Mezco’s “One:12 – Mutant Leader” Figure Breaks The Internet

San Diego Comic Con is still six weeks away but one exclusive con item is already making waves: The One:12 Collective Limited Edition Summer Exclusive The Dark Knight Returns Deluxe Boxed Set.

Limited to only 1000 units, the deluxe set went up for pre-order at midnight Thursday morning and, in the spirit of the Mutant Leader himself, promptly broke the internet.
As online sales came to a sputter halt, IT workers across the country went into high alert, downed some energy drinks, and began working on a solution.

The set, depicting the epic first encounter between Batman and The Mutant Leader in one of comicdom’s most infamous battles, features:

– Battle Damaged Batman figure with an exclusive head sculpt, torn exclusive variant costume, alternate hands and exclusive “Knock-Out Foam” accessory designed to fit over his enemy’s face.

– Exclusive “first look” Mutant Leader with a variant dirtied up paint application to enhance the realist battle in the junk yard, alternate hands and crowbar accessory.

– A Polystone cold casted display base of the Gotham City Junk Yard over 10 inches long with felt footing.

Sweetening the deal even more, each set comes with a free Mez-Itz clip-on Poison Ivy figure.

With the issue now largely resolved, orders are flowing into the website.

“It was kind of a perfect storm” says a Mezco spokesperson, “We’ve been staggering the release of the pre-orders over two weeks purposely to avoid a situation like this, but once we put up the One:12 Collective boxed set last night we had an influx of Batman fans on top of Breaking Bad fans, Living Dead Doll fans, Mortal Kombat X fans, and Poison Ivy fans. It just caused the whole thing to come crashing down.”

Each of Mezco exclusive limited edition items will also be available at Mezco booth, #3445, at San Diego Comic Con for those unable to secure them at
