So over the weekend, I was able to purchase a Mezco One:12 Captain Marvel from a fellow collector who was underogoing from downsizing.

I won't beat around the bush - I might be Mezco's worst nightmare. I don't buy many of these, and the ones I pick up don't generally blow the mind of any collector, even hardcore Mezco collectors. But, this is Captain Marvel, and I knew she came with some fun accessories - that coupled with a great price made this purchase a no brainer.

This toy is of course based on the Brie Larson version of the character, and was released not that long ago.. maybe Summer 2020. I just remember it being quite delayed. The actual contents of the box are quite impressive for the $80 USD they asked for (I'll get back to this), especially when all the other figures were about $80 as well.

You get the figure, three total portaits (unhelmeted head, helmeted head, Binary mode helmeted head), eight additional hands, two Photon energy effects for the closed fists, two large Photon fist effects, two Photon Beam effects, Goose, Tesseract, Pager, a leather jacket, and the standard Mezco stand with arm.

In terms of contents, I believe there's more in the Mezco kit than even the Deluxe Hot Toys release, but naturally the quality is much better over in sixth scale land, including the kick ass battery powered light effects.

It's weird, but Captain Marvel was better, the same, and worse at the same time than the typical female Mezco release. You remember how I said it was a good bargain at $80? Well, I suspect that somebody at Mezco crunched some numbers, and realized that yes, it was a great deal. So great, that they probably wouldn't make their intended profit margin at the presale price.

You'll notice from the side-by-side photo next to the Figuarts, Mezco Hela, and Mezco Kitana that Captain Marvel is small. Almost like they did some cost cutting as this would reduce the cost of the bodies, suits, and possibly the jacket. Based on solicitation photos, this was planned from the start, and it's honestly tough to tell without another figure next to her. She always felt like she gave off dwarf vibes, so at least this verifies it.

For those interested, Cate Blanchett is about 5 ft. 8 inches, and Brie Larson is about 5 ft. 6 inches... clearly somebodies math is off and based on looks I'd definitely put my money on Larson being too short.

Also, you'll notice all three figures that can't put their arms at their sides? All Mezco figures.

From an outfit perspective, Captain Marvel is leagues better than the one that came with Hela. Hela is effectively wearing a black body sock with some shiny green trim. The Captain Marvel outfit has more sections where the texture is replicated by synthetic leather, in addition to the gold trim. Furthermore, even the body sock parts have a sheen to them, as opposed to the Performing Arts costume that Hela has. The leather jack has some good tailor work, though the decals might need a bit of resticking depending on your luck.

The helmeted sculpts look pretty good, but the Brie Larson sculpt? It's not as bad as Gal Gadot, but it's nowhere near as good as the Cate Blanchett that came with the Hela figure. It's passable, but due to its looks and overall large size (which makes the squatness of the body even worse) I stick with the helmeted looks.

From an articulation perspective, no surprises whatsoever. Hela had already disappointed me so I was prepared. For the most part, it's alright, as the suit at least lets you use pretty all the body is capable of. You get ankles, single jointed knees, hips with thigh swivel, minor waist swivel combined with slight ab crunch and ability to bend backwards, mid torso joint, standard shoulders, single jointed elbows, wrists, neck, and head.

For whatever reason, the feet are designed such that the socket is on the body, as opposed to the foot. This design limits the range of motion the foot has, which is why all her lunging poses don't look all that great. The rigidness of the shoulders has been, and continues to be, a major pain because you can't bring the arms together closer which combined with the single jointed elbows really limits what you can do with her upper body. The good news is, however, that overall you're still going to get more articulation out of this figure than the Hot Toys release.

Paint work for the most part is pretty good. To my eyes, the flesh coloured parts are just the base plastic. Everything else for Captain Marvel is pretty sharp, including the paint work on the pager and the minute details on her outfit. Now Goose, on the other hand.. body is great but those eyes are just messed up. It's not just the one in my hand either - even the prototype looks walleyed.

Build quality is again a non-issue. The body feels solid with strong joints, and with a little luck breaking pegs is not going to be an issue. As mentioned, the uniform and leather coat are well tailored and stitched. The translucent energy effects are also nicely done, with no rough finishes or fragile bits. All pieces come together nicely.

So there you have it - The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. Overall though, the Mezco figure is probably the best overall option for a Captain Marvel. It's alright levels of articulation wrapped up in a pretty good outfit and suite of accessories.

That brings my Mezco journey to an end for now. There's rumours that Mezco is making a Black Widow for the movie, and should that actually become a reality it will probably be the next time I revisit this line.

Until next time.

That brings my Mezco journey to an end for now. There's rumours that Mezco is making a Black Widow for the movie, and should that actually become a reality it will probably be the next time I revisit this line.

Until next time.

So over the weekend, I was able to purchase a Mezco One:12 Captain Marvel from a fellow collector who was underogoing from downsizing.

I won't beat around the bush - I might be Mezco's worst nightmare. I don't buy many of these, and the ones I pick up don't generally blow the mind of any collector, even hardcore Mezco collectors. But, this is Captain Marvel, and I knew she came with some fun accessories - that coupled with a great price made this purchase a no brainer.

This toy is of course based on the Brie Larson version of the character, and was released not that long ago.. maybe Summer 2020. I just remember it being quite delayed. The actual contents of the box are quite impressive for the $80 USD they asked for (I'll get back to this), especially when all the other figures were about $80 as well.

You get the figure, three total portaits (unhelmeted head, helmeted head, Binary mode helmeted head), eight additional hands, two Photon energy effects for the closed fists, two large Photon fist effects, two Photon Beam effects, Goose, Tesseract, Pager, a leather jacket, and the standard Mezco stand with arm.

In terms of contents, I believe there's more in the Mezco kit than even the Deluxe Hot Toys release, but naturally the quality is much better over in sixth scale land, including the kick ass battery powered light effects.

It's weird, but Captain Marvel was better, the same, and worse at the same time than the typical female Mezco release. You remember how I said it was a good bargain at $80? Well, I suspect that somebody at Mezco crunched some numbers, and realized that yes, it was a great deal. So great, that they probably wouldn't make their intended profit margin at the presale price.

You'll notice from the side-by-side photo next to the Figuarts, Mezco Hela, and Mezco Kitana that Captain Marvel is small. Almost like they did some cost cutting as this would reduce the cost of the bodies, suits, and possibly the jacket. Based on solicitation photos, this was planned from the start, and it's honestly tough to tell without another figure next to her. She always felt like she gave off dwarf vibes, so at least this verifies it.

For those interested, Cate Blanchett is about 5 ft. 8 inches, and Brie Larson is about 5 ft. 6 inches... clearly somebodies math is off and based on looks I'd definitely put my money on Larson being too short.

Also, you'll notice all three figures that can't put their arms at their sides? All Mezco figures.

From an outfit perspective, Captain Marvel is leagues better than the one that came with Hela. Hela is effectively wearing a black body sock with some shiny green trim. The Captain Marvel outfit has more sections where the texture is replicated by synthetic leather, in addition to the gold trim. Furthermore, even the body sock parts have a sheen to them, as opposed to the Performing Arts costume that Hela has. The leather jack has some good tailor work, though the decals might need a bit of resticking depending on your luck.

The helmeted sculpts look pretty good, but the Brie Larson sculpt? It's not as bad as Gal Gadot, but it's nowhere near as good as the Cate Blanchett that came with the Hela figure. It's passable, but due to its looks and overall large size (which makes the squatness of the body even worse) I stick with the helmeted looks.

From an articulation perspective, no surprises whatsoever. Hela had already disappointed me so I was prepared. For the most part, it's alright, as the suit at least lets you use pretty all the body is capable of. You get ankles, single jointed knees, hips with thigh swivel, minor waist swivel combined with slight ab crunch and ability to bend backwards, mid torso joint, standard shoulders, single jointed elbows, wrists, neck, and head.

For whatever reason, the feet are designed such that the socket is on the body, as opposed to the foot. This design limits the range of motion the foot has, which is why all her lunging poses don't look all that great. The rigidness of the shoulders has been, and continues to be, a major pain because you can't bring the arms together closer which combined with the single jointed elbows really limits what you can do with her upper body. The good news is, however, that overall you're still going to get more articulation out of this figure than the Hot Toys release.

Paint work for the most part is pretty good. To my eyes, the flesh coloured parts are just the base plastic. Everything else for Captain Marvel is pretty sharp, including the paint work on the pager and the minute details on her outfit. Now Goose, on the other hand.. body is great but those eyes are just messed up. It's not just the one in my hand either - even the prototype looks walleyed.

Build quality is again a non-issue. The body feels solid with strong joints, and with a little luck breaking pegs is not going to be an issue. As mentioned, the uniform and leather coat are well tailored and stitched. The translucent energy effects are also nicely done, with no rough finishes or fragile bits. All pieces come together nicely.

So there you have it - The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. Overall though, the Mezco figure is probably the best overall option for a Captain Marvel. It's alright levels of articulation wrapped up in a pretty good outfit and suite of accessories.

Build quality is again a non-issue. The body feels solid with strong joints, and with a little luck breaking pegs is not going to be an issue. As mentioned, the uniform and leather coat are well tailored and stitched. The translucent energy effects are also nicely done, with no rough finishes or fragile bits. All pieces come together nicely.

So there you have it - The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. Overall though, the Mezco figure is probably the best overall option for a Captain Marvel. It's alright levels of articulation wrapped up in a pretty good outfit and suite of accessories.

That brings my Mezco journey to an end for now. There's rumours that Mezco is making a Black Widow for the movie, and should that actually become a reality it will probably be the next time I revisit this line.

Until next time.

So over the weekend, I was able to purchase a Mezco One:12 Captain Marvel from a fellow collector who was underogoing from downsizing.

I won't beat around the bush - I might be Mezco's worst nightmare. I don't buy many of these, and the ones I pick up don't generally blow the mind of any collector, even hardcore Mezco collectors. But, this is Captain Marvel, and I knew she came with some fun accessories - that coupled with a great price made this purchase a no brainer.

This toy is of course based on the Brie Larson version of the character, and was released not that long ago.. maybe Summer 2020. I just remember it being quite delayed. The actual contents of the box are quite impressive for the $80 USD they asked for (I'll get back to this), especially when all the other figures were about $80 as well.

You get the figure, three total portaits (unhelmeted head, helmeted head, Binary mode helmeted head), eight additional hands, two Photon energy effects for the closed fists, two large Photon fist effects, two Photon Beam effects, Goose, Tesseract, Pager, a leather jacket, and the standard Mezco stand with arm.

In terms of contents, I believe there's more in the Mezco kit than even the Deluxe Hot Toys release, but naturally the quality is much better over in sixth scale land, including the kick ass battery powered light effects.

It's weird, but Captain Marvel was better, the same, and worse at the same time than the typical female Mezco release. You remember how I said it was a good bargain at $80? Well, I suspect that somebody at Mezco crunched some numbers, and realized that yes, it was a great deal. So great, that they probably wouldn't make their intended profit margin at the presale price.

You'll notice from the side-by-side photo next to the Figuarts, Mezco Hela, and Mezco Kitana that Captain Marvel is small. Almost like they did some cost cutting as this would reduce the cost of the bodies, suits, and possibly the jacket. Based on solicitation photos, this was planned from the start, and it's honestly tough to tell without another figure next to her. She always felt like she gave off dwarf vibes, so at least this verifies it.

For those interested, Cate Blanchett is about 5 ft. 8 inches, and Brie Larson is about 5 ft. 6 inches... clearly somebodies math is off and based on looks I'd definitely put my money on Larson being too short.

Also, you'll notice all three figures that can't put their arms at their sides? All Mezco figures.

From an outfit perspective, Captain Marvel is leagues better than the one that came with Hela. Hela is effectively wearing a black body sock with some shiny green trim. The Captain Marvel outfit has more sections where the texture is replicated by synthetic leather, in addition to the gold trim. Furthermore, even the body sock parts have a sheen to them, as opposed to the Performing Arts costume that Hela has. The leather jack has some good tailor work, though the decals might need a bit of resticking depending on your luck.

The helmeted sculpts look pretty good, but the Brie Larson sculpt? It's not as bad as Gal Gadot, but it's nowhere near as good as the Cate Blanchett that came with the Hela figure. It's passable, but due to its looks and overall large size (which makes the squatness of the body even worse) I stick with the helmeted looks.

From an articulation perspective, no surprises whatsoever. Hela had already disappointed me so I was prepared. For the most part, it's alright, as the suit at least lets you use pretty all the body is capable of. You get ankles, single jointed knees, hips with thigh swivel, minor waist swivel combined with slight ab crunch and ability to bend backwards, mid torso joint, standard shoulders, single jointed elbows, wrists, neck, and head.

For whatever reason, the feet are designed such that the socket is on the body, as opposed to the foot. This design limits the range of motion the foot has, which is why all her lunging poses don't look all that great. The rigidness of the shoulders has been, and continues to be, a major pain because you can't bring the arms together closer which combined with the single jointed elbows really limits what you can do with her upper body. The good news is, however, that overall you're still going to get more articulation out of this figure than the Hot Toys release.

Paint work for the most part is pretty good. To my eyes, the flesh coloured parts are just the base plastic. Everything else for Captain Marvel is pretty sharp, including the paint work on the pager and the minute details on her outfit. Now Goose, on the other hand.. body is great but those eyes are just messed up. It's not just the one in my hand either - even the prototype looks walleyed.

The good news is, however, that overall you're still going to get more articulation out of this figure than the Hot Toys release.

Paint work for the most part is pretty good. To my eyes, the flesh coloured parts are just the base plastic. Everything else for Captain Marvel is pretty sharp, including the paint work on the pager and the minute details on her outfit. Now Goose, on the other hand.. body is great but those eyes are just messed up. It's not just the one in my hand either - even the prototype looks walleyed.

Build quality is again a non-issue. The body feels solid with strong joints, and with a little luck breaking pegs is not going to be an issue. As mentioned, the uniform and leather coat are well tailored and stitched. The translucent energy effects are also nicely done, with no rough finishes or fragile bits. All pieces come together nicely.

So there you have it - The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. Overall though, the Mezco figure is probably the best overall option for a Captain Marvel. It's alright levels of articulation wrapped up in a pretty good outfit and suite of accessories.

That brings my Mezco journey to an end for now. There's rumours that Mezco is making a Black Widow for the movie, and should that actually become a reality it will probably be the next time I revisit this line.

Until next time.

So over the weekend, I was able to purchase a Mezco One:12 Captain Marvel from a fellow collector who was underogoing from downsizing.

I won't beat around the bush - I might be Mezco's worst nightmare. I don't buy many of these, and the ones I pick up don't generally blow the mind of any collector, even hardcore Mezco collectors. But, this is Captain Marvel, and I knew she came with some fun accessories - that coupled with a great price made this purchase a no brainer.

This toy is of course based on the Brie Larson version of the character, and was released not that long ago.. maybe Summer 2020. I just remember it being quite delayed. The actual contents of the box are quite impressive for the $80 USD they asked for (I'll get back to this), especially when all the other figures were about $80 as well.

You get the figure, three total portaits (unhelmeted head, helmeted head, Binary mode helmeted head), eight additional hands, two Photon energy effects for the closed fists, two large Photon fist effects, two Photon Beam effects, Goose, Tesseract, Pager, a leather jacket, and the standard Mezco stand with arm.

In terms of contents, I believe there's more in the Mezco kit than even the Deluxe Hot Toys release, but naturally the quality is much better over in sixth scale land, including the kick ass battery powered light effects.

It's weird, but Captain Marvel was better, the same, and worse at the same time than the typical female Mezco release. You remember how I said it was a good bargain at $80? Well, I suspect that somebody at Mezco crunched some numbers, and realized that yes, it was a great deal. So great, that they probably wouldn't make their intended profit margin at the presale price.

You'll notice from the side-by-side photo next to the Figuarts, Mezco Hela, and Mezco Kitana that Captain Marvel is small. Almost like they did some cost cutting as this would reduce the cost of the bodies, suits, and possibly the jacket. Based on solicitation photos, this was planned from the start, and it's honestly tough to tell without another figure next to her. She always felt like she gave off dwarf vibes, so at least this verifies it.

For those interested, Cate Blanchett is about 5 ft. 8 inches, and Brie Larson is about 5 ft. 6 inches... clearly somebodies math is off and based on looks I'd definitely put my money on Larson being too short.

Also, you'll notice all three figures that can't put their arms at their sides? All Mezco figures.

From an outfit perspective, Captain Marvel is leagues better than the one that came with Hela. Hela is effectively wearing a black body sock with some shiny green trim. The Captain Marvel outfit has more sections where the texture is replicated by synthetic leather, in addition to the gold trim. Furthermore, even the body sock parts have a sheen to them, as opposed to the Performing Arts costume that Hela has. The leather jack has some good tailor work, though the decals might need a bit of resticking depending on your luck.

The helmeted sculpts look pretty good, but the Brie Larson sculpt? It's not as bad as Gal Gadot, but it's nowhere near as good as the Cate Blanchett that came with the Hela figure. It's passable, but due to its looks and overall large size (which makes the squatness of the body even worse) I stick with the helmeted looks.

From an articulation perspective, no surprises whatsoever. Hela had already disappointed me so I was prepared. For the most part, it's alright, as the suit at least lets you use pretty all the body is capable of. You get ankles, single jointed knees, hips with thigh swivel, minor waist swivel combined with slight ab crunch and ability to bend backwards, mid torso joint, standard shoulders, single jointed elbows, wrists, neck, and head.

For whatever reason, the feet are designed such that the socket is on the body, as opposed to the foot. This design limits the range of motion the foot has, which is why all her lunging poses don't look all that great. The rigidness of the shoulders has been, and continues to be, a major pain because you can't bring the arms together closer which combined with the single jointed elbows really limits what you can do with her upper body. The good news is, however, that overall you're still going to get more articulation out of this figure than the Hot Toys release.

Paint work for the most part is pretty good. To my eyes, the flesh coloured parts are just the base plastic.
