June 18 2001 After 5 terrific years at Raving Toy Maniac the Museum had to move on to a new home. We do not know what RTM's future will be now that the great Eric Myers has left that site, but it was clear we needed to move quickly to give the Mego Museum a safe home in the event RTM shut down. All Mego Museum fans join me in thanking Eric for giving the Museum a home for so long and giving us so much freedom and support along the way. Thanks, Eric!
The good news is we finally have our own domain name like a real grown up site!
The World's Greatest Super Hero Award this year goes to long-time online Mego booster Joe DeRouen! Joe stepped in and offered the Museum a home on his servers at Sparkynet. Joe went on to help with the technical detail of the domain transfer, as well as add new functionality the Museum has always needed. Turn to Joe for all of your web-hosting needs!
Check out the NEW Mego Buzz Boards and Mego Marketplace. Users must now register to use the boards, and we hope this new policy encourages more civilized discussion about all things Mego. We would like these boards to become the positive community forums they were always meant to be.
We also have a new SEARCH ENGINE! This is a site that definitly needs one!
The other nice thing about having to move the Museum is it inspired Scott to work on art for the site again. Brian "Palitoy" Heiler will still be the curator of the site, doing his great job of bringing us rare finds and the benefit of his Mego knowledge and experience..
So check in with us now and then and keep believing in Megos.
