At Toy Fair 2013, Mezco revealed their upcoming toys based on Axe Cop. Today we have received a press release with the official announcement, which includes some extra details about the license.
Mezco Toyz and Surge Licensing Announce Agreement For Axe Cop Product Line
New York- Mezco Toyz is thrilled to announce it will be creating a line of collectibles for Axe Cop. Mezco will be offering an assortment of merchandise for the Axe Cop license including both action figures and plush collectibles. Featuring one of the largest and surreally diverse casts ever seen, Mezco’s award winning design team will be in overdrive bringing them to life for fans. Many of the designs for these soon to be sought after offerings will be available for viewing at www.mezcotoyz.com. Axe Cop, the animated series, will be premiering on FOX on July 27, 2013.
The true-life story behind Axe Cop is nearly as amazing as Axe Cop himself; A 5 year old boy narrates an ongoing story based on his amazing imagination, and his 29 year old brother, a professional comic book artist, brings those stories to life. The results are an axe-wielding cop partnered with a flying T-rex with machine gun arms. Critics have called Ax Cop “A darker, grittier Calvin & Hobbes”, “…All kinds of fun…” , and Ax Cop has been praised by Entertainment Weekly.
