This week I share possibly my favourite knock-off find of the last few years, meet the Krazy Kreeps, two eight Mego-esque monster figures that look so familiar. I’ll explain where we’ve seen them before, lots of fun surprises and mysteries.
MegoMuseum.com presents Mego Meet 2020 which will be held June 18th-20th, 2020 in Columbus, Ohio at the Courtyard by Marriott Columbus West. This will be our third year in Columbus. The hotel is located just off the I-270 outer belt and is minutes away from dining, malls, etc. http://www.megomuseum.com/megomeetmain/megomeetmain.shtml
This week’s installment of Toy-Ventures is all about the action figures produced by Larami for the 1980 TV mini-series “The Martian Chronicles”, just how does a mini-series get an action figure line the first place? We’ll try to explain.

Still working on resurrecting Megolike.com (although the facebook page is still up and running) in the meantime, here’s another line of modern figures that rocked out world. Slightly taller (at ten inches but then Mego made a few of those too) the Medicom RAH figures were gorgeous and flipping pricey back in the day. Now? I’m picking them up for $20 a piece. Above is Riderman from the Kamen Rider television series. More after the jump!
Of course these show up now, during my “most brokest” moment this year (well, toy money broke, the lights are still on) and while it pains me to feature them, I ain’t gonna jump in this pool.
Released in 1991, these talking mego like figures are pretty damned tough to find and obviously appeal to monster geeks (of which I am one) This seller hasthe Werewolf and the Vampire MOC, which are the two I want out of the set. Best of luck to everyone on these.
Megolike is gone, burned to the ground thanks to Melodrama.
What a waste but if you collect Mego Knock-Offs. Join our Facebook group dedicated today, it’s an intimate group that focuses just on vintage toys and never on other people/groups/websites. We’ll let other people do that: https://www.facebook.com/groups/Megoknockoff/
