Nice line of retro-style 8 inch action figures of Captain Marvel (er..Shazam!…whatever) from Figures Toy Co.
One the one hand, it is a bit absurd for Mezco to create this One-12 collective line of action figures. I guess 1:12 scale just sounds a lot sexier than saying these are standard 6-inch action figures. And you need all the sexy you can get when you’re charging almost $100 for a 6-inch action figure.
On the other hand, wow. Thirty-two points of articulation, three separate head sculpts and sets of hands, an attachable lightning bolt, and Mr. Atom and Mr. Mind figures included in the package. If Shazam is your thing, this may be fairly close to a definitive action figure version.
Figures Toy Co. will be making these retro 8-inch “Super Powers” figures.
This is a New 52 Shazam statue from ArtFX due for release at the end of the year. This thing is freaking hideous. It looks like Captain Marvel’s undergone a few too many plastic surgeries or something. And seriously with those boots…really?
This is, however, a pretty good reimagining of a young Liberace as a vampire.
