Terrific TV Toys: Isis figure by Mego, 1970s

It's another one of those banner moments -- the kind of moment when, as an adult, you can right a wrong of your childhood, aided by that wonderful modern invention called the Internet. As a kid, this author absolutely loved the Saturday-morning live-action TV series "The Secrets of Isis," the companion superhero series to the popular "Shazam!" that had been on the air for a  year at that point. At the time in the 1970s, Mego Corp. was rolling out scads of great superhero action figures and added an Isis figure to their line in 1976. Boy, did I soooooooo want that Isis figure. Queue the adulthood, where all things are possible on the Internet!!!

It's this week's Terrific TV Toys episode ...

Here's the Isis cosplayer mentioned in the episode, spotted on Free Comic Book Day a week or so ago in Michigan:

Seriously adorable, along with the Ms. Riddler!
