    Did he come to Wheeling or CBus Meet? He was Museum active up until a year ago.

        Did a quite a few different Slurpee and Pepsi Moon Glass signs for him. Unfortunately we never got all the necessary elements for that Mead display. :(

          OH NO!! SAD News indeed. He did some great work. I wondered why he didn't post here in a while. Rest in Peace, Tim.

                Wow, that's a huge loss. He was a great guy had a ton of knowledge about vintage toys and comics (and collector glasses).

                  Terrible. Tim was clearly appreciated by many, including me.

                    Very sad news. He seemed like a very genuine guy. News like this is always very sobering. So sorry to all the people who knew him well.

                          I didn’t know him by name, but I sure knew his work and love of the Pepsi glasses. Sorry to hear this sad news.

                            I just saw this. So very shocked and sad to hear it. Tim was a stand-up guy. I picked his and Wee's brain for a Back Issue article on Avengers toys years ago.

                            My condolences to his family and friends, and all of his friends here too.

                              Just looked through his interview from 2007. Such imaginative work, and not just limited to figures. So sad to lose another of our Mego brothers...
