Toys “R” Us today revealed its lineup of exclusive figures and playthings, which will be available at Comic-Con International: San Diego next month. The retailer will provide convention goers with the opportunity to be among the first to purchase exclusive figures, figure packs, and play sets including Batman Classic TV Series Batgirl, from Mattel; G.I. Joe Desert Duel and My Little Pony Daring Do Dazzle, from Hasbro; and more.
Mezco Toyz is set to immortalize Bugs Bunny as part of a new licensing agreement, with a planned third quarter release date for product.
Since his debut on screens in Porky’s Hare Hunt in 1938, Bugs Bunny has appeared in more than 200 cartoons, as well as numerous films. He was also the first cartoon character to appear on a postage stamp and to have his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Mezco Toyz revealed more details about its One:12 Collective figure line at New York Comic Con last week. The line will include the popular comic book character Judge Dredd, as well as the version of Batman from the graphic novel, The Dark Knight Returns.
The Dark Knight Returns Batman will feature more than 30 points of articulation to go with real fabric clothing. Other details include:
- Four pairs of interchangeable hands
- One interchangeable boot with pistol holster
- One removable utility belt
- One pistol
- One grappling hook
- One alternate head
- One Bat-symbol display base
- One articulated figure stand for multiple dynamic figure poses
- One detachable cape-posing stand accessory
The figure, which ships on January 12, comes in a fifth panel window box with slip cover, and is available for pre-order at Mezco Toyz’ official site.
The Mez-Itz line will feature the likeness of the actors from the series such as Adam West and Burt Ward, famed for their portrayals as the dynamic duo, Batman and Robin.
Mezco’s Mez-Itz line will also debut the Batman Classic TV Series toys, including the Batmobile. While the Batmobile appeared throughout the Batman comic books, the iteration designed by George Barris for the classic TV series was radically different and quickly became a fan favorite. Batman and Robin both fit in the Mez-Itz Batmobile, as do most other Mez-Itz figures. [Read more...]
