Mezco Announces X-Citing One: 12 Collective Wolverine Deluxe FigureJose Lopez
Following in the footsteps of companies like Hot Toys, who have lately been re-releasing or re-doing several of their older releases, Mezco Toyz has now applied the same winning formula to their own One:12 Collective line. During their recent MezcoCon, they teased a return to two of their most popular figures from the past: Classic Superman and Tiger Stripe Wolverine. Well, it looks like Wolvie has landed for pre-order first and Mezco is clearly not playing around.
Mezco Toyz has seen a meteroic rise in popularity since the launch of their One:12 Collective line of 1/12 scale figures back in 2015. A mix of Hasbro’s 6” Marvel Legends and Hot Toys’ cloth good Sixth Scale figures, the series has seen plenty of releases that quickly sold out, leaving new fans extremely disappointed about missing a coveted figure. One of those “holy grails” was the Marvel Comics’ Wolverine in his iconic tiger stripe costume, which was originally released as a Mezco Toyz Exclusive. Luckily for fans both new and old, he’s not only getting a re-release, but he’s getting quite the upgrade.
While this is definitely a remake of an earlier figure, I absolutely love that Mezco took the opportunity to also stealth release another version of the character. Since the Tiger Stripe suit is basically identical to Wolverine’s First Appearance outfit, collectors get additional portraits and accessories that allow them to easily swap between the two.
If that wasn’t enough, we get a bevy of claw effects, even more head sculpts for a variety of displays, and we get an insanely beautiful Sentinel diorama piece that has an LED light-up feature because, hey, why not throw the kitchen sink in there?
Mezco has outdone themselves with this remake, clearly making it stand out from the earlier release while giving us an option to make this not just a remake, but another iconic look for the character that can stand beside that earlier figure. Well-done, Mezco.
Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Wolverine – Deluxe Steel Box Edition is available for preorder now and is slated for a Q4 2021 release.
SNIKT! Wolverine claws his way to the top of the One:12 Collective.
The One:12 Collective Wolverine – Deluxe Steel Boxed Set is brimming with accessories, including a defeated light-up Sentinel that Wolverine can stand atop. Originally created to save humanity from mutants, this pile of scrap metal never stood a chance. The Sentinel’s eye is removable and can be held in Wolverine’s hand.
Recreate distinct looks from different eras! The iconic hero wears an X-Men issued suit with shoulder armor and includes two removable belts, one with interchangeable buckles. Wolverine features eight head portraits including two unmasked portraits and a battle-damaged portrait, as well as a range of interchangeable hands including both metal and bone clawed hands. Multiple slash FX are included and can be attached to all claw hands.
A mutant with an unstoppable healing power and adamantium metal claws, Wolverine’s no-nonsense attitude makes him one of the most ferocious heroes in the universe.
