There is an auction on eBay right now, for an unidentified “Mego Mailer Box,” which ends on April 2, 2008.
While the seller is unfamiliar with its origins, you might like to know that Mego produced this box for Canadian (note the “C” before the Mego Item Number 51500/6) distributors to sell Wizard of Oz Wicked Witch figures.
It’s not rare, but it is cool, especially if you collect Mego Wizard of Oz items.

Mego Museum contributor Mego73 recently posted a link to this amazing blog on Hunter Goatley’s POTA site, which features scans of the circa-1974 “Go Ape!” promotional press book.
Among the promotional pages are references to Mego’s own promotional efforts supporting their line of Planet of the Apes action figures.
I love how the generic graphics (clearly pre-dating the digital age) implore readers to “Visit your local [MEGO] for details…”
