MegoMuseum launchs “Megozine”
November 25, 2012

It may have gone out of business in the 1980s but it’s hard to keep the World’s Greatest Toy Company down. The Mego Museum  and Wulf & Tyger are proud to unveil their latest project, Megozine, the official magazine for Mego collectors.  Megozine is dedicated to keeping the company’s spirit alive whether it be vintage toys, newer figures (dubbed ReMego by the Museum), Knock offs or colourful custom creations.

Issue one is packed with colorful surprises including:

•       Secret Origins of the 1/6th Scale Superheroes- Which details Mego’s 12 inch Superhero figures and includes a never before seen prototype of a never made Mego 12” hero.
•       A Mego Museum Super Collector comic  adventure “Escape from the Planet of the Knockoffs” with art by Chris Franklin
•       Six Monsters, A Girl and a Mailer Box- A look at the Lincoln International Monster figures.
•       Aw Yeah Megos- Interview with Eisner award winning Art Baltazar about his passion for custom Mego figures.

Megozine will be ready for order in December 2012 and subsequent issues will follow every six months. For more information please visit www.megomuseum.com.

About The Mego Museum
Megomuseum.com  was founded in 1996 by Scott C Adams and was the internet’s first website devoted to the toys and action figures produced by Mego Corp. It has since grown into the premiere site for action figures both vintage and modern that utilize Mego’s signature 8” format. The site includes exhaustive galleries, interviews, custom galleries and a collector forum. Each June the Museum hosts an annual convention called Mego Meet (www.megomeet.com)

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
