They are in the mego section and really look great! I am far to stupid to post the link, but I have the auction #220130583387.
If one of you guys who is better at this than me would'nt mind posting the link.
Just copy and paste the link, even Helen Keller can do it.

They are nice...but I see some things that definitely need some tweeking. First, if you are going to do the early outfits with the Pierre Cardin suits, get the pants to match the jacket. Shoes....all wrong. They are supposed to Beatle Boots...not Penguin shoes. With that said, the Ringo head is probably the best of all 4. I think that the customiser NAILED the Ringo head. The others are OK. John doesn't have that smart alec look to it that it needs. Looks like they should have used Paul's head for John. George is not bad. Nice effort...not $160 nice though. The early Beatles look is a lot harder than the later looks...I have to give the customiser some props though. Nice start.

I thought you would like this Blue Meanie. They are not bad at all. I noticed some stuff on them as well, but all and all, they are pretty good. At $40 each, I dont think the price is bad at all.
They are a nice start...as for early Beatles, not a big fan of that "cutesy" look. Much more of a fan of Pepper and Abbey Rd. Been working on Pepper Customs for literally years. Finally may have found the perfect Jacket Pattern for the Pepper outfits...and it's been staring me in the face for as long as I've been wanting to do these customs. Now all I have to do is find the right colors and material and off I go. Trying to keep the heads as Mego as possible...one, because I can't sculpt... and two because I like Mego customs that have that Mego feel/look to them.
I sold the seller some of the parts to this. Nice to see them come to fruition. Took me a bit to get the order completed and shipped, but the pants are CTVT Curly Joe's, and the seller was originally going to use Klingon boots for these. Personally I think Trek bodies would have done the trick myself. Overall, an excellent effort, and for $40 a pop with custom boxes, I think its a pretty fair deal. I did get a bit of a song and dance about the Hard Rock Casino supposedly wanting to display these, but I guess that didn't pan out.

I agree, Ringo looks the BEST...He really nailed the likeness! But Why not use Star Trek Bodie's...They'd make perfect Beatle Boot's?????

They're pretty nice, but I agree--- Alan Carter as John is the worst of the lot.
Besides the look, Lennon's face also needs to be a bit fatter.
Overall though, a really nice set.
