Mega Miniatures R.I.P.



 
      During my 13 years (2001-2013) operating Mega Miniatures, I accumulating over 2,200 molds and offering some 1,700 figure products. Half of these various 25mm and 28mm ranges were originally produced by other companies such as Metal Magic Hobby Products Fantasy, late 1970s Archive, Grenadier Julie Guthrie Personalities, Alpha Forge, and Demon Blade Miniatures.

      The other half, were new pieces by various sculptors expanding upon existing lines or newly created pieces like our Animals range. The online store closed in October of 2013 with 95% of the molds sold to new owners. The only line I retained were some of the science fiction Salvage Crew figures and various unfinished projects that will eventually see the light of day. Currently, you can find some of the Salvage Crew science fiction figures at my new website www.JohnnyBorgCastings.com

      In recent years, I have not been able to devote my full attention to Mega Miniatures as I once did. Inevitably, Mega Miniatures was slated for the wrecking ball. My casting and mold equipment will remain in my possession for some time as I finish up projects beyond my closing date.

      Below is a list of most of the companies who purchased molds and production rights. Not all the molds have gone back into production as of this writing and a couple companies have since closed their doors.

  2. They are currently owned by an individual who lives in Alaska. As of yet, I don't believe he has put them back into production as he his working on a game that includes new sculptures too. He bought them in late 2013.

  3. I'm trying to find a Commandant Swag model. Any clues as to who might still produce him?
