Custom Mego Figures
This page is totally devoted to Mego figures.
I may start adding other Mego type
figures in the future but for now I'll work
with what I have. Now, let's get to those Megos.
I've finnaly added a new section to my custom MEGO page.
Here you can see what I've planned for the future of my custom mego
If you're interested in how to make a custom head for your mego

Evolution of a Custom Mego Head
Here you can find out how I made the head for my custom Joker.
For those out there who love
the work of Charlie Flatt, myself included, I scanned the ToyFare
Special #2 cover which featured his Venom
and Spider-Man. While the Spidey really impressed me, I thought the
Venom was a little shakey. I'm a Venom fan and I felt that he didn't
do the character justice. So here goes. The photo on the left is
Flatt's Venom andseeing how I used Venom's body for my Mego Cable All I
had was the head. A little cut & paste and here it is.
||Here's the original, yeah I know it's in pretty
bad shape but with a magazine as good as this you have to take it with
you everywhere you go. Almost all my issues are like this, or have
no cover at all.
After a little digital fixer-upper...
Charlie Flatt's Venom
Star Collector's Venom
I don't know what you think, but I like what
I see. Tell me what you think
Taking a 8" Star Trek Mego body
I resculpted the upper half and added a new head. After I gave him
new hands and plastic gauntlets to simulate gloves, the rest of the costume
was rather simple. The shoulder pads were sculpted with Super Sculpey
and the belt was from a Mego Lion Rock figure. Other details were
added using scrap plastic.
Robin is a 7" Lion Rock Figure body
with newly sculpted head. New hands and feet were added with painted
leather gauntlets to simulate his gloves and boots. The decals on
his costume were actually cut from the cover of a Robin comic book and
applied with glue.
Even though this figure is unfinished
I decided to post the image anyway. It is a standard Mego body with sculpted
head. Dressmaker pins were used for the nails embedded into his skull.
