In the 1970's, one toy company ruled the super hero action figure market; the legendary Mego Toy Company. The Mego Spider-Man figure was an 8" figure which boasted Mego's signature articulation and classic sewn-cloth costume. This particular figure was an astounding fan favorite and became a veritable staple in any kid's collection in the mid to late '70s.

Mego sold thousands upon thousands of these figures and such was its popularity that to this day a collector can easily find several good-condition Mego Spider-Man figures at any given toy show, for a relatively low price considering that it's well over 30 years old.
