Toy-Ventures Toy Show Recap https://youtu.be/7C-NZGwTj50
Toy-Ventures is on the road this week with a visit to Ontario Collectors Con with a recap of this busy toy show. Also, a tale of real regret and what I picked up. So what are some of your toy show regrets? Let me know in the comments or the Pod Stallions group!
Mego Knock Off Headquarters– The leading group discussing 70s Dime store knock-offs of Mego action figures, we talk vintage toys and not others. We know the difference between Astro Apes and Action Apeman! It’s a really fun group where we talk about Lincoln International, AHI, Tomland, Bogi, Demo Man, Mortoy, and other generic greats.
intage Mego this week looks at the Hall of Justice Playset for the Mego World’s Greatest Superheroes Toy Line. This deluxe Mego playset came out in 1976 when the Superheroes were the hottest action figure lines going.
The Hall of Justice was not in the comics at the time, just the Super Friends animated show. We look at the Legion of Superheroes prototype, the Green Lantern appearance, discuss its translocator feature, and talk about that other Hall of Justice Playset Mego made that year.

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!
This week we’re not going to talk about making a custom but rather look at some fond memories and celebrate some creators. Fans make the coolest stuff and let me introduce you to some of my favourites like the Supermobile, Jet Jaguar and Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, you’re gonna love it!
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,.
