Mezco Toyz (they love their z’s) have just announced a deal with Warner Bros. Consumer Products to make DC Comics toys. But, not just any kind of toys, Mezco’s vinyl Mez-Itz figures. I’d been hoping DC would get a deal done with Hasbro to get some Mighty Muggs made, but since Hasbro had made Marvel Mighty Muggs, and they also seem to have abandoned all Mighty Muggs fans, I don’t think anyone expected that to happen. Now that wish has come true in a different way and similar vinyl figures of beloved DC characters are going to be made.
The first two characters are going to be Batman and The Joker. They will be revealed at San Diego Comic Con, which is also when the next wave will be announced.
Check below the cut for some picture examples of previous and upcoming vinyl Mez-Itz figures. You can find the rest and purchase them here.
