The Mego Museum is back to making short toy documentary pieces narrated by Jason Lenzi (co-host of Pod Stallions) and written by the Museum staff. You can see all their output on this special play list.
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!
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.
From Issue 25, September 1999 (still credited to the ToyFare Staff) we have “Megoville Squares” when they could still riff on the DC characters a little. I guess this mail away Lady Death offer has probably expired?
The sales this season at EE have made me a little tired but that doesn’t change the fact that they’re giving some great deals on Bif Bang Pow figures from Twilight Zone, Dexter, Penny Dreadful and the Six Million Dollar man right now. A totally different assortment from the previous two sales.
From issue #5 (January 1998) “Scream” is written by Toyfare staff (no credits yet). I’m going to add one of these a week for the rest of the year, so be sure to book mark us. To see previous posts, click the “Twisted Mego Theatre” tag at the bottom of this post. More after the Jump….
