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!
Due to popular demand, Benjamin is offering limited edition prints of this striking WGSH poster he designed, it’ll measure 18″ by 24″. If you want one, better get on it now as these will be a one time print on demand situation.
To get on the list requires a (reasonable IMO) $5 deposit that goes towards your purchase.
“This rare picture from 1977 shows where all the magic happened, the Mego boardroom with notables such as President Martin Abrams, VP Neal Kublan, Product Design Manager Vinnie Baiera, Art director Marty Harrison and founder D. David Abrams in attendance.
I’d love to know what they were discussing that day.“
When i woke up this morning I had no inclination that it would be an expensive day but that was before Distinctive Dummies announced a small run of figures based on Kolchak: The Night Stalker. I’ve been waiting years for Carl.
If Carl wasn’t enough, there is also The Night Strangler from the TV Movie of the same name.
Aaaaaannnd a Two Pack of Karl and Janos that I must own Dammit!
As always get them now because once they’re gone, they ain’t coming back.
From issue #30- I guess it’s too late for the exclusive “Seven of Nine” figure but we can still laugh at this, more after the jump:
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.
From issue four, 1997. This upsets my stomach to think this magazine is nearly 20 years old now. I’ve wasted my life!
Anyway, more after the jump. This may be the first “Fecel Matter/Hulk” gag in the series, something would never get old it seems.
So it was confirmed at the Mego Museum forums that the next four Marvel sets are (in no order)
Spider-man (including 2099 but we don’t know who else)
OK, I’m surprised about Iron Man as well but the character selection does seem somewhat well thought out based on popularity and media attention. Still hoping for something a little more classic in wave 3 but people have been wanting a 70s Mego style DD and Punisher for forever and a day.
Hopefully something retro cool like the Electric Company or Japanese Spider-Man ends up in the new set. I am going to assume that the black suit is a given.
