So far I’ve managed to avoid the temptation to get sucked into Mezco’s One: 12 line, but with the full production pictures of its latest addition to the DC, they might have finally got me.
Oddly, it wasn’t the amazing Mezco Toys One:12 Collective: Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Action Figure or the very intriguing looking Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice figures, but Captain Marvel himself Shazam. I’ve always considered Captain Marvel to have one of the cooler costumes — it’s the cape and color scheme — and his more wholesome attitude. It’s why I loathe the new 52 version, which is such a stark difference.
Mezco’s figure captures all that’s great about the character with an elegant portrayal of the costume, a serious face and a throwback smiling happy go lucky portrait. If I wasn’t already sold, the Mr. Mind and Mr. Atom head help seal the deal. Course this just opens up the wishlists for more Captain Marvel family members like Mary Marvel, Captain Marvel Jr., Black Adam, Uncle Dudley and Tawny.
When young Bill Batson speaks the word “Shazam!” a magical lightning bolt transforms him. Embodied with the wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the stamina of Atlas, the power of Zeus, the invulnerability of Achilles and the speed of Mercury he is now Shazam, the worlds mightiest mortal.
Meticulously developed to capture the classic heroic look of the character and outfitted on a new One:12 Collective body, the costume has some amazing details. The final product blends these elements to create a timeless icon with a “real world” look.
