Mezco One:12 Captain Nemo Reveal!
Just yesterday Mezco fully revealed their upcoming Captain Nemo One:12 figure. Over a decade ago Mezco released a Captain Nemo playset which was more of a stylized action figure with a fantastic playset and a lot of accessories. Now Mezco has given that character a One:12 makeover and I have to this figure looks incredible.
As you can see the figure is incredibly well-detailed and has a fantastic steampunk look to him. Like all Mezco One:12 figures, he is very intricately detailed and comes with plenty of accessories! I am really blown away by this figure and the soft good parts of his outfit are well implemented with the plastic parts. The headsculpts look incredibly good, I really love the detailed beard braids with the jewels tied in them. His face looks well weathered and worn and with the bandana, he looks more like an adventurous Captain Nemo.
The cloak looks very nautical and the metal arm and its interchangeable parts look so intricate and I really do love the harpoon hand that looks amazing! The belts and holsters look very nautical and I love how this carries over into the weapons as well. He also comes with a sextant and a spyglass which all sea-faring captains need and he even comes with a shark trophy.
The added bonuses of the model Nautilus, art book, and deluxe packaging are a great added touch but not really needed. Though what I really do love about this figure is that Nemo is a classic literary character and would fit very well in with Conan and Solomon Kane and they all would look fantastic on the shelf together. It should be noted that this figure is a Mezco exclusive so I am very unlikely to get it here in the UK as the shipping and import duty on top of this figure would be far too expensive for me to get here in the UK. Though it is a fantastic figure nonetheless and I would love the chance to get it. Here’s the official listing information from Mezco:
