    Close Call With Disaster!!

    Working on an Elvira custom. Had a cool idea I will show more later. At least I hadn't seen it done before. Anyways...part of the idea involves doing major damage to a Mego female head. So I look in my magic parts box and see a vintage Dinah Mite head in really nice condition and a repro Supergirl. Awesome. Her eyes will be great for this. As I am about to go Insaniac with a razor knife I see the stamp at the base of the neck. NPP. This is like a mint condition vintage Supergirl head. Where the hell did it come from?

    It probably came from China?

    Not the rarely discussed Mego factory of Saskatoon?

    Pretty common knowledge that the Saskatoon "factory" never actually made anything... their stuff was all produced in Tuscaloosa and then shipped up there for distribution...

    No Lonnie is probably right. It probably came from China. Most notably Hong Kong. Thanks for clarifying. On that note I should point out that my question was more along the lines of how exactly did I get a vintage Supergirl head? I have zero memory of buying one on purpose. Random parts lot Easter Egg?

    It's the Mego Parts Fairy. Visited me many times; I have a bunch of pieces that I have no idea where they came from. Kind of the opposite of losing your socks in the dryer...

    Even weirder...I haven't bought a parts lot in 10 years and I moved twice in that time frame. There is literally no reason I should have a Supergirl head....
