Palitoy Mego Zorro All Complete with Original Box & Bag 1977
Less than 10 boxed examples known to exist in the World
A very rare opportunity to buy a all original complete Palitoy Zorro in original box and bag.
Not only is this considered one of the top five Holy Grails of Mego collecting but it is one of the finest figures that Mego ever produced with a great likeness to Zorro actor Guy Williams, this is the only action figure ever produced from the 1950's Walt Disney TV show popular in reruns in the 1970s and it is the strikingly beautiful solid box illustration that to me makes it one of the most desired of all packaged Megos.
Mego created this 8 inch figure exclusively in England for the Palitoy company for only one year, 1977. It's rarity, combined with it's quality and the popularity of the character make for an extremely expensive collectible.
The Zorro figure itself with clothes and accessories are in excellent condition and are all original. The Zorro head is near perfect and clean. The only blemish is that the original sword is missing its guard, if you wish to, this is the easiest piece to replace as it is exactly the same sword used by Mego super pirate Blackbeard. Loose complete Zorros are difficult to find on the market and command a high premium for their rarity. However the complete Zorro with original box is a different level of collecting altogether.
This Zorro box itself is in good shape. With very little litho tear and no tape on the top flap (a common flaw), however there is evidence of tape residue and hopefully you can see this in the pictures provided. There is also the slightest suggestion of crushing to the left side of the box and small 6 mm corner tear in the top left. Front and back are excellent with some edge ware. There is no evidence of holes etc.
Reputably there are less than 10 boxed examples known to exist in the world today. In my 20 plus years of Mego collecting. I have only seen 6 boxed examples myself, most are in mid grade, 2 still have their original bags of which this is one and this in my opinion is one of the better examples. This would be the centerpiece of any Mego, Palitoy, Walt Disney or Zorro collection!
