    Ramblings from a Mego Meet "virgin" . . .

    Let me preface this by saying I'm trying to keep this short so if I miss a name or two my apologies.

    This was my first trip to Wheeling and if you have not made this event you need to put it on the schedule NOW!! (go ahead I'll wait while you do it and come back) it's worth every penny, every minute away from work or family, it's MEGO Heaven!!
    It's the Museum in solid form, just no marble pillars . . . yet!


    It was great to meet sooooo many people, some that I have known a short time some for 10 years or so via the internet. You guys made me feel like one of the original 8 and I had a blast.

    Some of my observations . . . . (names most likely misspelled)

    • The dealers room was everything you could imagine and more
    • The displays were top notch with super rare figures and even Love Boat stuff
    • The Sloppy Joes were world class and very sloppy
    • Art Baltazar (megomilk) is a HOOT!! and he's also famous!
    • Paul Clare knows how to throw a party!
    • Paul Clark knows how to WOW a room, good things are coming boys!
    • Palitoy likes Champale?
    • Derek Combs is one of the nicest guys I've ever met and sews all of his stuff by hand
    • ChrisDVM can cast & paint under extreme duress
    • By day three the Mego Suite had an odor you wouldn't believe
    • Tom Sacco . . . don't know the name? . . . you soon will
    • John Michaels can power nap
    • Ron you don't really need that Silver Soldier ape, do you?
    • If Brue were an AJ, . . . . . he'd be a Lion Rock version
    • Scott Arendsen' s son is a giant in training
    • David Lee & Jason know how to arrive fashionably late
    • Berto' has more parts than NAPA . . . he's a great guy too!
    • Brian Leitner is a customizing mainiac
    • YES, john farley's customs are that good!
    • NO, Derek Richardson never stopping working on his customs
    • Scott Adams has more rivets than the Mark I Armor
    • Ask Chuck about working back stage
    • I recommend HOSS'S steak house
    • I don't recommend Undos Italian food
    • Don't tell anyone but I saw some bootleg DVD's there
    • Thanks to all who purchased a Sheriff of Nottingham Figure
    • It was a genuine pleasure meeting everyone, a Mego dream come true for me
    • Dave McCormick needs a huge round of applause for being the lead on this event!


    thanks everyone!!!

    Glad to meet ya in person.

    Love the new Art B. Avatar.

    I'm with you on the not so hot Undo's. I think it is mainly a location thing so I assume we will stay there. My food was actually fine but I'd be happier at an all you can eat where people mill about - or even taking over the McDonald's were we could walk a thin line between being fun loud and you gotta leave loud.

    Very glad you finally made one of these Jim. If was a pleasure to hang with you once again. You're committed now until at least 2010.

    The best part of the meet is, and always has been, meeting old friends for the first time and meeting new ones as well.
