  • Mego released The Black Hole action figures, based on the Disney movie, in two series in 1979 and 1980
  • The common first series included Holland, Durant, Reinhart, Booth, McCrae, Maximillian, Pizer, and V.I.N.Cent
  • The second series consisted of Humanoid, Old B.O.B., S.T.A.R., and Sentry
  • Sentry is the only second-series figure released in the U.S. The others were released only in Canada and Italy, and are very scarce
  • All but three of the Black Hole figures have typical rubber-band construction
  • The six humans (Holland, Durant, Reinhart, Booth, McCrae, & Pizer) and the Humanoid all have 10 points of articulation: neck, shoulders, elbows, waist, hips, and knees
  • S.T.A.R. and Sentry have 14 points of articulation: neck, shoulders, elbows, forearms, wrists, waist, hips, and knees
  • The robots Maximillian, V.I.N.Cent, and Old B.O.B. are uniquely articulated, and are detailed on those figures' pages
  • The only released accessory is the Italian Laserscope Fighter - Cygnus and Palomino were planned but not released
Related toy lines:
  • 8-inch magnetic figures were made of V.I.N.Cent, S.T.A.R. and Maximillian
  • 12-inch figures were made of Holland, Durant, Reinhardt, Booth, McCrae and Pizer
  • In 2005, Medicom released "Kubrick" figures of Vincent and Old Bob that are very close to 3 3/4-inch scale; they are also nicely movie-accurate and not in the stylized lego-ish appearance of many Kubricks.
