    Body designation?

    We first had Type 1 bodies (briefly with plastic rivets then metal)
    We moved on to Type 2 after the first few WGSHs

    John Farley has called his hand made custom bodies type 3 toys

    David Lee has produced Type o bodies (I think that's hat he called them)

    New Megos: They look mostly like a T2 body. But I have not stripped one down. I bekieve the head attaches differently. Different mold? Different materials? Different ways to attach limbs an joints? CAn parts be interchange with T2 megos the way EMCE, CTVT/FTC can?

    Are the considered T2? Modified T2? T3? Something else?

    Type 0 was the first all plastic Mego body.

    That David Lee body is Type S.

    The New Mego body is the same as a Type 2. Only difference is the head attachment as you stated so works with all other parts interchanged. I've already made hybrid bodies.

    With all due respect to Farley’s cool customs, the natural answer is type 3 which is exactly why he named his customs that.

    Mego Corp has type 1 and 2 so Mego Corp moves to 3. Very simple debate if u ask me.

    But this sounds like the sort of thing adult collectors love to bicker about so I’ll go heat up some popcorn in the microwave and pop back for more responses.

    1st - I want in on the bickering.

    I say we call it the "New2" or "N2" for short.

    I'll talk to Brian. I think the best thing to do is go through every single reference on the museum and change them:

    V1 - Plastic pin AJ body
    V2 - Metal rivet body
    V3A - Standard plastic body
    V3B - OMBC body
    V3C - Fonzie body
    V3D - Fist Fighter body
    V3E - Rascals body
    V3F - Titans body
    FV1 - Female body
    FV2 - Female body
    FV3 - Female body
    FV4 - Female body

    *****I can't keep the small female bodies straight. I think there are four.

    I would refer to the new Mego bodies as T'Paul and T'Pol and John's bodies as Furley.

    I suggest we call them something else. We have type o, type 1, type 2 vintage and now type 2 new.
    I have Type 3. I have had Type 3 since January 2004. That's 15 years of Type 3.
    Please, someone come up with an original idea for a body name, like I did 15 years ago when I named the body I designed the Type 3.
    Thanks.
