Mezco Toyz hosted their 2014 Sneak Preview Press Conference today in Long Island City, NY. and despite the snow, icy rain and lake-sized puddles of greyish slush on every corner, it was a success. Mezco is not only expanding existing the lines of its licensed products, such as Chucky and other horror lines, but has new licenses as well, like Axe Cop and, my personal favorite… the Sons of Anarchy!
The atmosphere was cool and relaxed as Mezco’s Special Projects Co-ordinator Mike Drake graciously answered questions, took part in interviews and filled us all in on the products and decision making behind their creation. I was impressed with amount of care and research that goes into each product creation. Mezco studied the actual burnt, one-eyed, pink stuffed bear of Breaking Bad fame at the Museum of the Moving Image in order to capture the texture and coloring for their replica, and sculptors paid careful attention to the Jax figures from S.O.A, after the overwhelming female response to the product’s announcement.
The whole line-up was nicely displayed, and Mezco was very accomadating to photography and video, so without further ado;
