    Because there have been some folks on the forums clamoring for some Megas XLR merchandise, I thought you all might like to know that it is now available. Support the series, support Toonami, check out the Megas XLR section on Cartoon Network's website:

    What do you all think of the items available so far?

    Neat but the action figure looks less than superbly made if ya know what I mean.

    I did notice something MORE interesting though... the Toonami banner has returned to it's old slot and now the Miguzi one is at the bottom of the page. I wonder why...

    At least it is only $9.99.

    As for the banner, it looks like we both noticed the banner about the same time, heh.

    Ah, I'm not exactly up on action figure pricing. I wonder if it will ever be in stores?

    Probably not...


    I would get a Megas figure if it had some other redeeming value like removable car head or missle fists

    if it was a model lack of action feature would be understandable

    but it would have to be a decent size
    tiny robots arn't that impressive unless they can work with or form bigger robots...

    The Jack toys were in stores (specialy stores and Game Stop) so I assume MEGAS will eventualy. Shoot... they'll probably strike a deal to get them highlighted at Hot Topic or something.

    The Megas figure looks cool.. I'd be interested in getting that.

    It has a nice design for a figure.. $10 is pretty cheap. I like cheap.

    Thanks for the heads up Chris.

    Although I'm not too happy about the bland poster. :( Also that action figure looks OK, but its missing those gal silhouettes on Megas' backside. Its kinda strange that the Youth shirt looks better than the Adult one. Heheh.

    I like the poster, but I think half of it is just because it mentions Toonami.

    Hmm, still I dunno.

    I found this pic used in a news article for our local Newspaper:

    Honolulu Starbulletin Friday, April 30, 2004


    [​IMG]


    Most likely that's a pic released to various newspapers in a press kit or something (?) like that. But still, if they modified the above pic to make that poster, then heck yeah I would buy it.​

    I already have 2 of the action figures. One still in the box, and one on top of my computer to play with.

    :D :D :D

    Nothing impressed me except for the action figure. Still I would rather have a Megas 14" statue.

    The poster's OK (though a wall scroll would be better), while the T-Shirts suck.

    I'm still waiting on my MEGAS Model, CN! Strike a deal with Bandai already!

    CN is selling one Megas t-shirt that only goes up to Large in size and the other one only goes up to a X-Large in size.

    With the main character of Megas XLR being a 3X Large easy, I would think CN would know better. :sad:

    They'll all nice.

    The action figure reminds me of those "Gundam Wing" make-it-yourself action figures.

    Interesting...very interesting. Well, i won't be getting any of that since I'm not as big of a fan of Meg as most of you.
