    And as a bonus it will show just how much work really goes into making a quality playset for people who complain about the prices.

    The deluxe custom playsets were several hundred dollars. I think at the end of the run I was charging $600 for a Batman set, $350 or so for Star Trek. Just because of all the labor involved. They were designed to be something you could do as a custom but hardly anybody ever did that. If you simply bought the vinyl parts and made them yourself they were $25-50 and up depending on what pieces you wanted.

    "Dida" was my nickname for my grandfather who bought me my first Megos. Similar to Mego that people mispronounce Meh-go instead of MeeGoh it's Dee-Dah, not Die-Dah.

    Seeing these large sets in person at MegoMeet X was incredible and really made me appreciate the effort put into them, I could understand the cost.

    The Lair, Hall of Justice, Castle and Monster backgrounds look amazing!

    I'm curious, how many backgrounds will be posted in total? I'm going to have to do some saving up to get all of these!

    EDIT: I didn't even realize there were addition pieces in some of the sub-menus! Oh please let there be a Legion of Doom set too!
