Mezco One12 Collective Batman Figure 003

Back in July, Mezco surprised collectors by announcing an all new line of highly articulated collectible figures; the One:12 Collective line. To introduce us to the line, Mezco revealed the first figure, which was a Batman based on Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. The One:12 Collective Figures fall somewhere between the look of traditional 1/6 scale figures and retro Mego style designs. They feature the high level of articulation and cloth outfits you would expect in 1/6 scale figures, but are scaled down to about 6” tall. At this size, it keeps the price low for fans who want the look and feel of the much more expensive 1/6 scale figures, but don’t want to sacrifice the bells and whistles that those lines offer.

The Dark Knight Returns Batman alone features over 32 points of articulation and includes numerous accessories. The figures includes an alternate head sculpt, four sets of interchangeable hands, interchangeable boots, a removable utility belt, a pistol, a grappling hook, and a figure stand with Bat-symbol base. That’s an impressive array of accessories for the roughly $65 price tag online retailers are listing it for. The Batman figure is also coming in multiple colors. Right now, there are three versions revealed, giving fans a chance to own the version that suits their tastes. These include the iconic black and gray outfit, a Previews Exclusive retro style blue and gray costume and a Special Limited Version featuring a navy blue and gray costume.

At San Diego Comic-Con 2014, we got our first in person look at the Batman Figures. We also got our first news of the next figures in the line. They had announcement cards revealing that we would get a comic version of Judge Dredd and a Michael Keaton Batman. While we haven’t yet seen the 1989 Batman, we did finally see the awesome looking Judge Dredd in October during our coverage of Mezco’s New York Comic-Con 2014 Display. Like the Batman, the Dredd figure features a highly articulated body, a cloth outfit, interchangeable hands, numerous weapons and a themed figure base. Fans were especially pleased with the Judge Dredd design. We can’t wait to see what else is in store for the line.

Mezco has shared with us an exclusive, behind-the-scenes style look at the upcoming Dark Knight Returns Batman Figure. This “exploded” x-ray style view gives us a look at how the figures will be assembled. It also gives a look at where and how the alternate pieces will connect. As you can see, the figure has no shortage of articulation points. Articulation ranges from ball joints to hinge joints and features the much loved ab/torso articulation for truly dynamic poses. Read on to check out the image as well as a bunch of other official images showcasing the figures and a cool shot of the figure displayed in Times Square, NY.

Batman TNA Batman 41

DC Animation started down a path of artistic style in the early 90s with Batman “The Animated Series”. It was darker in tone, featured art deco styling, and was a throw back to animation of old. But it worked. Larger upper bodies, squared off chins & thin limbs were a key highlight. That style ran for years to come, seen in Batman “The New Batman Adventures”, Superman, Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, Batman Beyond, and a slew of animated movies direct to VHS and DVD. It evolved as it went, but it originated with Batman TAS. Toy lines from Hasbro, and then Mattel, featured figures from these shows, usually aimed at kids (duh), featuring gimmicks and crazy repaints for Batman and Superman. The key here being that most of the toys from this era are simplistic in nature. Fitting for the times, and even the style, but we as collectors are eager for a little more.

Enter DC Collectibles in 2014 with their first collector focused “Batman Animated” line. 5-6 inches tall, wide range of articulation, and very true to the animation models in sculpt, fine details, and accessories. They’ve started off with a mix of the two Batman series, some being from the original “The Animated Series” and others coming from “The New Batman Adventures”. Today, we are taking a look at the first, Batman, from TNBA. Read on to check out over 40 high res shots of Batman in action along with our thoughts, courtesy of site sponsor Big Bad Toy Store!
