Just last night Mezco officially revealed their One:12 Morbius figure. I know that Mezco had shown off this figure a while ago, though I can’t exactly remember if it was last year or before that. But I know that this figure has been a long time coming like the Ghost Rider figure that was officially put up for pre-order a few months ago.
I’m familiar with the character Morbius because I grew up watching Spider-Man The Animated Series and I remember Morbius being part of a few of the major storylines in the series. Like in the comics he started as a villain and became a hero.
I personally think that this figure looks fantastic, though I think his cape should be a bit longer as it does look a bit too short. Also, the array of accessories are fantastic too! I really love all the interchangeable heads and the multi-layered mobile science lab which houses a lot of accessories. I am quite surprised that this hasn’t pushed the price up from around the standard $80-$85 price point, especially as it has light-up features.
This figure is scheduled to be released between September and November of this year. Here’s the official press release from Mezco:
Morbius “The Living Vampire” One:12 Collective Figure
“I’m not a man to play with bluffs… I mean what I say.”
The One:12 Collective welcomes Morbius, the living vampire!
Morbius wears a fitted bodysuit with a winged cape and features three head portraits, capturing varying degrees of his grisly nature.
The Nobel Prize-winning biochemist comes complete with a multilayer mobile science lab with a light-up function. The removable top layer holds science equipment such as a foldable microscope, handheld hematology analyzer, and removable test tube and beaker, while the bottom layer conceals weapons such as a dagger, customized handgun, and hammer.
While attempting an experimental treatment involving vampire bat DNA and electroshock therapy, Dr. Michael Morbius turns himself into a pseudo-vampire in an effort to cure his rare blood disease. As a result, he develops superhuman powers including enhanced agility, strength, and stamina. With an insatiable lust for human blood, the nightmarish vigilante finds himself torn between his human and monstrous natures.
