Last year Mezco revealed that they’ll be releasing a Frank Franzetta inspired Mezco One:12 figure which was originally scheduled to be released in 2021, but now has been pushed forward to the fall of this year!
When Mezco initially showed this figure off I was immediately impressed and was very keen to hear more about the figure and today Mezco has put the figure up for pre-order with a gallery showcasing all his accessories!
I know that this figure is inspired by the Frank Franzetta artwork of Conan and I have to say aside from the Arnie films this is one of Conan’s most iconic looks. I’m a big fan of Conan so this figure is already a must-have for me!
Unlike most of Mezco’s One:12 figures, this one does not come with much of an outfit aside from the soft goods interchangeable loincloths and the cape. The body is painted to recreate his look from the artwork and it looks fantastic. I’m very happy that he comes with an interchangeable loincloth and cape as well as a removable belt, necklace, and a cross-body harness. So you can get quite a lot of looks from Conan with his various accessories.
Speaking of accessories he comes with a scimitar sword with removable sheath, broadsword with removable sheath, a dagger with removable sheath, a battle-axe which can be stored in the cross-body sheath, shield and an interchangeable head with a more aggressive facial expression.
The weapons and clothes pieces look greatly detailed and very weathered and I love the attention to detail on the sheaths for the two swords that he comes with!
He also comes with eight sets of interchangeable hands so you can get Conan in a wide variety of poses as well as a Display stand with some brilliant Conan artwork!
Here’s the official press release from Mezco:
