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. 

  • Two excellent head sculpts
  • Seven different hands
  • Costume is well made and removable
  • Three interchangeable hats (Captain's, Sailor's, and Longshoreman's)
  • Three corncob pipes 
  • Three corncob pipes with smoke 
  • Two cans of spinach (one open and one closed)
  • Compass
  • Spy Glass
  • Duffel Bag
  • Navy Whites uniform
  • Peacoat
  • Fun, collector friendly tin packaging which is designed to look like a can of spinach
  • Had a bit of a small stain one of the legs

We love this Popeye just like we did with the original release. From head to toe Popeye is an excellent figure. He is packed with many accessories that allow you to pose him in many different ways which also gives you many different looks. The body itself seems to be sturdy and well-made, but the hips can be a little tight so be careful with them when you first open him.

The figure itself is very versatile and offers lots of features and options to produce a bunch of cool looks for him. I really like the forearm molds. I mean what is Popeye without big, beastly forearms? One of the things I look for when buying action figures is what accessories does it come with. The more, the better. With Popeye they give you multiples of the pipes in case you lose one which is great considering how small they are. All of his accessories fit well and don't slide around or fall off. I am floored at how great the quality is for the soft goods such as the peacoat, uniform, and various hats. Considering this is Mezco I really shouldn't be surprised.
At this point, Mezco has become synonymous with quality, versatility, and sturdiness.  Popeye provides an abundance of accessories and has such a unique look that he is an automatic buy for anyone that is a fan of Popeye (especially if you were unlucky enough to miss out on the initial release).
