Mego Museum launched another video short this week and it’s a look at the Comic Action Heroes Mangler. One of the weirdest toys to come out of Mego. Basically, it’s point is to murder the Green Goblin, that is dark.
Mego Museum reporting in their exclusive #MMFTCNEWS that the 2.0 version of “Mego 8″ Superheroes: World’s Greatest Toys” by Benjamin Holcomb.
If you’re a Mego head and you don’t own a copy of this book, go and buy it now.
Figures Toy Company is offering some pretty sweet deals on the book, including discounts on purchases on their toy items, so if you’ve been holding off on a purchase, this is a good time.
This week the Mego Custom Spotlight falls on Grimjohn’s dead-on version of Wildfire. Looking like he just burned his way out of the comic, the former Mr. Burroughs sports a mixture of off-the-shelf and custom parts.
For more on Wildfire check out this thread at the Mego Museum.
This week the spotlight falls on KosmiCKennY and the wonderful group of customs he saved for one big posting. X-Men, Adam Warlock, Black Cat, Bi-Beast, Klaw, Loki, Man-Wolf , Sandman – what a diverse group of offerings on both sides of the aisle!
Due to popular demand, Benjamin is offering limited edition prints of this striking WGSH poster he designed, it’ll measure 18″ by 24″. If you want one, better get on it now as these will be a one time print on demand situation.
To get on the list requires a (reasonable IMO) $5 deposit that goes towards your purchase.
“This rare picture from 1977 shows where all the magic happened, the Mego boardroom with notables such as President Martin Abrams, VP Neal Kublan, Product Design Manager Vinnie Baiera, Art director Marty Harrison and founder D. David Abrams in attendance.
I’d love to know what they were discussing that day.“
Deadpool and from what I see on the side of his box at SDCC, the Punisher and a second Spider-Man set are due next.
I’m pretty oblivious of this character but I do know that he is really, really popular. Sure I want a Green Goblin set super bad but I’m going to trust Diamond that they probably looked at the sales of their other Deadpool merch and decided he was a solid bet.
I know some Mego fans aren’t thrilled with this choice but honestly, I’ve never been upset about not spending money, so i don’t get that.
