Batman and Joker Mez-Itz Now Available for Pre-Order

A couple of weeks ago we found DC Universe Mez-Itz listed on the Mezco web store. They just made them available for pre-order. The Batman and Joker are available in a 2-pack for $40 and will ship around San Diego Comic-Con. They’ll also be available for purchase at the Con.

I’m very psyched about these. Mez-Itz are scale-compatible with Hasbro’s Mighty Muggs, and also feature a ball-joint at the neck – you can get some great poses other vinyl figures without that won’t be able to manage.

The Kick-Ass Bundle that includes Mez-Itz and keychains is also available for pre-order.

The Batman & Joker 6inch Mez-Itz two pack, which is a summer exclusive that will be revealed at SDCC, is available for pre-order now at

in July they will also be available at SDCC 2010.

Mezco San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive DC and Kick-Ass Mez-Itz Preview Pics

We’re probably jumping the gun, because there’s been no official announcement from them yet, but when Mezco announced they would be making Mez-Itz for the DC Universe, we had to go poking around – especially after they said they’d have an exclusive 2-pack with the Batman and Joker.

Here’s what we found. Awesome! (And stay tuned for official word, coming soon.)

WonderCon 2010

WonderCon 2010 - Cosplay 1 (1200x900).jpg

To be completely honest, I wasn’t even going to bring my camera to WonderCon at first. My wife and I were only going to be able to go for a few hours one afternoon, and although WonderCon is organized by the same folks who handle San Diego Comic-Con, it doesn’t attract the the toy manufacturers like SDCC does. As we were getting ready to walk out the door, I thought, why not?

Kick-Ass Figure Set Available for Pre-Order at Mezco Direct

I never finished the Kick-Ass comic, but people keep telling me I should – and the movie is getting some great buzz too. The figures aren’t as articulated as I’d like. Mezco delivered some great figures in their Hellboy movie lines that were highly articulated, so while the sculpts look great, I want more from my super heroes. You can get this set for $30, and it should ship in October.

“Kick-Ass”, the action-adventure movie from Lionsgate and Matthew Vaughn, is a twisted high-octane adventure that redefines the “super hero” genre, based on the popular comic by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.

Kick-Ass, a.k.a. Dave Lizewski is an average teenager and avid comic-book fan, who decides to become a real-life superhero, Kick-Ass! With no actual super powers, his life is forever changed as he encounters the violent, real-crime world of common thugs, drug lords and underworld mobsters.

Kick-Ass 1/12 scale 6” action figure that captures the essence of “Kick-Ass” armed with two billy-clubs, and wearing signature suit and mask.

Hit-Girl, a.k.a. Mindy Mc Cready is an 11 year-old pig-tailing wearing waif with the fighting skills of a ninja. This little super hero proves she has some real kick- ass skills.

The 1/12 Scale action figure features Hit-Girl in her signature plaid skirt, purple wig and cape. Armed with a pair of butterfly knives, and her double Gitano bladed mindy stick.

Set of 2 includes 1 Kick-Ass/ 1 Hit-Girl.

Ships October 2010.
