When it comes to describing action-figure giant Mego’s competitors, Lou Melograna of Megolike.com minces no words. “Azrak Hamway International (AHI) was Mego's biggest nemesis. They ripped off their products over and over." Melograna appears to enjoy chronicling this seedy side of toy world, and the resulting off-brands that tried to profit from Mego’s success by pushing cheaply made toys into the marketplace. He also showcases the Mexican, Italian, and other international manufacturers who had the non-U.S. rights to popular toy franchises like Batman and Planet of the Apes.
