      I'm a huge Flash fan, so I'm thrilled to finally own a genuine Mego 8" Flash. But as much as I like this figure, I actually prefer the FTC version. They simply nailed it IMO. Another new Mego I really like is Black Adam. Just a very neat figure that fits in perfectly with the originals.

        Deathstroke is decent but a better selection of weapons would have been cool. And those new Klingons are amazing.

          Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie are my favorite newly made figures. Love the outfits and the packaging they came with.

            Without seeing the final product, I'm going with Red Tornado. Dude was one of my favorite characters. As a kid I would have flipped out if I'd walked back to the toy section at T G & Y and actually found a Mego Reddy! Fifty years later, I have one on order. Thanks Mego!

              Ultraman takes the top spot. Oh how I wish I had one in the 70s( I used Bulletman as my Ultraman). I hope Mego does it in 14" scale. Superheroes wise Flash, Green Lantern(two of course as kids we wondered why Mego didn't make them(but we got Kid Flash

                I prefer the more Silver Age FTC Flash too. My Mego Flashes have costume smallness issues (not all do, but mine do) and I think the paint apps don't do the head sculpt the justice it deserves. Not a bad figure, and he is on the shelf, but not as good as FTC's for me.

                That being said... for me, it's Green Lantern. When I pulled him out of the box... Whoa! I thought FTC's Hal would be very hard to top, but I could not replace it more quickly on the shelf with the Mego version. One of three Mego figures Santa never bought me, the other two being The Flash and Hawkman.

                  I think Stan Lee with the web hands is pretty great. I love the head sculpt, and the hands of course.

                    My favorites (which were HUGE surprises) are Nosferatu and the Mole Man. Also the Universal Invisible Man, the Rocketeer, the Fly, and Green Lantern; his costume is PERFECT

                      ...for me, it's the Christopher Lee Dracula. (I did transfer him onto a Type S body to have better articulation.)

                        To pick just one I guess I would have to go with Sulu. I wanted one as a kid and was great to finally get a real MEGO one even if it was decades late.

                            I'm a fan of the Apes additions especially the Mutant and Taylor. I loved the Klingons and the majority of Hammer items they released.

                            While most people love the 50th WGSH, I long for more of the above. Hopefully, it will come.

                                I did not get a straight answer on that, more that it was up for renewal and Marty is a fan. It doesn't give me anything other than there are figures in ready to go into production that might not happen. Sorry.
