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! 


Pros
  • Shazam comes with 3 different excellent face sculpts. 
  • Highly pose able cape with wire.
  • Super articulated body with over 32 points of articulation.
  • Includes Mr Mind and Mr Atom.
  • Lighting Bolt that can be attached to his chest.
Cons
  • The fabric proportions on the uniform felt a little off to me, but still captures his look.
Packaging
Shazam comes in the standard Mezco box packaging with a nice piece of artwork on the inside of the box.  When you open the box he is displayed in window packaging revealing all that he comes with along with his stand.  Mezco's packaging is always a highlight with any figure you buy from them.

 
Figure
To no surprise, I am very pleased with how Shazam turned out.  I love the fact that Mezco includes 3 different face sculpts and Mr Mind and Atom.  I generally pay very close attention to the extras that are included with figures, and Mezco is leaving nothing out when they are creating these amazing figures.  I am having a very hard time deciding which face sculpt is my favorite, which is not a bad thing at all!
Overall
Impressed, just totally impressed with each new figure Mezco Toyz releases for the One:12 line.  Shazam is very easy to pose, capture different looks, and great accessories to play with. I really appreciate Mr Mind, and Mr Atom with this figure, it was definitely one of the things I was looking forward to.  His cape really allows for a lot of different looks, and impressed at just how detailed it is.  I have the 80's Super Powers version, and now I am very happy to have the Mezco Toyz version to sit on my Mezco shelf!
