Mezco Toyz Reveals Summer Exclusive: Creature From the Black Lagoon 9inch Glow In The Dark Variant
New York- As the world of fandom collectively counts down to the July 18th start of San Diego Comic-Con International 2013, Mezco adds fuel to the flames of excitement by revealing the details of one of their Summer Exclusives: The Creature From the Black Lagoon 9inch Glow-In-The-Dark Variant figure.
Mezco’s award-winning design team journeyed deep into the unexplored depths of the Amazon jungle searching for fossils…instead they discovered The Creature! Mezco Toyz brings to life The Creature, from Universal’s sci-fi, horror gem, The Creature From The Black Lagoon.
This Creature variant is cast in Glow-In-The-Dark material. The phosphorescent properties of this formulation put past glow items to shame. Like the lure of the mysterious deep-sea angler fish, its powerful incandescence pierces the darkness of even the blackest lagoon.
This iconic scaled terror from the deep stands 9″ tall and captures the intricate detail of the pre-historic gill-man; from his mysterious amphibious eyes, to his claw tipped webbed hands. With 11 points of articulation he’ll be able to take out any scientist who dares to come between him and his true love.
The Creature is packaged in a full color, collector friendly window box perfect for display.
