Hi there, glad I could join you. Let me tell you alittle about myself.
I got in on probably the tail end of the 8" MEGO series, I was born in 1973. I remember owning Superman, Spiderman and The Joker, all of which sadly are lost to time. I do however happen to have a CHiPs Ponch, turning zombie I'm afraid, and nursing a broken knee peg. He's missing his stickers, but everything else is present and accounted for.
A few months ago while at my in-laws home with my wife and son, my MIL was getting boxes of old toys out for my son to play with. Most of these toys belonged to my BIL's and hadn't seen daylight for almost a decade. Imagine my surprise when I opened one, and there on top was a MEGO Hulk (minus purple pants).
Nostalgia took over and here I am. Since finding this forum, I've been flooded with all sorts of ideas for custom figures, so I hope to gain all sorts of knowledge on the arcane ways of MEGO customizing.
I've customized several small action figures, as well as built some models. I love to sculpt and presently work as a graphic designer. My other hobby is replica prop collecting and building.
I'm afraid I'm not up to speed on all the details of MEGO figures and the overall "lingo" involved, so if I seem to lag behind, be patient.
