The picture kind of sucks but these figures show so infrequently it’s news in these here parts. Slade is part of series of “Live Auctions” on Ebay (!) that include lots of Tomland Star Raiders and Lincoln Monsters. I’ve got no dog in this race but I’m pulling up my lawn chair to watch the fireworks.
You can see all the auctions here. Warning; there is a 20% premium on these for some reason, if you do bid, take that into consideration.
Yup, it got made.
MegoMuseum posted this today on their twitter and well, it’s the same sort of Styrene masterpiece that the Enterprise Bridge was. It was released by Grand Toys in Canada mainly because they paid up front for their stuff, here is a boxed version (also from the MegoMuseum)
There are actually two Love Boat playsets and they look so alike that they cause confusion, this I believe is made by multiple toys and features smaller scale figures of the crew and passengers. From what I gather it’s hella rare too.
So the big question is, where the f*** are my Fantasy Island toys?
Insanely rare catalog shot of the Famous Monsters of Legend, Star Raiders and Creatures from Other Worlds figures from the 1979 Tomland Toys Catalog. Anybody have the 1980 or 81, I’d love to see them.

The folks at DD impress me both with their talents and their regularity, this month they’ve released David from the Lost Boys as part of their Mego Style horror collection. Limited to 60, these certainly won’t be available for long. Order it at the Distinctive Dummies Website.
Odeon toys just put this carded image of Captain Canuck on their front page, stating that Captain Canuck will soon be available for sale on their web store. Seems the figure is going to launch with an event of some kind.

The 2014 Mego Museum Kubby Awards for excellence in ReMego are up for viewing right now. It shouldn’t come as a big surprise that Figures Toy Co and NECA pretty much stole the show this year but I do think some nice stuff got ignored.
I guess when you have a property as beloved as 1966 Batman and then you actually do a nice job of the figures, you really have lightning in a bottle. Congrats to the winners!
I always look forward to seeing what obscure DC or Marvel character Austin has mined from the “Who’s Who” and made into Mego gold. Here he’s made an obscure Aquaman villain look pretty darn cool. See more at the Mego Museum.
The Kubby Awards, the annual MegoMuseum poll that shines the light on the brightest and the best in ReMego is coming to a close today.
Seriously, this may be the toughest year yet with all the players and licenses in the pool. So cast your vote and be heard, from what I understand from early results, people like Batman. Who’da thunk it?
File these under Neat-o, original factory head pulls from the Ensueno flying 12″ Batman and Spider-Man, I am totally smitten with oddball stuff like this but the finances disagree with me.
If you’re interested however, here they are on Ebay.
I’m back and well, EE is having another sale. It’s not the big ReMego blow out that the last one was but there are some good deals on Battlestar Galactica, Venture Brothers and a nice price break on those Big Bang Theory figures.
You can see the whole thing here.
I always love non Superhero customs and when they’re quirky like this, even better. Kudos for the later seasons permy do.
Entertainment Earth has the new Wolverine Set from Diamond Select up for pre-order. Even though I love the fact that we’re getting a new member of the WGSH in a classic style, I’m a little Wolverined out. I’ll still buy one, I’m a hoarder…
The long awaited release of the Sea Ghost action figure from Nemo Publishing is finally almost here. Expected to land in January, Nemo is now offering a pre-order on the figure at their web store.

This collectible maker action figure is based on the classic Mego style and has been handcrafted with the help of Paul “Doc Mego” Clarke.

Of course these show up now, during my “most brokest” moment this year (well, toy money broke, the lights are still on) and while it pains me to feature them, I ain’t gonna jump in this pool.
Released in 1991, these talking mego like figures are pretty damned tough to find and obviously appeal to monster geeks (of which I am one) This seller has the Werewolf and the Vampire MOC, which are the two I want out of the set. Best of luck to everyone on these.
Sources tell us that the Odeon Toys Limited Edition Captain Canuck Figure will be available for Pre-Order right after Christmas this year. The figure will retail for $24.99 and ship the first week of January.
The good Captain will be available at the PlaidStallions store, Ebay and at Big B Comic Stores.
