    Great collections. I myself only had HULK. Also I wonder why they didn't make Iron Man figures. Little metal men made of die-cast metal seems a no-brainer. Another Mego mystery of oversight.

    This is the first custom playset I ever did, and is probably about 20 years old.

    This is how I spent most of my afternoon on the computer.

    Yup, feeling just a bit Draconian. I have recieved 9/10 of the figures I just bought. Six of those needed new O rings but 3 of those, at bottom, have rusty screws, so I am waiting until I am set up to clean them to replace those.

    REPLACING THE "O" RING IN THE GI JOE STYLE ACTION FIGURE.

    In this case, using the Mego Buck Rogers Wilma Deering figure.

    First disassemble the Aveng...(ahem) figure. For this you will need a very small cross tip screwdriver. I picked up this set at Home Depot for about $3.

    Remove the screw in the back of the figure and pull it apart. Remove the old/damaged ring from the 'coathanger' joining the legs together and replace it with a new one.

    Insert the ring into the lower torso and pull it through. If you have fat fingers like me, you might want to use the screwdriver for this

    Now hook the ring over the back part of the upper torso. Place the head and arms on the back and carefully lay the front over the back. Lean the figure back until the front drops into place.

    Insert and tighten the screw, unless you lost it when you took it out, in which case, you are screwed.

    Some old worn out rings and their replacements.

    My Mego STTMP bridge arrived today. It is in excellent condition but will require a few days to be photo ready.
