SDCC '11: ThunderCats and Videogame Figures from Mezco

Mezco's mega-scale Lion-O stands an impressive 14" tall, but standing next to him in a Mezco display case was their next mega-scale figure, Mumm-Ra, which may have been even more impressive. Mumm-Ra is maybe an inch taller than Lion-O and is complete with tattered cape and bandages strewn about. I asked the guys at the Mezco booth if there was going to be a big Ma-Mutt to go along with the huge Mumm-Ra. One of them said he really wanted to make a Ma-Mutt now and would make sure it would get made. So, I guess keep an eye out for a mega-scale Ma-Mutt in the future. Mezco's exclusive for SDCC was mega-scale Lion-O with an alternate shouting head with red glowing eyes. These figures only have about seven points of articulation, but what they lack in joints they make up for in their amazingly accurate looks.

Mega-scale Mumm-Ra is ever-living huge. Expect to see a big Ma-Mutt in the future.

Lion-O is mega-sized for a mega, "ThunderCats Ho!"

Mezco also had had a number of unexpected videogame figures. There is a Nathan Drake from Uncharted 3 that looks good, but seems to have very limited articulation. It was difficult to tell if the Ratchet & Clank set are action figures or a statue. Probably only their arms and heads will be articulated. There were Ratchet & Clank plush dudes, which is probably good since the figures and the plushies are from the more kid-friendly Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One game. Most unexpected of these videogame figures were the Earthworm Jim figure and plush. The original game had an HD release not too long ago, but other than that there haven't been mush talk of a new title. The figure looks very similar to the old Playmates one and the plush is quite beefy for an earthworm.

Nathan Drake has a log way to go for

Ratchet & Clank are all for

Ratchet needs a plush weapon for soft killing fun.

Earthworm Jim might be making a comeback.
