Mezco Toyz Deals You In With The One: 12 Collective Gambit Pre-Order

"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...

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...

A Beginner’s Guide to Collecting Mezco’s One: 12 Collective

Everyone has to start somewhere, and collectors are no different. Whether you’re entering the hobby on the ground floor, or you’re sliding over from collecting something else, there can be a lot to catch up on so you’re not left behind. Mezco’s One: 12 Collective line started nearly five years ago, back in 2015. In that short amount of time, they have become one of the most popular 6” figure lines in the market. Capturing the interest of fans that wanted something more high-end than a Marvel Legend or scaled smaller and cheaper than a Hot Toys figure, Mezco...

Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Sovereign Knight: Batman Previews Exclusive Review

There is no lack of Batman in Mezco Toyz One: 12 Collective line.  Many collectors would argue that there need never be another Batman figure released, even. I do not count myself as one of those collectors, but I do admit to being a tad burned out on the Caped Crusader train. I have owned nearly every iteration of the Dark Knight that Mezco has ever released since the first one back in 2015. I also already own the Onyx Edition of this Sovereign Knight Batman, so that was yet another point against me having any excitement going into this release....

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...

It’s the End of Batman as Mezco One: 12 Collective Batman: Supreme Knight goes up for Pre-Order!

Mezco loves Batman.  Their One:12 Collective line is full of variations of him, and while it can sometimes feel a bit tiresome, we have to give credit where credit's due. Despite there being any number of costumes and iterations from the comics or the films that they could simply base their figures on (and they do), Mezco Toyz decided to do something different.  In 2017, they revealed the Ascending Knight Batman, the first in a trilogy of Batman action figures that would tell their own story of the Caped Crusader's career. Earlier this year, the Sovereign Knight Batman dropped, to much...

Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Commissioner Gordon and Bat-Signal Review

There are some supporting characters that can become so ingrained in a franchise that it can be difficult imagining said franchise without them. James Gordon definitely fits that bill, whether as Commissioner, detective or captain. The face of the Gotham City Police Department in the Batman mythos, Gordon finally gets the One:12 Collective treatment, ahead even of other, more obvious choices like Robin or Batgirl. Released as one of three San Diego Comic-Con 2019 exclusives, Gordon is packed in with another important icon from the Batman world, the Bat-Signal. Let’s take a look at both collectibles and find out...

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...
