DRONE Custom Figures Punisher Head Sculpts and Clothing Review

Drone_Custom_Figures
Punisher Work
Drone Customs on Instagram has been producing quality 1/12 scale items for over a year now.  He initially started out with a hooded Punisher and old man Bruce Wayne head sculpts that went over well with the 1/12 community.  He has since expanded making clothing for the Punisher as well as new head sculpts and wired capes for your One:12 action figures! So far I purchased the 1st edition Punisher head baklava and the classic blue Punisher suit and they are both awesome!  Today we take a closer look at his three new head sculpts and a specific Hydra Punisher T-shirt he created!

Mezco Toyz One:12 Jason Voorhees Friday the 13th Part 3 Figure Review

Mezco Toyz Jason Voorhees
I have never been a horror movie fan. My imagination takes what I see and runs with it which can be creepy at times.  I have never collected horror figures because I always prefer figures with weapons for movie or comic based characters.  NECA TOYS makes a lot of horror stuff, but since I am not a horror fan I never owned any figures from their horror line.  That brings us to Mezco which despite my lack of affinity for horror is causing me to slowly build up a detailed horror line that I don't mind using precious display space on.  I already have Micheal Myers and the Evil Dead 2 Ash figure so I am glad I was able to grab this Jason.  Let's discuss Jason from this casual horror fan's perspective on how well Mezco did with the figure.

Mezco Toyz One:12 Exclusive Purple Variant Catwoman Figure Review

Mezco Toyz Exclusive
Purple Catwoman
Catwoman has always been one of the classic badass villains of DC Comics and a formidable foe for the Caped Crusader. Way before Harley Quinn was even a thing Catwoman was holding it down representing strong female villains. The initial release of this figure was fantastic, but the purple on this one just pops. Plus, Mezco made sure to make some improvements which should make many people happy.

NECA, Storm Collectibles, Super7, and MORE!!!!
Last Saturday for the fifth consecutive year in a row Steve and I made our annual voyage up to the Javits Center for New York Toy Fair. It is always a long day with lots of work, but we always find a way to keep it fun.

Mezco Toyz 2019 Toy Fair Press Event

Mezco Toyz 2019 Toy Fair Press Event
This past weekend we had the pleasure of going to the 2019 New York Toy Fair. This was our fifth year in a row covering the event. Every year the Mezco Toyz press event is the highlight of Toy Fair. Not only do they pump out an exorbitant amount of new characters, but nobody takes better care of their guests than Mezco. Mezco gave out goody bags to all of the press in attendance. They included TWO new One:12 figures and other items as well. The new figures were Mezco's mascot, Gomez, and a Toy Fair exclusive Blade. More on those later!

Mezco Toyz One:12 Justice League Tactical Suit Batman Figure Review

Mezco Toyz Justice League Tactical Suit Batman
Batman is a character that over the years dons a ton of different suits and looks. I generally don't find any that  I don't like that much.  I am not a huge fan of the Justice League movie or Ben Affleck as Batman but this figure is really sharp and detailed.  The suit is designed for combat with super power foes, as Batman only has his skills and wit to defeat the evil he faces. I really love Batman and Mezco really does a great job giving us every single one of his looks!

Mezco Toyz Exclusive One:12 Popeye - Deluxe Sailor Edition Review

Mezco Toyz Deluxe Edition Popeye
I'm Popeye the Sailor Man. I'm Popeye the Sailor Man. I'm strong to the finich, cause I eats me spinach. I'm Popeye the Sailor Man.
Mezco already hit a home run with the original release of Popeye. It was an 'out of the box' character and the figure instantly became a favorite amongst collectors. I have heard many people go as far as to say it is THE figure of 2018.

With that being said Mezco had a lot to live up to, but they did not disappoint.

Mezco Toyz One:12 Evil Dead 2 Ash Williams Figure Review

Mezco Toyz Evil Dead 2 Ash Williams
It's 1987 and Evil Dead had already made its mark a few years earlier with Bruce Campbell playing Ash Williams, but this time it started out as a vacation.  After a demon poses as his girlfriend, Linda, he is forced to cut her head off and bury her in the woods. Pretty cool start to a movie, right? As the movie progresses characters come along, but the majority of the movie is plain nuts.  It's a great cult classic, and if you haven't seen it yet you should watch all three movies (Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness).  Now it's time to take a closer look at Ash and see how well Mezco did translating him into figure form.

Mezco Toyz One:12 Iron Man Figure Review

Mezco Toyz One:12 Iron Man 
Iron Man is easily one of Marvel's most popular characters at this given moment in time. Much of that is due to the Iron Man and Avengers films. Tony Stark is one cocky mofo, but he has the tech and the suit to back it up. Iron Man was a highly anticipated figure for us. He is unique in that the One:12 line prides itself on its soft goods, but this figure doesn't have any soft goods. With that said, they make up for that by making an extremely sturdy action made with metal parts, light up features, and lots of accessories.

Mezco Toyz One:12 Darkseid Figure Review

Mezco Toyz Darkseid
Darkseid starts at the top of any list when it comes to all time super villains.  He is the father of other villains (Orion, Kalibak, Grayven, and Grail) that all carry their own weight in the DC world of comics.  Darkseid is the ruler Apokolips but desires to conquer the universe and of course crush all free will. Darkseid has so many abilities that beating him takes an army of superheros fighting against him at full strength.  Does Mezco provide us with an ultimate version of Darkseid, or is this figure not worth the hype?

Mezco Toyz One:12 Popeye Figure Review

Mezco Toyz Popeye
Popeye the Sailor Man was one of the first cartoons I was introduced to as a child. I loved the goofiness of the show and how spinach gave him muscles to take on his challenges. First introduced in 1929, Popeye has become one of the most recognized cartoon characters of all time. I really liked the other characters such as Olive Oyl and Bluto as well. They really added to Popeye's character. Now we have an excellent figure from Mezco that a lot of people are calling the figure of the year.  Let's take a closer look at this sailor and see what we think about him.
