Wayne in Winnipeg Posted September 24, 2007 Report Share Posted September 24, 2007 I guess this is my debut post here... Been enjoying the forums and the archives for a couple weeks now. I collect Mega, Jabo Classics and Contemporary marbles in the 1" size. One of my current projects is trying to assemble a complete "Master Set" of modern Mega 1" marbles. It's quite a task taking into account the number of color vaiants that many came in (for example I have 9 completely different "clearys") and they continue to add to the line (The "Lilac Catseye" just came out last year) Stuck at about 160, I have provided a couple people with my "Need" list and have been having trouble finding info on a fewer old Megas from (I'm guessing late 90's / early 00's) Anyone heard of or seen these in 1"? ("Dalmation", "Labyrinth", "Scorpion", "Bloody") The "Scorpions" look familar, but I don't have anything in my collection that looks quite like them. I wonder if some of these older marbles were actually even made in 1" This one "Frosty Rainbow" is another I have never seen. I have one "Flame" where the interior color is best described as blue. Have never seen any others. These again, look familar but I don't own any: Question: Is the "Owl" the same as a "Wicked Owl"? And can anyone post a pic of a 1" "Yellow Jacket"? (I have confused this with the "Bumblebee" for years) I used to frequent a site called "Marble Mansion" who had great pics / descriptions of many older Megas, but sadly the site has disappeared. Rainbow Turtle has been a great source of newer Megas and was able to land me some older ones a few years ago but my hunt has stalled. Mega collector Al R. has also been a big help. The list Al gave me has many more that I have not heard of or seen pics of. Al figures some of them might never have been done in 1" and that many may be old names or names for other markets. I will post the complete list next time. I'm from Winnipeg and pickings here are slim with virtually all my marbles being procured online (although I did find a Destroyer at a buck store though) Thanks to the guys at KCMC for hosting the great catalog pics from which I nicked the pics I used here. Anyone 1" Mega fanatics out there? Any links, contacts or info would be greatly appreciated. WiW (aka 300kph) Not a member here?
