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.

  • Three excellent head sculpts
  • Five interchangeable hands including his chainsaw
  • Weapons are highly detailed and well made
  • Detailed harness for his boom stick
  • Book of the Dead (Necronomicon) 
  • Deadite severed hand and head 
  • The body is the basic Mezco body
  • Joints were very stiff and needed to be heated up to loosen them
Originally I was on the fence about this figure since  I am generally not a huge horror movie fan or collector of horror items.  After further thought, I decided to cave and see how much I really liked the figure.  I already knew that his Boom Stick was an awesome piece and I needed to have that at the very least.  His base body is what many refer to as the "Joker Body" which means its very basic with not as much articulation as some of the better bodies Mezco makes.  Putting the basic body asie, this is still a really well done figure.  His entire outfit is very detailed and accurate. It even has some blood scrapes on his flesh.  Once I loosened up his joints he moved with ease and could hold a good amount of poses. Ash comes with three different head sculpts that are all pretty distinct from each other, and that's something I really like. The Boom Stick and chainsaw are very detailed, are in good scale, and are well made accessories.  Mezco made sure to also include some Deadite parts and the Book of the Dead.
Ash isn't my favorite Mezco figure I have in my collection, but it's a very detailed figure that is fun to pose and play with. His soft goods are accurate and they even stitched his torn shirt to his pants so it stayed in place. After my long wait I am happy I decided to add him to my ever growing Mezco figure collection.  Each figure we get from them really drums up excitement to see everything they come with and how detailed they are. Mezco is a really hot line right now, check us out on twitter @cobrashadowjoes and let us know what you think about the company!
