Mezco Toyz 2019 SDCC Moon Knight Crescent Edition Review

Mezco Toyz 
SDCC Moon Knight Crescent Edition 
There are so many unique characters in the Marvel universe and Moon Knight is no exception.  He always comes with an asterisk saying "He's Marvel's version of Batman" but I don't see him that way. I will say I prefer Batman's suit over Moon Knight's suit and probably prefer Batman's back story over his.  During a full moon, Moon Knight is at his strongest with super speed, invisibility and allowing Marc Spector to do his thing.

Pros
  • Highly Articulated body with over 32 points
  • Two detailed head portraits
  • Eight pairs of interchangeable hands
  • Two different style white hoods
  • Good accurate assortment of blades, nunchuks and staff
Cons
  • The suit can hinder articulation in the shoulder areas
Figure
The first thing you notice with Moon Knight are the details on his suit.  Mezco put a lot of thought and detail during the execution of this figure and you can tell with the final result.  The only issue I have with the suit is the armpit areas bunch up and make it a little difficult to get full range of motion when posing.  I really like the fact he comes with two face sculpts and also two different hoods to really allow you to get different looks.  The one thing that really sets Moon Knight off as a figure is his unique character specific weapons.  The weapons are highly detailed, great quality and really help capture that sick look he carries. 
Overall
Moon Knight really meets the expectations you have from a 1:12 figure from Mezco.  A highly detailed suit, great interchangeable options as well as accurate character weapons.  As far as the figure goes, he is what I would call a well balanced release with figure and weapons combination from Mezco. Moon Knight is a awesome, but out of all the things with this figure, I really enjoyed his weapons the most.
