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.

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.

Been late to the game but the Mego Museum has the scoop on the New Teen Titans Cyborg and Nightwing. While the praise is pretty unanimous for Cyborg, fans are mixed on the open mouth look of Nightwing. Put me in the “Like” camp on that one but to each their own.

I know a lot of collectors grumbled about the price initially, so this is a nice break if you’re still into “collecting them all!”
The MegoMuseum broke the news yesterday about this Emerald City Comic’s exclusive Riddler figure from the 1966 Batman series. Unlike past exclusive Figures Toy Company items, ECC went all out and had a new head sculpted and it’s pretty damned righteous.
Such good deeds deserve reward:

I need a part time job…..Anybody hiring?
I was tempted by the earlier offerings but resisted, even though I love the Kresge designs but this wave with 3 all new characters is another matter…..
Mego Museum reporting in their exclusive #MMFTCNEWS that the 2.0 version of “Mego 8″ Superheroes: World’s Greatest Toys” by Benjamin Holcomb.
If you’re a Mego head and you don’t own a copy of this book, go and buy it now.
Figures Toy Company is offering some pretty sweet deals on the book, including discounts on purchases on their toy items, so if you’ve been holding off on a purchase, this is a good time.
If you’re into Mego and DC Comics, then Christmas just came early as Figures Toy Company just released shots of their 8 inch versions of Harley Quinn, Scarecrow and Mary Marvel figures on their facebook page.
Personally I’m pretty pumped for these, especially more female heroes.
Lots of discussion going on at the Figures Toy Company message board that’s part of the Mego Museum.
You can preorder these at the Figures Toy Company website.
There has been some grumbling about the price of these going up this go-round but EE has solved that problem by at least offering free shipping on the next four. This is a crazy wave of oddball character that I never thought I’d see, so I must admit to being weirdly excited.
The Mego Museum announced this morning that Figures Toy Company’s Aquaman VS the Great White Shark play set is now available for pre-order. The price? $79.99.

I can only imagine the tooling on this bad boy.
Out of the blue this image popped up on FTC’s facebook page. I think the biggest surprise for me is the expression, to me the Super Friends are all about smiles. This isn’t a deal breaker for me. These look like they were taken with an iphone in China, so i look forward to the official photography on this series.
It’s been a busy month for Mego heads, here is a run down of everything going on currently.
