Mezco Toyz One:12 Moon Knight Review

Mezco Toyz Moon Knight 
I'm not a huge fan of the Moon Knight character, but I will say he's unique and his costume is sharp.  Marc Spector "Moon Knight" starts of when he's left to die in the desert.  He is discovered and saved by local people, where he was taken to a tomb and placed at the foot of a statue of the moon god.  He is later pronounced dead, but suddenly coming back to life saying Khonshu had brought him back to life! Let's take a closer look at the Superhero in all white, and see if he can withstand the Cheetos dust.

Mezco Toyz One:12 Pennywise IT Review

Mezco Toyz 
Pennywise
In 2017 a remake of Stephen King's IT was made starring the creepy demon Pennywise clown that terrorizes kids in a Maine town.  The story goes, every 27 years Pennywise awakens to bring terror against its prey in a form it fears the most.  Personally I would prefer this demon stay far away from me, and I certainly don't want to see it take the form of a spider.  Pennywise is a shape shifting clown that strikes fear into all of its prey, even as an adult I want nothing to do with him.  Mezco did an excellent job with this figure and all the details it needed to create a truly demonic character.

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.
