Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective SDCC Exclusive X-Men Deadpool Review

Mezco Toyz SDCC Exclusive X-Men Deadpool
The "Merc with a Mouth" gets his X-Men suit, and it looks gooooood.  If you're a casual fan of Deadpool you are probably thinking where is the red and black suit?  Deadpool has worn a few outfits over his time with Marvel comics, and the blue and yellow spandex sure does fit snug.  I would say this color scheme probably isn't for everyone, but I really think it stands out and looks great on him!  Let's take a closer look at the SDCC 2017 Mezco Exclusive Deadpool!

Mezco Toyz Exclusive One:12 Collective Classic Punisher Figure Review

Mezco Toyz Exclusive Classic Punisher
How do you start a review for such an iconic character from my childhood...by explaining how this is the best Punisher figure ever made!  Mezco has released three different versions of the Punisher with much debate around which version is the best.  I currently own all three versions, and I believe they are unique in their own way depending on the time period you may have read the Punisher comics.  What separates the Classic version from the other two is it brings us that early, original Punisher look.  Let's jump into the review and see why this figure punishes all of the others!

Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Shazam Figure Review

Mezco Toyz Shazam 
Shazam, also known as Captain Marvel is a character first created in 1939!  Shazam actually comes from acronym of 6 Greek "immortal elders"- Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, and Mercury. Shazam is a boy named Billy Batson who by speaking the word Shazam transforms into a costume adult with superhuman strength, speed, flight, and other capabilities. Shazam is truly one of our first comic book super hero's, lets see how Mezco did translating that into a One:12 figure!

NECA Toys Arcade Appearance Aliens Xenomorph Warrior Review

NECA Toys Arcade Appearance Xeno Warrior
Regular readers of our website know that we are huge fans of the video game appearance style figures by NECA Toys. What started with a one off SDCC exclusive NES-style Jason Voorhees figure has blossomed into a wildly popular line for NECA. One of my favorite VGA figures up to this point was the blue and brown Dog Alien. This Warrior which is based off the 1990 arcade game is right up there with it in my mind. Let's take a closer look at what makes this figure so great.

Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Green Arrow Figure Review

Mezco Toyz Green Arrow 
I finally got my heads on the Mezco Green Arrow figure and I am very impressed. Much like Bruce Wayne, Oliver Queen doesn't have any super powers other than his smarts and his tech. I am really drawn towards these types of characters. Green Arrow has always been one of the classic characters in the DC Comics stable but has seen a boom in popularity in recent years due to the WB television series starring Stephen Amell. Mezco put a lot of thought into all of the details in this figure and it shows.

NECA Toys 3D 25th Anniversary Terminator 2 T-800 Review

NECA Toys T-800
The 25th anniversary of Terminator 2 is upon us and NECA has created the authentic look of Arnold from the first stages of the movie. Arnold has that slow walk, dropping the box of roses with a shotgun rising prepared for his first encounter with the T-1000.  At first sight you may not see any variance from the later version, but when he first encounters the biker at the bar his outfit is different. At this point in the movie the only damage the T-800 has taken is a cigar burn, and a poke to the chest and doesn't have much flesh damage. Let's take a closer look at the slick 25th Anniversary T-800.

ThreeA 2000AD Judge Dredd Figure Line Review

Judge Dredd and the Dark Judges
by ThreeA
There are many toy companies that produce great figures and maybe don't get the recognition they deserve.  I believe ThreeA is a company that falls into that category, but this is all going to quickly change.  They have created a Dredd line that makes a comic book fan like me really happy.  I recently purchased their Dredd, Death, Mortis, Fear, and RoboHunter figures and was pleasantly surprised with the quality and detail they show. With no exception, ThreeA Lawmaster bike is also a magnificent piece they have created for the Dredd line

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!
