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.

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.
