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!
This has been a hell of a week, first Mego returns to retailers after 35 years and now the insiders at the MegoMuseum announce this?
I worry I’m in the matrix or in a coma somewhere. If they announce Logan’s Run next, I’ll know this can’t be real…..
We begin “Mego Meet Recap Week” with the big one first.
The big announcement was that Mego Corporation is returning and to mass retail this year. While all the details and figures will be revealed at the Mego Museum in two weeks, here is what we do know.
- Mego is back and they’re in the action figure business baby!
- There will be 20 different characters introduced in the first wave.
- It is a variety of licenses, some will be familiar to Mego fans, others will be new properties to the World’s Greatest Toy Company.
- There will be 8″ figures but also other scales, due to license parameters.
- Figures were produced under the watchful eye of Paul “Dr. Mego” Clarke.
- All details including licenses, characters, and the retailer will be revealed mid-June.
Exciting times to be a Mego fan!
Please stay tuned to the Mego Museum and please like the official Mego Corporation Facebook page.

In the “Epic News” department, former PAC Toys President Joe Ruzzi has shared his Mego Commercial reels with the Mego Museum. This allows us to see spots for the first time as they were intended and not from 17th generation VHS copy.
The first two releases are out there and wow, the sound and colors are so crisp and nice.
The Museum promises to add a new commercial every week in their Mego Museum newsletter.
Custom of the Week – 12/7/2015 – Aunt May
This week the spotlight falls on lilbrosj66’s Aunt May. It’s almost impossible to find a use for the Grandma Walton head, let alone such a perfect fit for a beloved character.
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…
- Black Vulcan
- Apache Chief
- El Dorado
- Wonder Woman
- Green Lantern
- Wendy, Marvin and Wonder Dog
- Black Manta
- Lex Luthor
- Scare Crow
- Captain Cold
I need a part time job…..Anybody hiring?
Mego Museum reporting in their exclusive #MMFTCNEWS that the 2.0 version of “Mego 8″ Superheroes: World’s Greatest Toys” by Benjamin Holcomb.
If you’re a Mego head and you don’t own a copy of this book, go and buy it now.
Figures Toy Company is offering some pretty sweet deals on the book, including discounts on purchases on their toy items, so if you’ve been holding off on a purchase, this is a good time.
If you’re into Mego and DC Comics, then Christmas just came early as Figures Toy Company just released shots of their 8 inch versions of Harley Quinn, Scarecrow and Mary Marvel figures on their facebook page.
Personally I’m pretty pumped for these, especially more female heroes.
Lots of discussion going on at the Figures Toy Company message board that’s part of the Mego Museum.
You can preorder these at the Figures Toy Company website.
There has been some grumbling about the price of these going up this go-round but EE has solved that problem by at least offering free shipping on the next four. This is a crazy wave of oddball character that I never thought I’d see, so I must admit to being weirdly excited.
It’s been a busy month for Mego heads, here is a run down of everything going on currently.
Figures Toy Company:
- Alfred is part of an Entertainment Earth Exclusive five pack.
- Online Retailer Toycade also has an exclusive 1966 Batman coming our way.
New Teen Titans:
Bif Bang Pow!
- Venture Brothers Sgt Hatred and H.E.L.Per in stock now
- Shore Leave/Alchemist and Pete White/Jefferson Twilight sets to return in stock in May
Diamond Select Toys/EMCE
Sorry, that was weak, even for me. Entertainment Earth unveiled an exclusive 18″ Removable Cowl Robin from Figures Toy Company yesterday.
I really like the idea of these, I’m not sure how many I can afford to buy (both cash and space are a rare commodity) but as Benjamin Holcomb recently mentioned, the grand size of these does make you feel like a kid again.
