Mezco's One:12 Collective is turning heads, particularly with collectors who have shunned the retro aesthetic of the Mego style, proclaiming their eternal hatred for figures in cloth outfits. Holding their Dark Knight Batman figures in my hands and pouring over every detail, I can wholeheartedly state... Mezco nailed it. That outfit fits Batman like a glove and doesn't hinder any articulation...which is no small feat as any company who has done soft goods on a toy will attest. In that one box, you'll find killer package art, open hands, closed fists, hands ready to launch Batarangs, a grapling hook, a hand gun to pop into a ankle holster on an alternate boot, a rifle, a closed utility belt, a base and translucent action stand...annnnd the oddest, bendiest contraption you've ever seen, specifically designed to pose JUST his cape! For those who railed "Why 70 bucks??!!"...now you know! Lots of love has gone into making the perfect toy from Frank Miller's ground breaking, game changing comic series. Again...Nailed It. We'll let the pics speak for themselves...
Now that we've got the gushing out of the way, let's take a look at the Mutant Leader figure set to battle Batman later this year...
Mezco reps stated they have rights to the entire DC Comics Universe, as well as the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice movie.
Here's Judge Dredd, also looking most badass. The Mezco crew are doing their best to make the Lawgiver bike a reality!
And nestled in the back of their One:12 Collective catalog, a taste of prospective licenses we may see in this format! I'll also point out that if Mezco put all those licenses in this book, then they already have the licenses...so I'll leave it to you to figure out what scales and formats they bought for them! Probably plush...probably Mez-Itz....but if we are wishing..new Space Ghost, Mightor and Herculoids figures would rule!
Plenty more to come!! Keep it locked in to Idle Hands for tons of Toy Fair 2015 coverage from around the world!
