This week we’re not going to talk about making a custom but rather look at some fond memories and celebrate some creators. Fans make the coolest stuff and let me introduce you to some of my favourites like the Supermobile, Jet Jaguar and Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, you’re gonna love it!
MegoMuseum.com presents Mego Meet 2020 which will be held June 18th-20th, 2020 in Columbus, Ohio at the Courtyard by Marriott Columbus West. This will be our third year in Columbus. The hotel is located just off the I-270 outer belt and is minutes away from dining, malls, etc. http://www.megomuseum.com/megomeetmain/megomeetmain.shtml
This week we talk about the contributions of BASA, a company in Peru that not only made their own versions of the Mego World’s Greatest Superheroes but also made this 8 inch Steve Austin figure, a completely unique item to their country.

Retro figure fans are going to love Figures Toy Company’s future plans revealed here in this week’s #MMFTCNEWS. Collectors know that FTC is always looking to expand and improve upon their already impressive range of products, and they’ve now these separate companies; Figures Toy Company, Castaway and White Elephant Toys are working in conjunction with one another! What does this mean for figures like those from FTC’s DC Comics and Hanna Barbera licensed lines? Read on to find out!
The combination of these three companies has allowed FTC to acquire the molds for new body types for use in retro figure production. A solid construction Type S body will be sold on www.classsictvtoys.com and eventually used on new figures going forward and may also be used in re-releases of some of your favorite figures from the past! FTC has also gained access to the super articulated Humanoid female figure body, which will mark another change in the design of FTC characters in the future years. Each of these body molds have been beloved and used by customizers and collectors for years, but the agreement between Figures Toy Company/Castaway/White Elephant will allow them to be used in mass production moving forward! The agreement will also see collaborative efforts among the companies, which will deliver all new collectibles to the marketplace!
If you think improved figure molds is enough big news for a while, then think again! On top of all their recent reveals, Figures Toy Company is also expecting a December delivery with items available in time for the holidays! Be sure to bookmark Figures Toy Company for easy access to check out what collectibles are already in stock, and what’s being added soon. Current offerings include characters from the Super Friends cartoon series, the fan-favorite Batman Classic TV Series figures, The Three Stooges, and even select Christmas themed figures from the Stooges and KISS lines! Be on the lookout for new figures and new body types coming to FTC, and watch for a new #MMFTCNEWS update next (and every) Friday!
While the Mego World’s Greatest Superheroes is one of the successful toylines of all time, it like any other toyline, did have a fair share of items that didn’t make it into production. Vintage Mego takes a look at a few Superhero items that just didn’t make the cut.
Which one of these do you wish got made? Let us know in the comments!
This week we take a look at a personal “Holy grail” of mine that i recently managed to acquire. The Power Action Superman was produced in the United Kingdom for a toy company called “Denys Fisher” but the story behind its creation is an interesting one.
Today we talk about the upcoming Mego Meet 2019 Customs benefit auction, all proceeds go to keeping our site up and running. We’ve had some generous donations this year and I also share my own contributions.
