space gun and pink “tricorder”) and you have one of the toughest sets to complete! Be sure to check out the ad showing the Mego Heros fighting the Lincoln monsters from a Montgomery Ward catalog in 1977(?). A *very* special thanks to Ray Castile & The Gallery of Monster Toys (for introducing me to the lines years ago & providing pics and info!), Brain Heiler (for hooking me up with my first Lincoln Hunchback MOC when I did not think I would ever have the opportunity to own one!),Plaid Stallions/ Lincolnmonsters.com and The Mego Museum for the use of pics, Matt Jaycox for pics and some incredible repro boxes!, and Greg Mason for helping me find my victim!
