Hellboy!
« on: February 27, 2004, 05:06 PM »
I picked up Grafitti Designs' Hellboy action figure a while back and was pretty happy with it. The sculpt does a pretty good job of capturing Mike Mignola's artwork and the size lends itself to my 6" scale figures from DC Direct and Marvel Legends.



Now Mezco is offering Hellboy figures from the movie, and while they look positively stunning, they're in the 8" scale. That makes MisterPL a little sad (wishing they were in the 6" or 3 3/4" scale myself), but that Hellboy's a big dude anyway, so what the heck. I probably won't be able to resist.

Has anyone found these at retail yet? And if so where?

I have seen lots of people posting on other sites that they have found them at Sam Goody, Suncoast, and Tower.  Also a few online retailers have received their stock.

Found 'em at Sam Goody today. Hellboy was a piece of work. Wow. I almost bought it, but I'm new to Hellboy, so I'm going to see the movie first.

I stumbled across every OTHER Hellboy figure today at Suncoast EXCEPT Hellboy himself.  ::)

The other figures looked awesome, definitely on par with McFarlane and DC Direct but for scale. Hellboy will look terrific towering behind my Batman figures... if I can find him.

(Gee, maybe Mattel and Hasbro are right; core characters DO sell faster than the rest.  :-\)

Hell yeah. You might finally get that trenchcoated Hellboy you seek, eh? ;)

wow. that looks awesome. i've been able to stay away from these so far, but i might have to cave and get that one. i had to fight temptation - hard - not to pick up the first hellboy figures. i loved the movie, and those first few figures were awesome.

Rumors suggest that Mezco will also producing figures based on the comic art and not just the movie.  :)

Can anyone direct me to a good Hellboy figure image gallery?  I've told myself for ages to start collecting this line and never did.  I recently picked up a super sweet lot of Hellboy prototypes and I'm 99% sure that some of the items included (clothing and accessories, not full figures) are unproduced or differ from the production version.  I want to compare them to the production versions, but I have nothing to compare them to. :(  Mezco's stock photos aren't exactly revealing and you never know with stock photos whether their true production pieces or samples, and whether they show all of their accessories.  If someone can direct me to a full-on gallery  I'd appreciate it.  Thanks.  :)

BTW, is anyone besides me anxious for the Hellboy II figures that are due soon?  I won't make the mistake of passing these up.  :P  I'm most excited about the Angel of Death in series 2, but series 1 looks great.

Dale, that last one is perfect.  I'm looking for collector-taken pics, something that will guarantee what I'm seeing is the final production version.

Now I just need to find one for Movie series 1.5 and the two comic series.  :)
