    Castaway Toys Captain Action at NY Comic Con '08...

    Went to the NYC Comic Con at the Jacob Javits Center and had the pleasure of meeting our own gaga4toyz (Jason) from Castaway Toys. He had an incredible Diorama and prototypes of the new Captain Action figures that they are putting out. All I can say is I would buy them in a heartbeat. Great looking figures and the packaging looks great...right down to the newly designed artwork by another mego museum member Earth 2 Chris. The new bodies that they are making are really nice cross section of a Mego bodie with a little bit of Lion Rock arm sockets and swivel biceps from LJN. Very nice and they have weight to them. All in all a great addition to Megolike toys that are out there. The pics that I have will not do them justice so here are the pics of the Castaway Captain Action:














    Some really great looking figures, and hopefully some more to come. Jason also showed the new parts that David Lee posted about in Replica chat before. The new gloves etc. Nice stuff. I have to say I was very impressed with what they are going to offer. I know I am going to buy the Captain Action figures when they come out. Classic figures with a new slant to them. Good Luck to the guys over at Castaway. Hope to see you down at Megomeet.

    Wow thanks for the pics Berto! I talked to Jason last night and he told me you would probably be posting them.

    I know I've had a small part in this, so I may be a bit biased, but even if I didn't, I gotta say that this is beautiful stuff here. This is the first I've seen of the finished Phantom, CA/Phantom and Redbeard/Dr. Eville. They look amazing. Jason's insane dioramas are just incredible. I know he lost lots of sleep making Dr. Eville's lab. The amount of detail is just mind-blowing. The Phantom's throne looks like it was made out of real stone. Whoa.

    The figures themselves are just stunning. Mego-like, but with enough improvements to make them appeal to an outside audience as well. It's pretty obvious that big guns like Hasbro and Mattel couldn't and wouldn't do these as well as Cast-A-Way has.

    Its an honor and a privlege to be associated with Jason and David. They are making some incredible toys, and they are a swell bunch of guys to boot!!! I have had a lot of fun working on the packaing for these. It's a dream come true to be a part of this and work with such great folks.
