My haul:
25698

A bunch of custom fodder. A Mego Uhura and a Diamond one for the red uniforms and bodies for customs. Parts and heads. Glow bodies for Mad Monsters (took the glow bodies, stuck the actual Mego monster heads on them, used the costumes from the CTVT figures and a few Mego parts for the Ultimate Monsters. The new monster hands are the best I've ever seen in this style of figure). Four nigh pristine Little Rascals/Our Gang figures (been looking to get some of the old Mego stuff I know there's no chance of seeing a re-release/re-Mego of, and this line is at the top of that list). More apes coming using the parts I've got there to go with the wagon and catapult (put up a new apes display to accommodate those). Deciding whether to rearrange the DC Mego/re-Mego bookshelf for the Super Friends meeting table and chairs, or set up a separate display for that. I know soon I'll be going down a "make some custom spacemen/women" rabbit hole with the LaserMego helmets and jet packs. Three nice pocket heroes to go with the four I ran across cleaning stuff out recently. Some of the heads from Austin's table from Mike Barrett; gotta do something special with at least one of those. Cool spooky figure from Castaway; have to charge him up to see the glow skeleton pattern on him tonight. I did great, though my wallet may have issues with that statement...:)

I didn't get much this year, tbh. I was only there Friday. I was in full on Tokutaku/Sentai mode, so here's my haul:

25704

There is one other figure I wanted, but my con budget didn't allow for it, but I'm hoping to get in touch with the seller, to pick it up.

Very light year BUT I have something huge coming from eBay as well as the signed Mego Corp banner I won in the customs auction.

Completely unexpected, but RCHE was very kind to sell me a Lily Ledy 12" Vader with a unique looking custom outfit. Very grateful to have such a fun conversation piece in my collection.

Got a vintage blow mold Spider-man Halloween bucket from Justin. Wish I had come by his table earlier, since he said he had sold The Thing already (anyone here score that one?)

Found a Captain Action Batman Suit (with sticker), cowl/mask, and boots in pretty good condition at Big Fun, the collectible toy shop in Columbus a few of us visited as a Mego Meet field trip on Friday.

Let's see, New Mego Nosferatu, Freddy Kruger, Invisible Man, red-caped Dracula and Bruce Lee (which my daughter gave me after she won it in the kids custom contest). A nice SMDM figure with engine block. A Captain America Pocket Book reprint digest. A set of Pin Mates I won in the raffle. Vintage Halloween Pumpkin lantern and flashlight. Mego Kirk and McCoy 3.75" TMP figures. A cool Snake-Eyes like figure Jason had made. Two Post cereal premium DC comics.

I'm sure I'm forgetting something.

Oh, and Cindy got a 14" Mego Wonder Woman from Dani winning the kids' raffle. She was very generous to Mom and Dad!

This reminds of the kid in class who would go above and beyond with their class project or presentation. Always had mad respect for these kids. I became one of them. ;)

Great stuff, Brian!

I splurged this year.

However, I have an interesting story...
When it comes to getting a custom figure, I don't do it with the notion I can flip it for profit. I buy because I want that constant reminder of the person(s) who made it.

So - James Brady and Dave Mc - Trek.
I foolishly, and regretted nearly instantly, sold my carded Salt Vampire and Orion Slave girl a number of years ago...regretting it quite a bit.
As I made it a point to try and hit everyone's table this year, I came across those very two figures! The second I spotted them, I knew they were the exact two I had sold from my collection. Seller was gracious to deal with me and even sold me a loose Brady/DaveMC Gorn on Hulk body! (now I have two gorns!!!)

At the very end of the day Saturday, that rascal Berto is loading up and somehow we all start joking about the boxed Wayne Foundation he didn't sell...well, It ended up in my hands instead of his cart lol. We set it up in the MegoSuite that night and had some fun!

The below photo is the loot from what me and The Boy came home with.
Would have even been more, but I got outbid on soooooooo much stuff in the Auction...

and to think....the only thing i told The Boy I hoped to see was a random carded vintage McCoy figure...and low and behold, I saw only one and I bought it.

Happy to see it go to a GREAT home. I wish I had gotten enough time to see everything...and I didn't. I missed out on the Perseus figure and a whole bunch of other stuff. Maybe next year I come as an observer and collector....I really am contemplating this.

I came to the meet wanting to finish a custom of the second Doctor and hoping to find a CTVtoys 3 Stooges Moe for the portrait. Sadly, I did not see any Stooges on tables this year. They might have been there, but I missed them. So my Pat Troughton Doctor is going to have to wait.

I did trade for a great Mego Meet shirt from Hulk, and I picked up a Super Joe outfit I was missing, so now my AA Super Joe won't feel so chilly. On a whim, I picked up an Ultraman head, but missed out on the ready sewn outfits, so that project will probably have to get in the queue behind the Doctor. :) I think the coolest thing I brought home was a drawing of Art's grandma (or great-grandma) and the fantastic memories of our conversation about her and the four corners area in NM and CO.

Great scores from all the above posters and congrats on all that everyone brought back to your collections. :hokay:
Those McDunsel items are awesome. Cool to see them come back in a circle. Someone needs to make a display of those for a future meet.

Old school I scored a MOC Kirk, a mint Kid Flash and a mint T2 Riddler. Very happy.

Also got 3 very mint and very complete Rainfall Bible great figures. Wasn't looking for them but Berto is the master seller.

Added the awesome Space Helmet and WHAMM!! sign from LaserMego.

Got my new Mego fix from Chad with the 14" Aquaman and the Trek set.

Also got a lot of custom stuff from Austin and David Lee.

I'll try and get a picture shortly.

Thanks to everyone who towed the line and set up the meet. Totally awesome!!!!!

I got a minty boxed Frankenstein (restrung figure) from Blue Meanie
Minty complete original Supergirl (last loose figure I needed for WGSH-- except secret identities) and Wil Scarlett (original but missing sword and dagger)- in great minty shape from the Bronx Brothers
Mugato - mint on card- nice card with some lift on the bottom (Should I loose this guy??? torturous decision to be made)
4 carded AJ outfits
4 acrylic cases for my boxed Monsters
EMCE Creature from the Black Lagoon


Also- the pleasure of meeting Mark from KY and his son, a real live soldier ape, and a whole room full of my kind of people
- the glory of seeing Steve's Kraven custom- among many others
- meeting Marty Abrams-
-anticipation for the coming mego waves and the promise of four 8 inch heroes- let's hope it's the tip of the iceberg.

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE ON THIS SITE FOR AN AWESOME COMMUNITY.
