Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Netflix Punisher Review

Frank Castle is the latest release from Mezco Toyz adaptations of the popular Marvel Netflix universe characters. Inspired by his appearance in season 2 of Daredevil, this figure is a more grounded take on the Punisher. While the figure itself looks great, it’s value is weakened by limited accessories and difficult posing. The Punisher’s own Netflix solo series may not be the best representation of the character from the comics, but Jon Bernthal’s performance definitely makes it hard to see anyone else in the role. Despite its shortcomings, this release is one to keep an eye out for. DESIGN 10/10 This...

Four Entries of the Mezco One:12 Collective Line That Aren’t Action Figures

Mezco’s One:12 Collective line is known for its high-end action figures. From their inaugural entry, the Dark Knight Returns Batman, up until some of their most recent releases such as Diabolik or Blade, the One:12 brand has equaled figures done with an eye toward the discerning collector that wants a step up from mass-market figures like Marvel Legends or DC Collectibles. While figures are what make up most of the line, Mezco has occasionally released other collectibles like vehicles or diorama pieces. Let’s take a look back at some of these unique entries in the One:12 history, and maybe...

Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Gomez: Street Edition Review

Photo: Calvin Le Overcoming most One: 12 fans’ doubts about the Gomez figure with the initial “Agent Edition” release, Mezco Toyz decided to double-down on the character fairly quickly with this “Street Edition” entry. Released as a San Diego Comic-Con 2019 exclusive, Street Gomez takes everything lovers of the initial iteration enjoyed and gives it a more casual, funky flavor. Let’s take a look. The packaging here isn’t as visually interesting as the second release of the Agent Edition that came with a comic book, unfortunately. It’s actually the exact same black box as the Toy Fair version, just with a...

Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Gomez: Agent Edition (w/ Comic) Review

When Mezco first hinted that they would be giving their mascot the One:12 Collective treatment, most fans and collectors balked. In this community, everyone has an opinion of what character should be released next. Giving people something they didn’t even ask for is a definite fast track to lots and lots of Internet griping. However, when the first Agent Gomez was released during Toy Fair, many saw the error of their ways. Gomez was a fantastic figure, and, most importantly, a lot of fun. This past week has seen the re-release of everyone’s favorite dapper cockroach, this time with...

Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Diabolik Review

DIABOLIK is the titular character of a popular Italian comic book series created in 1962 by sisters Angela and Luciana Giussani . I admit, I was unfamiliar with the character before Mezco Toyz brought him into the One:12 Collective. After doing some research and spending time with the figure, I can now understand why Diabolik gained so much popularity. A master thief who typically steals from criminals for his own benefit, Diabolik uses various gadgets and weapons to assist in his heists. For Mezco Toyz, Diabolik is an atypical foray into the world of pulp, and I hope they...

Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Daredevil – Vigilante Edition Review

The Devil of Hell’s Kitchen is my favorite Marvel character. Netflix’s Daredevil is proof of how engaging these comics and characters can be. I was very excited when Mezco Toyz announced that they would be bringing Charlie Cox’s character into its One:12 Collective line. And while there are a lot of things Mezco nailed with this figure, there are also a few unfortunate missteps. Here are my thoughts.. DESIGN: 9/10 This particular look for Daredevil is based off the characters initial costume from Season 1 of the series, which in itself is inspired by Frank Miller’s design. A similar costume is...
