Before he was ruling the airwaves as the world’s greatest outer space talk show host, Space Ghost was patrolling the galaxies as Hanna-Barbera’s premiere caped crusader. A combination of Superman, Batman, and Green Lantern, Space Ghost was a prime example of a serious superhero (making Space Ghost Coast to Coast THAT much funnier). Now, with the release of DC’s Future Quest, Space Ghost’s popularity is going to skyrocket even more. And thanks to Mezco Toyz, you can have a Space Ghost of your own to either save the universe or interview celebrities.
Posted on Action Figure Fury, this 1:12 scale figure comes with a stand adorned with the Space Ghost logo, four different sets of hands for maximum posing options, as well as different types of laser blasts that shoot from his gauntlets. What’s the point of having cool laser shooting gauntlets if they don’t shoot lasers? Also included is his primate sidekick Blip. Now, I am old enough to remember the original cartoon, and I don’t remember Blip looking even HALF that menacing. I am definitely on board, though.
The figure sports a cloth costume, and a wired cape, meaning you can create any superhero pose you like without the hassle of needing a fan.
You can check out some more pics of Space Ghost in the gallery below. He is currently available for pre-order on Mezco’s website here.
