SHEET 3

  • Sulu, originally portrayed by George Takei, in the original Star Trek series is featured wearing his classic federation uniform. Sulu is known for bringing peace to the intergalactic universe as helmsman of the USS Enterprise. His new action figure comes equipped with a to-scale Phaser, as Sulu is always ready for more Star Trek action.
  • Kelly Garrett, one of the original members of Charlie’s Angels, is featured with a fashionable 70s-era show-stopping outfit. The figure is modeled after Jaclyn Smith, who originated the role. With a mane of feathered hair and rocking bell bottoms, she’s still Charlie’s right-hand woman.
  • Peg Bundy is America’s favorite mom. She will be featured wearing her iconic leopard unitard—the perfect complement to her ever-feisty attitude. Peg’s figurine mimics her character and also includes her classic must-have—a box of bonbons.
  • Action Jackson, is back in action! Jackson is a crime fighter, with an attitude as hard and flinty as his punches. Styled sporting his original blue jumpsuit.
  • Arthur “The Fonz” Fonzarelli (aka Fonzie) may wear a tough-guy black leather jacket, but underneath he was often the resident softie on Happy Days. This new action figure also comes with Fonzie’s trademark comb to keep his hair looking good. Forever cool, The Fonz is a must-have for your Mego collection!
  • Norm Peterson knows how to relax, and is featured wearing his classic after-work drinks outfit; an office-ready suit. He was Sam’s most devoted customer on Cheers and the new figure would not be complete without Norm’s ever-present accessory—a mug of beer, naturally.
  • SHEET 4

 

 

  • Piper Halliwell, one of the most powerful witches of all time has now come become immortalized as a Mego figure. Piper initially possesses the power to freeze her surrounding environment. As the series progresses, she also receives the power to cause evil beings or objects to spontaneously explode using her hands. Piper has her spell book as her featured accessory and is dressed in a red top, jeans and high heels.
  • Dracula, portrayed by Bela Lugosi, is back to stalk us all! Transylvania’s most famous resident is known for feeding on the blood of humans to maintain his power and vampire-style good looks. In his tuxedo and cape, Drac’s always in style, especially when he’s looking to lure new prey.
  • Alice, the long-serving housekeeper from The Brady Bunch, wouldn’t look quite the same without her iconic uniform. More than a mere housekeeper, Alice was also a true friend to the Brady family and its brood of kids, and her figurine would not be complete without her classic tight curls, piece of cake and big, friendly smile.
  • Tootsie, the youngest character from Facts of Life, Tootie Ramsey was best known for her braces and penchant for rollerskates and gossiping. This iconic character sports her iconic school uniform and comes equipped with a notebook, to take down the good, the bad- you know, the facts of life.
  • Chekov, a classic character from the original Star Trek, is featured wearing his distinct federation uniform. Not only navigator of The USS Enterprise, Chekov also comes equipped with a Phaser and tricorder to help keep the iconic spaceship on course.
  • Jimi Hendrix, one of the most influential rock guitarists in history, is getting the Mego Icon treatment! His figure, in fact, sports the outfit made famous on the album cover of Woodstock, complete with the white, fringed boho jacket, red bandana and his classic afro. It’s time to get your collection rocking!
  • Classic Wonder Woman is wearing her iconic gold tiara and original power suit—and she is here to seriously kick some criminal butt!
  • General Zod: Superman’s greatest foe is back and wearing the costume made famous by Mego the first time around. He also comes with a side of Kryptonite—an important accessory for defeating Superman and, you know, taking over Earth.

  • Harley Quinn, the Joker’s ever-devoted partner in crime and sidekick, is wearing her original outfit with her mallet poised to take over the town.
  • I Dream of Jeannie, Jeannie and Tony will be featured together in this box set that includes Jeannie’s bottle. A genie who is rescued by her master Tony Nelson, Jeannie will be wearing her classic wish-granting pink Arabian outfit, while Tony wears his classic military uniform.
  • Mirror Universe Star Trek, The bridge crew from one of the most significant sci-fi series of all time aim to keep the peace in the universe, and this box set will include Captain Kirk and his first officer, Spock.

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!

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.

The Museum promises to add a new commercial every week in their Mego Museum newsletter.

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.
