    MM '08 Mego Meet 2019 Exclusive Contest

    Hello Boys and Girls,

    Well, we are 4 months past MM2018 and my focus usually starts to gear towards next years exclusive figure about this time. MM2019 will be our 15th get together (not counting Mego Con in '04). In that time we've done 16 different characters. And frankly, I've kinda run out of ideas. So I thought I'd try something different for next year and ask the members here....

    "What do you think would be a good exclusive for next years Meet?"

    So here's the deal. Post what you think would make a good exclusive for MM2019. Around Christmas I'll narrow it down to 3-4 choices and pick one. The contest part is that the person's suggestion I choose will receive one of the custom exclusive figures in the package for FREE. You will also get credit on the package.

    Some things to keep in mind when making your choice:

    1. It has to be cost effective to make. Heads, suits, belts, boots, shoes, bodies, accessories and packaging cost money, wheither they are cast and molded, screen or 3D printed or just bought directly from Doc Mego or FTC. I don't get anything for free. I can't be spending a fortune to buy supplies.

    2. It should be a popular character every one knows. It really can't be a character only 3 people have heard of. Remember, I need these to sell out.

    3. It can be from any era. This covers cartoons, comics, movies, toys, whatever. Just something you think would look cool in the 8" Mego format.

    4. Only 10-12 will be made. I'll change something up about it for the customs auction like always.

    5. Think about how it would be made. Can it be made? Can a certain piece for it be made? Keep in mind I make them to look like Mego made them. They don't need to be Flatt or BK detailed.

    6. And again, I need these to sell out. The basis for a good exclusive is I don't bring any back from Mego Meet.

    So, think about it and post away. If you have questions post those as well and I'll answer them.

    Thanks all for looking.

    For those of us who haven't been around since the beginning, can you post a list (or a link to a list) of what the previous exclusives are? I know the vast majority of folks here probably already know, but some of us are newer (and with the Mego relaunch you are likely to see even more new faces around) and don't know all of them. I know last years and have seen pics of a few of them from previous years, but I don't know them all. Having a list would a) prevent people suggesting something already done and b) give them a look at what's feasible as a suggestion.

    How about Warduke from the LJN Dungeons & Dragons line & D&D cartoon...





    D&D is more popular than ever (it has its best sales year ever in 2017), the 80s cartoon hits all the nostalgia notes, D&D toy toys are still very collectible and most of the accessories can be cobbled together and modified from the Mego Knights line.

    Also Michael Myers would make an awesome one.

    Bela Lugosi as Igor.
    I've had this one one my personal design table lately and was preparing to start his head sculpt. Could be $85 area

    Michael Myers is currently on my design table and heads are being made (good, exact, movie-style heads) Could be $65 area

    Clash of the Titans
    Perseus and Pegasus...yeah...ambitious, but I am almost done ;-) expensive but extremely limited... :-/

    Pennywise 2018...yeah, another ambitious and possibly-out-of-mega-meet-budgets...but I'm almost done. Expensive but very limited... :-/

    I like the War Duke suggestion. I have a broken one that could be donated for casting.

    But...if we're talking about anything...it just has to fit the criteria...



    Ant-Man/Giant-Man boxset is my choice. Austin has the suits. (correction) Mego has the 14" scale bodies. Bowen has the Kirby head sculpt. You could use the Heroclix Ant-Man...for an ant-sized man!...and have someone 3d print it or buy 'em outright.



    It completes the WGSH Avengers lineup. Cheap to make. Would easily sellout. You could make 50 and they would all move. If I'm not mistaken, he's a big part of A4 which will be out just a few weeks before the Meet.
