Thread: New Mego figure improvements...

  1. #1

    New Mego figure improvements...

    For those of us who like to tweak their figures, I have an idea or two on how to improve the look of some of your new Megos.

    Frankenstein didn't come with platform boots, but Starchild does. So a quick switch out of the boots is what Frankie needs. Acetone or fingernail polish remover would remove the silver details easily. Voila!

    Jimi could use a wider headband, so that's easy enough to fix with no explanation needed. But, what I used was self adhesive velour that I got at the art store. I made a paper template to make sure it would fit right before cutting it out of the velour.

    The charmed book of shadows looks way better with the edges of the pages painted white. Or maybe a thin strip of self adhesive white paper would probably look nice. Or maybe gluing a thin strip of paper. I guess it doesn't need it's own adhesive.


    What do you think are quick, easy improvements? Share your ideas.

    Agreed on the platform boots for Frankie, I plan on buying some for mine. Most Franks are too short and need that bit of lift.

    Great thread. Most of what I have done is complicated, but I have a couple of things I am going to try that might fit here.

    Okay, I tried your stupid suggestion and found no extra support, but it stretched out my socks and made my feet sore. And now the figures smell like feet...
    I don't think you're really a doctor, either.

    I'm reasonably sure that Dr c meant to put mego sized socks on the feet of the mego figures.
