Yeah it's crazy. Personally it seems like Mega is a collector's brand trying to aim at a younger audience.Ashtalon wrote: ↑Sat Jul 21, 2018 12:48 amBefore Mattel's takeover of Mega, Mega used to have their own booth at SDCC. They unveiled the Call of Duty hovercraft there. The reps there were always nice too. I remember asking about some white Spartans from an at-the-time-upcoming exclusive set. The rep just gave me a couple of figures for free. i couldn't believe it. They had a trough full of parts which you would use to build whatever you wanted during the show and take the build with you. And on the last day of the show as the day wore on, they let people grab whatever loose bricks they wanted. Some people were just grabbing whatever they could stuff in pockets and bags. I got a ton of bricks that way. Good times.
Over the last few years, it seems there's been less and less of a Mega presence at SDCC. They used to give away exlusive bilind bag figures. Then those disappeared and they gave out some carded Monster High figures. Seems to me, Mega's just not given a budget for SDCC. Which is particulrly baffling, as the recent Heroes line would be something you want to show off at SDCC. With all the cross-brands getting representation. Seems like you could introduce a ton of people to the line at SDCC. Just so baffling.
