    Agreed!

    I'd like them to fix the belts so the phaser goes in the front and the communicator goes in the back, like they are supposed to

    I agree with that too. The original belts held the phaser without a rubber band and the new ones should too.

    That's the same issue I have with the line. Other than that my figures have been pretty good.

    The EMCE/Diamond Select Trek figures also used the rubber band, made the mistake of taking it off and I had to put the phaser on backwards in order to keep it from falling off, I had to buy a few original belts off ebay, to fix it up.

    After many years I purchased a 1974 Mego Star Trek bridgeset from eBay. I owned this as kid in the 1970's and really enjoyed it then. The set that I bought included a complete original Spock and Kirk that are in great condition. Taking a new look at original mego figures as compared with the new Mego's produced recently, it made me realize on another level that the newer figures from mego are just not the same quality at all. I am ecstatic to get new Mego's , but at the same time I am a bit disappointed that quality is so much worse than the originals are. Headsculpts, facial details, Star Trek uniform shirt collars, the change from a snap to the Velcro that doesn't go all the way down the rear of the shirt. The belt not being able to hold the phaser in. I hope they will start paying more attention to these things in future figure offerings.

    Few repros are as nice as the originals. And the new Megos are out at a very low price, mass-market price point. Some design elements are sloppy, some are a result of that price-point.

    I think BBP Ventures, DST/Emce Trek And Universal Monsters, and some FTC like Hanna-Barbara are indicative of better quality. And new Mego has done some beautiful figures, too. But IMO, their Trek releases are all over the place in terms of quality.
