Mego Meet 2018 will be held June 1st – 2nd in Columbus, Ohio at the Courtyard by Marriott Columbus West. This will be our fourteenth year, and I am pleased to announce that we FINALLY have found a facility that works for us and can hold all of us in one large room. The hotel is at 2350 Westbelt Dr, Columbus, OH 43228, USA
Registration is open now – Meet admission is still only $25 and still includes family; tables remain an additional $40.
Time to dig some eight inch graves, Mego Museum reporting:
“The latest Diamond Select Star Trek set is now available for Pre-Order. The Cheron is a reverse of the previous release and the Red Shirt figure comes in two different hari colours and ranks, the variations are evenly spread in a case. Click here to order for this May!
2016 will see Star Trek’s 50th anniversary and Diamond is bringing back the Retro line in a big way. This new set is just one of many we’re set to see in the next twelve months. Follow us on Twitter: @megomuseum for more updates.”
So it was confirmed at the Mego Museum forums that the next four Marvel sets are (in no order)
Spider-man (including 2099 but we don’t know who else)
OK, I’m surprised about Iron Man as well but the character selection does seem somewhat well thought out based on popularity and media attention. Still hoping for something a little more classic in wave 3 but people have been wanting a 70s Mego style DD and Punisher for forever and a day.
Hopefully something retro cool like the Electric Company or Japanese Spider-Man ends up in the new set. I am going to assume that the black suit is a given.
According to the latest Mego Museum newsletter that spoke to Diamond Select Toy’s Zach Oat the ReMego Trek figures are getting rebooted with Kirk and Klingon followed by Spock and Khan wave (but not a Chaka Khan wave sadly)
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?
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.
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.
Not even the combined forces of nostalgic 80s kids and the population of Germany could save this one. DST offered an 8″ Michael Knight for pre-order using their newly acquired tooling from ZICA toys because, well, why not? It’s a high profile property and a nice looking figure.
Sadly, a Michael Knight doll without a car or promise of a car is kind of well, not as sexy as it sounded. I’m conjecturing here but i’m guessing that the pre-orders were humbling and the doll was pulled off the table. (feel free to correct me, I am pulling this theory out of you-know-where)
Hey, nothing ventured, nothing gained. Keep taking your shots DST, I salute you!
PS Make more 8″ Universal Monsters…
Still, I’m happy for the fans and to see yet another property get the Mego format and it looks EMCE did a nice job as usual, I wish it all the success in the world if only to see Diamond/EMCE take more risks with the 8″ format. *cough* Black Dynamite *cough*
