    IMO, Mego needs to get away from anything Star Trek

    People are sick to death of Star Trek

    Irwin Allen Classics …. THAT'S THE TICKET !!!

    Maybe I’m bias but Star Trek is a very popular line then and now, we bought them back then to play with, now we buy to display and support mego. People who are sick to death with Star Trek are in the minority, IMO. The problem for me is, less variants and more new characters. Scotty-McCoy-Chapel, Klingon and Andorian would be a nice addition, instead of variants of Kirk and Spock. We got a correct Gorn and I would love to see a correct Talosian and Mugato, I think people would buy those. I also like what mego is doing with TNG, and hopefully we will see the rest of the crew and Klingons and Romulans too.

    Agree with everything you said, especially for TOS. Thanks,

When Mego started up again I was certainly hoping to see all these by now but I am losing hope every wave that comes out. Love most of what they're doing but I'm not a big fan of multiple variants of the most popular characters.
    I'd be all over this.

    Why not Irwin Allen classics and TOS? I'd go for both.

    I'm not sick to death of Star Trek. I don't think any real Star Trek fans are. I do agree the Irwin Allen classics would make great figures for fans of those shows.

    Sounds like the other toy makers. Doesn't sound like Mego. Part of my love for mego is the simple innocent charm. This wouldn't appeal to me but I see how it could to others who collect Hot Toys, Neca or Mezco.

    ^^ I don't get that?… Mego made lots of accessories and playsets, and even sold multi-packs. None of those elements/efforts negatively impacted the brand, quite the opposite with many of those items being popular at the time and [still and maybe more so!] highly sought after now.

    It's also the 21st Century and we're already seeing the contemporary Mego proving that little wow factor goes a long way.
