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. Slightly taller (at ten inches but then Mego made a few of those too) the Medicom RAH figures were gorgeous and flipping pricey back in the day. Now? I’m picking them up for $20 a piece. Above is Riderman from the Kamen Rider television series. More after the jump!

ReMastered Mego Commericals Coming Soon

 

In the “Epic News” department, former PAC Toys President Joe Ruzzi has shared his Mego Commercial reels with the Mego Museum. This allows us to see spots for the first time as they were intended and not from 17th generation VHS copy.

The first two releases are out there and wow, the sound and colors are so crisp and nice.

The Museum promises to add a new commercial every week in their Mego Museum newsletter.

Mego Museum broke the news today that three sets of 8 inch and one set of 12 inch action figures of the Monkees are now up for grabs.

I was planning on passing but GAAAAHHHH they look fantastic and well, this was my favourite after school show in 1976 (prime mego buying years) so the little kid inside of me wants these and he won’t shut up about it.

Emerald City offers Robin Exclusive

Mego Museum gets the exclusive on this new ECC exclusive. Everybody and their brother saw this yellow variant coming but making it a limited edition seems like a great idea as it’s super niche.

This Kresge version will be limited to 700 units and available in January. Which makes me wonder, what else is arriving in January.

Megolike: Cast-A-Way Toys Phantom and Captain Action

Yeah so Megolike.com has been missing for a while and while they try and salvage it (the domain remains in good hands) I thought I’d post some photos from there to kind of tide things over. Here are some more recent figures by Cast-A-Way toys, the boys made nice stuff, had a strong following and got screwed over royally by an unscrupulous third party who essentially stole their molds.
If you have some of the stuff I don’t email me and I’ll add it to this page.

Achmed was the Phantom’s nemesis (he doesn’t exactly have a Batman’s rogue gallery does he?)
