  1. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the Batman - 1989 Edition from the Mezco One:12 Collective line. No, you are not dreaming. Do not attempt to adjust your computer/cellphone screen. It's happening. The review of a figure 3 years in the making. We've heard the complaints, we've memed it to death, but now, it's time to give it its due: It's a godd$*n nice figure! For reminders, the figure was announced and up for pre-order in January 2020, and supposed to be out by August to October of that same year... and it was delayed... and delayed... and delayed... No information or updates from Mezco during that whole time, which is why it became such a hot subject, and when the emails saying that they would start processing it started to pop up last month, people did not believe it at first. (There was even some weird custom that someone made and tried to pass as the real thing in early march... Those were strange times). But now, it is out! The box is quite sober, as usual with Mezco one:12 collective. Logo on the front, promo pics we had already seen on the back. There are 2 levels of inserts inside. First off the body. When you open the figure, you'll notice it has a powder coating on it. It's to protect the rubber body. Mezco released a statement about it, and if you've handled a seamless body before, you'll know it. A quick wash, either using a microfiber cloth and a bit of water, or a rubber protectant product and tadaa, it will be gone. And D$*N, this thing looks amazing. It has an articulated metal armature under the rubber, which allows for great posing. I know some collectors have posted about being frustrated by the body not moving as it should, or having loose arms or legs, but I can only talk from experience, and mine turned up great. Batman - 1989 Edition comes with 3 extra heads, on top of the one with moveable eyes, 6 extra hands, 2 capes (wired and not wired, more on that later), 4 batarangs, 1 batarang with wire, a grapnel launcher with hook, a grapnel launch with hook and wire or a collapsed grapnel launcher, a gauntlet, a time bomb, a shuriken and a couple more tiny accessories I'm not sure about (things that come from his utility belt!), along with the usual big circular Mezco stand and post. Pro tip: Dorklair posted a very helpful tip about the wired cape, which only has wires every 2 seams: You can mod it very easily by adding wires (either from twist ties that you get from other toys, or just getting actual metal wire from a hardware store) directly into the seams that do not have a wire. It's pretty easy, they slide right up, and changes everything. Now, should we have to do that ourselves after waiting for 3 years for a $100 figure, that's another story... Here is is, in all its glory. The figure feels nice in hand, moves quite easily, and the likeness is very good. The moveable eyes on the headsculpt work fine, even if it looks like he is permanently surprised (the eyes being bigger), and the 3 other headsculpts look awesome. That is one of the best 1989 Batman figure out there. Some could say it was even worth the wait, but I'll wait to say that once everybody has gotten theirs, as there are a lot of people still waiting for it, unfortunately... More news at 11:00... I'm Batman.
  2. Now that a large portion of the Mezco One:12 Collective Batman 1989 Edition have been delivered, and the reviews and pictures have been flooding our feeds, it is nice to know that the toy community can (one:12) collectively move on, and focus on the next big thing (like 'Where is my Mezco Mr Freeze'). There were multiple reports about one collector that ToyFarce went out of their way to meet: a satisfied collector! ToyFarce met with Justin, a collector from Colorado, that has zero complaints about the Mezco One:12 Collective Batman 1989 edition that he just acquired: "I'm really glad with how it turned out! Have you seen this thing? It's awesome!" About the 3 year wait: "I didn't mind waiting. I am sure Mezco wanted the figure to be perfect, which caused the wait to be longer, so I understand. The final result definitely speaks for itself! I'm glad they took their time. You can't rush perfection." About no information about the delays for 3 years: "I don't spend a lot of time online, so I would have missed it anyway. Was it really 3 years? Wow. With the whole pandemic thing, I've been working from home, so most days looked like each other, I didn't see time fly. It could have been 3 years and I didn't know." About the figure finally arriving: "It was like Christmas in late March/early April. When I received the email saying it would process soon, I was so excited! I'm sure everybody was." About the figure having a powder residue on it: "Since it's a seamless body in rubber, Mezco had to put a powder on it so that it doesn't dry or get damaged. Can you imagine? Mezco cares so much about their figures and their customer satisfaction, they put a powder on our toys to protect them. Best company ever! Also, after quickly and calmly researching on the internet, I saw that we can use a product on it to protect it as well (303 Protectant spray). Isn't it great?" About the figure itself: "I love it. The new body looks really good, it articulates well. I don't really check social media or youtube reviews, so I don't know what other collectors have been saying this whole time, but I can't imagine anybody being mad or sour about the delay or the figure. It's awesome!" There has to be some sort of morale in there... More news at 11:00... Next: Mister Freeze! *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  3. It finally happened! The long awaited Mezco One:12 Collective Batman - 1989 edition figure is out! Collectors have been starting to receive it and post pictures all over the internet (ToyFarce will have a review ready as soon as he arrives). The figure, 3 years in the making, didn't arrive without its share of issues, as some collectors reported problems with the articulation, or a powder coating on the figure. Thankfully, Mezco quickly released some instructions online... but sadly, it was a little too late for one collector. "At first, there was a significant amount of dissolving..." explained Kevin, a long time Mezco fan. "When I got the figure, it had some suspicious powder on it, so I tried to wipe it off with a paper towel. The paper towel started to leave small pieces of it on the rubber of the figure, so then I decided to use window cleaning product to clean the figure. If it can clean windows, it can clean my figure, right? Well, no. After I sprayed a copious amount of it on the figure, i noticed the rubber started to melt a little, and it would rub off if i wiped it more, leaving black goo on my paper towel, so I sprayed some Easy-Off, the oven cleaner, because you know, if it can clean a oven, it can clean my figure, right? Well...no. The rubber started bubbling and dissolving in front of my eyes. Now I have a metal skeleton with Batman's head, gloves and boots. I would not advise to use Easy-Off on your figure." More news at 11:00... "What are you? - I'm the articulated metal armature that used to be Batman." *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  4. There it is, folks! Hell has officially frozen over! On Friday, the message, 3 years in the making, has been received by everyone, like a Bat Signal in the sky: The long awaited Mezco One:12 Collective Batman - 1989 Edition action figure is processing soon! This is not a drill! But what were the events that led to its surprise reveal? Could it be that this email was unintentional? ToyFarce investigated... ToyFarce met with Brad, the newest intern at the Mezco HQ in New York, to tell us exactly what happened on Friday: "I had just come back from a coffee run, and sat down at my desk, when I saw that there was an email from the company. I looked at it and thought it was the email saying that the One:12 Collective Batman - 1989 Edition was processing soon, so I was excited, and just forwarded it to everyone, using the company email address... It is only after I scrolled down a little that I saw that this was just a new template email, and it said "FOR INTERNAL USE ONLY" in the title. Third day on the job and I've already messed up..." The news went through the toy community like wildfire, as every group chats, Facebook groups, and news website would instantly blow up and talk about how FINALLY, the wait is over. Not only that, but ToyFarce also heard that mainstream news also picked up on it. Special thanks to William "Dorklair" for sending this over! More news at 11:00... Now, that figure will definitely 100% meet the expectations of everyone, right? *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  5. As more and more Mezco One:12 Collective action figures are starting to come out, there was hope that a stray 'Processing soon' email would arrive in our mailboxes about the coveted 1989 Batman figure, a figure that has been delayed for over 2 years now (original release date was between August and October 2020). Unfortunately, it looks like we'll have to wait a little more, as ToyFarce was approached by a self-proclaimed time traveler, who confirmed to us that the figure is still not out in 2034! The time traveler introduced himself as Blizzorp3000 (he explained that in the future, we won't use first names and last names anymore, but rather our internet usernames), and said that he came from the year 2034. We were hoping that he would let us know about important upcoming events, or maybe lottery numbers or a sports almanac, but he said that that wasn't important. He was there to let us know one thing, and one thing only: The Mezco One:12 Collective 1989 Batman figure is still not out yet in 2034. When we asked why he would use a time machine to come and tell us that, he just shrugged and said he thought it was important. In fact, it was the most important thing to him. He then went back to his time machine and left. We are still not sure if it happens, or if this was a fever dream. More news at 11:00... This is heavy. *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
