1974 Mego Scotty Action Figure

This week's item is a special Scotty collectible, in memory of James Doohan's birthday:

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.

The '74 figures are being reproduced, so check
the back to make sure it's the

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.
