Mego Starsky and Hutch action figures are toys based on the U.S television series ‘Starsky and Hutch'.

Background

Starsky and Hutch was a popular U.S television show featuring the adventures of two unconventional California police detectives played by Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul. The show ran for four seasons and 93 episodes from 1975 until 1979, and was highly popular around the world.

The late 1970s saw a number of Starsky and Hutch-themed toys and games released, including play-sets with plastic guns produced by Fleetwood and a board game.

The line featured five figures, four based on actual characters and a generic criminal figure called ‘Chopper’. The figures measured 8” tall, with fully-poseable joints and individual, unique outfits.

The sculpting on the heads meant they bore a close resemblance to the onscreen characters, and the line proved relatively popular with children. However, the toys were discontinued in 1979 when the fourth series ended and Paul Michael Glaser left the show.

List of figures and playsets

The line featured the following list of figures:

  • Starsky
  • Hutch
  • Huggy Bear
  • Captain Dobie
  • Chopper
  • Ford Torino car
