Four Additional Mezco SDCC Exclusives Revealed

SDCC 2016 logoMezco started revealing their SDCC exclusives over the weekend and kept the ball rolling today with the reveal of four additional exclusives. Here they are along with their description’s from Mezco’s site.

One:12 Collective Armored Batman

Armored Batman has light up eyes — I think everyone expected that but still we are pretty damn proud of it. Also, components of his armor are cast in real metal, not die-cast metal, REAL metal.

Oh, and speaking of metal, he comes with his anti-Superman weapon of choice — a REAL metal kryptonite spear.

Batman is geared in his cloth outfit underneath his armor just as seen in the film. He includes 3 sets of hands and his heavy-duty grapple gun (different from his standard release version).

Living Dead Dolls Rain – Resurrection Series

From the funeral sky she descends, from the darkness she arrives. A fan favorite and grail doll to legions, this summer sees the Resurrection of Rain.

Continuing in our single Doll Resurrection series, Rain was an easy choice for us when it came time to develop another beloved character for this deluxe edition. Rain is such a personal doll that we wanted to stay true to the characters original concept, while still giving her an updated look. She comes cloaked in a simple gown with feathery wings of ghostly white. Upon her head sits a crown of thorns leaving marks of the pain she endured streaming down her forehead and crimson tears that leak from her glass-like eyes.

This is the first time any variation has been made of Rain. She is one of the most sought after Living Dead Dolls ever produced. Here is your chance to own her Resurrected. Don’t miss out!

Thundercats Phasing Tygra

Heeding the call of the Sword Of Omens, Tygra’s eyes flare as he sees the ThunderCats signal projected in the sky. He’s off, across the battlefield, bolas in hand. The Mutants think they have him. They out number him twenty-to-one and they all have weapons of stone and metal, all he has is his whip — and his wits. He jumps, seems to flicker in mid air, and then he’s gone from sight. Before they know what’s happening, an invisible assailant is dismantling their forces from within their midst. Moments later, the mutants are in a heap, with no clue what hit them. Tygra phases to visibility again and smirks.

We’re proud to present our convention exclusive phasing variant of Tygra, from our Mega Scale ThunderCats line.

One:12 Collective Classic Captain America

Another one of our Con Exclusives this year is the One:12 Classic Captain America figure and he has some cool features that will only be available with this version.

Let’s start with the classic color palette of his uniform: with bright, bold reds, whites, and blues and scalloped chest armor, there is no mistaking that this is the version of Captain America that is from days past.

Cap features a completely new head sculpt of his retro winged helmet and comes with an alternate unmasked head. He of course comes with his trusty shield (which some would argue defies the laws of physics), a boot knife which sheaths nicely in his, well…boot, a shield harness, and a bunch of different hands for posing, fighting, and throwing his star spangled disc.

Aside from all of that, this version comes with even more. There are strong micro magnets embedded in his upper gloves and harness that connect with a magnet in the underside of his shield. Most importantly, he comes in a deluxe round tin package with his shield insignia printed on the top. Open the tin case and you will find the super soldier transformation chamber where through the magic of lenticular animation you can see Steve Rogers change from scrawny weakling to heroically large proportions right before your eyes.

All of these exclusives will be available for pre-order starting June 8th 2016 and you can find them all right here. They will, of course, also be available at the show at the Mezco booth.

Mezco Reveals SDCC Exclusive Snarf Plush

SDCC 2016 logoWhen Mezco teased their SDCC exclusives, I messaged a friend joking the last item was a plush Snarf from Thundercats. This afternoon Mezco started revealing their SDCC items and started with….a plush Snarf from Thundercats.

From the description:

Originally the nursemaid to young Lion-O, Snarf became the comedic — yet fiercely loyal — sidekick of the ThunderCats as Lion-O grew older.

The Snarf plush stands a snarfing eight inches tall and comes with an informative hang tag. Huggable and soft, he is ready to snuggle and watch TV or stand sentry over a ThunderCats collection — while snarfing, of course.

You’ll be able to pre-order Snarf starting June 8th here and you’ll be able to pick him up at the Mezco booth at SDCC. Check him out below.
