Vintage Mego will be in abundance thanks to folks like Blue Meanie, these type two monsters won't last long nor will this beauty of a mego Superheroes display card:
Here is Mego Spidey's Megomeet display, bet it looks even better in person!
Here is the box for this year's exclusive figure Doctor KromeDome, ignore that webslinger, box creator Mike just put him there for show.
Boss is bringing some of his custom creations to the show like this lovely Superman.
Forget Matt Murdock, the Knock Knock Toy Company will have a different Dare Devil available...
Mark sent in this great Canadian Grand Toys version of the Buck Rogers Star Fighter today, a truly hard to find piece.
Other Mego Rambling:
Tom posted his exhaustive collection of Mego meet Photos.
An extremely rare Kresge Carded Shazam is on Ebay.
Cool Customs this Week:
Mike Rogers went to town with these amazing Emergency customs.
In the midst of all this, Chris Johnson's Megomeet exclusive figure "Mighty Mightor" went on sale and sold out. Chris always takes these projects on himself and we're glad he does.While the day was winding down with our Custom Auction and Bandwidth Raffle (both great big successes, thank you very much) I decided to take a look at the epic toy display that was on the upper level.
John Santori provided this fantastic Star Trek bridge for our centerpiece this year and it was well appreciated. I was really smitten with the attention to detail here.
Ray Miller provided a beautiful display of Mego Micronauts including some rare prototypes from the Lords of Light line. Micronauts don't get enough love at Megomeet, so we're lucky to have Ray.
Finally the hall was home to the selections from the 1978 Project, that Scott tirelessly worked on all weekend. There was also space to some of Mego's rarer items including a horse display that was pretty impressive.
Eventually it was time to pack up, have our well attended annual meal at Undo's and head back to the Mego Suite andbegrudgingly say our goodbyes. We made a few new friends this year and that's what this is all about. Mego Meet 2008 was another roaring success and a tremendous reflection of all the good people that I'm happy to be affiliated with.
See you next year!
There is one more card to be revealed and I'm sure lots of updates from the floor of Megomeet, so if you can't attend, please stay tuned.....
One week until Mego Meet, hope to see you there.
Then if you haven't already come see all the entries at the Mego Forum, there is an intoxicating amount of talent and imagination put into all of these. Well done, everybody!
From 1974 Steve Banes opens a Mego Mad Monster Wolfman. Steve got all 4 of the Mad Monsters that year but this is the only one with a photo. He tells us he simply could not wait to have Wolfie kill G.I. Joe.
