Released in 1974, Mr. Mxyzptlk was part of the fourth wave of World's Greatest Super-Heroes sold by Mego (alongside the other "Super-Foes," Joker, Riddler, and Penguin).

 WAVE FOUR 

Mr. Mxyzptlk had two different head sculpts. Released initially with the "smirking" head sculpt, Mego quickly switched to the "open mouth" head sculpt. In addition, Mr. Mxyzptlk's hat color can range from pink to lavender to magenta to even blue!

"Open Mouth" Mr. Mxyzptlk
In 1974, Mego switched to the "open mouth" head sculpt. The "Open Mouth" Mr. Mxyzptlk was released on both the Type 1 and Type 2 body. Type 1 figures were sold in a window box and on the Kresge-style blister card. Type 2 Mr. Mxyzptlk figures were sold in the window box and on standard blister cards.

MIB Mr. Mxyzptlk

All Mr. Mxyzptlk window boxes have the old Mego logo. The Super-Foes were not released in new logo boxes. Also, most Mr. Mxyzptlk boxes have the 4-digit inventory code (1359) displayed on the box. A small number of boxes were printed with the 5-digit code (51359) before Mego switched to blister cards. Produced for only a short period of time, 5-digit Super-Foe boxes are very difficult to find!
