Mego Spider-Man and Giant Acroyear at Korvettes

I was so excited to stumble upon this ad for Korvettes from 1978 featuring a Mego Superhero and Micronaut Mall Appearance. Mego famously did promotional tours with the Marvel Superheroes, Planet of the Apes characters, Action Jackson and even the cast of Star Trek. However, they also created this amazing costume of the Giant Acroyear to promote the Micronauts toy line.

Thanks to Doug Knoth for these photos, we get a glimpse of what this looked like. BTW, this is a Corvette” In the Sunrise Mall, Massapequa, NY. It’s not mentioned in this ad, but one would assume it was likely in the same period. I love all those minty boxed BioTrons!

Spider-Man is spinning webs for kids, and somehow, my parent’s patio furniture is there.



I wonder whatever happened to the Mego Giant Acroyear costume?


If you have photos like this and want to share, I’d love to add them to Mall of Justice, a new book I’m working on showcasing the stories and the photos from those events.


Send your stories and photos to, and I’ll do my best to include them in the publication.

Mall of Justice is super (pun intended) personal for me, as an encounter with the Marvel heroes in a Woolco greatly impacted my young brain.

I’ve been carefully curating many of these photos over the years, but I could use more. Hoping to launch the book this fall.

If you have photos before Cosplay showed them how it’s done, please get in touch with me.

Other ways to help: share this page or share the FB page on Social Media and let friends know. I could really use a leg up.
