I was excited about the DC figs until I saw them. They just did nothing for me. Look just far too modern.
That's sort of been my feeling about the entire line. If you told me five years ago there'd be new Mego on the shelves, I would have lost my mind, but the majority of the figs look neither accurate enough nor nostalgic enough for me--they're some awkward inbetween. I think, had they been released by series (a bunch of Trek, horror, and superhero figs all at one time) I would have been more tempted. I could be persuaded to line a shelf with classic horror figs, but none of them are individually impressive enough to me to warrant buying one or two and hoping more come along in later waves.
I still want to love these. Hopefully, they will continue to be successful and, somewhere down the line, the figures will look more like something I need to have on my shelves.

Not too fond of the Mego Hammer Dracula; it just does not look like something the original Mego would have produced. Although I doubt it would ever happen, I would like to see figures based on some of Jack Webb's series such as Adam-12 and Emergency. In the 70s, LJN did make a small line of Emergency figures, but they were waayyy past ugly! I assumed they never obtained likeness rights, hence the reason the figures used those odd head sculpts.
