Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Nosferatu Review

Mezco Toyz 
Mezco surprised everyone when they announced that they would be doing a figure from the 1922 silent German film Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror which was the first vampire film. It's a classic character that has had a major influence on all other vampire films that have come out since then. I honestly don't love vampires or the horror genre in general, but this figure is so visually appealing that it has become one of my favorite Mezco figures which is a pleasant surprise.
  • 3 Head sculpts 
  • 6 Interchangeable hands
  • Coffin with lid
  • Lantern
  • 6 Rats
  • 8 Keys on a metal ring
  • There is nothing glaringly negative about the figure. The one thing that people might not like is that it comes in a bundle which makes it more expensive than a regular release. 

The figure itself is beautiful. He has great articulation, high quality soft goods and accessories, and stunning life-like head sculpts. In fact the head sculpts are my favorite part of the figure. The eyes catch the light just right and give it that creepy look. All of the accessories are very nice, but my next favorite part of the figure is the casket and the rats. That is a nice touch and something that we have not seen from any other Mezco figures yet. He also has a hat, keys, and a lantern. If you are a weapon fanatic then this might not be your favorite figure. However, I find the head sculpt and soft goods to be so good that it more than makes up for that.
Nosferatu is the grandfather of film vampires. Any fan of vampires or the horror genre in general are not going to want to pass up this figure. This figure came as a bundle. Some people like that and some don't. It includes a collectors metal lunch box style package and a t-shirt. Of course, when they include extra goodies it also raises the price. Is it worth it? I will let you be the judge of that. However, many people online have expressed that since these figures are already quite pricey for 1:12 scale figures that they would rather not have to pay for the extras. Regardless, if you bite the bullet and buy this figure you will be satisfied. This figure is an out of the box character, and it is clear Mezco put a lot of thought and effort into this one.

  1. I don't buy many One:12s anymore (the last one I grabbed may have been Ash) but I really considered this guy. He looks wonderful and is a nice update to the Silent Screamerz figure. Honestly, it was the higher price and all of the random stuff I didn't think I needed that kept me away. It just didn't seem like stuff that I'd be able to sell off, either.
