    Mego Meet 2019 Kids' Customs

    Sorry I didn't post these earlier:


    Pics in a Google Photos album:

    Past winners Lily and Niki participated again. Both encouraged others customs this year and were honorary judges.

    Charlie Flatt -one of the masters of Mego customs was on hand to Judge with me.

    The unanimous choice was RCHE's son Cip's Spy vs. Spy.

    There were 7 kids who submitted entries. There were 14 figures entered.

    Every one of the figures were awesome, unique and well executed.

    Prizes were donated by - PLEASE HELP ME CREDIT the donor - I forgot who.

    Also on the memory loss are kid's names. -Add creator, figure name and better photos please. We had kid's of ChrisDVM, Earth2 Chris, Robin, RCHE, Brue, Kevin, and Robert (I think) -Anyone I missed? Anyone have a kid who custom did not make it to teh table?

    For those of you not familiar with this contest-

    It started as an adult custom contest in Wheeling.

    The rules are to acquire materials at dealers booths at Mego Meet and build the custom at the show.

    The trophy was labeled with the winner's name each year and travelled with the winner for the year.

    A kid's custom category quickly joined. Eventually the adult contests lost steam and the kids contest has taken the mantle of the trophy for the past few years.

    So in 2020 bring your kids to the Meet and encourage them to create!!!!!

    They can do it for little to no money. Many people donate supplies (David Lee is a sucker for kids). No one that I know of charges kids teh going rate on parts. Everyone is willing to share supplies. You can work on them in the show room, in the Mego suite, in your room or where ever.
    See past entrants for pointers and help.

    Getting help from parents is not against the rules, but the more they do themselves the better. Our youngest entrant this year did a sweet and simple custom of her dad. One kid (no manes here) Just painted a bikini on Penguin for one of her customs. Older kids made intricately detailed works of art. Everyone got a prizes (except Lily because we miscounted and she insisted others get the prizes).


    PS
    I can't post pics directly from Google (or at least I can't figure it out -sorry)

    Thanks for posting this. I love reading about Mego Meet (I will make it there someday!) and my favorite part of it is the coverage of the kids' customs. Great to see the creativity, talent, and enthusiasm that go into these.

    Hopefully some additional pictures will surface... maybe this would get more attention in the Mego Meet section rather than Finished Customs?

    Thanks!

    and I thought about posting it there, but I waited soooo long that I thought this was more appropriate. I assume people who care will see it where ever.

    Thanks for posting this, my notes were poor at best. One of the kids was written as "adorable little girl".
