In an effort to combat post holiday blahs, we're going to post some new Mego videos all this week, starting with these two commercials. The above commercial for the Mego Star Trek the Motion Picture ship line of toys (which are quite rare) and the below ad for the mega rare Micronaut vehicles Ampzilla, Sharkos and Lobstros. Enjoy!

Recently, we at the Museum were lucky to be contacted by Mr. Harvey Zelman, former product manager for Mego, who was game to share his experiences. Mr. Zelman had his hand in much of Mego's output during his six year tenure and he answered many nagging Mego collector questions (Like why are the Flash Gordon figures 10 inches tall?)
It doesn't end with Mego. Harvey is also the man responsible for a pop culture phenomenon, read for yourself.
Comment on the story in the Mego Museum Forums.
Thanks again to ever gracious Gerhard, we have a wonderful German catalog spread for the Mego Knights featuring the very rare jousting horse. As an added bonus, Gerhard shares with us that the Knights were marketed in a unique fashion in Europe.

I think Scott describes this card better than I could: We've come in on the epilogue after the fight with the Andorian. It's as classic a Star Trek moment as they come: Kirk triumphant and smug, Spock and McCoy trading humorous barbs about Vulcan logic, cue music and closing credits...
For information on how you can receive a free set of Mego Museum Star Trek trading cards, send an email to tradingcards to get on the mailing list! We will notify you when the cards are ready to go. Keep checking in this month for more views of the upcoming card set.
Todd does Hawkman a little Mego Justice with this wonderful custom.

Hot Damn! If these cards weren't getting cooler, Scott had to put a good old fashioned Monkey fight into the mix. The Mugato, is another cool card made out of a regrettably dressed Mego Star Trek Alien. Enjoy!
There are five more updates left!
Check out Anthony's groovy 60's Batman two pack.

Updates continue with the Mego Talos card, the diminutive alien wouldn't look right fighting Kirk so Scott whipped up this very cool dramatic scene complete with "trek lighting".

Mego Star Trek Aliens cards roll out beginning with the uber fun Cheron card. Mr Spock shows Bele who's boss on this star ship.
The Custom Spotlight goes to Austin's Reb Brown Captain America, a sweet bit of 70's TV cheese.
Also check out JMC's golden Age Hawkman, from the "All Star Squadron" comic, pretty sweet.

We're unveiling the aliens this week with the ultimate Trek baddie, The Klingon. Scott has played a little with the format and wow, I'm glad he has. As he puts it "the Aliens exist for one reason: So Kirk could have someone to kick in the ass." Check it out here.
Please Santa: Alberto has just completed this killer Spider-woman custom. Color me jealous....
Friend....Goooooood! Also check out this cool Bride of Frankenstein diorama by Thomas.

Another addition to our Christmas Wishbook section, this time it's the Mego Waltons/Wizard of OZ offerings from JC Penney in 1975.
Pop Culture Customs
"Teany Weeny Super Beanie pointing towards the sky, give me muscles, power, strength, make me a super guy" I'm loving Todd's treatment of the Archie Superheroes.
Austin brings in the 70's TV goodness with his Reb Brown as Captain America custom, love it!

This week's custom Spotlight is this killer Cathy Lee Crosby as Wonderwoman, the movie may have been regrettable but there is nothing wrong with this detailed custom!

You really can't have Kirk without Spock so today's Mego Museum Trading Card reveal is a real no brainer. Personally, I think Scott has done another outstanding job of capturing the essence of what the figure is about but judge for yourself.
Want to know how you can get these cards? Check the page for a new announcement.

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!

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.
