Need to catch this up. Several new acquisitions to add here. Hope you enjoy!

These guys are cousins of Bo and Luke Duke from Dukes of Hazzard. Here what is says on the Mego Museum about them:

When John Schneider and Tom Wopat abruptly left the show over a merchandising dispute (which Mego was obviously a part of), the network scrambled by having their cousins Coy and Vance replace them. Coy was played by then well-known actor Byron Cherry (insert sarcastic tone), while Christopher Mayer who was just as famous, played Vance. Mego also responded by designing new head-sculpts for both characters. New heads were sculpted, but the outfits and packaging remained the same. Since Coy and Vance came on Bo and Luke cards, no unique item numbers were assigned for the figures......<snip> The Coy and Vance figures are unique in the fact that they were two temporary additions to the 8" Dukes of Hazzard line. With no Coy and Vance item numbers, no packages reflecting their name, and no appearance in the retail catalogs, it almost seems like they never really existed. Coy and Vance are the scarcest and most limited from a production quantity standpoint.

And here is a familiar face in the Dukes of Hazzard line:

Here are some very special additions to my collection. They are one-of-a-kind Mego Wizard of Oz customs i was fortunate enough to purchase off a very talented customizer on the Mego Museum. These guys fit right in along side my original Wizard of Oz Mego figures:

Unfortunately i wasn't able to purchase the bicycle, it was promised to someone else years ago. But i do have the recipe for making one of my own which i eventually plan to do.

Bill, your collection is a blast to see. Interesting info on the Duke boys. And those Oz customs are nuts! Wow. MEGO 8" Frankenberry and friends? Kitsch-tastic!

Whoa, the Aquaman shark rocks! One of those toys I somehow didn't know existed until recently. I'm sure it's a rare find. Congrats!

It's generally considered the most expensive Aquaman collectible in the past 40 years.

Only some of the 60's stuff MIGHT be worth more (like Captain Action stuff).

Nice! That monster was marketed as a Star Wars Cantina monster in a Montgomery Ward catalog years ago.
