    Here is an idea I have been thinking of:

    Action Jackson 2099
    Author: Scott Greer(gman)
    Line: Re-Introduced Action Jackson
    Toy Execution (Vintage, Custom or Digital Art): Vintage/Custom
    Packaging Execution (Custom or Digital Art): Custom
    Toy Customizers/Collaborators: TBD
    Packaging Customizers/Collaborators: TBD
    Author Notes: Action Jackson was my favorite Mego and I always thought they could have and should have done more with him.
    Don't be sorry. How would you know? You've been watching MTV all your life.

    Dogtown and Z-Boys
    Author: Bryan Sanders (nayrbgo)
    Line: New Introduction of Skateboarding Action Figures
    Toy Execution (Vintage, Custom or Digital Art): Custom
    Packaging Execution (Custom or Digital Art): Custom
    Toy Customizers/Collaborators: TBD
    Packaging Customizers/Collaborators: TBD
    Author Notes: These guys (Jay Adams, Stacy Peralta, Tony Alva, to name a few) rewrote skateboarding and made it the crazy lucrative trend it is today. This happened during Mego's company timeline and most certainly captured the minds of kids all over. It would be great to also make "The Dogbowl" playset (a drained swimming pool) and have these figures doing aerial tricks.

    I am excited to announce that, after a conversation with him tonight, the incredible Otto Lange has offered to create an original oil painting for the catalog cover. He is very enthusiastic about the project. In fact, he is apparently devising his own ideas for possible inclusion.

    I notice that things seem to be cooling off a bit on this thread, though. Hopefully folks are plotting ideas…?

    Let's see if this project still has legs.

    I do, of course.

    For no other reason than, I'm the first one who piped up after you asked.

    Great question, even if it is a bit of a shill! The details (including participation from former Mego employees!) is currently being drafted by Brian Heiler, Dave McCormick, Joe DeRouen and myself. This is ONLY because the person who developed the idea for this project is currently sidelined. I'll let that person speak up when the time is right, but suffice to say now is not the time for him to be drafting guidelines and time lines!

    I promise that all will be explained… with ample time for participation. Perhaps we were a little anxious in putting this out there, but the idea is so exciting, I don't think anyone could wait to reveal it.

    I hope that, while the details are being ironed out, folks will continue to brainstorm cool Mego ideas and present them here. This is a collaborative experiment, so everyone will have time to participate.

    Not the best answer in the world, I know, but I hope it answers some lingering questions.

    Maybe you oughta change the title of this thread and make it sticky on every forum cause I have the feeling plenty of people haven't even seen this yet. Or they're not interested in participating.

    I wonder if Derek still has his Scooby Doo customs or if he already sold those...

    Derek's Scooby Doo figures would be PERFECT for this project! (Although I think in keeping with the time period the boxes would/will have to be redesigned as cards...no problem though)
    Think OUTSIDE the Box! For the BEST in Repro & Custom Packaging!
