You knew this was coming. I mean when Mezco Toyz announced their San Diego Comic-Con 2015 exclusives, they did say the 2-pack was coming with “an exclusive deco variant Mutant Leader”, meaning that a standard release of the One:12 Collective Mutant Leader had to be coming. It’s Mezco and we all know how much they like their variants.
The Mutant Leader is based on his appearance in Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. He stands about 6-inches tall in the 1/12 scale (hence the name of the line) and comes with numerous character specific accessories and features. For accessories, he comes with an alternate head with a broken nose, an alternate head with gritted teeth and glasses, one set of fists, one holding hand, one posing had, a torch, a crowbar, and a display based with posing stand.
These figures are very high quality for being done in the 6-inch scale. With the cloth closing and number of accessories, one might even go as far as comparing these to the premium sixth scale action figures, scaled down of course. Some of the features I’m talking about are real leader-like pants, sculpted details that capture the brutal rage of the character, 80’s style sunglasses from the comic book, a studded punk rock belt, and sub-dermal body spikes.
He’s scheduled to start shipping in December or January for $65.00. Pre-orders are currently being taken here.
