Mezco’s BLADE Figure Follows a Toy Tradition of Greatness

Mezco’s BLADE Figure Follows a Toy Tradition of Greatness

The original Toy Biz Blade action figure remains one of the greatest toys ever made, with its removable trenchcoat, sunglasses, and multiple weapons in holsters—so much so it still fetches high prices on the secondary market. Well now, we finally have a contender of equal stature, as Mezco has bust out a 6-inch, 1:12 Blade figure that has all that and a fully tailored outfit to allow for dynamic poses even at his size.

Giant glowing-eyed monster head is not included, but guns, stakes, boomerang blades, muzzle flashes, various hands, all the weapons and even an alternate Blade head are part of this package. It’s comic-based, so it’s not Wesley Snipes–but next time you see the character in live-action he probably won’t be either.

Mezco are wizards with whatever fabrics they do use, because actual leather isn’t this posable at human scale sometimes, let alone 1:12.

To the second head, we can only say “Fangs a lot!” This is sculpting with bite.

Also, you know how you normally see a cool new figure announcement, and then the small print is all “Preorder now to get him in the third quarter of next year”? Not so with Blade. Preorder now with $20 down on an $80 tab, and you’ll have him in hand by the end of this year. Maybe even in time for Halloween.

The Dhampir approves. No need to ice-skate uphill this time.
