Who will be Diamond Select's Fifth Marvel hero set?



Recently on the Mego Museum forum, Diamond's Zach out popped in to mention that Iron Man has not been confirmed as the fifth DST Retro Figure set and that another character may actually follow Thor.

As the Wolverine set has proved, the candidate for one of these sets doesn't necessarily have to be a character that was included in the original World's Greatest Superhero assortment.

There is nothing Mego heads like better than needless conjecture of the what the next wave of anything should be. So here's our guesses:

The Falcon- He was in the original WGSH and he's hot right now thanks to a certain movie, you could do original Mego. his weird green costume and his movie outfit to round it out.

Doctor Doom- Probably a long shot thanks to FF being cancelled but a three pack of Dooms different looks (starting of course with classic Kirby) would be greatly welcomed in my house.

Vision- He's had some interesting design changes and is set to be in a major motion picture this summer.

Pop into the EMCE toys forum with your top three picks for the fifth Marvel superheroes 3 pack True Believers!


 

What's new in Re-Mego!

Ummm, the ...uh... This Guy! is coming soon!

When I asked that genie for a "Mark Hamil" mego figure, I should have been way, way, more specific.

The C*** Knocker is from the universe of Kevin Smith and was played (with energy) by Mark Hamil in the movie "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" it's a coproduction of Diamond Select Toys and the good people at EMCE

You can pre-order this sucker from Entertainment Earth or at your Local Comic Shop. Loudly ask for it by name!

Batmobile: The Complete History looks like something Megoheads might enjoy. I'm hoping it features a section on Batmobile toys over the years or it's not so complete is it?
 


Vintage Mego Ad: From 1974,This ad from Spanish distributor Poch shows us AJ, Dinah Mite, the Super Heroes and the Monsters, a good group!

This photo of a Love Boat cast reunion has us talking (we are children of the 1970s after all) and wondering if Gavin MscCleod is a vampire or has a painting that keeps getting older. Join the very important discussion here.

Custom Spotlight of the Week: Black Spider-Man

This week the spotlight falls on Killer Iguana's version of black Spider-Man. Sometimes the simplest customs are the hardest to pull-off, and black Spidey falls in that category. KI's version is very believable as an 80s Mego offering.

 

Interesting Shopping at the Mego Museum Shopping Mall, swing by today and browse, we have plenty of parking.

 





















In Japan, Star Wars figures and Japanese Superheroes had a baby that resulted in these Popy World Hero figures from 1980.
