Forgive me if this has been posted elsewhere already, but I have not seen it on other threads so I thought I would share.

This full-page solicitation appears in the most recent (May 2013) Previews, which is a magazine we comic geeks use to pre-order comics, toys and merchandise from specialty stores.

The stunning ad, depicting FTC's Series 1 "World's Greatest Heroes!" line, should be enough to get any Mego fan's blood pumping. I posted this to my Tumblr (http://createteria.tumblr.com/post/49218730771/full-page-solicitation-in-may-2013-previews), and I'll try to post it below.

I have enjoyed reading everyone's comments about what Figures Toy Co. is doing. Pretty impressive and exciting stuff!

Now that is pretty sweet. Nothing says "Mego" and "Batman" like that particular shade of pink.

I can still remember going to child world and my aunt bringing me there for a gi joe figure or a star wars figure. At the back of the store there was a clearance rack and for the price of two star wars figures, I could get four megos. I remember grabbing these exact four figures (might have gone hulk and not riddler). I can not wait for this.

It doesn't get any more retro than that.

Nice! I wish these would go full retail so we could see some endcap headers and such. Also glad we are not getting the dstressed look this time.

I don't know, I'm looking pretty distressed myself, with all this stuff coming out....

I see that each card is individual: Batman has his image highest on the card, and the same goes for each character.

I like how the cards are Mego color.

Sweeeeeet! I need another robin figure anyways too, my other one went zombie on me, I'm definitely going for the removable mask one this time around.

I just hope they get to the other characters. The body issue doesn't even bother me, as long as they get what I want out. Yes I'm greedy and basically I only care about myself. Deal with it. ;-) Have to admit the stuff drips of mego goodness.

If anyone is interested in sets of these, feel free to let me know- would end up being approx. $95 per set plus about $5-7 shipping depending on where you live. Feel free to PM me with your interest.

What I want out of these guys (besides consistently good bodies) is color, color and color. No more faded or dull capes. No more pale flesh painted face Batmans. I hope Riddler's suit is bold and bright green.
