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...

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...

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...

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 Joker: Clown Prince of Crime Edition Review

THE CLOWN PRINCE OF CRIME is the latest Summer release from Mezco Toyz, and the second Joker in the One:12 Collective. This take on the character seems to be influenced by punk and rockabilly styles which is something we don't traditionally see from the character outside of the version of Joker we saw in the film Suicide Squad. Initially I was not a fan of the overall design because of the color and style choices but in hand the figure does look really great. While the figure does not come with a ton of accessories compared to other One:12...
