Mezco’s One:12 Collective continues to produce top tier figures at the 6 inch scale. Their Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice figures have been some of the best executed so far. Today we are taking a look at Superman from BvS: DoJ. Superman features a stunning likeness to Henry Cavil, and is the best execution of his suit in this scale yet. The fabric suit features the ornate pattern with a layered super symbol, and lays tight on the figure. Coupled with Batman from the line, it’s a perfect pair for the shelves. Let’s take a closer look after the break courtesy of Entertainment Earth!
Mezco One:12 Collective Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice Superman
Another winner from Mezco. The Batman v Superman figures have all been fantastic, and Superman caps it off. The likeness on his standard head is crazy, almost every angle nails the Cavil look. The open mouth ones, standard and heat vision ones, not so much. On this one and the standard Batman, the open mouth ones don’t do it for me. Look very doofus-like, like they are making a fart noise or something. But the resting faces are perfect. Fabric is tight and complicated, perfect execution. I don’t dig the One:12 figures with noticeably large fabric, where it looks doll like, or Mego like. These work though, as do the ones with significant leather like Daredevil. That’s personal opinion though, I know some are down with the style.
Cape construction – not bad. Pretty much no cape I’ve run across in the last year or so on any figure, from any company, is great. This one works well if you flip it back onto itself. It can’t really lay flat in a single layer and come down in front of the figure without a big poof over the shoulders. It doesn’t really keep any dimension either, it lays straight down the back or bunches up unnaturally. However, in a straight-down setup, it looks great.
Alternate hands, great, no problems. Accessory – Gotham City sewer cover that breaks apart – cool but nothing epic. Alt heads – discussed above. Stand – as usual with One:12, great.
Bottom line, best DCEU Superman to date. Worth a pick up!
