Dolly lovers rejoice! Repro 8" Megos from Figures Toy Company coming soon!
These dollies are currently available for pre-order with a scheduled release date of August 2013. $24.99 each - not a bad price considering what an original Mego version of any of these will set you back - unless you can luck out on a $5 Robin like I once did.
Go to their website - FiguresToyCompany.com - for more info!
