    Star Trek EMCE prices have dropped......

    EMCE prices have dropped......

    Is anyone else seeing prices drop on Mego & EMCE figures?

    I had to sell mine 4 or 5 years back. But this week, I have been able to
    start replacing my EMCE collection, on the cheap side.

    Chekov $25
    Gorn $28
    Kirk $20
    Klingon $18
    Sulu $22
    Uhura $30

    Plus currently someone has the original 6 Megos on eBay for $35 MOC $55 BIN
    but all the cards are cut off so... MIB mint in bubble?
    Who stole my stuff !!!

    I don't know what the big deal is about the prices drop so what? Now everyone can get these Megos not just the chosen few this is why I always hated "exclusives" that what killed alot of toy lines for me...

    EMCE's weren't exclusive. Any comic book store could get them if they ordered them through Diamond. I had no problem getting cases of these through them when they were released. Now Target and the 1st three waves of Mego figures...that was exclusive. Still doesn't explain the prices going down in my opinion. The EMCE's were a lot sharper than the "new" Megos. I personally think that it's the same old same old from Trek collectors. They, for the most part, are very fickle fans/collectors and don't want to spend as much on figures as they do with the prop stuff like phasers and replicas from the series. Been doing toys and toy shows for almost 25 years and that's what I've seen. They also give up really easy on the figure collecting because they literally scream for all the characters to be made...but freak out when they are actually made/offered...again, going back to the economics part of the whole equation.

    Well that's not me there are more of the re-issue trek figures than the EMCE figures it's just certain people complaining "It's not worth that much anymore!" really? are you in it for a collector or trying to make money on this?

    See this is how MOTUC is they had a Shadow Weaver figure that was a sub exclusive and it's really hard to come by and is a really demanded figure (I have one) and I don't have a problem with them re-releasing this figure BUT they are hardcore fans that are ****ed off and saying the same thing "My original is going to go down that's not fair!" So what? since when did this hobby only cater to people that where in the right place right time only?

    EVERYONE that want's these should get them bottom line...And who cares about what a few fans think...

    callistofreak Thanks for posting the good news/heads-up!

    What I'd like to see drop is the Universal Frankenstein. I didn't pick up any Universal Monsters and don't really have a favorite, but I like how they came out but never acted on it.
    I would start working on a set if Franky could be had for a more down-to-earth price.

    Well that's not me there are more of the re-issue trek figures than the EMCE figures...
    Is it known what kinds of numbers the Emce Treks were produced in? I never buy stuff for investment, but I think the packages, at least, from Emce suit the Trek figures better, display-wise. Can't beat new Mego's Mirror, Mirror boxes, though!
    If Emce's numbers tended to be lower than 10,000 (I'm assuming some figures' numbers would be lower/higher than others) then I expect the drop in prices to be temporary, so people who want them should not hesitate.

    The EMCE line was also available at retail, at FAO Schwartz. they certainly were not exclusive, although there was at least one, that was exclusive to an online store - Khan. I don't recall if any others were

    I think Khan was the only exclusive--and even it was easy to obtain from DM. The rest were plentiful through any DST retailer, FAO, and also Blockbuster Video. In fact, they were probably more accessible than the Target releases.

    But we could be wrong, as just a few greedy fans...

    you are correct about Khan though, in fact you can still get it on Dr Mego's website.
