Mezco Toyz Deals You In With The One: 12 Collective Gambit Pre-OrderJose Lopez
“Playin’ for keeps is still playin’, mon ami, so take a card…ANY CARD!”
If you were a X-Men fan in the 1990s, whether comic book or cartoon, odds are that you either wanted to be Gambit or you wanted to kiss him. The suave master thief stole the hearts of many a geek in his heyday and continues to be a popular character even now. Mezco’s One: 12 Collective line has just placed the Ragin’ Cajun up for pre-order, making a whole lot of those fans happy.
Teased back during Toy Fair of this year and fully revealed during San Diego Comic-Con, Gambit looks like an amazing action figure. Having seen this one in person during my trip to New York Comic-Con just days ago, I can attest to how impressive Mezco’s rendition of him truly is. I admittedly often have nitpicks about the One:12 design choices but I’m fully onboard with this release.
While the torso armor looks like it may take away from the upper body articulation that some feel is important to a gymnastic guy like Gambit, it is damn pretty. The rest of his black jump suit looks great, and they even incorporated his classic stylized boots which I would argue are just as important to his look as the trademark trench coat.
Gambit is a mutant member of the X-Men with the super power to charge inanimate objects with explosive kinetic energy. It’s nice to see that Mezco Toyz hasn’t ignored that part of the character and given his powers their due with some very fun accessories. Throwing in some uncharged playing cards (Gambit’s inanimate object of choice) is a welcome bonus.
Giving us a smirking alternate head dots the i’s for me. Remy Lebeau is nothing if not a charming rascal, and this head screams that crucial facet of his personality.
I’m all in on this release and am eager to add Gambit to my growing X-Men shelf alongside the likes of Cyclops, Cable, Wolverine and Magneto.
