Lili Ledy was the premier toy company in Mexico and had the rights to G.I. Joe, Star Wars and Stretch Armstrong. Due to Mexican law at the time Lili Ledy would gain the rights to the toys and produce them in Mexico

Every Mego figure Ledy produced was a variation on a US one. Often wrongly percieved as knock-offs, Ledy figures are an interesting and exciting chapter in the Mego saga

If you have any figures(loose or boxed) not mentioned here, or variations of them please contact me!

Ledy Variations

Mega Collector Luis Felipe has provided the boxed Ledy shots, way to go Luis! You're the envy of mego-heads everywhere! He has sent me these files which explain the differences in Ledy over the tears of production, as you can see type 1's have coarser outfits

This Awesome new section is thanks to my friend Luis Feilpe one of Mexico's foremost Mego Collectors. This is probably the first time this stuff has ever been seen.

Most of these Knock Offs use a crude copy of the Mego star Trek body, I own a variation of the Kirk and they are extremely flimsy. These things came out of Mexico long after Mego's demise and despite the fact that they are made with little to no care, they are highly collectible. Other subjects include Mazinger, the Keeper form Star Trek, Mighty Thor and The Gorn!

If you have any figures(loose or boxed) not mentioned here, or variations of them, please contact me!

Cipsa (who also had the rights to Mattels Big Jim AKA Kid Acero and Matt Mason Lines,) carried Megos Planet of the Apes line and made several variations. The most major and strange change was to market the apes without pants, the source of humour for years, the mentality must have been that the legs were already coloured and you save some points but not including them.

The body style is almost identical to a mego type 2 Ape body, however the heads reflect a somewhat cruder design. Cipsa redid some of mego's packaging artwork (they did similiar revisions to Jack Kirby's Big Jim PACK art) or simply created their own, they packaged the figures in large boxes they had also used for the Gabriel Lone Ranger line.

In 1996, Toy Dealer Mike King had a large find of boxed items from this line, prior to this discovery it was relatively unknown. Supply of the MIB items has pretty much dried up and didn't seem to meet demand.

There are five figures in the line and a great number of playsets (including the Horse, Catapult and Wagon which was exclusive to Mexico and Canada). The Allan Virdon figure was remodelled into "Bill" most likely the hero of the Deptie Freling "Return to the Planet of the Apes Cartoon".

A third player in Mexico was Ensueno who picked up two Mego lines in the early eighties as Mego had world wide rights to the Superheroes.

The twelve inch line made by Ensueno had a flying action (I don't know how it works) and included Spiderman, Superman, Batman and Mighty Mouse (!).

The Elastic Heroes were a rehash of Megos elastic Heroes and included Plastic Man, Superman, Batman and Spiderman.
