After a 4 year absence, the Fantasticar is coming back for the Mego Meet custom auction!

[Monday before the meet update]

2015 Give-a-way! Every year we have a free gift at the LaserMego table. This year its a classy Mego pin.

http://megomuseum.com/community/attachment.php?attachmentid=15488&d=1433219953

Perfect for your lapel next time you need to dress up or just show your Mego pride. Free while supplies last.

[Tuesday before the meet update]

New packaging and display option from Laser Mego!

I've spent months working on a new display box for Megos. This one is made out of thin PETG plastic (0.03 inches thick) that is light but sturdy and cheaper than acrylic.

http://megomuseum.com/community/attachment.php?attachmentid=15492&d=1433302322

Its the same type of plastic used for vacuum forming and food packaging. The box is two parts that slip together. When together it stays shut and you can pick it up with a figure inside without worrying about it coming undone.

http://megomuseum.com/community/attachment.php?attachmentid=15493&d=1433302349

It also had "feet" on the side so that it sits very stable on a level surface. When you do want to open it, there are thumb holes on the sides towards the bottom that make it easy to grasp all put up on the outer surface.

Its very easy to add a paper insert, like this Black Widow one printed on card-stock to give it some depth.

http://megomuseum.com/community/attachment.php?attachmentid=15494&d=1433302431

Also available from Laser Mego for Mego Meet, a retro Black Widow. Featuring Doc Mego and CTVT parts with a Laser Mego 3D printed belt and bracets.

http://megomuseum.com/community/attachment.php?attachmentid=15495&d=1433302501

Stop by the table to see the new plastic case for yourself.

[Wednesday before the meet update]

We will be bringing back some favorites from previous years like Silver Surfer's surfboard and TV Captain America's shield and helmet set. Also, new for this year is a Robin helmet.

http://megomuseum.com/community/attachment.php?attachmentid=15499&d=1433399342

Another new item is Jimmy Olson's Superman signal watch.

http://megomuseum.com/community/attachment.php?attachmentid=15500&d=1433399398

(Picture is a little fuzzy, but it looks great in person.)

Probably not without modification. Either a "thumb-notch" could be cut into the hilt with a dremel or you could swap out the hand for a new Type-S gripper hand painted black.

Everything should be available at http://www.lasermego.com after the meet. I'm going to try to be better about listing everything, but if something isn't listed, you can always ask me.

I think the glasses will be at a special meet price of $2 a pair and will be $5 for 2-pairs afterwards.
