Idea for Mego Meet 2010
I was considering creating custom Viewmaster 3D reels as a record of the next Mego Meet. I wanted to see how many people would be interested in buying these before I commit to doing it. How many of you out there would buy reels, (sets of 3),that document a Mego Meet gathering? What would you pay for something like that? I can tell it won't be as cheap as a mass produced set in toy-stores but how much is too much? What is affordable to all of you?
If the response here is pretty good I was thinking of doing more than one set. I think we have basically 4 catagories. I may whittle that down some more or I can expand based on popularity. Topics could include:
Mego Meet General Overview
Mego Meet Events
Mego Meet Vintage Toys
Mego Meet Customizers & Customs
These catagories are broad and can include 3.75" figures such as Micronauts, Pocket Heroes, vehicles, playsets, etc. Not just 8" action figures.
This is not a go yet. If there is little or no response from you guys it probably won't happen. I thought it would be cool to do it. I'm doing my research on this and am looking into getting the cameras and reels. I am thinking that these would be available in the fall of 2010; some months after Mego Meet. Post your thoughts here. If you have some technical assistance to offer in photography you can PM me as well but for the most part share your ideas where everyone can see them.
