When was the last time Mego collectors and customizers had it so good?  Mego Corp has pumped out a diversity of figures since 2018 that surpasses their first incarnation in the 70s and shows no signs of slowing down.  FTC has a breadth of licenses of fan favorite properties, and an amazing list of parts on their sister CTVT site.  NECA is still in the 1/9th retro figure game, and there are small boutique independents like White Elephant Toys, BrentZDolZ, etc. for those who want to go a little off the beaten path.

So what? Well, I think it's worthwhile to reflect on just how much easier it is to enjoy Mego today.  In 1978 if I wanted a Mego,  my mom had to take me to a store and hope that they had something in stock that I didn't already have.  Many of those trips were unsuccessful and  most of my Gabriel and LJN figures were consolation prizes of failed Mego missions.  Catalogs were OK, but you never knew what was still in stock and the odds of missing a character increased over time as older catalogs expired and new ones went to print.

Jump forward a few decades, and Mego and Megolike figures are just a click away.  Or, if you like the thrill of the hunt, you may well have some luck at Walmart, Target, Meijer, ToyRUs, or your LCS.  If you're a customizer like me, isn't it great that it's no longer necessary to cannibalize an existing figure to make another?  Even if one has minimal skills there are nearly inexhaustible possibilities for the kitbashers among us.

Long story short: Mego life is good.

Things are getting silly over at Figures Toy Company, because a new wave of Three Stooges retro figures has just arrived! In case you've missed seeing FTC's initial announcement, this week's #MMFTCNEWS will tell you all you need to know about these new collectibles!
 
New versions of Moe, Larry, Curly, and Shemp are available in full waves or sold separately. The full waves contain the four in your choice of tuxedoes or gangster suits, while the new solo Stooges releases consist of Boxing Curly (inspired by the classic film "Punch Drunks"), Shemp in his gym sweats, and Shemp in a suit with his infamous thick lens glasses!
 
Also available from FTC right now is an assortment of costumes for their monster and horror-themed figures! The new costumes will be available on their ClassicTVToys.com website, and feature items like Clown costumes, Zombie costumes, and Fur costumes for their retro styled action figure bodies!
