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.

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

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!

FTC shows us Super Friends Superman

Out of the blue this image popped up on FTC’s facebook page. I think the biggest surprise for me is the expression, to me the Super Friends are all about smiles. This isn’t a deal breaker for me. These look like they were taken with an iphone in China, so i look forward to the official photography on this series.
