The World of ReMego: An Opinion Piece

Oh my God.

It’s an abundance, soon Norm Peterson will be captured by my Apes dolls. Bela Lugosi will join my mad monsters and Tootie from the facts of life will….I have no idea what I’d do with that doll.

It’s just too big to deal with, go to the Megomuseum.com for all the info but Mego is back and set up at booth 830 at SDCC today, NECA has Golden Girls and well, this is on top of all the wonderful stuff Figures Toy Company puts out.

If anybody complains, it’s like moaning at a buffet that there is nothing to eat. Sure, I don’t like everything presented but a) nobody has a gun to my head forcing me to buy it and b) the world doesn’t revolve around me and my tastes, if it did, using “LOL” in written communication would result in a caning.

Enjoy this, take it in, it’s amazing. It’s just the beginning, I hear wave two is on the water. Exciting times. Let’s blow it up and take some retail space away from Funko Pops.

Unite Mego Breathen! Spread the word!

Megolike: Medicom RAH figures

riderman

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!

Megolike: Cast-A-Way Toys Phantom and Captain Action

gallery_header_mego

Yeah so Megolike.com has been missing for a while and while they try and salvage it (the domain remains in good hands) I thought I’d post some photos from there to kind of tide things over. Here are some more recent figures by Cast-A-Way toys, the boys made nice stuff, had a strong following and got screwed over royally by an unscrupulous third party who essentially stole their molds.
If you have some of the stuff I don’t email me and I’ll add it to this page.

Achmed was the Phantom’s nemesis (he doesn’t exactly have a Batman’s rogue gallery does he?)

Mego Museum gets the scoop on the New Teen Titans

Mego Museum has exclusive first look at the cyborg prototype from Figures Toy Company

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.

Three new DC Figures Revealed at Figures Toy Company

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.
