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.

 

Breaking: MegoMuseum/Figures Toy Co Join Forces

 

This week’s Mego Museum Newsletter reveals that they have worked out a deal to be the exclusive home for updates and reveals from Figures Toy Company.

Which makes a lot of sense, considering the Museum is pretty much dedicated to this kind of thing and it won’t get lost in a sea of updates from general action figure sites.

Every Friday will see a new reveal via the Museum front page or the newsletter, 2015 sounds expensive. Goodbye Money!

The Kubby Awards are in

 

The 2014 Mego Museum Kubby Awards for excellence in ReMego are up for viewing right now.  It shouldn’t come as a big surprise that Figures Toy Co and NECA pretty much stole the show this year but I do think some nice stuff got ignored.

I guess when you have a property as beloved as 1966 Batman and then you actually do a nice job of the figures, you really have lightning in a bottle. Congrats to the winners!
