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.

  • 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!

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!

Figures Toy Company puts Monkee on my back

Mego Museum broke the news today that three sets of 8 inch and one set of 12 inch action figures of the Monkees are now up for grabs.

I was planning on passing but GAAAAHHHH they look fantastic and well, this was my favourite after school show in 1976 (prime mego buying years) so the little kid inside of me wants these and he won’t shut up about it.

The sales this season at EE have made me a little tired but that doesn’t change the fact that they’re giving some great deals on Bif Bang Pow figures from Twilight Zone, Dexter, Penny Dreadful and the Six Million Dollar man right now. A totally different assortment from the previous two sales.

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:

Mego Museum got the exclusive scoop from Figures Toy Company on their Zan, Jayna and Gleek three pack last Friday, but to me the bigger scoop is the back of the card revealing the entire line up and wow, this is my dream in 1978…

I need a part time job…..Anybody hiring?

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.

 

NECA Home Alone

11698638_10153478406554310_3920905411774746525_n11737817_10153478406334310_8263857517538113140_n11709244_10153478058459310_3992595999782337582_n

NECA promised 15 new ReMego figures and while many of us old timey guys were hoping for more Apes and Monsters, the first thing out of the gate is Home Alone.

This is not for me personally  but what excites me about this announcement is the next twelve figures could be absolutely anything.  Come on Fletch!
