Customizing action figures to create previously unmade characaters, or improving characters that were made, has become a large part of the Mego collecting hobby. From the most obvious omissions in the original Mego line, to the most obscure characters, custom Mego figures have been made by collectors of just about anyone you can imagine.
How is this done? What has been done? How do I get started? How do I improve my current skills? Where do I find tips, suggestions, tutorials, resources and supplies? What if I just enjoy looking at and not making customs?
