Heroes Figures
« on: January 10, 2008, 10:00 AM »
ToyNewsI has pics up of the first series of Heroes figures from Mezco Toys.  The lineup includes:  Sylar, Peter, Hiro, Claire, and Mohinder Suresh.  Pcs and info at the linky.  They don't look too bad, but I kind of put them in the same boat as the LOST figures/statues.  I like the show(s), but don't necessarily need the figures.  I wonder how lines like these do overall though.  I haven't looked in awhile, but the LOST ones seemed to be sitting at our TRU for awhile.

Meh.  Love the show but like you said, Brian, I don't need figures from it. 

Now, I might be talked into a really accurately sculpted mini-bust of Elle just to satisfy my Kristen Bell lust, uh, infatuation, no, I mean admiration!  Yeah, that's it.

Tempting - I'm really into this show, but I don't like the statue style.  If these were more like Marvel Legends articulation, I'd be all over them.

They're making action figures!  :D

EDIT: Well, duh! This is the thread for them! This post was meant to go in the TV show thread. Sorry about that.

Yeah but they dont look really very good, I think Mohinder is probably the best of the bunch.
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

A writer for a Queens paper sent along a pretty cool article for us to post about the Heroes figures.  We also got a pic from Mezco that, to the best of my knowledge, hadn't been revealed yet.

Sounds like Mohinder's gonna be tough to get. I'm probably gonna be pre-ordering a case anyway. Cool news about Future Hiro!

Are you implying that the Lost line was actually action figures?  ;)

Aw, crap! They're cool! Mezco has sold me a new toy line.

Thanks for the pics, John!  :)

HRG, Niki, and Linderman in particular look great!
