Megomuseum gets some Press
This month's Model and Collector Mart features an interesting Ape article and Mego photos provided by the MegoMuseum. Read all about it on our forum!
Our own Rob Chatlin is having the Ultimate Mego sale at the Mego Museum Marketplace, check it out while you can!
A new Customs Gallery has been created this time it's the very talented Laurie Halbritter, who is not only terrific at sculpting and painting, she also has a penchant for great subject matter, including cool superheroes and obscure B Movie Monsters. Well worth a look.
If that wasn't enough, our own Lou has shared pics of his mego customs of almost every Six Million Dollar Man character, Oscar, Maskatron, Fembots, Bigfoot, they're all present and 8" tall.

After 30 Years a New Mego Figure Discovered
Megomuseum.com is proud to unveil it’s latest discovery, Logan 5 from the TV series “Logan’s Run”.
This never before seen figure has a likeness based on the star of the 1977 series Gregory Harrison. Mego planned to produce a range of Logan’s Run toys but CBS Television abruptly canceled the series before 1978 Toy Fair thus forcing Mego to cancel the toy line.
With less than a handful of samples produced, few of these items have survived. In previous years samples of supporting characters such as villain Francis 7 and Robotic sidekick REM were finally found but until now samples of the show’s namesake character had eluded collectors.
Today, Mego collectors can finally get a glimpse of what might have been with the Mego Logan Five prototype.
Discuss this on the MegoMuseum Forums.

Your Modern Stone Age Family
Thanks to Chris Johnson, the Museum now has a gallery devoted to the very rare Mego Flinstones Playset. Definitely not your typical Mego item but one you might add to your wantlist after seeing it, it's that cool.
Check out Todd's amazing Jackson Bostwick as Shazam custom! The only thing that would make this better is a Mr Mentor to go with it. OK, maybe a winnebago....
Dave never seems to stop amazing us with the 8" Star Wars figures, this time it's his take on Lando Calrissian Works every time.

Fill it up with Green Goblins please!
Thanks to Dan Edwards, the Museum now has pics of a Mego World's Greatest Superheroes shipping case. Few of these would have survived in the day so we're rather pleased with this update.
There's a reason they call him "Captain", here Captain Mego shows us his unbelievable Custom Mego Starship Enterprise Bridge. A playset so detailed, you'd think he just shrunk the original somehow.
