4/20/2021 - Silver Surfer
Finished Silver Surfer.
He is very shiny. You can see my reflected red hoodie in his chest.
Features laser cut surfboard, 3D printed head and feet and liberal use of the Molotow liquid chrome pen.
4/16/2021 - Ape-Astronaut
From "Escape from the Planet of the Apes", an ape-astronaut. Lets say Milo, since Mego is making a new Cornelius figure with hopefully a new head sculpt.
I will be selling the helmet soon if anybody want to make their own astro-ape.
4/15/2021 - Green Lantern Touch-Up
I like the new Green Lantern Mego figure, based on the John Stewart version of the character as seen here in the package:
But I thought I could tweak him to make him better. So I did the following:
colored in his original emblem black and added a new sticker emblem that was less blurry, more circular and better centered on his chest
cut his fingers from his left hand so he can hold his lantern
printed a more defined ring with a green outline and white details
sewed up the shoulder on his suit which had a loose seam
I'm pretty happy with the results:
03/25/2021 - New Feet
New to LaserMego, articulated feet!
Both are designed to work with the new Mego bodies (2018 or later). Each set include a pair of feet and the ankle pegs in a matching color and the robot feet also come with "ankle wings". The feet have a stiff, sturdy feel so you can pose your figure with ease.
Available on the new Boots and feet page.
03/11/2021 - 8" Female Time Traveler
I made an 8" female version of the Micronauts Time Traveler.
02/26/2021 - Franklin Richards
A quick kit-bash custom of Franklin Richards, son of Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Woman:
He started out as a Mego Chucky figure from Child's Play. I just used a new head and found a blue shirt and added the 4 1/2 emblem.
02/25/2021 - Chrome Mego
After using the Molotow liquid chrome pen to color Wonder Woman's bracelet, I tried it on the new silver Ultraman Mego body to try and make a chrome Mego for the Silver Surfer.
First I took all the pieces apart and chromed them each individually:
I then let them dry for 3 days. Afterwards the paint seems to dry well and didn't feel tacky, even on the PVC parts.
Then I tried to put it back together. Unfortunately I didn't think and put the left arm it hot water to soften up the plastic, forgetting that the chrome paint is water soluble. For the rest of the piece, I used a heat gun which worked much better.
I messed up the upper chest and back during the original application and the left arm during assembly. I now plan to give those pieces a second coat. I will design feet and a head for the Silver Surfer, since he doesn't have toes or ears. I plan to use the same chrome paint on those parts, so they should blend in well.
Overall, I'm pretty happy for my first attempt. I will have to try again to perfect the process.
02/25/2021 - New bracelets for Wonder Woman
Printed out some bracelets and then used a liquid chrome marker to paint them.
01/19/2021 - Legion of Superheroes council dais and podium
Custom Legion of Superheroes council dais and podium, all with chairs. Its all made of acrylic. I didn't have any LSH figures to show, so the Justice League is helping out. Could ask be made in different colors, like green for the Guardians on Oa.
01/14/2021 - More Dino Warriors
I was so happy with the first set of Dino Warriors that I ordered a second set of finger puppets.
Presenting Dino Warriors waves one and two!
01/12/2021 - Dino Warriors
Made from some dinosaur finger puppets found on Amazon.
One guy was missing an arm, so I designed a mace-hand for him.
The head and hands are attached using some 3D printed adapters I designed.

I went nuts today and made a whole rainbow of tigers. Only White Tiger is cannon. Mostly, I'm just showing off the leg wraps.
01/02/2021 - Leg Wrappings
I updated my White Tiger custom figure with plastic leg wrappings.
They are heat formed to fit the shape of the Mego leg. I plan to offer them in multiple colors.
