We had previously asked Mattel if the Attitubes they showed at San Diego Comic-Con last year were coming, because we hadn’t been too jazzed with DC Direct’s Blammoids! offerings thus far.
Looks like the urban vinyl license for DC was still up for grabs, and I’m tremendously psyched by this announcement, in which Mezco will producing Mez-Itz for DC Universe characters. Check out my review of the Mez-Itz Comic Hellboy to see why.
