Today I want to talk about Mezco’s new ONE:12 Collective line of figures. I first saw it displayed in February at the International Toy Fair in New York City. The first thing that strikes you is finally a 6″ scale line of figures that have 1/6th detailed clothing! The next detail that hits you is the sheer brilliance behind the articulation. These figures have over 32 points of articulation allowing for the capability of over 40,000 possible poses. That should satisfy anyone who wants to do more than just sit this figure on a shelf! Each ONE;12 figure will come with a base as well as accessories! Extra hands to allow different gripping of weapons as well as weapons to defend themselves! The line is starting with Batman and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I’ve been waiting for years for a Batman that looks badass as well as one that could be posed. I’m long past the age where I buy stuff to keep mint in package. If you buy it you should release it from it’s prison and allow it to be put out on display. These figures are meant to be played with!
I first came across Mezco years back when they first introduced their super popular and long lived line of Living Dead Dolls. I knew than that this company would be around long after many had disappeared and that is the case! Mezco makes quality products that not only sell out but are worth buying so you can enjoy them. This new line of ONE:12 Collective figures is ure to be a huge hit with fans who have been looking for a figure line that can be played with. I am certainly going to be looking forward to future releases! The DC Universe has a lot of characters that will fit very well into this line. Check out Mezco here as this Batman is still up for pre-order! Don’t miss your chance to get what looks like to me, in my opinion, as one of THE BEST Batman figures made to date! Check out the pictures!
Thanks for reading! Happy Chanukah to my Jewish friends and readers. Happy holidays (no matter what you celebrate) to everyone. That includes, Merry Christmas, Happy Festivus, Happy Quanza etc. It’s been a bumpy year for me and I’m hoping that 2015 will be a better year for me as well as all of you. To my good friends Andrew Gaughan, Glenn Harman, Doc Owen (where ever you are) thanks for being there. To all of my friends on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter I wish you all the same. Happy holidays to one and all. Thanks for allowing me to hang around all these years and report on toys. I still love it! I hope you do too.
