Mezco Toyz One:12 The Warriors Furies Box Set Figure Review

Mezco Toyz 
The Warriors/Furies Box Set Review
The Warriors is a late 70's gang based movie that has become a cult classic.  All of the New York gangs are called to a large meeting to listen to the King talk a lot of gang things. As the King preaches "Can you dig it!" one of the other gangs shoots and kills him and in the process blames The Warriors for killing him. This is the point where The Warriors have to make back to their home turf, fighting every gang in the city.  The Furies are an excellent 70's type gang wearing baseball uniforms and each having distinct face paint.  All of this leads to a nice scene of chasing and fighting with The Warriors winning out and getting away.  I was ecstatic when Mezco first announced the release of this set, and its living up to the hype.  Let's take a closer look at this four figure box set and if it can hold out in a gang fight!

Mezco Toyz One:12 18" King Kong Skull Island Figure Review

Mezco Toyz 18" King Kong
The latest release from Mezco Toyz is their 18" King Kong from the movie Kong: Skull Island.  I originally was able to see this figure at ToyFair in 2018 and was really impressed with what I saw. My opinion of the Kong: Skull Island movie, it was pretty  entertaining but it also had its flaws.  I loved that they used the Vietnam era for the movie and John C. Reilly was pretty hysterical as well.  In the end, we all wanted to see Kong and what the latest adaption of the monster would look like.  He was the highlight of the movie, and in my opinion he lived  up to the hype.  Let's take a closer look at this monster of a figure, and see how well it stands up with Mezco's regular 1:12 releases.

Mezco Toyz One:12 Cable Figure Review

Mezco Toyz Cable 
   Cable was sent to the future to save his life when he was infected with a future virus.  Sounds like a great opening to an excellent movie right?  Cable was one of my favorite characters to read about in my 1990's comic binge I did as a kid. I was so attracted to the weapons in comics, and Cable always carried large, unique, futuristic guns that just jumped off the page.  When Mezco first announced this figure, I was thrilled to see they gave Cable his proper arsenal.  Let's take a closer look at how well Mezco did executing a major character to so many people in the 90's.

Mezco Toyz Exclusive Lone Roach and Grub Figure Review

Mezco Toyz 
Lone Roach and Grub Review
Not too long ago,we saw our first glimpse of the Lone Roach and Grub in one of Mezco's awesome stop motion videos.  I want to take a moment and commend Mezco on upping their marketing game as they have been creating the one:12 line now for almost 5 years!  I appreciate this aspect of their releases as it really helps add the to the characters personality.  Most people were really blown away with the tiny Grub that comes with this figure, and for good reason.  When I first opened him up and was posing and playing with him, I got a lot of good ideas for pictures and customs. I'm excited to finally review this duo and see how they hold up to the other Gomez releases.

Mezco Toyz One:12 A Nightmare on Elm Street: Freddy Krueger Review

Mezco Toyz 
A Nightmare on Elm Street: Freddy Krueger
Horror is not my favorite genre of movie, but I do love myself a good horror movie action figure. I loved the One:12 Michael Myers and Jason Voorhees figures so it really isn't any surprise that I love the One:12 Freddy Krueger as well. He comes with a body that has great articulation which is the reason I think this figure is even better than the Michael Myers.
