Vintage 1974 Mego Star Trek Capt. James T. Kirk (Item No. 51200/1)


  • Details
    Capt. Kirk commander of the Starship Enterprise, as portrayed by William Shatner. The head sculpt on this figure is widely regarded as one of the finest examples in Mego’s history, offering an almost dead-on depiction of the good captain’s unique mixture of compassion and smug confidence. The figure came outfitted in a yellow tunic and black cuffed trousers. The tunic was detailed with a black neckband, three gold foil rank stripes on each arm, and a silver foil insignia. (This insignia is particularly problematic for loose collectors, as it consists of a stiff adhesive gray backing and a whisper-thin sheet of silver foil. This backing is almost always found on the tunic, as it is well-glued onto the fabric. However, the foil is delicate and typically curls, tears, and/or falls off after even five minutes of play time, just as our has done.) A black utility belt, blue phaser and blue communicator served to complete the ensemble, which our Kirk is missing. The Capt. Kirk figure went through three distinct face incarnations. The first was a Type 1 head (lighter flesh) with light-pink detailing on the lips (left). The next was a Type 1 head (lighter flesh) without lip paint (center). The third and final head was a Type 2 head (darker flesh) without lip detailing. The first is certainly the rarest, while the third is, by a sizeable margin, the most common. This MEGO Captain Kirk is Type 1 without lip paint. While not the rarest, is still a harder to find head for Kirk. His face and head are in wonderful condition with only a tiny spot of paint loss to Capt. Kirk's hair. His clothes are in good shape, he has been well played with for sure, but overall he looks amazing. What a superb addition to your Star Trek collection!
