For Mezco’s third DC Universe 6” Mez-Itz release, the toy company returns to a sure thing: Batman and The Joker. If these figures look familiar, it’s because Mezco’s first DCU 6” release was also Batman and The Joker (which gives The Blot some serious misgivings). While I can understand Mezco wanting to release a second Batman figure with a wider release, do we really need new versions of Batman and the Joker so soon after their first release last summer?
Not only that, but the SDCC Exclusive Batman and Joker figures are still available for retail through numerous online retailers. However, I know a lot of people prefer this black and grey version of Batman, and personally I like this version of the Joker better than the SDCC version. So I guess it all works out in the end.
Each 6 inch Mez-Itz vinyl figure is made of rotocast plastic, features five points of articulation and comes individually packaged in a collector friendly double sided window box that allows you to see both the front and back of the figure. The Batman and Joker Mez-Itz Set is currently available for pre-order through Entertainment Earth here for $23.99. It is expected to start shipping in November 2011.
