Our Last Goodbye

I posted news of this blog’s demise (not ‘greatly exaggerated’) last night, but I wish to post a coda.

It was important to me that I document the entire journey of making this book, and this blog was a wonderful outlet for that endeavor. It was a catharsis for me, and a whole helluva lot of fun.

Upon returning from my recent vacation, I decided to shutter the blog and shift my focus onto new and exciting projects. I did so last night.

I came home tonight to find my very first Royalty Payment for the book (!)… a hefty little check. This coincidence was not lost on me, confirming my decision to move on. I now feel the book is finally DONE, and I finally know the book was a success.

Before I go, I want to acknowledge those who made this journey so much fun.

My deepest appreciation goes out to all who:

  • Purchased the book
  • Contributed to the book and/or the blog
  • Took the time to write to me about Mego
  • Continue to support my favorite sites: Mego Museum, Plaid Stallions and The Aquaman Shrine.
  • Continue to love and appreciate Mego (both the company and their toys)

In parting, I’ll post the final few “What In The (Mego) World?” contests I had already prepared for the coming months. Perhaps you know the answers, perhaps not. Regardless, I thank you for joining me on this roller coaster ride over the past two years!

Here are the final contests, in order:

calling to his dog sitting in the audience.

Best to all of you,
