    Mego Corp FAQ thread

    Due to the widespread misinformation I'm reading, here is my attempt to gather what i know:


    Is Gandalf Cancelled?
    No, he was delayed, that comes right from the president.

    Did Mego say they weren't going to make Scotty and McCoy?
    They did not say that, what they said was that they were slower sellers and Mego needed to be careful when they launched them.

    Why don't they do Planet of the Apes?
    Apes is now owned by Disney, all licensors future and existing (including Super 7 from what i hear) have to deal with the house of mouse. Mego staff have said that they want to do it but they need to negotiate with Disney first.


    Why do Mezco have Planet of the Apes now?
    Mezco does have a pre-existing relationship with Disney.

    Some of the Toyfair heads look big.
    Anything that's pre-production is 5% bigger, it shrinks in the molding process, Mego has a pretty good track record.

    Is that Picard the same one EMCE released with Diamond Select Toys?
    It is an entirely new head sculpt.

    What is in Wave 9?
    Looks like Q, Dee Snyder from Twisted Sister and the Hunchback of Notre Dame.

    You just nullified 7,309 Facebook posts.

    Is the consensus that 14" Shazam and Black Adam are still coming, as well as other 14" figures?

    I'm waiting to hear back from people who would know.

    It's sort of like "Rug Doctor" if you know what I mean...

    The answer I got loosely translates to "We're still doing something sometime" and I know a lot of people would appreciate if that could be dialed-in.

    If they can negotiate with Disney for Planet of the Apes, what about Star Wars, and Marvel Superheroes? Wouldn't those be in the same licensing possibility?

    Star Wars and Marvel are in the death grip of Hasbro, anything you try to do has to be run through them and according to Marty, they said no. They're the reason that the Marvel price point for 8" was $80 through EMCE/DST. They don't seem to care about pricey collector stuff like Sideshow, Mezco or Hot Toys but I guess the Mego price point hits them where they live.

    Now, Hasbro has to re-negotiate the SW contract for 2021 and there is always a chance that they could lose it or at least lose their tight grip on it but it's not an option right now.

    Was Gandalf lost in the Mego warehouse fire that destroyed many of the 8-inch Star Trek aliens? Of course I am only kidding. Thank you for introducing this FAQ thread.
