The big news out of Mezco Toyz this year was the introduction of their ‘Breaking Bad’ collectibles with product including figures, Mez-Itz, bobble heads, money clips, plush – they’re hitting it on all fronts. The figures look fantastic, you can see them in the gallery below.
‘Breaking Bad’ wasn’t the only new product on display. From Thundercats, Cheetara will be joining your other mega-scaled Thundercats figures, she features ball jointed hips for additional articulation. Living Dead Dolls will continue on – of the ones on display I love the ‘Psycho’ ones – just fantastic. Another standout was the 3 3/4″ scale Martian from Mars Attacks! That little guy looked great!

The mail bag was overflowing today! Funko sent a few new images for me to share with you spanning a few different popular licenses. Up first are two new additions to the Michael Jackson Pop! series – his look from the 1984 Grammy’s and his ‘Bad’ video attire. Both of these Pops! are due May 17th.
And from the land of the force come a new twist on Funko’s Blox figures – Blox Bobbles! These take the 2D-projected into 3D figures and add the fun of a bobble to them. This first batch of Star Was Blox Bobbles includes fan favorites Boba Fett, Darth Vader and a Stormtrooper. These figures can be yours May 31st.
Finally, as the 50th anniversary of the ‘Mars Attacks!’ trading cards really starts to roll – Funko is releasing a Blox figure of the martian. He will also be available May 31st. Ack ack!
