You might know Mezco from its diverse line of figures ranging from Axe Cop and the DC Universe to TV shows like Sons of Anarchy and Breaking Bad. While the company has mostly worked in the more standard (read: affordable) action figure market in the past, Mezco's new One:12 Collective line has a more high-end collector in mind.
Last year, Mezco announced its first One:12 Collective figure, Batman from The Dark Knight Returns. Now, ahead of Toy Fair 2015, the manufacturer has provided new images of the second figure in the One:12 Collective line--none other than Mega-City One's Judge Dredd.
Listen: I'm not saying that you have to buy the entire staff of ComicsAlliance one of Mezco's new Dark Knight Returns action figures, but I am saying that it's basically the least you could do after all that we've done for you.
The new 1/12 scale action figure is available for pre-order today (and expected to ship in January), and as you can tell from the photo above, it's pretty awesome. Standing 6.75" tall and boasting 30 points of articulation, four sets of interchangeable fists (including two "batarang fists," a grappling hook and rope, a grappling hook pistol, an interchangeable boot (in case the first one gets worn out from stomping crooks, I imagine), interchangeable but equally grumpy heads, and cloth costume that actually looks pretty awesome. The price: $65.

It's been a big few months for licensed Batman '66with DC Digital launching its comic series and loads of licensors working on products modeled after Adam West and Burt Ward in their iconic superhero roles. Some toymakers are thinking big -- or huge -- with their takes on the classic Batman show, but Mezco is offering colorful characters at a smaller, 2" tall size with its upcoming line of Batman '66 Mini Mez-itz. The toymaker had multiple versions of Batman, Robin, Catwoman, Penguin, Riddler and Joker on display at its Comic-Con booth, plus its in-scale Batmobile for the toys to tool around in. Get a load of some of the smaller-scale Batman '66 toys after the jump.
Expanding on its initial action figure and plush line debuts at Toy Fair, Mezco hit San Diego Comic-Con International with loads of new Axe Cop toys. Coming in 2014 is a full second wave of action figures pulled straight from Ethan and brother Malachai Nicolle's webcomic/Dark Horse comic/Fox ADHD cartoon including figures of Axe Cop in his cat suit and president attire, plus the Candy Candy monster and the the previously seen Baby Man. New plushies include Dr. Doo-Doo and a huggable Axe Cop.
I'm still only on season three of Breaking Bad (I know, I know), so I'm hardly an expert, or as devoted a viewer as so many are of the critically-acclaimed series. That said, I still want this Walter White toy in my home. Designed by Mezco, this Comic-Con 2013 Summer Exclusive features White in his hazmat suit, a 55 gallon chemical drum, a few lab bottles and containers (you know, for making Meth), and a scale replica of the fly swatter from the season three episode "Fly." With a limited print run of 1,500, it will likely go fast, as these things always do.
Breaking Bad isn't a comic book, but considering the main character is one of the greatest supervillains in TV history, I think you guys can indulge me for some quick Toy Fair 2013 news about Mezco's upcoming BB toys...
