Mezco has released pics of the new One:12 Collective Punisher figure, let’s take a look.
That is a damn fine Frank Castle. And as usual the amount of detail, pose-ability, and accessories are almost obscene.
You all know who Frank Castle is, I mean even if you’re not a comic book reader, c’mon there have been like what 3 movies? 7? 9000? Thomas Jane ring a bell? No? That guy from the Walking Dead is playing him in the new season of Daredevil? No? Sheesh thought I was out of the loop.
The Punisher, or Frank Castle, has been around since 1974, originally appearing in issue #129 of Amazing Spider-Man volume 1. Frank Castle is a one man army, fighting a war against crime to avenge the deaths of his family, who were killed in a mob shootout. His methods are extreme and for most of his time in comics those heroes who aren’t on his hitlist for whatever reason (usually for getting in his way) are not fans of how he wages that war.
So essentially he’s the biggest, baddest, meanest non-mutant, non-meta, non-super of all the “superheros”. No matter what you may think of his mission or his methods you have to admit the guys got stones.
