Kenner 1977 TTP

Kenner Megabug

Described by Kenner in 1979 as "Combat vehicles of the future....half insect, half machine" Megabug Gladiators were perhaps just too ahead of their time.

Thats pretty much the only reason I can think of to justify why this cool toy line of insect tanks wasn't a hit with kids. Had it been spawned in the 1980s, Megabugs would hafve likely gotten an animated series to support the concept and been a bigger hit.

As it stands, it's one of those toylines that deserves fmore fanfare, for being one of the most creative concepts of the decade.


I had no idea Big Foot could drive, I also love that his car has his face on it..

I'm not sure what makes this a playset, still I love the Kneer packaging design.
