Last February when Mezco Toyz revealed their One:12 Collective, their current flagship series and “labor of love”, we had speculated on the possibility of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice action figures.
Separately, and playing it close to the chest was the revelation that Mezco has received the preliminaries and concepts from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. There have not been any discussions on characters they’ll produce, but they do have the ability to create merchandise from the March 2016 film. – taken from our 2015 Mezco Toy Fair Preview.
After an appropriate tease of the One:12 Collective Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice figures on the Mezco blog, today we have received official word on the figures we have been hoping we’d get for nearly a year.
Here’s what Mezco had to say:
“The portrait sculpt has been expertly modeled to craft an exceptional screen-accurate likeness of acclaimed actor Henry Cavill. Built on a newly designed One:12 Collective body featuring over 38 points of articulation Superman is outfitted in an amazingly detailed and accurate costume. To match the on-screen creation of award winning designer Michael Wilkinson, the One:12 Collective Superman’s outfit has been specially created using state of the art techniques. The result is a stunning recreation of the films costume.”
We could not be more excited for the One:12 Collective Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice figures and it’s great that fans and collectors will get both Batman and the Man of Steel. Mezco have delivered an exceptional figure with the high-end, premium feel to it in a 1/12 scale (6 inches). Superman looks like one of, if not the most, screen accurate; capturing an authentic likeness of Henry Cavill. It should be pleasing to Superman fans to finally have a collectible 6 inch figure that retains the likeness in a way that truly rewards fans of the Henry Cavill’s portrayal. Current six inch and quarter scale figures, as of late, have just not gotten Cavill’s likeness right. Mezco has finally done it and we could only hope we’ll get to see him up close with New York Toy Fair coming up.
