This week we've revived an old column we used to write, the CustoMego Profile. We used to do this in the pre-social media days and missed doing it.

Some incredibly talented people are making some mind-blowing stuff, so once a month, we'll let you know the person behind the creations.

So this week, meet Randall and read his fantastic story.

Cheers,

Steve and BraIN

Last week, #MMFTCNEWS let the cat out of the bag that Figures Toy Company would be arming their action figures with an assortment of new weapons and accessories. This week, the selection has grown even more, with some new additions being made to the FTC armory!
 
New guns, a chainsaw, a crucifix, and shears are just some of the items being developed to coincide with all of FTC's new, original S Type characters and creations. Whether you want to use them with your officially licensed figures from DC Comics or with characters like FTC's zombies and aliens, these accessories will make your retro figures stand out even more than they do already!
 
The assortment of new accessories will be made available on FTC's sister site ClassicTVToys.com once they're available, and that's the same place you can find the variety of S Type bodies and character heads to create your own retro figures! Then there's also Figures Toy Company's main website, http://www.figurestoycompany.com, which is where you'll find your favorite characters from DC Comics, Hanna Barbera, a variety of pop culture icons like Evel Knievel and The Three Stooges, and much more! You can also get updates on FTC's current and upcoming products across all forms of social media, and more exclusive #MMFTCNEWS right here each and every Friday!
MegoCorp at Power-Con!!!

We will be at Power-Con the weekend of August 5th- 7th at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, OH!  Our booth number is #700, we will be in the first row of booths when you enter the Center at the far right! 

We will have Mego - Past, Present, and FUTURE with us!!!  Some very exciting things will be shown – you don’t want to miss it! 
The MegoCorp Panel is at 3:30 on Saturday, August 6th.  It will be across from the main entrance to Hall “C” where Power-Con's main showroom is located. We will have signs pointing to the panel room from inside the convention center concourse outside the Hall “C” entrance.  The fun doesn’t stop there, though!  

We will also host an after-hours “Meet & Greet’ for convention attendees. This will be a chance for fans to get an even closer look at some of the new items we are bringing, hang out with fellow Mego collectors, and talk Mego with Mego!  Details on actual time and location of the event will be released before the start of Power-Con!  We can’t wait to see you there!  Stop by, and let’s talk Mego! #MakeMineMego
Here's what we worked on this week:

Vintage Mego: 12" Spider-Man (MegoMuseum.com)


Vintage Mego returns with a look at one of Mego's favourite subjects, the Amazing Spider-Man. This time we look at the exciting development of the 12" figure and its many iterations and variants.
CustoMego culture has exploded on the Internet of late, and we at the MegoMuseum felt it was time to bring back Customizer profiles. Our first subject, Randall Wall, is new to us, and he’s doing some very cool stuff. Look for more profiles every month. CLICK HERE TO SEE HIS WORK.

Happy to reveal the first glimpse of the upcoming Tura Satana action figure. This sculpt will now be readied with a paint master for final approval before production.

Tura Satana Inc. is the only company authorized to grant official Tura Satana licensing and merchandise,Tura Satana Inc. was formed to ensure the credibility, quality, respect and attention to detail that Tura herself always demanded.
