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!
Pros
  • Excellent black tight fitting suit with original skull design that highlights his body features
  • All three Punishers come with the same muscular body
  • Comes with three unique face sculpts
  • Gloves, boars, and web gear all come in the classic white look
Cons
  • Limited amount of weapons
  • Poor choice of weapons for such a unique character
Packaging
Punisher 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. This one in particular features a black and white Frank Castle with blood red background featuring the iconic Punisher skull.
Figure
If you like figures with great articulation and detail then Mezco is making the perfect figures for you.  Punisher is highly detailed from top to bottom. The body is well made and provides plenty of poses and looks for you to choose from.  I personally love the screaming portrait he comes with as it looks identical to a lot of the comics I read as a kid. His skull is highly accurate, his hands provide a lot of variation for holding weapons, and all of his parts can easily be swapped.  Although he doesn't come with a lot of weapons, he does get the revolver, shotgun and sniper rifle from the PX exclusive version.
Overall
I love the Punisher, he is my favorite comic book character, and this figure lives up to the love I have for him.  He has all of the distinct looks, and plenty of articulation to get every pose I would ever want. With all of the unique things Mezco has given all 3 versions of Punisher it's hard to find one that you won't like.  Since this is a limited release of 400 by Mezco, your best bet to pick one up is on eBay.
