Mezco Toyz One:12 Collective Fantastic Four First And Tiger Stripe-Wolverine Figure First Looks


Recommended Posts

Mezco for their Toy Fair reveals showed off for the first time their upcoming One:12 Collective Fantastic Four figures which they first hinted at this past summer during their online SDCC event. No other details other than this image have been revealed at this time. Stay-tuned for more details as they become available.

They look soooooo classic, usually not big fan of mezco, but they did them well, but you can see obvious photoshop use, so I better wait for an actual pics of figure to judge how good they are in reality.  If they are selling this as set it will be like 350-450 range for sure.

I feel like the Fantastic Four are the only figures I can get behind being made in this style since their costumes are meant to be a bit more baggy and less form-fitting than regular super hero costumes.

These look cool, but the invisible woman's head is off putting, and they clearly used photoshop...really interested in seeing real promo pic.

Yeah, Sue looks like she's mildly disgusted by something. Reed and Ben look excellent. What's the deal with flamed-on Johnny being in the blue uniform? Has there ever been a time when his uniform didn't "Flame on" with him?

THAT’S what was throwing me off. I sat there for so long wondering why he looked so weird. It’s such a clashing look.

They should have made Johnny Storm's uniform in shades of red and it would have looked right.  That's what the Marvel Legends have done when they make a Human Torch.  spacer.png

What?!! These look fantastic, maybe the Human Torch will come with a Johnny Storm head also and that's why the unflammed uniform. These look great. If anything could make me cough up money for One:12 figures these should.

Toy companies seem to have an oddly tough time making Human Torch figures that look right. They always want to make him clear, when he is is an opaque guy that is on fire. Whenever he is in his blue F4 uniform, they tend to want to make him look like he is just starting to "flame on," which really limits his display options. This figure looks like he's fully flamed-on, so the uniform should be flamed-on with him.

That's putting it lightly. I have yet to see even one totally accurate Human Torch figure from any company. They all seem to get only part if him right in any figure. They all end up being victims of stupid decision making. The two most frustration issues are that they either can't commit to doing a full flame-on or flame-off so they end up doing some nonsensical mid-flame garbage or the do something completely off the rails like Marvel Select and make him clear. When and where has he ever been portrayed as see through? This time Mezco does a doozy and gives him his pajamas on the outside. But what else should we have expected from One:12? If they're anything it's just a gimmicky cosplay line using the same buck most of the time and soft goods clothing. And over priced to boot. Not saying it's all junk, but plenty of companies do it much better and at a fraction of the cost.

The same is pretty much true for this Wolverine. There's nothing new here. Some face portrait tweaks (maybe) and a new outfit. Ninety dollars worth? I think not. They could actually probably drum up a lot more business if they just sold a blank body figure and made and sold kits with different head sculpts and costumes.

Not bashing fans of the line, but that's a lot of dough for such a small payoff. Ill stick with ML.

This is like making a Spider-Man figure that that is Peter Parker from the neck down instead of making two separate figures.

Fantastic Four nearing its 60th anniversary.....if only Marvel Legends would give us some waves dedicated to them. I've said it many times before, F4 is a treasure trove for action figures and action figure based toys. Vehicles, weapons, sets, allies, foes, uniforms.....its damned near endless...

Wolverine is awesome, I love their old Wolverine too, it was one of the better looking Mezco figure, this one seems more classic inspired and another win for Mezco,  as for Ghost Spider I'm not too into it, her head looks too oversized or maybe body is too small, hard to tell from these pics.
