It’s the smallest DC heroes can get without using the Atom’s shrinking belt! …nerdiest reference on this site ever?
This September, fans can literally fill their pockets with DC Comics’ most popular characters with a new line of 2-inch Mez-Itz from Mezco Toyz. Right now, retailers/really, really, really dedicated fans and collectors can order a full case of 72 blind-boxed figures — you won’t know what you get until you open the box.
Let’s roll ’em out!
As you can see, the initial line includes Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Aquaman and Harley Quinn.
That doesn’t seem fair, does it? All those heroes up against Harley. Well, she can throw down.
It’s also weird that Winking Harley is more common than Regular Harley. Again, battling heroes with one eye open? Perhaps that is to show Harley is HARDCORE.
As mentioned, there’s some variant figures including Regular Harley, Blue Lantern Hal Jordan, Superman in his not-dead-anymore suit and a SECRET CHASE FIGURE THAT IS ONLY IN ONE PERCENT OF THE BOXES. Who could it be in the one percent? Insert Bruce Wayne/Lex Luthor joke here.
We only ask that you support this line long enough for Mezco to get around to such characters as Ambush Bug, Prez, B’Wanna Beast, Rainbow Raider, Kite Man, Killer Moth and Brother Power the Geek. That’s the CORE of the DC Univese right there. Bump that New 52 jive!
Ready for the mini-heroes? Any characters you’d like to see in upcoming lines? Let us know!
