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!”
Canada’s Mego Gathering is this Sunday in Burlington Ontario Canada. I don’t need to tell you how normal you’ll feel meeting with your herd, very cathartic.
Plus free trading cards and it is a vintage toy show too.
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:

The MegoMuseum newsletter revealed this week that NECA has teased (very) early shots of the Bill and Ted retro figures.
I’m fond of the original film but I don’t need these. I will say though, it’s a bloody good idea and these will likely sell.
Now Freaked action figures is a different story……
Time to dig some eight inch graves, Mego Museum reporting:
“The latest Diamond Select Star Trek set is now available for Pre-Order. The Cheron is a reverse of the previous release and the Red Shirt figure comes in two different hari colours and ranks, the variations are evenly spread in a case. Click here to order for this May!
2016 will see Star Trek’s 50th anniversary and Diamond is bringing back the Retro line in a big way. This new set is just one of many we’re set to see in the next twelve months. Follow us on Twitter: @megomuseum for more updates.”
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.

I need a part time job…..Anybody hiring?
I was tempted by the earlier offerings but resisted, even though I love the Kresge designs but this wave with 3 all new characters is another matter…..
Mego Museum launched another video short this week and it’s a look at the Comic Action Heroes Mangler. One of the weirdest toys to come out of Mego. Basically, it’s point is to murder the Green Goblin, that is dark.
From issue #92 “Dude where’s my Thor” written by McCallum, Aclin and Oat. More after the Jump….
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.
Apologies for the double linking, the MegoMuseum URL is having some issue with Facebook and we’re not really sure why. If you’re an expert on FB and like us, drop us a line.
Every Mego collector has probably wondered at one point what the Mego factory looked like and how everything was made. Thanks to this rare document (the 1978 Mego International Shareholders Report to be exact, which we’ll soon share) we have a glimpse into the Hong Kong wonderland that was Lion Rock.
This week the Mego Custom Spotlight falls on Grimjohn’s dead-on version of Wildfire. Looking like he just burned his way out of the comic, the former Mr. Burroughs sports a mixture of off-the-shelf and custom parts.
For more on Wildfire check out this thread at the Mego Museum.
This week the spotlight falls on KosmiCKennY and the wonderful group of customs he saved for one big posting. X-Men, Adam Warlock, Black Cat, Bi-Beast, Klaw, Loki, Man-Wolf , Sandman – what a diverse group of offerings on both sides of the aisle!
