Mego Meet Recap Part 3: Displays

Mego Meet 3: Display Rooms
If the dealer's room wasn't eye candy enough there was more than enough distraction for the Mego fan. Firstly, the raffle prizes were staggering this year, many thanks to the amazingly generous folks in our community who made it the best we've ever had.
It seems fitting to have a convention for the Megomuseum in an actual museum and this year's toy displays were breathtaking:

Planet of Apes Mego Display

Mike Jimenez brought an inspiring amount of Planet of the Apes rarities to display this year, I'm jealous of your focus Mike.

Dan Crandall brought easily one of the best MOC World's Greatest Superhero collections in the country. Below is a short video of this display.

The display room was bursting with 70's joy as usual, from Flinstones playsets to customs to a display of rare Micronauts from Ray Miller. All of this under the watchful eye of some creepy Twilight Zone-esque Mannequins. Click below to see a video of the Display room:

Part Four: Presentations and Wrap Up coming later today.
