Mezco’s One:12 Collective is a new bar for collector level figures, doing a mix of movie accurate and classic figures from DC, Marvel and even some vintage properties. Today we are taking a look at one of their recent Batman offerings – Ascending Knight Batman! This is the first in a series of Batman related figures from Mezco that is not based on any specific look or story from the lore. It’s their own vision of Batman through the years.
Ascending Knight is the equivalent of a “Year One”, an early-on version of Batman. He pulls cues from his Detective Comics debut with the elongated ears, shorter gloves and wide black Bat Symbol. This is all done in a modern way though, with upgraded tech and materials throughout both as a toy and what it would represent in the modern world of gear.
His accessories are deep with 10 Batarangs, 3 sets of hands +1, wrist dart gun, grappling gun with 3 interchangeable hooks in different states of deployment, and a “Bat-Brick”. The Bat-Brick is a super big Batarang that folds in half and has slots for his fingers. He also has an unmasked Bruce Wayne head and a One:12 stand featuring this Bat Symbol.
All in all it’s a solid entry to the Batman shelves. The draw will be when all of the Mezcoverse Batman figures are out, the next being modern day Sovereign Knight. Once these can all be on display together it will be an awesome setup.
