Author Notes: Only showing the cards for now. Made sure we used the 1978 Marvel card featured on page 237 of the Holcomb book. Assigned them item codes in sequence with them also. Redesigned the back and eliminated all the heroes and included all the new characters plus GG and Lizard. Figures to come soon(er or later). :wink_y:

Here are the first four. The remaining two will be posted by May 20th.

I am trying to make these as close to what I think Mego would have done up to, and including, the coding on the cards. I hope you like.

Great minds must think alike, or something like that. I have a Doom, Ock, and Red Skull in the pipeline. Your cards look awesome, as I'm sure the figures will too.

Cool! More WGSH related stuff. I was hoping we'd see some more for this project related to WGSH. Can't wait to see the figures!

Ha! I just noticed the amount of green fabric needed to make all those customs! Are all villains GREEN?!?

Nice cards, by the way.....

I noticed that too when I was doing the cards....the villains love them some green! I think I read before that a lot of times green and purple are used for villains to counter the primary colors, reds and blues, that a lot of super-heroes use.

Austin those figures look simply amazing.

The only way I can briefly comment on exactly how cool I think those 6 customs
are is to say that although I own around 120 DC/MARVEL superheroes and
villains customs -- well -- there only about 15 of them that I'd consider "vital" to
complimenting the original MEGO WGSH collection.

With your choices, you deftly and boldly chose six of those 15 --- and you
made a HOMERUN on each one.

Just amazing.

Reminds me of that FLASH ROGUES GALLERY thrill I got about ten years ago
-------------courtesy of YOU :)

Still goin' customizin' strong after all these years DOROTHY

Much appreciation-------your favorite SCARECROW---

Hugh :)

P.S. congrats on your recent inclusion into the re:Imagined project---
I think you really deserve it!!
