The Mego Museum is back to making short toy documentary pieces narrated by Jason Lenzi (co-host of Pod Stallions) and written by the Museum staff. You can see all their output on this special play list.
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.
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…
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.
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.
I always look forward to seeing what obscure DC or Marvel character Austin has mined from the “Who’s Who” and made into Mego gold. Here he’s made an obscure Aquaman villain look pretty darn cool. See more at the Mego Museum.
Sources tell us that the Odeon Toys Limited Edition Captain Canuck Figure will be available for Pre-Order right after Christmas this year. The figure will retail for $24.99 and ship the first week of January.
