Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective MDX Blade Review

Mezco Toyz MDX Blade Review
The first version of Blade from Mezco has been considered one of their best releases to date.  We were lucky enough to get this MDX version of Blade that includes some unique pieces the original Blade did not come with.  He is outfitted with a new tactical vest as well as the same handgun leg harness that came with the Toy Fair exclusive Blade. I really like both of these additions along with two different head sculpts compared to the standard release. Let's take a closer look at Blade's details and dig into the pros and cons of Mezco's latest release.

Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Rumble Society Baron Bends Review

Mezco Toyz Rumble Society
Baron Bends 
Baron Bends is the latest Rumble Society release from Mezco Toyz, an original designed under water Aqua-Knight. Baron is an ancient warlord from the cosmic realm, who searches time and space on a quest with no endgame in sight. An interesting background for an original character, and I give Mezco credit for creating characters outside the DC/Marvel realm. I was able to check him out in person at ToyFair, and really enjoyed their setup and what I saw. Let's take a closer look at the Baron Bends bundle, and how it stands up to other Mezco releases.

Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Spider-Man Far From Home Figure Review

Mezco Toyz Spider-Man Far From Home
The newest movie versions of Spider-Man have been a huge hit with Marvel fans. I believe this is the 4th Spider-Man version Mezco has released in the similar red with black or blue highlighted suits.  I'm not counting the black PX version as this is a different suit and look all together.  I've always been a fan of the classic Spider-Man look and it was the first version Mezco released and I purchased.  What drew me into purchasing this version is the black and red suit along with some amazing accessories and head sculpts.  I'm very pleased with the Tom Holland head sculpt, Tony Stark glasses, and the perfect effect of a web mask that covers a figures face.  Now its time to take a closer look at the pros and cons of the latest release from Mezco Toyz.

Mezco Toyz One:12 Magneto Review

Mezco Toyz 
Magneto
I am a huge X-MEN fan so of course I was ecstatic to find out that Mezco was going to be making arguably the ultimate baddie in the X-MEN universe. I am extremely happy with how he turned out and I think they knocked him out of the park.

Mezco Toyz ToyFair 2020 Showcase Coverage

Mezco Toyz ToyFair 2020 Coverage
I got up at 5:15am on Saturday to catch the train around 7am to get to New York in time to check out the Mezco booth.  ToyFair was another amazing event, but Saturday morning I had Mezco on my mind from the minute I woke up.  Once I completed my trip and sat in line for my badge I was off to Mezco's booth.  Each year Mezco approaches the event a little different than they did the year before.  When 9am came the line outside the booth was packed and you could barely get in! Mezco was the talk of ToyFair which is no surprise as they tend to steal the show every year.  Once I was in the booth it was packed. I could barely move and everyone was getting hit with a barrage of Jansport backpacks. What was to come next was exciting. I just couldn't make my way to every spot in the booth due to the size of the crowd.

Mezco Toyz One:12 Moon Knight Review

Mezco Toyz Moon Knight 
I'm not a huge fan of the Moon Knight character, but I will say he's unique and his costume is sharp.  Marc Spector "Moon Knight" starts of when he's left to die in the desert.  He is discovered and saved by local people, where he was taken to a tomb and placed at the foot of a statue of the moon god.  He is later pronounced dead, but suddenly coming back to life saying Khonshu had brought him back to life! Let's take a closer look at the Superhero in all white, and see if he can withstand the Cheetos dust.

Mezco Toyz One:12 Pennywise IT Review

Mezco Toyz 
Pennywise
In 2017 a remake of Stephen King's IT was made starring the creepy demon Pennywise clown that terrorizes kids in a Maine town.  The story goes, every 27 years Pennywise awakens to bring terror against its prey in a form it fears the most.  Personally I would prefer this demon stay far away from me, and I certainly don't want to see it take the form of a spider.  Pennywise is a shape shifting clown that strikes fear into all of its prey, even as an adult I want nothing to do with him.  Mezco did an excellent job with this figure and all the details it needed to create a truly demonic character.

Mezco Toyz One:12 The Warriors Furies Box Set Figure Review

Mezco Toyz 
The Warriors/Furies Box Set Review
The Warriors is a late 70's gang based movie that has become a cult classic.  All of the New York gangs are called to a large meeting to listen to the King talk a lot of gang things. As the King preaches "Can you dig it!" one of the other gangs shoots and kills him and in the process blames The Warriors for killing him. This is the point where The Warriors have to make back to their home turf, fighting every gang in the city.  The Furies are an excellent 70's type gang wearing baseball uniforms and each having distinct face paint.  All of this leads to a nice scene of chasing and fighting with The Warriors winning out and getting away.  I was ecstatic when Mezco first announced the release of this set, and its living up to the hype.  Let's take a closer look at this four figure box set and if it can hold out in a gang fight!

Mezco Toyz One:12 18" King Kong Skull Island Figure Review

Mezco Toyz 18" King Kong
The latest release from Mezco Toyz is their 18" King Kong from the movie Kong: Skull Island.  I originally was able to see this figure at ToyFair in 2018 and was really impressed with what I saw. My opinion of the Kong: Skull Island movie, it was pretty  entertaining but it also had its flaws.  I loved that they used the Vietnam era for the movie and John C. Reilly was pretty hysterical as well.  In the end, we all wanted to see Kong and what the latest adaption of the monster would look like.  He was the highlight of the movie, and in my opinion he lived  up to the hype.  Let's take a closer look at this monster of a figure, and see how well it stands up with Mezco's regular 1:12 releases.
