I haven’t been this hyped for a Mezco One:12 figure since the Christopher Reeve Superman was announced last summer. That figure absolutely blew me away and turned my opinion around on the entire line. Now, another figure has been announced that might be even better: Brandon Lee as Eric Draven from the ’90s goth classic, The Crow.
When it comes to my passion for action figure collecting, you’d think Mezco’s One:12 Collective line would be a no-branier. It takes the intricate detail and soft goods stitching found on 12-inch Hot Toys figures and shrinks them down to my preferred scale, without losing any of the craftsmanship. But by and large, I missed the One:12 boat, focusing more on Marvel Legends, Star Wars Black Series, and the occasional S.H. Figuarts figure. And while I pre-ordered both Batman and Superman from, well, Batman v Superman, I never took them out of their (admittedly gorgeous) packaging. Well, Mezco’s just-released Superman from the 1978 film has changed all that.
