Toy Fair 17: Marvel and DC One:12 dominate at Mezco

One of the best collector figure lines out there, the One:12 Collection continues to dominate at Mezco Toyz.

The Worlds Greatest Superheroes

With a line this all-encompassing, it’s kind of hard not to compare it to the classic Mego line. And yes, I know that One:12 is light years more advanced than Mego ever could have hoped to have been, but there are some similarities.

Mego was pretty incredible for it’s day, after all. And the toy-maker had both Marvel Comics and DC Comics licenses, which meant that the two lines were interchangeable. That’s always kind of big deal since it means that, on your shelf at least, Marvel and DC’s heroes and villains can share one universe. I thought that was neat when I was a kid, and I still think it’s neat now.

Both of those points are shared by One:12. Though, as I also said, One:12 is second to none in terms of detail and accessories. I mean, this line is freaking amazing.

We’ll have full-reviews up soon for a few of their offerings, but everything just ‘works’ in this line. The sculpts are great, the articulation is incredible, the clothing actually fits properly and doesn’t look silly, and the extras that you get with each figure are stunning.

If you can’t tell, I love it. Lots. Scroll down to see why in the gallery below.

Horror, Star Trek, and more

Not into superheroes? Well there’s still a whole mess of figures that were on display this weekend that you’ll probably like from Mezco. Between the Star Trek and Evil Dead 2 One:12 figures, and the long-running Living Dead Dolls, there’s bound to be something that should pique your interest.

Personally, that Ash and those Ghostbusters figures are heading to my collection… and probably that Kirk with his command chair too. How ’bout you?
