The Mego Museum Customego Hall of Fame

 

Megomuseum.com is proud to announce the creation of the Mego Museum Customego Hall of Fame.

Since its inception in 1997 Megomuseum.com has featured thousands of custom Megos created by hundreds of Mego customizers.  Armed with leftover parts, acrylic paints, Sculpey, and the mission to “fill in the gaps” in the lines Mego made legendary, customizers have played a vital role in the hobby reaching its enormous popularity and are the inspiration for the Re-Mego Renaissance we are experiencing today!

The Mego Museum seeks to recognize and honor these legendary customizers AND customs of the hobby.  So, without further adieu we present the inaugural Customego Hall of Fame class of 2018:

Still working on resurrecting Megolike.com (although the facebook page is still up and running) in the meantime, here’s another line of modern figures that rocked out world.
