We’re finally getting the Riddler in a bowler hat

EC RIDDLER (9) (1)

The MegoMuseum broke the news yesterday about this Emerald City Comic’s exclusive Riddler figure from the 1966 Batman series. Unlike past exclusive Figures Toy Company items,  ECC went all out and had a new head sculpted and it’s pretty damned righteous.

Such good deeds deserve reward:

Time to dig some eight inch graves, Mego Museum reporting:

“The latest Diamond Select Star Trek set is now available for Pre-Order. The Cheron is a reverse of the previous release and the Red Shirt figure comes in two different hari colours and ranks, the variations are evenly spread in a case. Click here to order for this May!

 

2016 will see Star Trek’s 50th anniversary and Diamond is bringing back the Retro line in a big way. This new set is just one of many we’re set to see in the next twelve months. Follow us on Twitter: @megomuseum for more updates.”

So just how many Super Friends are we getting from Figures Toy Company?

The Mego Board Room in 1977

This little gem appeared in the Mego Museum Newsletter last week (Subscribe Here!)

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.

And the fifth Marvel Mego Set is……

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.

MegoMuseum has an exclusive first look at the figures which do look really nice, more here.
