Mezco Toyz Wants You To Chill Out With One:12 Collective Mr. Freeze Figure

Things are about to get pretty cold for the Caped Crusader with pre-orders now live for the new Mezco Toyz One: 12 Collective Mr. Freeze action figure. Glimpsed at the Mezco display at both New York Comic-Con and the New York Toy Fair recently, the villain looks mighty imposing. Victor Fries has been a member of Batman's rogues’ gallery for decades, since first appearing in Batman #121 all the way back in 1959. First introduced as Mr. Zero, the character really gained popularity after his origin was revamped in the Batman: The Animated Series television show that aired during the 1990s. Given...

Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective – Magneto Review

You can't have more and more X-Men figures in your toy line without a worthy foe to face off with them. Mezco Toyz has obviously realized this fact and finally released the mutants' ultimate baddie, Magneto. We have the sometime antihero here in his regular release, while a Previews Exclusive is set to follow sometime in the next few months. Let's take a look. Background Magneto very likely needs no introduction. Created as a somewhat one-note bad guy for the X-Men to battle and for their mentor, Professor X, to morally debate with, the character has been around since the...

By Crom, Mezco Toyz Has Welcomed Conan Into The One: 12 Collective!

Mezco Toyz Conan the Barbarian One:12 Collective Figure is available for Pre-Order now @ ToyOrigin.com for $89.99 USD and is slated to drop Quarter 3 of 2020. Enjoy 5% Reward Points (cash back) with your Pre-Order! Most action figure collectors and casual fantasy readers of a certain age immediately think of Arnold Schwarzenegger when they hear the name “Conan”. However, for diehard fans, two names will instead come to mind: the character’s creator, author Robert E. Howard, and famed fantasy artist Frank Frazetta.  Frazetta, in seven paintings of the Cimmerian adventurer, utterly defined the Conan we picture in our mind’s eye,...

Mezco Toyz Stealth Drops New Pre-Order for Spider-Man Stealth Suit Figure!

I did not see Night Monkey coming. After Mezco did a surprise reveal of the One: 12 Collective Far From Home Upgraded Suit Spider-Man during San Diego Comic-Con last year, I just assumed that a Stealth Suit pre-order would follow closely behind. However, as summer became fall and fall became Winter, my confidence faded bit by bit. By the time we reached Thanksgiving, NYCC in the rearview mirror, I was instead convinced of the opposite opinion, in no way expecting a Stealth Suit to materialize at all. Well, Mezco fooled us all. They waited until just a month or two before their...

Mezco Announces The New One:12 Collective Popeye and Bluto: Stormy Seas Ahead 2-Pack!

If you had told most collectors that one of the best action figures of 2018 was going to be a Popeye figure, they'd have laughed you out of whatever Facebook group they were trolling in. Despite all odds, though, Mezco gave the One:12 Collective treatment to the old Sailor Man and it was indeed a resounding success. Mixing just the right amounts of artistic interpretation and real-world aesthetic gave their Popeye figure a winning recipe. After following up with a Mezco Direct Exclusive version that came in some of the most clever packaging ever, it looks like Mezco Toyz...

The End Gets Even More Supreme With Mezco’s New Previews Exclusive Supreme Knight: Batman

Mezco Toyz finale to their Batman trilogy of action figures has already seen its regular release go up for pre-order not long ago. Following hot on the heels of that initial announcement, their Previews Exclusive take has arrived with a palette swap and a few differences with the many accessories.  Representing the Dark Knight in his golden years, the PX Supreme Knight goes with the blue, gold and yellow color motif this time around. Evocative of his more Caped Crusader-style look, Batman leans into that vibe even more with the longer-eared cowl. Rounding out the costume changes is the oval...

Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Green Lantern John Stewart Review

When Mezco Toyz announced a Green Lantern would be joining the One:12 Collective line, I was slightly surprised that they went with John Stewart at the time. Hal Jordan was the more obvious choice, I thought. (They'd end up soliciting him as a Previews Exclusive release soon after John, anyway.) Then I remembered John's starring role as the resident Green Lantern of the Justice League Unlimited cartoon and it all clicked for me. For a recent generation of fans, John is their Green Lantern. He was just as obvious a choice as Hal; it just depends on when you became...
