Toy Fair 2016: Mezco Marvel ONE:12 Collective Figures!

Let there be absolutely no doubt about it: we are living in a golden age for Marvel figures and collectibles. And while the market has been starting to get a wee bit crowded over the past year or two, another company is about to enter the fray. At their pre-New York Toy Fair 2016 press event today, Mezco Toyz revealed the first seven figures that they’ll be releasing in their all-new mixed media Marvel ONE:12 Collective figures line: Captain America, Daredevil and the Punisher!

Toy Fair 2016 Mezco One12 Collective Modern Captain America Figure

Hot Toys made me fall in love with 1/6 (sixth scale) figures a few years back, and ever since, my collection has been pretty much exploding with 12″ figure goodness. But as beautiful as 1:6 scale figures are, not every collector has the space–or the money–to purchase a ton of figures of that size.

For those who can’t afford sixth scale collectibles (or just want to try something smaller), however, Mezco Toyz has a real treat in store for you this year, as their highly-successful line of ONE:12 Collective 6″ figures will be expanding to include some of the biggest stars of the Marvel Comics universe!

One12 Collective Black Daredevil Figure Toy Fair 2016Basically, the concept of ONE:12 Collective is to bring the quality and style of 1/6 figures to the 1/12 scale. These figures are mixed-media, meaning that they’re a combination of plastic and soft goods costumes.

Figuarts figures–not a bad line to be compared to at all!).

If I had to pick early favorites from these reveals, they would be the Black Costume Daredevil (from the classic “Shadowland” story) and the classic Punisher. Both of these figures look downright incredible, and far superior to any other 1/12 scale toy of these versions of the characters that we’ve seen before. I’m definitely excited to try this line out later this year!

Thus far, the non-Marvel ONE:12 Collective action figures that Mezco Toyz has released have cost $60-$75 each. With the Marvel license likely being an expensive one and these figures looking as impressive as they do, I’d be very surprised to see these Punisher, Captain America and Daredevil figures priced below the $69.99 mark, but we won’t know anything for sure until the first figures (the two versions of Captain America) go up for order.

What are your early feelings and impressions about the newest line of 6″ Marvel figures on the block? Are you making plans to add any (or all!) of these newly-revealed Mezco Toyz Marvel figures to your collections?

Toy Fair 2016: Mezco Marvel ONE:12 Collective Figures! — 6 Comments

  1. I’m incredible excited to see these. Never expected we’d get Marvel One:12, at least not so soon, but they look great. I don’t have much of a personal connection to Punisher, but he’s easily the stand out of the bunch. I’m conflicted on which I like most. The portrait on the classic body looks amazing, but the modern’s body with the armor, pouches, and dirt detail really keeps my attention.

    Looking forward to seeing this line develope.

  2. Not gonna lie, those Captain Americas are REALLY EXCITING, I’m just wondering which I should plunk the cash down for first. (Although Punisher is… not who I’d have picked for the inaugural wave.) I just hope they have the license to do non-MCU characters- I’d love to see Deadpool in this line.

    My shortlist for this line would have to include Hawkeye (with modern and classic versions), Captain Marvel, Deadpool, Ms. Marvel, and Wasp. They could do like five billion Wasp figures in versions of all her different outfits over the years, and I’d buy every single one.

  3. Well I think they look great and I’m going to try them out ” and the price line is definitely good I’ll get all 8 of them they look awesome!!!

  4. I hope the next line they will include villains venom,carnage,green goblin and hobgoblin.

  5. I grew up not liking the classic Cap designs, if I’m being honest, but these figures look absolutely incredible and are very well and uniquely designed. Wish the chin-straps were like the movie Cap suits, but I can’t complain.
