    It's just very interesting how different the tone of the 2 groups is. Mego Mania is just more relaxed and pleasant. Whereas Mego Ambassadors just tear everything down like non-stop. They hate Target, they hate most of the figures, and they seem to hate Mego. Mistakes are unforgivable, even though these are grown men fussing over inexpensive, mass produced toys. Not to mention the endless stories of disappearing endcaps and speculation that the line is a failure or Target pulled the plug early. It's the same discouraging things over and over, day after day. I feel sorry for Mego and the mods. This is supposed to be their flagship group but instead it's like a bunch of barbarians. The entitlement is just baffling. Everyday I think I've seen it all and will leave the group. I guess the best way to really support Mego is with my dollars. And I have done that. Reading the rants can make me laugh but also sucks the fun out of this revival.

    I've known some public entities that have decided against having official forums for this very reason. I used to a manager over about 60 people in a manufacturing business and sometimes I would get fed up when each individual person would individually come to me and complain all about the same thing. Each person didn't know about all the other people complaining, but on the receiving end it was way too much collectively.

    I think these forums are like that to a degree. Some people just go in and post their opinion without looking to see if it has been covered 1000 times before. Then the people that read all the stuff get sick of it.

    As a boss or a company if you get tons of people saying the same thing, there might be some validity to it. I think Target employees are overwhelmed right now. I heard some in our Target complaining about being over worked and under staffed. Then you have all the toy area revamps and all that, stocking up for Christmas, etc. And the MEGO relaunch in the middle of it. If it had been the slowest part of the consumer year when the relaunch occurred it might of been a lot smoother.
    My posts were needlessly deleted ...

    The reason for that is, I knew what weeds to cull from my garden. When I started Megomania i got lots of requests from people that weren't welcome at the Museum because they were either toxic, ripped off members or simply didn't play well with others. None of them got in.

    The folks running Mego Ambassadors had no such playbook to draw from and they want the group to be popular but they also seem to be figuring stuff out.

    What is making me laugh now are the ones complaining that Ritchie Cunningham doesn't have red hair. Did they ever see the original Ritchie? No red hair there.

    Am I the only one that thinks Richie, with a change of clothes, could work as Cmdr. Decker?

    Exactly how I would have worded it. Nailed it. Thank you.

    End caps don't stay up forever. Vendors pay to have their product showcased on them. If Target is removing them it's probably because the deal is over.

    Can you imagine if social media existed in the 70's and Batman, Robin and Aquaman came out with those mittens. Oh the hate.

    I really am not a fan of Facebook toy groups...or any of the groups in general. I really do miss "Sites" that you can go to and hang and look at the galleries etc. It's why I like to come back here. It's unfortunate that Facebook has taken over...but this is the society we live in today...facebook is literally "Instant Gratification" I personally don't care to even try to trade with ANYONE on facebook that I don't already know. I also see on the facebook page the stench of "speculators" with the new Mego toys. It just completely rubs me the wrong way. I like it here very much thank you...and look forward to Mego Meet every year where there is the "Family Reunion" I really don't know what I would do as far as a Mego Collector if I didn't have this site to come back to.
