It may have gone out of business in the 1980s but it’s hard to keep the World’s Greatest Toy Company down. The Mego Museum and Wulf & Tyger are proud to unveil their latest project, Megozine, the official magazine for Mego collectors. Megozine is dedicated to keeping the company’s spirit alive whether it be vintage toys, newer figures (dubbed ReMego by the Museum), Knock offs or colourful custom creations.
Issue one is packed with colorful surprises including:
Secret Origins of the 1/6th Scale Superheroes- Which details Mego’s 12 inch Superhero figures and includes a never before seen prototype of a never made Mego 12″ hero.
A Mego Museum Super Collector comic adventure “Escape from the Planet of the Knockoffs” with art by Chris Franklin
Six Monsters, A Girl and a Mailer Box- A look at the Lincoln International Monster figures.
Aw Yeah Megos- Interview with Eisner award winning Art Baltazar about his passion for custom Mego figures.
Megozine will be ready for order in December 2012 and subsequent issues
will follow every six months. For more information please visit
About The Mego Museum:
MEGO MUSEUM was founded in 1996 by Scott C Adams and was the internet’s first website devoted to the toys and action figures produced
by Mego Corp. It has since grown into the premiere site for action figures both vintage and modern that utilize Mego’s signature 8″ format.
The site includes exhaustive galleries, interviews, custom galleries and
a collector forum. Each June the Museum hosts an annual convention
called MEGO MEET.
The BAT-BLOG.COM is all about the many different angles of the Batman character but our main focus is the joy of collecting both New and Vintage Toys. We’re always announcing brand-new memorabilia coming out, so you can hunt it down, but every now and then we like to torture people with photos of very rare collectibles, ha ha!
Here’s a great example: Check out this Vintage BATMAN Swimming Pool Ring Float Toy 1974. This one is still in it’s original package but you can also see what the toy looks like in the photo on the header card, very cool!!
Next up is a fun set of DC Comics Superheroes and Villains Refrigerator Magnets. There are quite a few Batman-related characters here: Batman, Robin, The Joker, Catwoman, The Penguin, and even The Riddler!
Then, for your viewing pleasure, is this Vintage Trade Publication Advertisement for some DC Comics Superhero Drinking Mugs called, “Supersteins!”. I have the Batman one and really love it because it features Neal Adams artwork. They also made Superman, Wonder Woman, and Shazam ( Captain Marvel ).
Last, but not least, is the 70′s BATMAN UTILITY BELT made by Remco Toys. This pic shows the original window box packaging which is totally cool. I wish I owned this thing like it is in the photo but I only have a few loose pieces. Still, this thing is really great!
