  1. I love it! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jan 2016

    Good quality and love the articulation of the arms and legs. I think I'll buy more of these...

  2. In love with the Type S. All of 'em. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Nov 2015

    There, I said it. This is the figure I wanted when I first learned of the ReMego movement, and is the PERFECT companion body for Yvonne. The only possible gripe would be for higher limb articulation, and those upgrades are here, as well. What are you waiting for?

  3. Great for customs! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2015

    I bought a couple of these a few months back. All I can say is that they were better than I anticipated. I only used them with a Retro-Mego set, but the body construction (pop-out joints and screw-assembled torso) allows for a myriad of customizing options. I will definitely be buying more of these in the future.

  5. Amazing Design and Construction 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jun 2014

    If Mego was around today, I think this is how they would have done it. Outstanding product design and build. Quality materials. I've used the joint pieces alone on reconstruction builds. So many possibilities!!!
    Thank you for this!

  6. Go figure 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jun 2014

    Even the most die-hard Mego fan must admit: elastic-band articulation can be a bother. Legs won't hold a stance, arms won't cross, and if the bands shrink or snap they can wreck the body.

    Kudos to the S-Type team for seeing past nostalgia to the true strengths of the classic design. It's a tribute to their engineering that this body's increased poseability still looks authentic next to vintage figures, and the dimensions are a perfect fit for your old figures' clothes and heads.

    I only have two quibbles: the standard hands, like the EMCEs before them, have the thumb too close to the palm, making certain accessories difficult to hold. And the screws on the torso, at least on the units I've received, tend to have stripped heads, which can make them a chore to remove.

    But that's minor stuff. This is unquestionably the best retro body on the market, and your floppy vintage figs will thank you for the upgrade.

  7. Love the new 8inch body 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Apr 2014

    I like the new 8 inch Mego style Type S body.
    It is a vast improvement over the Mego Type 1 and Type 2 OEM bodies. I like the variety of hands that come with it!

    My only complaint is that there weren't any readily available colored hands at launch.
    Hopefully these will come soon.

    I plan once heads are released to make a set of customs with these bodies!

  9. Type S Body, A new era has begun for mego collectors 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Mar 2014

  10. Type "S" Body is the Absolute BEST Yet 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Mar 2014

    As both a Mego collector and customizer can assure you that this is the BEST Mego reproduction body ever produced. No rubber bands to hold limbs together, enhanced articulation and interchangeable limbs... Any other repro body wants to shout "Me too"??? (Hear nothing) That's what I thought...
