In their original incarnation, Mezco Mez-Itz were 3-inch mini-figures they produced for their licensed properties, like Aliens and Dick Tracy, and some original creations, like Pirate Mez-Itz. I know I have some of the older Hellboy and Predator Mez-Itz around here somewhere – most likely they’ve been gobbled up in my wife’s growing collection of designer figures.
This year, Mezco is relaunching Mez-Itz as a 6-inch urban vinyl brand. I reviewed the Con exclusive comic Hellboy yesterday (in short – it is awesome) and Mezco is releasing a Cinema of Fear 2-pack with Freddy Krueger and Jason Vorhees soon.
To promote the launch of the new Mez-Itz, Mezco invited customizers and designers from the toy industry to make some customized Mez-Itz. Their creations were collected into an art show and also shown at San Diego Comic-Con. In addition to the He-Man by Airmax and Skeletor by SpyMagician (shown above), be on the lookout for entries from Iron Cow, Joshua Izzo, Eddie Wires and more.
