Vintage Mego: CB McHaul

10-4 Good Buddy! Vintage Mego discusses the CB McHaul toy line from 1977, a series of action figures not based on Superheroes or Science Fiction but on Burt Reynolds movies and your dad’s hobby. It even taught you a secret language known as trucker talk! We talk about the 70s CB radio craze, the line’s origins and how it’s one of the rarest Mego action figure lines to collect! This video is free of obvious, “low hanging fruit” jokes about self-pollution.

and how it’s one of the hardest action figure lines to collect!

Vintage Mego: Star Trek Mission to Gamma VI

Vintage Mego takes a look at the classic Mego Star Trek playset “Mission to Gamma VI” an alien world environment loosely based on a classic epsiode of the television series.

We also talk about why the Mego Star Trek line abruptly ended in 1977 even though it was still quite popular.

CustoMego Creations 2: Jackson Bostwick Shazam!

 

Welcome to Custom Mego Creations, a new series of “ how to” videos aimed at Mego Collectors and customizers. Since our inception over 20 years ago, the MegoMuseum has always embraced custom figures. We the practice change and evolve but the most important thing was that we weren’t responsible, it was the community itself, people sharing their techniques, their findings, their recipes, their talents, their hacks and most importantly, their time. CustoMego Creations is web series that serves a platform for our community of talented Mego makers and will hopefully inspire that creative energy in others. what we plan to have is guest hosts each week sharing their skills and ideas. We’re starting with a small group but plan to expand after that and hopefully, get this to be a weekly series. This Week’s episode we make a Jackson Bostwick Shazam! from the filmation television series,.
