    I apologize for the rant in advance, but:
    Megos.
    It's Megos.
    I'm not usually a spelling nit-picker but you are at the MEGO museum. Show some respect for it and your fellow members by checking your spelling for that one word at least.
    It's like going to DisneyLand and not being THAT into 'Mikky Moose'.
    Here at the MEGO museum a lot of us are THAT into 'em.
    The Memo Museum is in East Virginia.

    I shall be very proud and great.
    And tell the other girls and boys,
    not to meddle with my toys.

That world is now supplanted by boards like this and eBay, but man I miss those days.
    Ebay also made everyone aware of the prices. It's become the best price guide in the world and everyone has access to it. I still get deals a toy shows but I can remember picking up some great Mego deals from Barbie and GI Joe dealers because they felt 8" lines were crap. I could pull handfuls of stuff from the bottom of boxes like Ironman gloves and Goblin boots and pay a buck or two for the lot. Now I miss the good ole days too.
