Previews has announced two exclusive MEGO action figures! Deathstroke and Batman (Terry McGinnis) are getting the retro treatment. Relive your 1970s or early 1980s childhood with these 8″ tall limited edition figures.
This MEGO Deathstroke is modeled after his appearance in the Teen Titans cartoon (the good one). Batman is, well, Batman from Batman Beyond. Simple designs lend themselves well to the MEGO toys. The more complex the outfits, the more silly they start to look.
Each figure is limited to just 5,000 pieces. Pre-orders are expected to ship in May 2022. Each MEGO figure will come on a fully illustrated blister card inspired by the classic MEGO line from the ’70s.
Both figures should start showing up in comic book shops around the end of April 2022. They can be pre-ordered at Previews or over at the Big Bad Toy Store.

Having taken over the mantle, Batman of the future Terry McGinnis, joins the Mego Heroes line as an 8″ figure! Officially licensed and fully poseable, this Batman Beyond figure features 26 points of articulation for a variety of posing options! Outfitted in a real cloth batsuit with utility belt and gliders based on his appearance in the fan-favorite animated series Batman Beyond.
Since Topps took over the MEGO brand, we’ve seen an increased number of franchises join the toy line. Hasbro announced MEGO Ghostbusters, along with G.I. Joe’s Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow. Even the Killer Klowns From Outer Space got on board the retro train.
