Is the show online or repeated? I wouldn't mind seeing the reveal of the Megos.

Whoops didnt even realize there was a thread going before I posted my own message. Anyhoo, I am kind of on the fence about being "rigged" or not. I would almost tend to believe it but for the fact that along with a diamond suit Spiderman and Lizard and Green Arrow and the other nice figures there was also a carded Hulk and what looked like some other commons. The thing I found most interesting was all of the other stuff the comic store guy kind of low-balled with a 2 to 3 hundred dollar estimate. We are talking Clash of the Titans, carded Crystar, and even a carded POTF Amanaman. I wish I could buy all of the other stuff for 300.

The episode is called "Midnight in the Gardena Good and Evil". It looks like it airs again Sunday night at 10pm ET.

Here's the Mego scene from the A&E site:

I think its time that Hasbro puts out their own Marvel retro action series
^^ I thought better of it. I had posted that video with the Mego Museum name on it, but began to have my doubts that it's "real", and the more I thought about it the less I wanted the Museum's name associated with it.

I noticed them, along with Benjamin's book
I've been to that store many times,
but this is the first time I ever saw Mego's there.
Good eye! And I see a carded Spider-man and Ben's WGSH book right next to them.. at 4:13 and 4:38 of the video link I posted.
My cynical take on this is that the area comic shop owner (obviously a diehard toy guy) contacted the show (or maybe vice-versa), and pitched the concept of finding the old toys and super-rare Megos. The show runs with his pitch, and in exchange he gets his mug and store on TV.
You'll probably see him show up again when one of the buyers scores with a valuable lot of vintage comics..
It was worth a call though!
