Background

Helboy II, which is currently in theaters, is based on the comic book by Mike Mignola.  Mezco Toyz, having the Hellboy film license, has produced (so far) two series of Hellboy II inspired action figures.  The second film introduces a new villain in Prince Nuada, the Elf Prince of the Underworld. And for purposes of this review…we’re going to take a look at him.

Packaging

While clamshell packaging is great if you want your toys to survive nuclear fallout, you essentially need to destroy it to get at your toy.  The figure is kept in place by a bevy of twist ties.  All of which is great if you’re going to leave it in there.  The design is a film-based theme on the front, while the back shows the Hellboy II Series 1 lineup.
