Founded in 1989 Megatoys is a maker and distributor of toys that started operations in Los Angeles, California. They continue to operate a local toy store there today. With their corporate offices now located in nearby Commerce. And their own manufacturing factory located in Hong Kong.

In the 1990s, they began distributing a series of (2) pack castings for Maisto called "Mega Masters".

In the mid 1990s, they issued a series using Summer castings called "Mega Movers".

During that same time frame - they also began marketing a series called "Mega Speed" using a different diecast makers product of diecast toys.

Also during the 1990s, they marketed a series of truck castings for Sunnyside Limited at K-Mart locations.
