Without an in-person Toy Fair New York (TFNY) to preview its slate of upcoming licensed figures, Mezco Toys is the latest pop culture collectibles manufacturer — following others such as Funko and Super7 — to schedule a virtual preview event.
As announced yesterday via Instagram and the Mezco newsletter, Mezco Toyz Fair will take place later this month, from Feb. 20-22. While there isn’t an official itinerary available for the event at this time, the promotional graphic promises reveals, exclusives, and giveaways.

This is not the first online fan event that Mezco has hosted during the COVID-19 pandemic, in place of its usual appearances at trade shows and fan conventions. Last July, the company put on Mezco Con, followed by Mezco Con Fall in October. These events replaced Comic-Con International: San Diego (SDCC) and New York Comic Con, respectively.
The company will reveal additional details and a full event schedule for Mezco Toyz Fair in the coming weeks.
