SDCC 09 - Hellboy, Universal Monsters & Horror Movie Mez-Itz Vinyl Figures

One of my favorite purchases from San Diego Comic Con 2009 is Mezco Toys’ SDCC exclusive Comic Book Edition Hellboy Mez-Itz. I now that I have seen one up close, I can honestly say these 6 inch figures are extremely detailed and well made, especially when compared to other toy lines of the same ilk. I was therefore excited to learn at Comic Con that Mezco will continue to expand its line of Hellboy Mez-Itz figures with the previously announced Abe Sapien Mez-Itz figure along with a Johann Krauss figure and multiple variant Hellboy figures.

Not only that, but Mezco will be releasing a line of “Fear” themed figures that will include Friday the 13th’s Jason Voorheers, A Nightmare on Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger, and Halloween II’s Michael Myers. Mezco’s Fear Mez-Itz will be hitting stores in November 2009.

But they aren’t stopping there. Mezco plans to continue to expand its line of 6” Mez-Itz figures by releasing a “Monsters” line, which will include Dracula, Frankenstein and two different Zombie colorways. These newly redesigned Mez-Itz figures look great, and should be a welcomed addition to everyone’s action figure and designer vinyl collections.

Best of all, Mezco is actively promoting its new vinyl figure as a great platform for artists to customize. The company had a ton of really impressive looking custom Mez-Itz figures on display at SDCC 2009, including the two Masters of the Universe inspired figures below. How great do these hand painted, custom He-Man and Skeletor Mez-Itz figures look!?!
