THE GANG ARE BACK TOGETHER...SORT OF!
So here's the story: While JAMES GONIS, MATT WEINHOLD, and Matt's wife, CARRIE, attended SAN DIEGO INTERNATIONAL COMIC CON 2018, LARRY STROTHE was called away on important business and was unable to attend. SHAWN SHERIDAN, just released from the hospital (and towing around an intravenous antibiotic tube), was able to make it down to San Diego with his wife GINA, but was only able to enjoy the Con from his hotel room. Using his trusty Comic Con press pass, James managed to book as our guest, MEGO TOYS expert, and owner of DR. MEGO'S REPROS... DR. MEGO! Luckily, we were able to convince DR. MEGO (aka PAUL CLARKE) to make his way up to Shawn's recuperation room for a fun and informative discussion about... THE WORLD OF MEGO!!!
Now, when we talk MEGO, we're talkin' about the groundbreaking toy company that brought us some of the most coveted action figures since the 1970's. MEGO gave us drooling nerds, high quality fabric clothed figures from such franchises as STAR TREK, PLANET OF THE APES, MARVEL & DC SUPERHEROES, THE WIZARD OF OZ, and many, many more! Oh, and they also brought us a little thing called, THE MICRONAUTS! And that's only scratching the surface.
And, if that were not enough, we've also recorded an extra wrap-around segment that includes some of Larry Strothe's fondest MEGO memories! Isn't it nice when Larry's memories are fond?
Whew! So there you have it! We've re-united the band, and as long as we can rely on modern medicine, it'll stay that way!
