Last year PiercingMetal.com attended two special events held by the fine folks at Mezco Toyz with the first being their “Classic 1966 Batman” reveal and the second a “1st Ever Public Warehouse Sale”. These were great events and when the invitation came to peruse their 2014 Toy Fair offerings before the grand event, it was without hesitation that I headed to Long Island City to bring you all the advance visual scoop.
This Press Conference was originally set for Wednesday of this week but the horrendous weather kept people away and that made me glad to find it rescheduled for Thursday. They said that attendees would have needed a tauntaun to attend and my reply RSVP lined out how the PiercingMetal Imperial Walker was still in the shop at the time. So here we go with our findings. It was without question that Mezco Toyz were very excited about their “Sons Of Anarchy” license and all of the coolness that was going to come out because of it. They even worked out this super cool banner for the company that uses the properties design. Check it out below.
I’ll be keeping the narration brief and let the visuals of these awesome collectibles win you over and I shall begin with the brand spanking new “Sons Of Anarchy” action figures. The first ones you see are Clay and Jax in their prison attire. Orange is the New Black after all.
Street ready Jax and Clay are looking sharp as action figures and we spun them around with the help of the Mezco staff to show off just how awesome the back of their vests were. Dig those colors.
Just in case you feel that an outlaw biker gang brings out the cuddling in you, this need can be serviced by the plush editions of the “Sons Of Anarchy” characters.
Do you have a pool room? Downstairs bar? Rehearsal room? Or maybe just space on your wall where stuff like this would look awesome. There are a couple of sweet looking tin signs.
Do you have small items to stash? These “Sons Of Anarchy” stash boxes and stash jars are perfect for coins, buttons or whatever small things you have around and don’t want to lose sight of. There are also some sweet key rings and I think my favorite has to be the miniature leather vest.
Bobbleheads are a big deal and now have “Sons Of Anarchy” among their number. Be afraid.
This one blew me away and its nothing less than the “Breaking Bad” pink teddy bear. This was a frequent visual across the series and used to dramatic effect. If you have not yet seen this show, the complete series is on Netflix and is a strong recommendation.
Mezco proves that characters who cook meth CAN be cuddly and held close to your person with these “Breaking Bad” plush figures.
“Say his name”, it’s a dramatic looking Heisenberg (Walter White) action figure….
An assortment of differently outfitted Walter Whites are here for the choosing. Oh what am I saying you know that you want them all.
If your “Man Cave” or “Woman Cave” (to be completely fair) can use some cool sprucing up in terms of its seating areas, perhaps these throw pillows of “Sons Of Anarchy” and “Breaking Bad” characters will help you with that decorating concern.
Now to check out the “Breaking Bad” Bobbleheads…
Now it’s time to let the Horror take over and examine the latest series of the long running hit “Living Dead Dolls”. The line is the official record holder of being the “World’s Longest Continually Produced Series Of Horror Themed Collectible Dolls”. Whew, that is a mouthful but congratulations to this superb and spooky line. Let’s check out the latest series which is “Myths and Legends from around the World”…..
America’s Favorite Murderous Playmate
Cute as a bloody button and married with malevolent intent, the plush versions of Chucky and Tiffany from the “Bride Of Chucky” film.
Looked awesome but freaked me out it is “Mother” from the classic Alfred Hitchcock “Psycho” film.
Sometimes all you need are the classics. These Universal Monsters look great. I dig that Mummy.
Something tells me that this box is not going to keep anyone safe from “Chucky and Tiffany”
Tiffany looking lovely, err I mean “psychotic” in her “Living Dead Doll” edition.
I grew up on the classic 1960’s “Batman” television show so I was loving the series of Mezitz that presented not only the Caped Crusader to the world but a host of his most dastardly villains. I hope this comes as a set since I want it. I do still need to purchase that Batmobile as well. Don’t laugh because you know you want one as well.
These are the “Blind Boxes” and feature any number of the characters you see below. I think the idea is cool but I fear that I would be annoyed if I only got the same character again and again for some reason. I also think the Harley Quinn looks awesome as do the core members of the Justice League.
Now let’s look at some of the latest “South Park” offerings. Can you believe that the show has been airing since 1997? That is 17 seasons my friends and there are a lot of action figures that Mezco makes for you to own. I’ll trust you to leave any “Oh My God They Killed Kenny” jokes for other postings by the way.
Have you heard of or seen “Axe Cop” yet? It’s a whole bag of strange and that makes it the perfect property for our friends at Mezco to release. There are miniature action figures and some plush editions. Check them out because they were cool.
Mezco’s going to take over the world if this poster is sending any subliminal messages out.
Here is the 2014 Mezco Toyz Toy Fair Catalog. It will be given out at the event but I got mine today.
As visiting Press to their offices we each received a special limited edition “Axe Cop” figure who was a solid blue. He had a description card and of course his signature axe as a weapon. This little trinket will likely never leave his plastic bag sleeve. Yes I can be that collector 🙂
Well my friends that brings us to the end of our little advance look at what is coming out from Mezco Toyz this season and I hope you enjoyed it all. Remember to sign up for their official newsletter via the homepage which is linked below. Now the countdown to Toy Fair begins and I can hardly wait. Don’t worry you readers at home will get the full scoop as always.
