Top Five Mego Lost Figures

We've all heard of unproduced Mego lines like Ark 2 and Logan's Run but what about the figures that were cut from established Mego lines? Now thanks to some information from a mego insider we present the Top Five Lost Figures, characters that were cut from the team before production. Check out what might have been here.

Anthony's neat Aquaman 3 pack is on display in the customs forum.

Tomorrow is Megomeet, hopefully I'll see some new faces there this year. That means the online portion of the raffle will close today at 5pm EST. If you haven't got your tickets click here.

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.
