This epic display of Mego Customs by long time creator Austin Hough was on display at this past weekend’s Mego Meet convention in Skokie IL. It’s worth noting for it’s breadth but also how damned tidy it is. I’ve never displayed anything this nicely ever.
Custom of the Week – 12/7/2015 – Aunt May
This week the spotlight falls on lilbrosj66’s Aunt May. It’s almost impossible to find a use for the Grandma Walton head, let alone such a perfect fit for a beloved character.
This week the Mego Custom Spotlight falls on Grimjohn’s dead-on version of Wildfire. Looking like he just burned his way out of the comic, the former Mr. Burroughs sports a mixture of off-the-shelf and custom parts.
For more on Wildfire check out this thread at the Mego Museum.
This week the spotlight falls on KosmiCKennY and the wonderful group of customs he saved for one big posting. X-Men, Adam Warlock, Black Cat, Bi-Beast, Klaw, Loki, Man-Wolf , Sandman – what a diverse group of offerings on both sides of the aisle!
When i woke up this morning I had no inclination that it would be an expensive day but that was before Distinctive Dummies announced a small run of figures based on Kolchak: The Night Stalker. I’ve been waiting years for Carl.
If Carl wasn’t enough, there is also The Night Strangler from the TV Movie of the same name.
Aaaaaannnd a Two Pack of Karl and Janos that I must own Dammit!
As always get them now because once they’re gone, they ain’t coming back.
Four years ago, Laser Mego made a small amount of these working (and let’s face it, amazing) Fantasticars for the annual Mego Meet Convention. They sold out in an hour and were never heard from again.
Until now, where we get news that they’ve added this new version to the 2015 Aw Yeah Mego Meet Customs Auction (which we’ll spotlight all this week).
Does this mean more will be made available at the show? We have no idea if there will be, one thing is certain though, if you want one, you should be at Aw Yeah Mego Meet 2015 next Saturday.
Mego Museum Member Sprytel has been building an entire universe of GOT characters for a while now and recently revealed his eight wave of characters.
I simply can’t lather enough praise on these, check out his photo bucket account for more.
The folks behing the MegoMuseum have created an official facebook group for their custom wing which has been dubbed CustoMego for as far as I can remember.
I rarely say this about Mego figures but Helloooooooo!
It’s slobbering time, by that I mean, I’m drooling at how well done this is.
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.
I always love non Superhero customs and when they’re quirky like this, even better. Kudos for the later seasons permy do.
When it comes to a mix of character choice and execution, Austin always comes up something special. His take on the classic FF villain The Wizard is no exception, see more of it at the Mego Museum.
Talk about happy surprises, Distinctive Dummies drops this bomb on me one week before Christmas. Being a lover of all things Naschy, I ordered one before I put on pants that morning.
Distinctive Dummies are proud to announce its first two releases for 2015.
First up we have Paul Naschy, the legendary Spanish actor and who has played a Werewolf more times than anyone. I am happy give you Waldemar Daninsky from Werewolf vs Vampire woman, AKA Werewolf Shadow. This figure is also the debut sculpt for DD by Ron Gearing. Ron is a great talent and believe me, I have seen what else he has in store and all I can say is awesome! Also on this we have a new artist designing the cards, Doc Boucher, whose individual style really sets up the figure inside. Full details at
I love stuff like this, the Justice Society pose for a fun portrait, see more at the Mego Museum
