My pursuit of 8" Mego DC Heroes continues with these new Flash and Green Lantern that I happened upon in a regional chain, V-Stock at a fair retail price, $16.99. I picked up a Mego DC Villain while getting these, but we'll get to that in a later post. Mego didn't produce a Flash or Green Lantern among their World's Greatest Superheroes line in the '70s, so these have the additional "fulfilled wish" attraction.

Below, the new Mego 14" Batman with my blue/gray Classic Batman and Dark Knight Detective Batman, both from 2019. I don't like the new Batman more than these two previous versions. In fact, I like the way their suits fit better, and I don't mind the beefier build. I do like the batarang and extra hands, but it seems like the clothes size stayed the same when they built the newer, slightly smaller buck. Even the belt has a somewhat hard time knowing where to sit. You can wiggle things around to fit, but it's not as good as the previous Batman figures.
Below, the new 14" Mego Batman with his smaller counterpart, the 2021 8" Mego Batman. I had intended to avoid Mego's new 8" figures to save space for my 14" DC Heroes but made an exception for this Batman. I have since picked up other 8" Mego DC characters you will see in future posts...
And finally, Batman with my 14" Mego Joker. Like many of the other 14" Mego in my collection, I picked Joker up quite a while after he was released, ordering a jacket from Dr. Mego to supplement my vested, but not jacketed figure- the jacket originally came with the first Joker which had only a printed vest. Joker is on an older male buck that is beefier than the new Batman. Regardless, I'm really enjoying seeing all the new Mego since their 2018 resurrection and love their 14" DC figures. I've been tempted by their 14" Star Trek and Monsters but would be more interested in seeing new DC characters like Martian Manhunter, Green Arrow, or Jor-El. Recommended!
