I didn't realize they were packaging the two mirror figures together. Very nice.

... and now most of the figures are not listed in the international site. I wasnt able to get them yet anyway, but looks like I can pay twice as much on eBay...!

Or get someone here to buy and ship to you?


I was on the target aint site, found each 8 was $20, two packs $40, I think Canadian... total with shipping, for the two pack was $90... doubling the price! eBay has a seller for $80 including shipping, but I asked her to direct ship, since eBay shipping goes east, and we both live on the west, not coast

Speaking of mego, has anyone ever seen this commercial and know if these toys were made? I didnt think anyone had made the d7!

That was the first time I remember seeing that commercial. Tarantino should use it as the basis for his Trek film.

 

How are the Mego figures selling through? The Trek figures in my area are gone.

At a super target in Cedar Rapids IA, they have a nice display of the mego toys... but they have already dropped the prices!

Now $24.99 for the mirror two pack and individual figures are only $12.99. They only have a single sulu left but a numbe r of checkovs. Since I got rid of all my AA Megos at about $17 ea I consider myself lucky... of course if your a speculator you could snap these up and see what they go for in a year or two... but they arent my bag... still if anyones looking for a better deal they are now on sale!

All the targets around Charlotte now have the lowered price. I still haven't decided if I want to pull the trigger in these yet.

I'm at a lot of different Targets a lot, so I've been keeping an eye on the Mego displays. They've been adding some new products. While I'm still not really interested in these it's nice to see them putting more stuff out and they're interesting to look at. Here's an update from over the past couple weeks.

Hmm, it might be too early to be real, but I saw the Romulan on eBay. Is it Really the same figure as the Original AND the Emce retro? I was hoping for a revised uniform, Atleast
Spock has a darker shirt than previous, it looks darker than even the BBT cosplay figures too.

I saw the Gorn the other day. I might get a Kirk and Spock if I run across them.

Ok, so who has seen what?

 

I got Chekov, Sulu and the Gorn.

 

But ebay shows me there was a Spock?

 

And has the Romulan Commander really been released?

All I saw was that one ebay auction.

There are at least a 1/2 dozen auctions up for the Roman now... so he must be out there... I suppose I should take a look locally... Romulans are always a good investment ;-)

Target had a sale on the Mego stuff last week,like 25% off. I picked up the Mirror Spock and Kirk set, it's pretty cool.Probably get a regular Spock, Romulan and maybe the Gorn too if I see them.

Being Canadian, I have eBay or the generosity of some of my contacts Here, but there is also Target International... I reached out to the community, and heard that Target prices were the best. I found a sale, a few weeks back, and hoped I could keep it by payday, no, the prices went back up! I looked, last night for new figures (Spock, Romulan, Gorn Or Mirror II), no luck, BUT, almost everything was on sale Again!
I called the number on my invoice, and will be credited the difference, when they get shipped out, YEAH
so, this sale is until Saturday, per their pricing model. I was not able to find out If the future figures will be sold here. They do have second waves of other series though. Are Uhura and Sulu in stores yet??

Oh, whats happening with Marty Abrams presents..., after this month? Wasnt it a three wave deal? Are they more readily available now?!?

Being from the UK, I have the same issue. Just looked on the site and there are 4 figures available, Sulu, Chekov and the Mirror Kirk & Spock set. Guess I'll have to keep an eye out on them.

At most Targets Mego has lost their endcap and been moved to a small section in the action figure isle. They did this right at the same time as the sale, which I suspect was to help reduce the inventory with the smaller space. I don't think this is necessarily a bad thing they just seem to be moving things around in preparation for Christmas. Also they have been adding a new toy section in addition to the regular one. It has some interactive areas (playhouses and large items) they're selling the power wheel and big stuff here as well as an expanded Playmobil and RC section. They seem to be going in a little further with toys probably as a way to capitalize on TRU closing. It'll be interesting to see if this section remains after the holidays, it was originally the book section. If they keep an expanded toy section they may have even more room for collectibles and such.

 

Also if anyone needs help getting stuff from Target I would be happy to help in anyway I can. I'm at Target all the time as there's one right outside my neighborhood and I stop at other ones while traveling for work.
