NYCC 2013: Mezco – Breaking Bad, Axe Cop, DC Universe Mez-Itz and More

NYCC 2013 - Mezco (1 of 20)

I started my binge-watching of Breaking Bad shortly before New York Comic Con started, so I was looking forward to picking up a Walter White exclusive. And I was as disappointed as Walt Jr. to find his dad had sold out. I returned on Sunday and decided to pick up a Heisenberg figure. This time, I was in luck – Mezco had saved one, not for me, but because the bubble had ripped off and they weren’t sure anyone would want it. But Walt had his sunglasses, hat, ziploc full of blue meth, and his duffel bag of cash. I won.

Icon Heroes Thundercats Minimates and Thundertank

This is a guest review from Ayeffkay. If you are a fan of the Thundercats Minimates, be sure to check out the exclusive Thundercats Minimates set coming to this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.

I have always been a huge fan of the Thundercats. Sure I had most of the Masters of the Universe and I picked up G.I. Joe a little late around 1988, but Thundercats was my show. Alas, after two seasons and a hundred and fricken thirty episodes, the series ended and the property has languished in the shadows since, save for a very short-lived reboot in 2011. While the reboot produced a decent cast of action figures, they did not have the charm of the barely articulated behemoths of the 80s. Not one set of glowing eyes among them sadly.


Fortunately, Icon Heroes has been releasing Minimates of the classic Thundercats at Comic Con for the last few years. Ron was nice enough to pick some up for me, although now I suspect he was angling for me to write an article for AFP. I nearly foiled his plot by simply hanging them on the wall, unopened, but then something magnificent happened: they released a Minimates-scale THUNDERTANK! How could I not buy that? How long could I resist opening it and driving it around my living room?

Icon Heroes Announces ThunderCats and Masters of the Universe Exclusives for San Diego Comic-Con

Icon Heroes has revealed its exclusives for San Diego Comic-Con. I’m glad to see the ThunderCats Minimates continue. For more information on the He-Man bust, check out our conversation with Joe Amaro, who collaborated with the Four Horsemen on that piece. And remember, those Power Swords are compatible with the larger figures in the Masters of the Universe Classics line, like Tytus and Megator.

All three exclusives will be available at the Action Figure Xpress Booth #3345.

Mezco Toyz Reveals 3rd Summer Exclusive: Cheetara and Snarf Mega Deluxe 2 Pack

New York- As the world of fandom collectively counts down to the July 18th start of San Diego Comic-Con International 2013, Mezco adds fuel to the flames of excitement by revealing the details of one of their Summer Exclusives:

Cheetara and Snarf Deluxe 2 Pack

This mega scale multipack features Cheetara, the Thundarian noble who is as lovely as she is brave and cunning, and Snarf, the much beloved sidekick of the Thundercats.

This exclusive version of Cheetara features glow in the dark eyes; superbly detailed, with 10 points of articulation, perfectly capturing not only the iconic look of Cheetara as she appeared in the classic television series, but the essence of Cheetara as she proudly wields her signature bo staff in defense of her comrades.

Snarf, the comedic yet fiercely loyal sidekick of the ThunderCats, stands a snarfing 5 inches tall (in scale with the rest of Mezco’s ThunderCats Series) and snarfs a snarfity snarf snarf.

Both are packaged together in a collector-friendly window box.

This Mezco Summer Exclusive is a Limited Edition. A limited amount are available online at, but don’t delay because once they are gone, they are gone forever!

Be sure to visit Mezco at San Diego Comic Con at booth 3445.
