The Snow White fairytale has seen a massive resurgence lately thanks to TV shows like Once Upon a Time and movies like ,the appropriately named, Snow White & The Huntsman. Today though, MTV Geek is going to be spending time with a version of Snow White that doesn't have a drunken Thor to help her against the Queen. Oh, and this version of the Queen has a giant gaping maw-- and also is in the form of a creepy-ass doll! Join us as we take a closer look at Snow White and her Evil Stepmother, the Queen, from Mezco Toyz' Living Dead Dolls Scary Tales Vol. 4!
Toy Fair 2012: Mezco Talks ThunderCats Mumm-Ra and Panthro Figures
It's a well-known fact that, in fiction, the bad guys always look cooler-- in reality, not so much. Of course, this is MTV Geek and reality is a place we rarely waste time in! Today we're reviewing one of the 80's greatest animated antagonists: Mumm-Ra the Ever-Living! Yes, Lion-O's enemy #1 has seen yet another action figure release thanks to the resurgence of ThunderCats popularity; however, this time it's not only the vintage version, but he's friggin' HUGE! Today we're taking a closer look (one so thorough, it's borderline creepy) at Mezco Toyz' ThunderCats Classic Mumm-Ra Mega-Scale action figure!
Read on for more looks at a huge pile of plastic that's molded in the shape of an extremely evil s.o.b.!
Toy Fair 2012: Mezco Toyz Scares Up the Universal Monsters
As we roll ever closer to Halloween (Hey, it's only 5 months away!), it seems that the Universal Monsters have been scaring up lots of new action figures, and in a variety of scales, based on their classic likenesses. While a couple of companies have tossed their hat into the monster-making ring, Mezco Toyz has decided to bring out something so huge it has its own system of measurement: Monster Scale! That's right, Mezco has once again resurrected Frankenstein's Monster, (Check out their smaller version here.)and this time he clocks in at 18 inches tall! We first saw this guy filling up plenty of a display case in the Mezco booth during Toy Fair 2012, and every time we see new photos of him, we're reminded of how we can't wait to have that stylized corpse on our shelf-- and that we're gonna have to make a bigger shelf!
While the villagers fearfully ready their pitchforks and torches, read on to find out all the info on this stylized take on the patchwork abomination!
Toy Fair 2012: Mezco Toyz Scares Up The Universal Monsters
The Universal Monsters, and the films they terrorized, are an integral component to American film history and we are glad to see the ol' Gang of Horrors getting their due with a number of action figure and toy releases. While Diamond Select Toys have been bringing out Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, and a number of others in their Select-scale, our pals over at Mezco Toyz are planning a full barrage of monsters in all styles and sizes! We gazed at the entire lineup during Toy Fair 2012, and now we're that much closer to owning them with the latest announcement that the 9" Frankenstein will be the first release! The styling on these hearkens back to Mezco's earlier lines like Gangsters Inc., Reservoir Dogs, and the stylized Tony Montana from "Scarface" with realistic texturing placed over more exaggerated sculpts. We can't wait to have this re-animated monster on our shelves in time for Halloween!
Read on for all the info straight from Mezco Toyz, along with a shot of the variant version of Frankenstein's Monster!

Back in 1962, artist Wallace Wood reported humanity's downfall at the hands of our Martian overlord through Topps trading card series, effectively titled: Mars Attacks. While we were obviously able to take the fight back to those green-suited bastards and send them packing back to the red planet, now Mezco Toyz is helping to once again spearhead their invasion of our world! Strangely enough, we found this out during Toy Fair 2012 rather than a major news network. Way to report the facts, "journalists"!
Join us as we take a look at not one, but 3 different scales our conquerors will be arriving in!
"Ancient Spirits of Evil...transform this decayed form--to Mumm-Ra, the Ever-Living!"
Remember that incredible Mega-Scale Lion-O from Mezco Toyz we premiered a while back? Mezco Toyz released two versions of the ThunderCats' fearless leader (one regular and an SDCC version with an alternate head and glowing eyes) in 2011. Well, it looks like he's scored both an archenemy AND an ally with two new releases in Mezco's ThunderCats line! Panthro and Mumm-Ra the Ever-Living are large and in charge-- but are still in the final phases of development. Luckily, MTV Geek and Mezco Toyz are bringing you an exclusive first look at the two new figures and the processes involved in creating them.

When there's no more room in your toy box, the adorable dead will walk the Earth!
This week, on Twitter, we're giving away a creepily cute Living Dead Dolls gift set featuring the dastardly duo of Rotten Sam and Sandy! Read More...
Blind-boxed toys are both extremely popular right now AND incredibly addicting. Not knowing what toy you'll open up can cause fits in some as the buy up entire cases of toys from Kid Robot, Disney Vinylmation, etc., in order to score the one little bobble they have their toy-lovin' eye on! Well, our friends at Mezco Toyz have thrown their hats in the ring with the release of the new Living Dead Dolls Figurines. Are these new toys as cute as vinyl releases from other companies? Are they as horrifyingly creepy as the Living Dead Dolls? Could they possibly be both?! Read on to find out as we review these tiny, addictive wonders.
We're currently snatching up any and all Bat-related merchandise due, in large part, to our addictions to Batman: Arkham City and DC Comics' Batman line from their New 52. While we have lots of intricately detailed and/or super articulated versions of the Dark Knight and his Bat-Family, our collection was lacking a little something-- and we think we've found it in the guise of Mezco Toyz' Batman Mini Mez-Itz w/ Batmobile set! Join us as we take a look at this cute Caped Crusader and his sweet, vinyl ride!
What could be cuter and more hug-worthy than the rotting corpses of humans and animals? Not a lot-- if you're judging by Mezco Toyz latest release: The Creepy Cuddlers line of plush toys! This line, by the makers of the infamous Living Dead Dolls, allows for kids of all ages to get in on the zombie-lovin' that the world seems to be wrapped in as of late, and what better time for a review of these toys than Halloween? Join us as we review the morbid majesty of the Creepy Cuddlers to see if their tricks are less than their treats!
First up is the Living Dead Doll Creepy Cuddlers:
While New York Comic-Con is fast approaching, October is still dominated by the horrors and candy-filled holiday of Halloween. That makes it all the more fitting Mezco's Living Dead Dolls is also celebrating its unlucky 13th anniversary with the release of Sadie-- the original LDD! Join us as we take a look at this creepy-ass doll-- who we keep locked away in the spare room. Yeah, according to every horror movie ever, we're doomed!
We here at MTV Geek! are proud to present this exclusive first look at Mezco Toyz’ DC Universe Mez-Itz Mega Scale Batman! The blue and gray version of Bruce is the limited variant but the black and gray pile of vinyl-badass won’t be around forever. Both versions clock in at around 200 bucks, which is a small price to pay for these stylized Cape Crusaders.
Perhaps the greatest summer exclusive in the universe, Mezco proudly presents the Mega Scale Batman Mez-Itz. Standing taller than many newborn infants, this Batman Mez-Itz measures 20 inches from the tip of his ears to the soles of his batboots.
He features a real cloth black cape. Just like the standard Mez-Itz, he features 5 points of articulation and 1000 points of fun.
This Mega Scale Mez-Itz Batman will premiere at the world famous San Diego Comic Con, but is also available for pre-order at:
San Diego Comic Con is almost upon us! As the big show gets closer, companies are revealing more and more of their exclusives. Mezco Toyz, makers of the recently reviewed Green Lantern Mez-Itz will have a DC Universe Mez-Itz Green Lantern & Sinestro Comic Version 2-Pack at SDCC for all you fans of ring-slinging vinyl figures!
Mez-Itz, 6" rotocast vinyl collectibles that are cool by design. Both GREEN LANTERN and SINESTRO feature five points of articulation with 1000 points of fun, and are packaged in sturdy, collector friendly box!
In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. But when a new enemy threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan.
Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans. But Hal has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris, if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may become the greatest GREEN LANTERN of all.
This is a non-numbered limited edition item. Edition size TBD.
This item will premiere at the 2011 San Diego Comic Con, but is also available online at :
