Toys for Tots Auctions –

CoolToyReview has a set of auctions for some rare toy collectibles that will directly benefit Toys for Tots. Canonball recently did a similar auction – see Turning $20.00 into $175.00 for Toys for Tots for more info on that – and it’s a great idea. Toys get into the hands of collectors who are on the hunt, and Toys for Tots (or your favorite charity) get more than the value of the actual collectible. Everyone wins!

Here’s the CTR items:

The auctions end between December 23 and 25th – click through and bid them up!

Mezco 12-Inch Green Hornet and Kato

The Green Hornet (and Kato, of course) is more my older brother’s thing than mine – I hadn’t been born yet when it was on the air, and the Batman TV series got a lot more airtime in replays. Although produced by the same team, the Green Hornet played it straight while Batman camped it up – so I’ll have to find out how my brother feels about Seth Rogen in the role.

In any case, the toys are coming. These are the 12-inchers, and I’m not sure if Mezco will also be making ones that fit in with the 7-inch scale that’s prevalent for movie properties.

Green Hornet 1/6 Scale 12inch Figures

Mezco 12inch 1/6th scale figures are based on the characters from the upcoming big budget tent pole film from Sony Pictures. The Green Hornet, due to release January 2011. A classic character of film, television, radio, and comic books returns to the big screen in Columbia Pictures’ feature film The Green Hornet, starring Seth Rogen as the vigilante crime-fighter. The film will be based upon “The Green Hornet” radio series created by George W. Trendle.

The 12 inch figures feature amazing attention to detail, perfectly capturing both the actor’s likenesses as well as the spirit of the characters.

The Green Hornet features 11 points of articulation, as well as an alternate right hand, gas gun, and real cloth coat. Kato features 9 points of articulation, and an alternate right hand with gun.

Both figures are packaged in a collector friendly window box.

The Green hornet and Kato ship in November 2010 and are available for pre-order at
