Mezco Toyz unveiled its second wave of DC Universe Mini Mez-Itz vinyl figures this past weekend at Toy Fair 2011, and to say The Blot’s surprised by Series 2’s line-up would be a huge understatement! DC Universe Mini Mez-Itz Series 2 2-packs include The Flash and Captain Cold, Batman Beyond and Blight, and Doctor Fate and The Demon.

While The Flash and Captain Cold are usually included in new DC Comics toy lines early on, the addition of Batman Beyond’s Terry McGinnis and Doctor Fate is pretty shocking (don’t even get me started on Blight). I’m just worried producing such relatively unknown characters in Series 2 will hurt sales and kill off this great toy line before it can even get off the ground. The one positive note to all this is with characters like The Demon already being produced, who knows what random heroes and villains might be included in Series 3! Personally The Blot’s holding out hope for a Booster Gold and Blue Beetle 2-pack.
Mezco’s DC Universe Mini Mez-Itz vinyl figures stand 2 inches tall, feature five points of articulation and will be packaged in 2-packs together on a blister card. You can purchase each 2-pack for around $10 or all three 2-packs of Wave 2 for around $30. The release date for DC Universe Mini Mezi-Itz Series 2 has not been announced yet.
