I can honestly say that I’ve never seen this R.C. Mego toy in my entire life until just the other day…now I wish very badly that I had known of its existence so I could have begged my grandparents for this to be under the tree back in 1979. Except that sadly all that begging wouldn’t have worked anyway, thanks to The Mego Museum I’ve learned that this commercial posted below is an unaired Toyfair presentation. After spending $100,000 for two working V.I.N.C.E.N.T. prototypes they deemed it too expensive for the average family. Of the two prototypes, one was destroyed in the last days of the Mego Corporation, and the second was luckily saved by by a former employee as you can see looming behind its 8″ brother. Rumor is that if V.I.N.C.E.N.T. would have been successful the company had plans to release a Twiki from Buck Rogers.
