Mezco Toyz has been teasing us for weeks with NY Toy Fair 2019 reveals, and today is no different. With the event only a few days away, this announcement might be the biggest, as the NYC-based toymaker has unveiled an entirely new line – 5 Points!
Toy Fair is less than a week away and it’s time for another Toy Fair 2019 product reveal! Here’s a sneak peak at a brand new line we will be debuting at Toy Fair: 5 Points.
So, why the name 5 Points? Because these figures being done in the same vein as Super7’s ReAction figures and other retro-style toys, with five points of articulation. Those points are a rotating head, and arms and legs that can move up and down, and that’s it.
For now, it appears they only have the Hanna-Barbera license, but that’s still quite a large universe to get through. The two figures seen above are Birdman and The Ghost of Elias Kingston from “Scooby-Doo, where are you?”, which can only mean the entire Scooby Squad is not far behind (and more figures of Velma from Scooby-Doo is fine by me).
It’s quite a big change from their One: 12 line, which has brought Mezco a ton of attention from figure collectors since it debuted a few years ago. However, if there is one company who can do this retro figure and make it awesome, it’s Mezco.
This is an exciting announcement, but it’s highly doubtful that any of these products will be in display at Toy Fair since the images say “Sculpt in Progress”, and it may be too early in production to show anything more concrete, as licensors still need to give their final seal of approval.
There have been a lot of reveals leading up to NY Toy Fair. Some of the highlights so far have included Hasbro’s “Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures” figures, McFarlane Toys picking up the Wizarding World of Harry Potter license, Mezco’s new One:12 Captain Marvel figure, Mego announced new 14″ Star Trek figures, and a new line based on characters from Stan Lee’s vault, and Neca debuted a great looking Shredder and Karate Kid set.
Stay tuned this weekend as our exclusive NY Toy Fair 2019 coverage begins on Saturday!
