My EMCEs now outnumber my Megos. Time to pick up a Neptunian...
A closer look at the new kid:

^^^ Mego had the color of material and the pattern already worked out, they just needed to leave off the rank bands, saving money right there. Even cheaper than Kirk shirts.
Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.
I was comparing Checkov to My original Kirk...and must say I'm EXTREMELY please with the Face color! They're pretty darn close!!

Believe it or not, face color is very hard to get right - especially caucasian
skin. There are a wide range of caucasian beige between type 1 - didn't
get out much - and type 2 Malibu tan.
On top of that, the Chinese had to switch from one type of PVC
to another just before production started last year so that affects
Well, I for one...certainly appreciate all the hard work you & your People in China put into it...cause you NAILED IT!! The Mego flesh color is pretty important to Me...which is why I often have Dave Mc paint My Resin Heads, because Dave can mix the color PERFECTLY! That and He does eyes better than Me too!
It's a personal thing, but I prefer cast color to painted color. Chekov probably ought to run closer to 'don't get out much' but he displays well with the others.
One teeny nitpick: Like Khan, his head is a touch small for his body. Would this be another side effect of the new PVC formula?
For my eventual Chekov arrival, I'm simply saving a minty vintage Kirk shirt I'm not using and taking off the rank and adding it to a new female crewman I'm getting later this month...
Peace.. Through Superior Firepower.
