This is a 1974 Mego action figure, part of the first line of Star Trek action figures ever produced (and therefore, obviously, the first ever Scotty action figure). I'm personally glad they went with Scotty's hair style from the earlier seasons.
Scotty came with a phaser, communicator, and a belt to hold them. Scotty's patch on his shirt has lost its original silver foil, which is very common for loose Mego figures.
James Doohan lived March 3, 1920 to July 20, 2005.
- For a little more information on James Doohan, check out the Scotty page right here on Zach Trek, but for more information, read the Wikipedia article on him, which is well worth the read.
- For all the details of every variation of this action figure, check out megomuseum.com's page on it
- If you haven't seen it yet, watch Zach Trek Video #7, which is an excellent tribute to Scotty

the back to make sure it's the real...um...Scotty.
|The Mego figures featured pretty decent likenesses|
of the characters, especially compared to
some later lines of action figures.
Next Week on Zach Trek: On Tuesday, check in for a video featuring some "crew members" from another part of the British Isle. On Thursday, check in for an appearance by a member of the Enterprise crew not yet (specifically) featured on Zach Trek.
