I love this game, and I made a ton of custom modules and expansions for it, all included in my Custom Heroquest Trove!
Custom Rules and Mechanics
Revised Armory, US and UK items, plus New Stuff
Revised Spell Cards from Base Game & All Expansions
New Hero Classes: Clerics, Witches, Giants, and More
Epic Homebrew Campaign: The Arden Daredevils
I had no intention of buying any custom Megos, until this one kept making rounds on ebay. It was so cool, and so believably authentic, and WGSH is so lacking in supervillains, I just had to grab it — Victor Von Doom!
He’s an amazing piece of work, cobbled together with Mego parts and presumably parts from Marvel Legends toys. He’s very topheavy though, so I had trouble getting him to stand up in or out of the box at first, and I’m afraid to find out the hard way if his head is glued on or not (likely it is, since he has no neck compared to the other dolls.)
He really makes the Fantastic Four set feel more complete, and it’s a shame Mego didn’t produce him in the first place (or more villains in general).
I finally completed my custom Mego Punisher doll, and have thus added Frank Castle to my massive Mego trove.
I first ordered most of the parts from FTC, only to discover the body and head were atrociously bad, so I scrapped them in favor of a type 2 Joker body and a Scottie head – Star Trek’s Scottie head sculp has a nice resemblance to a generic “men’s adventure fiction” protagonist complete with no-nonsense scowl, and in the finished Punisher getup he really looks like Frank Castle.
The rifle, belt, boots, and bodysuit are also FTC, and look nice enough when fully assembled into the Punisher’s likeness, though again FTC lets me down: the suit has a hole in the backside, and the belt buckle split after only a little pressure. They’re holding together well enough though, so it’s working out so far.
The chest decal is especially nice and comes courtesy of nemo1635 on ebay, though it is slightly larger than expected and doesn’t fully cling to the chest as a result. But it also stays on really well (so far) and looks great on display.
The box was made by dengar on ebay, and looks and feels just like the sort of box Mego would have produced had they made another wave of Marvel characters. I imagine his reproductions are just as impressive.
I had The Doll Planet make me a special item: a Mego-style doll of Winter Agent Juno, from my dystopian thriller novel series of the same name!
Using a Dorothy head and a Zica “Yvonne” body, and a selection of other items from Mego reproduction companies, they’ve brought Juno into the third dimension. They even jacked up her right eye just like in the books.
This project forced me to come up with concrete sketches for the thermosuits worn by people in Juno’s world, which help protect them against the perpetual cold of nuclear winter. She also has a knife and a mead horn to make survival a bit easier.
Might have to produce other characters as well. Maybe the bad guys from Last of the Ghost Lions?
