Mezco One:12 Collective Popeye and Bluto Stormy Seas Ahead Deluxe Box Set


Mezco has opened up pre-orders for their upcoming One:12 Collective Popeye and Bluto: Stormy Seas Ahead Deluxe Box Set. I remember them revealing these figures earlier this year at SDCC and they looked awesome! I’m really happy that they are releasing these as a set as Popeye is incredibly difficult to get, especially here in the UK so I’m glad that he’s getting a re-release along with his rival!

The detailing on these figures is absolutely perfect and I love how they incorporate the original cartoon designs into a more modern design. In my opinion, these look timeless. I’ve seen the Popeye figure before and I love it so I’m already sold on getting this box set because of him alone. The Bluto figure looks absolutely incredible and so imposing to boot!

Popeye does include all the accessories that the original figure came with along with the brand new beaten up head which looks fantastic! Bluto comes with one as well! I think the price set is absolutely perfect for these two awesome looking figures and all the accessories that they come with and the release date is just far enough that I hope some UK e-retailers put these up for pre-order soon!

Here’s the official product description from Mezco down below

Each figure includes interchangeable portraits, multiple interchangeable hands, and plenty of character-themed accessories.

Popeye, spinach-loving sailor, goes head-to-head with his brutish arch-rival: Bluto. This deluxe “Stormy Seas Ahead” box set sets the stage to spin a tale of two salty sailors and their ongoing titanic conflict.

The One:12 Collective Popeye gets a refresh. From his crisp white sailor slacks to his navy and white trimmed shirt, Popeye looks shipshape and in bristle fashion! Included are three different head portraits: two classic One:12 Collective Popeye options and an all-new roughed-up portrait. Popeye comes complete with a wide range of iconic sailor accessories and outfitting listed below.

The One:12 Collective Bluto completes the set. Appearing like he has been hanging around the docks and is up to no good, Bluto cuts a choppy wake wearing a collared shirt over a long-sleeve undershirt, work pants, and work boots – all featuring his classic colors.  He is packaged with two head portraits displaying varying levels of brawn and brawl. Bluto is well-equipped with some heavy, real metal gear to give his adversary a run for his money. THE ONE:12 COLLECTIVE POPEYE & BLUTO FIGURES FEATURE:
