Hey All. I want to post a question to everyone. I have been thinking for a couple of years now of doing the first female exclusive for a future Mego Meet. Problem is I don't know who to do. So I thought I'd ask the very people who will buy it. Who do you think would make a good Mego Meet exclusive?

Here were my initial thoughts:

Maid Marion (from Robin Hood)
Annie Oakley (from American West)
Queen Guinevere (from Knights)

I was kind of staying away from heroes and villains since FTC may make it and most people make their own customs of those.

Please keep in mind several things. I try to make my exclusives as Mego-ish as possible - so you know the detail I'm going for. Also, how easy will it be to find the head, suit, boots, gloves, belts, etc. Do I have to get someone to make a piece (like a crown)? Can I get pieces from Doc or CTVT? Does something have to be sculpted and cast? Stuff like that.

So think about it and post away. Just remember they are made to be sold so it has to be something you think people will want and buy.

Thanks.

The Gwenevere never got past the photo stage. I believe it was to be in the Knights line. Photos show it to be a Supergirl head which is readily available. I think the eye color wss different. Im sure the catalog pics are in the gallery.

I knew that. It's late, lol. The first to pop into my head was Guinevere.

In my opinion Scott the ones you listed are too easy to kitbash and a little on the bland side. I agree on staying away from heroes, at least DC, but I kinda like Kevin's idea of Elektra or another Marvel gal. You could go crazy and do something like Diamond with Spider-Woman too, since they'll probably never get to females.

Wasp or She-Hulk. You could take an FC Storm and shrink to scale.

Only real upgrade I would recommend is don't get caught up in threading hair. Someone here provided wig pieces. If you went that direction, you could use better, non Dynamite, head sculpts.

Electra Woman would be a good choice. Amazon has a reboot coming out next fall.

I'd love to see Electra Woman & DynaGirl, both very possible & very Megoesque with the existing parts and talented resources here.

Thinking outside the box here. Any chance of doing a female counterpart for Brick Mantooth? I mean, I know he can't be tamed, but maybe there's some sort of lady to catch his eye. Give her a name like Veronica Chestington, Grace Skirtwell, Babe Foxworthy, or something along those lines. Could be kind of fun.

Got that covered. Man Mates will have a Brick's Chicks assortment as soon as I tie up some loose ends. Standard Doc Mego female body in black or white depending on the lady. No enhanced bosoms; Brick likes his ladies with their vertebrae non-compressed.
