Planet of the Apes Month Begins

Planet of the Apes Astronaut

"I'm a seeker too. But my dreams aren't like yours. I can't help thinking that somewhere in the universe there has to be something better than man. Has to be."- Astronaut George Taylor

As we begin our journey into the Mego Museum Planet of the Apes event, we begin with the Astronauts. Unlike previous sets of cards, Scott Adams has made the Apes cards tell a story so it's important to begin with the Astronaut, our first card in the series.

To better help launch this series we've updated and revised the gallery pages for each character, come see the new information and pictures each day we reveal.

Stay tuned to the Megomuseum forums for details on how these cards will be released.

Wizard World Chicago Highlights

Thanks to some extra credit card air miles and very generous friends, I found myself at Wizard World Chicago this weekend, soaking up the superheroic vibes.

The show was a great mix of media, guests and toys both new and vintage. It wouldn't be complete without folks walking around in costume would it? Now onto the Mego Content:


Our own Megogeek at his booth, Charlie brought a great mix of Mego and other vintage toys, bronze age marvels and Treasury editions. I spent a lot of money there.

Mark Huckabone

In what should come as no surprise, Mark Huckabone of Heroes West Coast brought an unmatched display of vintage toys. Some great deals were available and I ended up with a happy purchase.

Batman and Robin

Batman and Robin the teen wonder (literally) showed up on Saturday afternoon as did Doom himself, this guy towered over everybody. If you look closely in the back, you can see a display of EMCE toys Star Trek dolls.

Doctor Doom


These customs were made by a fan in the eighties and were just awesome, people were scooping them up just because they were so fun. I wish I had grabbed that Vision.


12" Mego Spiderman as Giant Man, wonderful.

Mattel displayed a glimpse of the upcoming year of Superheroes, it looks like the future will be expensive for me. For more of this coverage please check out our Modern Toys forum.

I left this years Wizard World with a full suitcase (and cardboard box), the predictable empty wallet and a lot of great memories. I hope to save a few more airmilesfor next year.....

Scott whipped up this neat little "teaser trailer" for our upcoming Planet of the Apes cards, showing just how labour intensive these things are to produce. It's worth it though.....

August is Apes Month!

Just because we've been quiet doesn't mean we're not working, actually we're working even hard then usual. Starting shortly will be a month long journey to the Planet of the Apes line by Mego with newly revised galleries, photos and artwork. It's going to be great but bear with us.

Dave hasn't been idle, he's incorporated all the recently released EMCE toys Star Trek rerelease figures in accessory check so you can distinguish repro vs original.

Stunning is the only word I can use to describe Cat's amazing Automan custom, based on the short lived 80's series of the same name. I can't think of what's more surprising, the fact that the figure glows in the dark or that Cat has never seen the series!
