Mezco Toyz One:12 Magneto Review

Mezco Toyz 
Magneto
I am a huge X-MEN fan so of course I was ecstatic to find out that Mezco was going to be making arguably the ultimate baddie in the X-MEN universe. I am extremely happy with how he turned out and I think they knocked him out of the park.

Mezco Toyz ToyFair 2020 Showcase Coverage

Mezco Toyz ToyFair 2020 Coverage
I got up at 5:15am on Saturday to catch the train around 7am to get to New York in time to check out the Mezco booth.  ToyFair was another amazing event, but Saturday morning I had Mezco on my mind from the minute I woke up.  Once I completed my trip and sat in line for my badge I was off to Mezco's booth.  Each year Mezco approaches the event a little different than they did the year before.  When 9am came the line outside the booth was packed and you could barely get in! Mezco was the talk of ToyFair which is no surprise as they tend to steal the show every year.  Once I was in the booth it was packed. I could barely move and everyone was getting hit with a barrage of Jansport backpacks. What was to come next was exciting. I just couldn't make my way to every spot in the booth due to the size of the crowd.

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!
