MGH Catalog - MooKungHwa, Korea

Joe K.

Date unknown, but finally a company name to go with the logo:

You might expect the letters within the logo diamond to be M K H, but they are not.

I do not have their boxes, but the toys themselves simply have the word KOREA embossed on the backs; no logo.

The MGH B/O SPACE SHIP appears to be a dead ringer for Masudaya's Space Ship X-7:

As seen in this recently ended listing:

The Alphadrome Database contains these two other MGH robots:

Joe, being married to a Korean, I find that in many cases, the Korean words we note as beginning with a "K", they actually pronounce as "G"; the city of Kwang Ju, is pronounced Gwang Ju...so they probably pronounced it as Moo Gung Hwa, which could explain the MGH in the logo.
