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!
