      Dear Mego Museum Friends,

      If you are like me, you've been thrilled to hear that our own Benjamin
      is publishing his book, World's
      Greatest Toys: Mego 8" Super-Heroes
      , this year. Like me, you are giddy
      with anticipation as you dream of the full-color, high resolution photographs
      and painstakingly researched information about the WGSH.

      Worlds Greatest Toys On Sale NowAnd
      if you are like me you've been MEANING to pre-order your
      copy — either through the Mego Museum's Amazon
      through TwoMorrow's
      Collector's Edition offer

      And if you are like me you haven't done it yet...

      If so, then I am personally appealing to you to pull that trigger now. Today.
      You've waited thirty or more years for this book. DON'T WAIT

      Benjamin Holcomb has been a part of the online Mego community since there was one
      and I'm convinced that only his considerable talents could have
      produced this outstanding book. I've been privileged to talk
      with Benjamin over the course of his project — but
      really, I don't talk, because I am speechless when I
      hear WHO he
      talked to and WHAT they told him about the creation of
      this legendary toy line. I have seen the pages, read some of
      the chapters, previewed the photos... and I for one am grateful that
      Benjamin did this work.

      That said — I also believe that this book is the result of all
      of our collective work
      over 10 years as a COMMUNITY here the Mego
      . This is YOUR book — It was your
      never-ending discussion of Mego, your never-ending questions and discoveries,
      your single-minded passion that drove this book into

      I am personally appealing to all of you to pre-order this book today.
      Please do not let it be said that the membership of the Mego Museum did
      not lead the charge in buying this book.

      As an added incentive, in the next 2 weeks, everyone
      who sends me confirmation they have pre-ordered this book will
      receive a free Mego Museum postcard!

      Thank you, and keep collecting them all,

      Scott C Adams


      Collector Profile: Rob Chatlin

      Rob Chatlin Mego Collection

      A NEW feature at the Mego Museum! Curator Brian
      interviews one
      of the Mego Community's greatest assets, Rob Chatlin.

      Rob's advice to Mego Collectors?

      "First, have fun with it! Collect what you love. Patience is a key,
      especially with the fast paced nature were experiencing due to the internet.
      Take the time to learn as much as possible, and be educated as
      you start buying toys. Use the resources available at the Mego
      Museum and other on-line sources. Ask questions, because someone
      before you probably asked it already. Ebay can be overwhelming at first,
      but if you know what you’re
      doing, you will be fine. We all approach collecting differently,
      and certainly, we all have different financial constraints and
      considerations that factor into our love of the hobby. Collecting is a
      passion of the heart, but don’t forget to use your head as well."

      Logan 5: Mego Museum Figure of the Month

      Mego Logan Five Action Figure

      A New Mego prototype action figure was discovered this
      past month and the Megomuseum had the exclusive. Introducing
      Logan Five
      from the TV series "Logan's

      The Mego Logan's Run line was often mentioned only as rumour
      among toy collectors. For over 20 years has been the
      subject of debate as to whether this was legitimate or speculation.

      The discovery of the REM and Francis
      prototypes in 2000 ended any doubt, but the show's titular character
      had yet to be found. Finally, after twenty years, collectors can get a better
      idea of what this line might have looked like. Visit
      the Megomuseum Logan's Run Gallery
