Welcome to Custom Mego Creations, a new series of “ how to” videos aimed at Mego Collectors and customizers. Since our inception over 20 years ago, the MegoMuseum has always embraced custom figures. We the practice change and evolve but the most important thing was that we weren’t responsible, it was the community itself, people sharing their techniques, their findings, their recipes, their talents, their hacks and most importantly, their time. CustoMego Creations is web series that serves a platform for our community of talented Mego makers and will hopefully inspire that creative energy in others. what we plan to have is guest hosts each week sharing their skills and ideas. We’re starting with a small group but plan to expand after that and hopefully, get this to be a weekly series. This Week’s episode we make a Jackson Bostwick Shazam! from the filmation television series,.

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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
