Mego Meet 2008 ReCap Part 3 Seminars and Toy Display

Like every year, folks from the Museum community step up and offer to run Mego Seminars in order to provide entertainment for the day. This also helps to thin the crowd down at the dealers area, so it's really win/win. This years seminar's included "Mego Mythbusters" headed by yours truly, Dave always gives me the early class after a pub crawl so he's a lot like my guidance counseller. Dave followed up with an Accessory Check talk based on his tireless efforts in that department.

After our group photo, Doc Mego discussed EMCE toys to a standing room only crowd, the final seminar was the Custom Q & A headed by a foursome of well known Museum customizers, which is always well attended.

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.

The rest of the display room was no less impressive, with an assortment of rare 3 3/4" figures provided by Chris Johnson and of course, an 8" display that is unmatched.

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!

Eagle Force Launch Article plus magazine alert!

Thanks to Spencer Peet, we have this cool 1982 piece about Mego launching the Eagle Force. Mego was known for causing a stir every toyfair and this is their last big hurrah, a very interesting look into the events of 1982.

The next issue of TV Film Memorabilia promises to be Mego packed with an in depth history of Mego piece written by the aforementioned Spencer Peet. Many of the photos were provided by the Museum so it promises to be a great read.

Raffler Reminder: Online Ticket Sales for the Megomuseum Raffle close tomorrow evening. You can still purchase tickets at Megomeet if you're planning on attending. YOu do not need to be in attendance to win although it would be great to see you there.
