It’s Preview Night and I am on the show floor at San Diego Comic-Con. To get you the pics you want as fast as I can, I’m hooking you into my Instagram feed. If you’re on Instagram, follow me at afpron – that’s for AFP Ron, not AF Pron :). Stay tuned for better pictures soon.
The Caped Crusader (a Batman stand-in with an uncanny resemblance to a 1960’s Adam West) and his trusted Batmobile were on hand at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! in New York City’s Times Square to promote the launch of its new Mez-Itz line for the 1966 Batman Classic TV Series. Hagop from Constume Contumely was there and snapped these pics for AFP.

Mezco has a pair of DC Universe Mez-Itz exclusives for San Diego Comic-Con – a Man of Steel 3-pack featuring Jor-El, Superman, and Zod; and a keychain featuring the irrepressible Harley Quinn. Both exclusives are of the mini Mez-Itz variety, meaning they are about 2-inches tall.

I find blind-boxed collectibles frustrating – luckily, they tend to crop up more in the little vinyl figures that my wife collects, but I’ve caught the blind box bug once or twice. The two-inch Mez-Itz fit the bill for the blind-boxed approach – they’re super-cute and small enough to fit in those little boxes, but it probably means that these DC Mez-Itz will find a home at online and specialty retailers, whereas the previous DC assortments had made it to Toys R Us.
Any ideas on the chase? I’ll make my guess here – even though it’ll hit shelves a couple months after the movie hits theaters, I think it’s Superman in his Man of Steel costume. You heard it here first!
Mezco Announces Mez-itz DC Universe 2 inch Blind Box Assortment
New York- Mezco’s ever expanding exploration into the DC Universe continues with the exciting edition of mystery Blind Box Figures. Each PDQ contains six characters from the DC Universe with 10 unique designs; each Mez-itz has a specific rarity scale with a super rare chase figure.
The first assortment includes:
- Green Lantern
- Wonder Woman
- Harley Quinn
Each master carton contains three display boxes with 24 figurines in each. There is at least one full set within every case – including the hard to find super secret chase figure.
“I’ve been enjoying DC Comics since I learned to read” said Richard Ford, a member of Mezco’s award winning design team, “To be able to work on this series and transform characters from the DC Universe into Mez-Itz is the next best thing to having super powers”.
These figures are individually blind-boxed, which means you’ll be totally surprised by what you get! Blind-boxed figures come in sealed foil bags, without any clue as to which of the series is inside. The surprise stays secret until you open the box.
Mez-itz DC Universe 2 inch Blind Box Assortment ships in September 2013 , but is available for pre-order now at finer webstores.
Warner Bros. licensing is on a tear with the 1960’s Adam West / Burt Ward Batman TV show. At Toy Fair we saw an awesome 18-inch Adam West Batman from NECA and a series of 6-inch Batman figures from Mattel, and now Mezco is in the game with a Mez-Itz line based on the show. Mezco plans to take the line deep, including Batman’s Rogues Gallery from the show with the Penguin, the Joker, Catwoman, the Riddler, and even one of the Riddler’s thugs alongside the Dynamic Duo.
Shown here are the mini 2-inch versions, which allow for Batman and Robin to fit inside the Batmobile. I’m not sure if we’ll be seeing them in the larger 6-inch Mez-Itz scale.
