New Mego Head Adapter
Post date: Jul 27, 2018 5:28:03 AM
Its exciting times as Marty Abrams with help from Doc Mego and friends have re-launched Mego Corporation! New figures are starting to hit at Target stores across the United States.
I was lucky enough to get a new Action Jackson from Target. So the first thing I did when I got home was take off all his clothes and take is head off. (What can I say, I like to customize figures.) However, the new heads are not the same as the old figures. The old Mego bodies have a hole in the neck and the head has a plug. In the new Megos, its the opposite where the body has a peg and the head has a hole.
So to use the new heads on a different body, like the Cast-a-way Type-S body, an adapter is needed. So I made one.
Now the new bodies are excellent, sturdy and well constructed, so there is no need to swap bodies. However as a customizer, I like to have options, and the type-S body does have different points of articulation.
The new head comes off the body pretty easily if you use the boil-and-pop method. (Boil some water, hold the figure by the feet and dunk the head in the water for about 30 seconds, then pull the head off being careful not to burn yourself on the hot water.)
The adapter has nice snug fit in the head, and slips on easily
Once the adapter is on, it fits on the Type-S body like any other head.
