Mego snags Buck Rogers toy license

Twiki figureStill stinging from the business decision to not bid on the Star Wars toy rights in 1977, toy maker Mego International grabs the license for Universal Studios and NBC’s upcoming science fiction series Buck Rogers In The 25th Century while the show is still in the earliest stages of pre-production. This lead time, unusual in the late ’70s toy business, will become more common in later years; Mego has action figures and vehicles ready to ship when the series premieres in late 1979.
