"Shelf... the final frontier..."

"Ship's Doctor's Log, Stardate... Whatever.

"The Enterprise has sent me down to a strange planet. Sensors indicated two life signs nearly identical to my own. The planet is considered peaceful, so I went with no away team."

Ah. I had to welcome my first ever classic Mego into my collection. My beloved Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy. He will live long and prosper.

Cool find. Also nice spotlight of your Dr. McCoy collection.

Danke! As a kid I was always fascinated with Megos, but never had any. I don't know if they were too doll-like for the Pops or something. Though I did have a Big Jim - arguably the most homo-erotic action figure of all time. :-)

Of course, then Star Wars came along, and the days of the 6" or better action figure were over. [sigh]

I might go for a Kirk or Uhura... Maybe a Scotty or Klingon? Spocks are easily found, but they always seem to be "well loved" in the price range I try to stay in.
