Joe Namath's Helmet

posted Jan 11, 2019, 7:36 PM by Paul Wasson   [ updated Jan 11, 2019, 9:01 PM ]

Mego is making an 8" Joe Namath figure that should be available soon.


But his helmet is just a blank white helmet.  I made some pre-cut stickers with the proper logos (unfortunately, I only had a yellow helmet to test it on):

Playing around with a prototype light-up display for the new Mego KISS figures.






Display Cases Redux

posted Nov 16, 2018, 10:59 PM by Paul Wasson

I stopped making display cases because I found my old design to be too error prone to make it worthwhile.  However, I had an idea for a new design that I am very happy with.

Here is a prototype to show how it works.  I make 2 halves: one is the front and sides and the second is the back, top and bottom.


The 2 piece can then snap together in the back


And its done!


I like it because its simple and look cleaner than my old design.  It also has more give, so it shouldn't be an error prone as my earlier design.

I need to make a few refinement, but hopefully I'll be able to start selling them again soon.


 

Display Riser

posted Sep 30, 2018, 4:43 PM by Paul Wasson

One nice thing about the new laser is that is can cut wider designs.  So I made a new riser for displaying Megos.


This version is about 11" wide and 1 1/2" high.  Works well with 3 figures on Laser Mego Stands.


Shown here with some of the new Mego figures.  Being clear acrylic, the riser kind of disappears letting the figures stand out.

New laser cutter is working well

Got the new laser cutter set up over the weekend, and its working well.  Here is an action shot of it cutting out some Stands.


I still need to organize the workshop better, but I'm able to get work done.  The new laser has a larger cutting area which may open up some new possibilities.

The new laser cutter should be arriving on Friday!


Hopefully we will be back up and running this weekend.

Oooops

The laser cutter caught on fire this afternoon:


Luckily it was caught pretty early.   Everybody is safe and the house is fine but it is a little smoky inside.  I'm so glad I had a fire extinguisher nearby.

We will be ordering a new laser cutter on Monday.  This one was 10 years old, and I had been thinking of upgrading anyways, so its not all bad.

Some outstanding orders will be delayed while waiting on the new equipment.  Once I find out how long it will take, I will contact the affected customers.

Thanks for your patience.
