Kind of like an opposite of a wish list thread. What are some lines you hope they won't do?

A few I dread.

Waltons
Love Boat
Laverne and Shirley
Eight is Enough

I'd buy Lenny and Squiggy Megos! Don't remember seeing them as a kid, and I always loved those two, so I'm gonna throw a vote in FOR them. :P

there is not likely any market for any of those lines anyway. honestly, I was surprised by I dream of Jeannie, Brady Bunch and Cheers. not exactly action figure oriented lines and really only targeting collectors

Mego had planned on doing a Jeannie line back in the 70s so it does kinda make sense.

Honestly, I'll be in for every single figure in the first run and then some... not because I care about the actual figure, but because I'm a member of this forum that has talked about our childhood figures for years and years. You can throw out the worst figure you can imagine, and... I'm down! Seriously! If you're a member of this forum complaining about Mego coming back in 2018, ????

Just having a spot of fun at some tv shows that are maybe not the most toyetic. It's not really meant to be taken seriously. :)

Not directed at you in particular, werewolf. They could announce a line of Trump figures and I'd probably have to be down and buy some! Mego coming back precedes all other things.

I couldn’t imagine a greater nightmare than Mego Kardashians. However, I could get into a Mego Tammy Faye Baker from a limited edition Televangelist collection.

Will any of the older shows from the 70's or 80's appeal to a mass audience, or are they going for a older collector?

Not gonna lie, but as I'm into the NECA 8" horror figures, I'd be down for Cannibal Holocaust 2 figures.

Yes, I have issues. What of it? ;)

Given the current licenses that Mego has, it seems that nothing is off of the table. In saying that, by 2019, I’d bet Mego will streamline and get into a fine groove.

My only wish is that we see the return of Pocket Heroes; Marvel, DC or both. Those would have universal appeal and be inexpensive.

As long as we eventually get 8" Marvel Mego's again, I don't care what else they put out! Even Clown arounds! Please no Clown arounds though, have mercy!

Absolutely! The ReAction figures still have legs...the MOTU line is on it's fourth wave with no signs of slowing down. Pocket Heroes would be phenomenal sellers.

That's a tough question, since some folks have different opinions, what some don't want, there are others who do want.

I think it's safe to say WGSH are a want by everyone, with Star Trek maybe being next, and what about new mego making
Planet of the Apes? I haven't heard any mention of bringing back that line.

I would love these too CrimsonGhost! I would also like Vicki Lawrence, Fannie Flagg, and guest stars Carolyn Jones (Queen Hippolyta), Suzanne Somers (I want all of the Three's Company), Joan Collins (Trek), Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog, Escape From New York), Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween), and Kirstie Allie (we should get this one). Would we all enjoy those for customs?

Funny thread subject!
For me, anything that doesn’t really fit in the “Action” figure category.

I love that Mego is back, but can’t spend hard earned $$$ on Jeannie.
It’s cute, but not for me.
Action Jackson is a definite.
Maybe Sulu, just to support Mego.
14” Batman will be a mandatory purchase.

Richard Dawson would sell pretty well. I'd get 3 myself. 1 for Match Game,1 for Family Feud and 1 for Hogans Heroes.
