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.
Please check out the MegoMeet Facebook page for more information.
You can also visit the MegoMuseum for info as well.
This week we talk about the Mego One Million BC line and the series of awesome “Prehistoric Animals” that were created for the line. These (mostly dinosaurs) creatures are actually some of the hardest to find items produced by Mego and well, they’re a lot of fun.
For more information, please visit the Mego Museum One Million BC Gallery:

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.
We kick it off with a fun one, we open up a boxed Mego Super Softies Batman figure from 1974 and find out what he has to say! Spoilers: It seems to be all related to crime in Gotham city.
