We gave you a taste of Mezco's 2012 lineup in our Batman: The Dark Knight Rises rundown and a heaping dose of creepy in our Living Dead Dolls preview...and now...here's all the rest!! Dig it...
Shall we take this alphabetically?
Cinema of Fear Creepy Cuddlers : The Plush Doll Lineup includes Freddy, Jason, Billy the SAW puppet and Chucky! We'll also see Mini Plush Clip-Ons with the same four creepers.
DC Universe Mez-itz : Well it's mostly Mini Mez-itz for the time being..or so it seems. We've seen the 2 packs before with Batman & Joker, Superman & Darkseid, Catwoman & Wonder Woman, Batman Beyond & Cyborg, The Flash & Captain Cold and Dr. Fate & The Demon Etrigan. Keychains are also on the way with The Joker, Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman joining the Dark Knight and Dark Knight Rises crews. Speaking of Batman, expect a 2 inch black suited Batman with the Batwing and a grey suited Batman with the Batmobile. Finally there are the 6 inch with The Flash, Wonder Woman, The Joker, Superman and Batman.
Domo : Collectible figures are on the way! We know Team Mezco are awesomely geeky so expect something new and fun in the future. Visuals show a punk rocker, Monty Python-ish British gentleman and a luciadore. Keep an eye out for a bobblehead and wind-ups as well!
Earthworm Jim : 6 inch action figure on the way - Evildoers beware as Mezco brings the intergalactic hero Earthworm Jim to life as an articulated figure! Jim comes complete with a game accurate plasma blaster as well as his famous ultra-high-tech-indestructible-super-space-cyber-suit. The 6inch scale Earthworm Jim features 8 points of articulation. He comes complete not only with his plasma blaster, but with an alternate “bendy” unsuited worm body as well. Ships in july 2012. Mez is also dishing out a plush! Check out the pics HERE.
Little Big Planet : Series 4 Sackboy collectible figures are coming with some nice artistic designs, new facial expressions and characters including a cowboy, bunny, kung fu girl, cardboard robot and SATAN!!
Living Dead Dolls : You've seen Series 23, Hansel & Gretel, Rotten Sam & Sandy, Snow White & the Evil Stepmother, Chucky and a Universal Monsters Dracula. Now we get word of a bloody Toy Soldier and a second Universal Monster...FRANKENSTEIN!! You'll also see new mini figurines this year with Grace of the Grave, Schitzo, Damien, Walpurgis and Frozen Charlotte.
MARS ATTACKS!!! : Oh man...I love Mezco so much right now. The Mez will kick things off with an action figure of a standard Martian Soldier and a plush of the adorable little would be world conqueror. If these do well, I'm sure we'll see more so show your love with those pre-orders when the time comes!!
South Park : Not much new happening on this front. The license is practically an ever green, so Mez feels confident with keeping the 4 boys on the shelves and not take many further risks. There's the mini figure boxed set, the boys box set a Deluxe Talking Cartman and the one surprise..a Deluxe Talking Mr. Hankey..which seems to have been out before.
Spongebob Squarepants : Mezco takes a dip into the popular children's property with collectible figures including Mr. Krabs, Spogebob and Patrick for series 1 and a new Spongebob, Sandy and Squidward for series 2. Each figure features 7 pts of articulation. SpongeBob- Comes with display base, Krusty Krab hat, Krabby Patty, and spatula.
Patrick- SpongeBob’s best pal comes with a jellyfish, a jellyfishing net, and a display base.
Mr Krabbs- SpongeBob’s cranky boss comes complete with alternate $ eyes, a miniature secret recipe bottle, and a display base.
We'll also see a line of 4 inch figures and a Bobblehead Spongebob!
Thundercats : The Classic Mega Deluxe Scale Action Figure line continues with Mumm-Ra dropping soon and Panthro up next! Featuring 7 points of articulation this mega Panthro figure is superbly detailed, perfectly capturing not only the iconic look of Panthro as he appeared in the classic television series, but the essence of Panthro as he proudly wields his nunchucks in defense of his comrades. He comes complete with an alternate open-pose left hand and his signature chained fighting sticks.
Universal Monsters : Did you really think Mezco would get a dream license like Universal Monsters and JUST use it on Living Dead Dolls? Prepare for what appear to be stylized vinyl figures of the Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Mummy and Frankenstein as well as a Mega Deluxe Vinyl Frankenstein Figure! I...will start saving up for these NOW...and I want them all.
Zombie Creepy Cuddlers II : The cutest rotting squishables known to man are back with some new additions of a kitty, bunny and a dancing monkey!
