Buster Crabbe as Flash Gordon Action Figure unveiled at Mego Meet 2011
In case you have not already heard, The Mego Museum broke the news last weekend that Cast-A-Way Toys is producing an 8" Buster Crabbe as Flash Gordon action figure. Based on the 1936 film serial of the famous scifi newspaper strip character created by Alex Raymond. This was the first photo shown online, posted on the Mego Museum.
Cast-A-Way Toys unveiled the figure during their presentation at Mego Meet 2011, the annual gathering of Mego Collectors and their families at the Kruger Street Toy Museum in Wheeling, West Virginia.
Thanks for all the kind words on the Mego Museum Forum in response to the announcement and picture of the 8" Buster Crabbe as Flash Gordon prototype figure.
Here is the uncolored black and white packaging artwork by Chris Franklin.
