With this year’s Mego event being next week, we thought it might be prudent to provide this handy show guides to newbies (welcome by the way, glad to have you) and as a refresher for our ” Mego Meet Veterans”.

Are Kid’s Allowed?
We encourage you to bring your kids, we have contests and crafts for them as well as door prizes specifically for them.
Is it a Mego Only show?
Heck no, we just love toys, be them vintage or new. While our focus is Mego, we welcome everybody. Even if you don’t collect Mego you’ll probably find something you’re into at Mego Meet (but obviously our dealer’s room has a drop dead selection of Mego too)
Thanks to generous donations from Figures Toy Company and Entertainment Earth:
All attendees are automatically entered into our daily drawings of Mego Meet door prizes as are your kids in a separate drawing. This year we have prizes from NECA, Lego, Figures Toy Company, Hasbro and Bif Bang Pow! The pile is always growing too.
