A very rare addition to the Mego Star Trek galleries is this Vulcan shuttle produced for foreign markets exclusively.

Cool Customs

Last week's custom spotlight went to Bryan for his AMAZING set of Kiss customs. Fantastic work Bryan!

This week, our spotlight goes to long awaited efforts of Lou who decided to take on the daunting task of creating Mego customs of his favorite Movie and TV superheroes, very impressive Lou but no love for Nicholas Hammond?

A lot of neat new things at the Museum this week, first off, Dave has added more lines to Mego Museum Accessory Check including the ever popular Mad Monsters and Tex Willer figure lines. Now you can compare original parts to repro on even more Mego lines!

The Mego Custom Spotlight falls on Scott's very cool treatment of Japanese Henshin hero Thunder Mask. What a great idea.

Speaking of Customs, Hector is auctioning off this very limited Gene Roddenberry custom that was produced two years ago, you never see these babies anymore. Read the thread here....

I've never seen this guy in the comics before but I have to say that Jason captured this Image comics character to a "T". Simply awesome and worthy of this week's spotlight.
