    Sterling, we saw that news too! We have it on Ant-Man post! Hopefully, they will release a Black Series Ant-Man helmet or at least announce it at Toy Fair.

    No clue, but HASBRO has a strong relationship with Disney. Hopefully, they’ll do something in the Marvel Legends/ Black Series style.

    Great questions! This is something we like to do as well. We ask these questions when we can and get answers for you. Sadly, Hasbro is not one to respond. NECA and MEZCO, on the other hand, are very prompt.

    Hopefully, either a Boba Fett helmet or a Mandalorian helmet (if that one happens, expect to see it in the fall).

    The numbers on all Mego figures are on the front packaging (gold sticker). Look at the Romulan Commander (above) as well as Farah, Joe Namath, and Ali. If it says “endorsed” it was a promo copy or sold at a convention. Mego’s bought at Target are numbered to 10,000.
