Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Flash Figure Review

Mezco Toyz Flash 
DC Comics has no shortage of classic characters, but one of the coolest to me has always been Barry Allen...aka THE FLASH. He's always been a staple of DC Comics, but has recently seen a resurgence in popularity due to both the WB television show as well as the upcoming Justice League movie that is coming out. Mezco has done an amazing job of taking his classic look and giving it a subtle, modern, and realistic look.

Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Mutant Leader Review

Mezco Toyz Mutant Leader 
The leader of the Mutants gang is nasty, lethal, and brutal. He doesn't act like a civilized human being. The Mutant Leader actually beats Batman in hand to hand combat during their first encounter.  It's hard to imagine someone taking it to Batman (even an older Batman), and actually walking away from the fight.  Although there is more to the story and of course Batman gets his revenge! Let's take a closer look at Mezco's Mutant Leader figure!

Mezco Toyz Exclusive One:12 Collective Dredd and Lawmaster Set Review

Mezco Toyz Dredd and Lawmaster Set 
Who exactly is Judge Dredd?  Joseph Dredd is a future law officer in Mega-City One.  His role is to be a "street judge", to arrest, convict, sentence and (best of all) execute criminals. In Mega-City One, he is the top of all the Street Judges, just waiting for the chance to execute those who do not obey the law.  Dredd was once offered the job of Chief Justice, but refused the position to continue to be Judge, Jury, Executioner.  There are many layers to this character, and the foes he faces in the not too distant future. Dredd has no fear, and is a deadly force to any enemy that crosses his path.  Let's take a closer look at Mezco's exclusive Dredd and Lawmaster.

Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Modern Captain America Review

Mezco Toyz Captain America
  There are many versions out there of Captain America. Even though the classic look has always been my favorite I really enjoy the modern version of him as well.  The colors on the modern version are darker, and he doesn't have the wings coming out of his helmet. Instead, they are painted on the side.  There are slight variances between the classic and modern styles. Which one you prefer all depends on what your taste is! Let's take a closer look at Mezco's modern Captain America.

Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Joker Review

Mezco Toyz Joker
The Joker is such a unique character that has been presented in many different looks and with different weapons over the years.  Whether you are a fan of the movie, comic, or cartoon versions there is a Joker out there for you.  I can tend to be a little picky with certain characters (Joker being one of them) and decide to pass if he doesn't have the look I want.  Enter Mezco's version of the Joker with his slick, classic look...I decided he was the version I wanted! Let's take a closer look at Mezco's version of the classic Joker.

Mezco Toyz SDCC Exclusive One:12 Collective Captain America Review

Mezco Toyz Captain America
When it comes to characters I tend to lean towards the ones that carry guns.  Mezco's SDCC version of Captain America doesn't come with a gun, but he sure as hell packs a mean punch.  There are many versions out there of CAP, but the classic look has always been my favorite.  Even though Captain America doesn't come with a gun, but he has grenades and his signature shield to do his dirty work.  Let's take a closer look at a true icon from Marvel that Mezco gets just right.

New York Toy Fair 2017 Recap & Photo Gallery

New York Toy Fair 2017
Last Saturday we made the trek up for our third New York Toy Fair at the Javits Center. Those who go to Toy Far know that it is either snowing or extremely frigid and windy every year. This year was a pleasant exception with a mild and sunny day.

We saw all kinds of great stuff from all different toy companies. Our first appointment of the day was with Project Manager of Mezco Toyz, Pierre Kalenzaga. We spent most of the time discussing the amazing One:12 Collective line. We got to see in person all of the new figures they debuted at their media event that was held the week prior to Toy Fair. From talking with Pierre we know that Mezco is going to continue to branch out with this line. The addition of Popeye and the Dawn of the Dead figures are proof of that. Not only that, but most figures will get some sort of variants made. For example, we learned that Deadpool and Wolverine will both be getting two variants different from the versions of them that were already shown. The classic version of Punisher with white gloves and boots is still planned to be released in the future. We can't wait to see what else Mezco Toyz has in store for us. They are killing it with the One:12 Collective line.

Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Punisher Review

Mezco Toyz Punisher
Around this time last year images of the vast expansion of Mezco's One:12 Collective line were showing up.  Many great figures were shown, but their versions of The Punisher really caught my attention.  I am a huge Punisher fan and until recently there hasn't been a good toy version made of him.  After receiving the final version of the Punisher I realize Mezco was the company to finally make a great version of him!
