The Mego Museum has launched a series of documentary shorts on the many lines produced by Mego Toy Corp. First subject is the Flash Gordon line from 1978. Look for more in the near future.
Mego Museum Member Sprytel has been building an entire universe of GOT characters for a while now and recently revealed his eight wave of characters.

Aw Yeah Mego Meet is officially two months away and the hotel is nearly sold out.
Don’t miss what is going to be the Mego event of the year, a rocking dealers room, exclusive figures and comic notables like Art Baltazar and Mark Waid in attendance.
Mego Museum showcased the upcoming Kresge style Superheroes and while they’re great and all, I can’t ignore the fact that Doctor Thaddeus Bodog Sivana is getting a freaking Mego style figure this year!
The folks behing the MegoMuseum have created an official facebook group for their custom wing which has been dubbed CustoMego for as far as I can remember.
I rarely say this about Mego figures but Helloooooooo!
It’s slobbering time, by that I mean, I’m drooling at how well done this is.
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.
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!
The Kubby Awards, the annual MegoMuseum poll that shines the light on the brightest and the best in ReMego is coming to a close today.
Seriously, this may be the toughest year yet with all the players and licenses in the pool. So cast your vote and be heard, from what I understand from early results, people like Batman. Who’da thunk it?
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.
