Lasermego brings back the Fantasticar for Mego Meet

Four years ago, Laser Mego made a small amount of these working (and let’s face it, amazing) Fantasticars for the annual Mego Meet Convention. They sold out in an hour and were never heard from again.

Until now, where we get news that they’ve added this new version to the 2015 Aw Yeah Mego Meet Customs Auction (which we’ll spotlight all this week).

Does this mean more will be made available at the show? We have no idea if there will be, one thing is certain though, if you want one, you should be at Aw Yeah Mego Meet 2015 next Saturday.

Skokie Here We Come!

Skokie, IL – December 12, 2014 – Mego Museum in conjunction with Aw Yeah Comics is pleased to announce that Mego Meet 2015 will be held June 5th and 6th at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Chicago – North Shore Conference Center. Registration information for vendors and attendees will be posted on the Mego Meet 2015 page at megomuseum.com in the coming weeks.

For the past ten years, the annual Mego Meet made its home in Wheeling, WV. It was clear after Mego Meet 10 that maximum density had been surpassed in Wheeling and that a change of venue was in order. The move to Skokie, IL. will allow for easy access for those travelling by plane, as well as provide a myriad of options for family entertainment. The facilities at DoubleTree offer award-winning guest rooms and event space for presenters, vendors, and attendees.

Perhaps the most exciting byproduct of the new location is that it makes possible a partnership with Aw Yeah Comics, located in beautiful downtown Skokie. Eisner Award-winning artist and co-owner Art Baltazar will be in attendance with the entire Aw Yeah gang. Art is a long-time Mego Meet attendee and is thrilled to host the Meet in it’s new home.
As in years past, Mego Meet 2015 will feature dealer rooms packed full of vintage toys; presentations by collectors, customizers, and toy companies dealing in the classic 8″ “Mego scale;” a customs contest; and an auction to benefit the Mego Museum. The addition of Aw Yeah Comics will add another dimension that will diversify and improve what is already a great annual event.

Megolike: Shindana Slade

slade

Slade may be one of my favourite Mego Like toys of all time. A low budget repurposing of Shaft from toy maker Shindana (a swahili word meaning “To Compete”) focused on making toys for minority youth in America, who were being largely underserved at the time by the majors. Slade is a Big Jim scaled man of action who doesn’t carry a gun and explains that Slade is a secret agent thanks to his growing up in the neighbourhood, serving in the army and going to college.

Oh and he’s a badass looking figure to boot. More on Slade and Shindana over at PlaidStallions.
