These are just a very small selection of the carded Trek Mego's I have.
Lets see who can tell what is original and what is custom:

Mego did however ship the first set of figures in mailer boxes through catalogs like Sears and they also were available in mailer boxes in the extremely rare Enterprise Action Gift Playset that included the first set of figures in mailer boxes inside the boxed playset.
Here are a few more images of some of the Mego pieces in my Trek collection:

I believe that the mailer boxes were provided by Mego and each box had stamped on one side with the figures item number, etc:

The first two boxes of Kirk and Spock are an old set I purchased from Anthony (The Toyroom) on Megomuseum.com forum:
Anthony's web is: http://www.geocities.com/thetoyroom/
The second set of boxes are produced by Mike (mego73) who can be found on the Megomuseum forum.
Here is Mikes web site:
Anthony makes great stuff and his newer stuff looks even better now than the two boxes I posted above that were made quite a few years ago. Anthony also makes some incredible looking repro cards as does Mike as well.
Mikes boxes look so much better in person than they do in the pictures.
Both of these guys use heavy high quality glossy card stock, bright clear images with a high quality cello window and a box insert.
Add the correct figure inside and they literally look like they came right off of a store shelf.
I consider these boxes one of the highlights of my collection. Plus the ones from Mike were a special gift from my wife which makes them even more special to me:
