    I like that. I want to see that being sold on Doc Mego's web site along with his Dick(Grayson)heads.

    I am pretty sure that Bill Berger first uttered the phrase "type3" back in '93.

    "New custom on a dickneck body." It's pretty catchy.
    Coincidentally I am working on a Dirk Benedict figure.

    I don't think any of the original Megos ever had an official designation of T1 T2 etc. That was added by collectors. (Just like VWs -thank you if you understand that reference)

    So any designation you give it is OK.

    To be able to trade, repair, modify, and more with other collectors, it is good to have a common term.

    Steve is probably correct in calling it the New Mego body. It is commonly used and easily understood.

    John's T3 toys designation aside, there was a 36 year gap which makes it hard to call this simply the next number.

    But again, I am in this for the sake of bickering. I will join the side with the most power or whoever can reward me financially.

    Brian, I would like to be credited with naming rights.

    You also need to start a Facebook group purely out of spite and populate it with haters.

    Explains a lot about the negative energy on that app.
