    Mezco DKR Batman

    First figure of their new 6inch line. They've made several variants of this, but this is the standard one and quite fantastic. Time to retire the MOTUC Mattel version.

    Batman: I know.


    Vader: what are you?

    Batman: I'm Batman.

    "Which one should we use boy?"

    "No, I have something bigger in mind for you Clark"


    "We could have changed the world…now…look at us…I've become a political liability…and…you…you're a joke. I want you to remember, Clark…in all the years to come…in your most private moments…I want you to remember…my hand…at your throat…I want…you to remember…the one man who beat you"


    "You're beginning to get the idea, Clark. This... is the end... for both of us."

    "This should be agony. I should be a mass of aching muscle — broken, spent, unable to move. And, were I an older man, I surely would... But I'm a man of 30 — of 20 again. The rain on my chest is a baptism. I'm born again."

    "This loud, clumsy, stupid thing -- this is the weapon of the enemy. We do not need it. We will not use it.
    Our weapons are quiet -- precise. In time, I will teach them to you. Tonight, you will use your fists -- and your brains.
    Tonight, we are the law.
    Tongiht, I am the law.
    Let's ride."




    "There are seven working defenses from this position. Three of them disarm with minimal contact. Three of them kill. The other-- [KRAKK] --hurts."


    "This will be a good life. Good enough."

    It's a really awesome figure. I hope they do a bunch more figures in this mixed media style.

    I'm not a DKR fan so I'm passing.

    I am though picking up Dredd and the mutant leader just cause he looks so cool.

    As an old Mego man, I like the general style, but I'm not a fan of Miller's hulked out Batman at all, so that and the price tag pretty much make this one a pass. If they made a standard Neal Adams Bat, I'd be hard pressed to skip it, though. The list of properties they can draw from, though, looks impressive, so there will likely be some things down the line that will be hard to pass on. I'm honestly tempted on the Dredd; I'm not a big fan of the character, but the figure just seems to capture the comic version perfectly, and it looks fantastic. If I do get it, it will be based on the quality of the figure itself (and maybe the cycle).

    A big thing for something like this is that I don't see them doing any property in depth; we'd likely get a few figures from a bunch of different properties, but not enough from any one to really consider it a "line" in and of itself. Something like Dredd fits that bill fairly well, as you could make a handful of figures and feel like you have a decent representation of the property. Three of four Bat characters, on the other hand, feels quite incomplete.

    Also as far as figures with soft goods clothing go, Mezco's actually looks better than the larger scale Sideshow one I've had for years.

    That's how I feel exactly. A Neal Adams, Graham Nolan, or Joe Aparo Batman would be a dream come true.

    That's not from Sideshow. That's DCD's Batman from their awful 13 in figure line.

    Oops! Been years.

    I'd like to see Spawn done in this style. I think he'd translate really well with the fabric overlays and pouches, plus interchangeable heads and hands.

    Looking forward to Judge Dredd, epecially since they'll do a Lawmaster bike/vehicle.

    I'm with you on that for the most part. I'm not a big fan of Mego figures (for the most part they were before my time, and just not something I ever got into), and the cloth outfit just seems to run contrary to the "badass" look that they are otherwise going for. At least IMO. No offense to anyone who likes it.

    I think it's a huge disservice to compare this to a Mego figure. Yeah they both use soft goods, but the execution and engineering are night and day.

    No problem. Don't worry I used to own it too.

    Cool idea. I'm not a Spawn fan, but I agree that he'd look great.

    This thing is certainly enticing, but no review has so far completely convinced me until your pictures of him punching people.

    Grandson of Mego, then?

    Folks, myself included, refer to any figure like this as "Mego-esque" percisely because it is the descendant of that style of figure. In evolutionary terms, Mego is the Cro-Magnon, and these are **** Sapiens Sapiens. I will say Megos still have one advantage that these have lost: removability of the cloth costume. You get a tear, pull or run in this one, and you basically need a whole new figure, not just the costume.

    I will say that there is a lot of potential here, and there is a major advantage to using cloth costumes in some cases, especially if they make female figures with things like skirts or male figures with long tunics or cloaks. Imagine a Dr. Doom that can easily sit down on a throne without the bottom of his green tunic causing problems. I'm pretty sure something they make along the way is going to draw me in.
