Added a new Mego to the list. It's got a ton of heads amd some tiny metal belt buckles, 9ft chain in 1/4" links, hats, clothes, parts. Some of this could be used for 1/12 or 6" scale and possibly 1/6 or 12". If you guys come up with any new ones or if Paint or anyone has began to do casting LMK so I can add you to the list.

If he's still doing them, just thought I'd let everybody know, 4LCC has some awesome 6" Star Wars head casts. For those who want their Star Wars figure to fit in scale with their ML DCUC MOTU etc. :D
