Mego Meet Recap Part 2
Saturday morning came pretty quickly and I had to motor if I wanted to make the first seminar of the day (I was the speaker). Lucky for me, Scott was on the ball and ready to go before me.
I got my first big break in the form Cathy, Mrs. ABMAC who volunteered to sell raffle tix during the day, I really can't thank her enough for that.
I immediately ran into Chris Johnson (DVM2) and got a great shot of the show's exclusive Jet Jungle Action figure.
Austin Hough of Reproheads.com was set up beside Chris with an array of silk screened suits including some rather obscure characters.
As I mentioned the first speaker was myself in a commentary about Mego's unproduced lines, touching on a few things I haven't yet at the Museum.
While the attendance for my seminar was better than expected, I was also very happy to see a few folks such as MegoSteve (You can read his own blog about the Mego Meet experience here) and Mike J, both were undecided about attending but at the last minute drove through the night.
11:30 AM saw Benjamin Holcombe unveil a never before seen look at his upcoming book World's Greatest Toys to his target audience.
Word's can't describe the combination of Ben's passionate speaking and the beautiful sneak peeks of the book. HIs photography and attention to detail are awe inspiring. Ben's presentation ran over an hour and could have gone on longer.
Coming soon Part 3- Micronauts, Customs Contest, What Mark Brought and the raffle announced.
Scott unveiled this new Mego Museum Trading Card Art on Saturday morning in the form of a poster, somehow he managed to take it home as well.
