Mezco has placed the LDD Series 16 Variants for pre-order on their site. They are limited to 300 sets and feature a Halloween inspired black and orange color scheme. Eleanor, Pumpkin, Mishka, Squeak and Isabel each wear a creepy mask and come with their own jack-o-lantern. The set will run $160 and it ships mid-October.
Mezco has announced that they will be releasing a movie roto-bust from the upcoming film - The Spirit. The bust of the resurrected, masked vigilante (The Spirit) sits atop a cityscape with his name emblazoned on the billboard below. The rotocast vinyl piece sports a ball jointed neck and waist for added poseability.
Mezco presents a new line of action figures based on the upcoming (December 2008) film - The Spirit. This first series contains 5 figures:
The Spirit: The resurrected, masked vigilante sports more than 19 points of articulation and comes with alternate fighting hands, a crowbar, a manhole cover, and one of his many pet cats.
The Octopus: This evil mastermind features over 13 points of articulation. Includes two big guns, a massive wrench, alternate hands and a removable hat.
Plaster Of Paris: This sultry villainess features 9 points of articulation, and comes with a short sword, alternate hand with mini daggers and display base.
Sand Seref: A jewel thief with dangerous curves features 13 points of articulation. Also included is her pistol and a trunk.
Pathos: One of the thugs of the Octopus, this henchman features 8 points of articulation, a machine gun and alternate hand.
Mezco has released the second in their series of stylized horror icons. Leatherface, from Texas Chainsaw Massacre, stands 9" tall with 13 points of articulation. The figure comes complete with chainsaw, bucket of glistening gore, bloody mallet, “bone” handle knife, removable apron and real cloth clothing.
Mezco Toyz continues their deluxe 9" figure format with The Warriors. Featuring forty points of articulation and highly detailed cloth outfit, these figures are sure to please fans of the cult classic film. The 1st figure of the series is the infamous Orphans Leader and will include a straight razor, alternate fighting hands, and action stand. Look for it to ship in early September.
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.
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.
If you're a fan of Hellboy, then you probably found your way to the Mezco Toyz booth. Mezco has the Hellboy II film license and they've put it to good use with a number of action figure based lines.
And as you can see above, they'll also be producing a 7" action figure line for the film The Spirit.
Mezco’s popular Hellboy 2: The Golden Army 7" line continues with a second series of figures
from the new summer blockbuster. The Wounded Hellboy and Hellboy (no coat version) are not pictured.
Goblin - featuring a highly detailed sculpture, this character comes with
a wagon with moveable wheels, a lantern, and two buckets.
Princess Nuala - The sister of the evil elf prince from series 1, Nuala
comes with a map cylinder, a book, and a piece of the elf king’s
With Hellboy 2 being released in theaters, Mezco is showing off more of their film accurate action figures. The Deluxe Angel Of Death Figure stands over 13" tall. From the mind of visionary director Guillermo del Toro, this hauntingly designed figure features an eyeless face, razor-sharp teeth, and poseable, eye-adorned wings that span approximately 10". Look for them to retail around $40.
Straight from the crib...he he he! This October, Mezco Toyz will be releasing their Gangsta Babies Series 1 lineup. I know that these are probably not for everyone, but I think they're pretty funny.

like him when he's cranky. Featuring a thermal shirt, t-shirt, dew rag,
ring, and pimped out pacifier necklace.
Benjino: This carrot-toped homey is holding the fort down. Featuring a
red bubble vest, football jersey, jeans, cassette-shaped ring and old

Shorties. Featuring a hoodie, skullcap, camo jacket and shorts. He
