Figures Toy Company says the magic words: Shazam retro figures

A standout of Mego's World's Greatest Super Heroes line, the Shazam 8-inch figure arguably more closely resembled the live-action television version of the character than it did his comic-book counterpart. And his release wasn't followed by that of Mary Marvel or Captain Marvel Jr., but rather Isis, who shared a programming block with him each Saturday morning.

But now Figures Toy Company is about to make up for all of that with retro-style figures based on the Marvel Family and their foes.

The company, who specialties include licensed reproductions of those Mego toys, has announced a Shazam! series, beginning with Captain Marvel, Mary Marvel, Captain Marvel Jr. and Sivana. The announcement and teaser image specify "Series 1," suggesting more will follow (fingers crossed for Mister Tawky Tawny, Black Adam and the alter egos).

The announcement follows that of a New Teen Titans line, and reproductions of the Mego Mobile Bat Lab and the Batcave. Shazam! Series 1 is set to debut later this year.
