NY Toy Fair 2017: Mezco Toyz Pre-Toy Fair Event – Living Dead Dolls, Horror Movies, Thundercats

NY Toy Fair 2017 is one week away, and kicking our coverage off is the annual pre-Toy Fair event that Mezco Toyz holds in their secret HQ in NYC.

In this video, Pierre Kalenzaga walks us through some of the new figures and collectables on display (as well as a few oldies making a comeback) from their various licenses, including Child’s Play, Bride of Chucky, Beetlejuice, Hellraiser, Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Batman Returns, Thundercats, and more.

We also get a peek at the next line of their popular Living Dead Dolls, and a sneak peek at the newest one-off dolls, which includes A Clockwork Orange, Night of the Living Dead, a two-pack inspired by Beauty & The Beast, and a tease of the first of many DC LDD dolls, Harley Quinn.

NY Toy Fair 2016: Mezco Pre-Toy Fair Event – VIDEOS

A week before NY Toy Fair 2015 goes down at the Javits Center, Mezco held their own pre-Toy Fair event to get everyone on board the hype train.

In part one of this video, Pierre from Mezco walks us through some of the latest offerings from Mezco, including figures, statues and Mez-Itz from Mortal Kombat, Beetlejuice, Batman VS Superman, Suicide Squad, Hellraiser, and new Living Dead Dolls.

In part two of their booth tour, Mezco unveiled a ton of new licenses as part of their six-inch collector’s line, the One:12 Collective. 2016 will see the release of new figures from Marvel including two versions of Captain America and The Punisher, as well as three versions of Daredevil. DC will see three new figures from the upcoming Batman VS Superman film, as well as stylized comic versions of Superman, The Flash, Reverse Flash, Green Arrow, and Shazam.

Also revealed were new Star Trek figures, including Spock, Sulu, and Captain Kirk.

We also discuss any upcoming lines such as video games, the future for more vehicles and playsets, and just how much access Mezco has to the Marvel franchise.

If you want to see more video footage of the upcoming One:12 Collective figures (another 10 minutes that was not seen in the video above), head to this link here to see three additional videos highlighting the different franchises Mezco is working with.

Mezco will also be at NY Toy Fair, so expect more reveals from them next week during the big event.

This is a tremendous announcement with a lot of cool items, and there is still plenty more to be revealed at NY Toy Fair next week. As for the look of these figures, it is definitely a hit or miss with them. The “Alien” line worked well because it was based on pre-existing figures that were never made and had a demand behind them. These figures are an interesting concept, but the execution may turn off some collectors from purchasing a great deal of these. However, the nostalgic look combined with the particular licenses they acquired should attract plenty of eyes and wallets to them, since they do have a unique charm with their appearance. Time will tell how successful they are, but I hope it survives for a while so we can see what else comes out of it.
