Help Kojak Fight Crime

Help Kojak Fight Crime

Excel Toys Kojak


Were you one of the lucky kids who, at Christmas, got the deluxe Kojak playset from, oh, let’s just assume, your grandparents?
That was way better than a Mego Batman, right? I mean, now you can take the Penguin downtown and process him. Get him a lawyer and see if he’ll talk about that umbrella store robbery. 

Kojak merchandise has been my “go to” for weird jokes since I was 7 when I first saw the action figure. Now, I think they’re cool in a “What kid wanted this?” way.

I did a video on Kojak merchandise on my channel, and yes, I own this figure; of course, I do.


 ISSUE 9 of Toy-Ventures comes out this month, pre-order now and get a free Key Ring of the Mangler.

Do you miss toy collector magazines?

That’s why we created Toy-Ventures magazine, an old-school print publication dedicated to vintage toys from the 1960s to the 1990s. Each issue is packed with never before seen images and information written by some of the top collectors. We’ve got 8 issues and climbing; please check our page here or visit our store.


The Mego Museum News has rebranded into the Super Collector Newsletter! Encompassing more from sites like PlaidStallions and more. Check it out even if you don’t collect Mego figures.
