Megolike: Cast-A-Way Toys Phantom and Captain Action

gallery_header_mego

Yeah so Megolike.com has been missing for a while and while they try and salvage it (the domain remains in good hands) I thought I’d post some photos from there to kind of tide things over. Here are some more recent figures by Cast-A-Way toys, the boys made nice stuff, had a strong following and got screwed over royally by an unscrupulous third party who essentially stole their molds.
If you have some of the stuff I don’t email me and I’ll add it to this page.

Mego Museum gets the scoop on the New Teen Titans

Mego Museum has exclusive first look at the cyborg prototype from Figures Toy Company

Been late to the game but the Mego Museum has the scoop on the New Teen Titans Cyborg and Nightwing. While the praise is pretty unanimous for Cyborg, fans are mixed on the open mouth look of Nightwing. Put me in the “Like” camp on that one but to each their own.

EE Deal: 30% off 1966 Batman Set

Figures Toy Company Exclusive Batman set is on sale today

Entertainment Earth has a spanking promotion running today in the form of their 1966 Batman Exclusive set from the Figures Toy Company, it’s 30 percent off which makes it a decent price.

I know a lot of collectors grumbled about the price initially, so this is a nice break if you’re still into “collecting them all!”

We’re finally getting the Riddler in a bowler hat

EC RIDDLER (9) (1)

Such good deeds deserve reward:

The annual gathering of Canadian Mego collectors is this Sunday November 8th in Burlington, ON. Mego North is part of the bigger Canadian Toy Con, a popular vintage toy show in of itself.  A block of tables of Mego collectors is formed within the show, there is an exclusive custom figure of a Canadian icon (yet to be revealed) and then all are invited to an early after show dinner across the street.

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…
