Just in time for the release of DC Entertainment’s much anticipated Wonder Woman film, Monogram International Inc. announces its Classic Wonder Woman Collection. As always Monogram will offer a wide selection of collectibles and novelties, enough to please any fan of the Amazon goddess.

Kenny Pierce of the PiercingMetal website and I enjoyed a sneak peek at the prototypes for many of these goodies way back in February at The Toy Association‘s annual fair. The company has since provided us with an overview of the entire line. A pair of bust banks and new paperweight are highlights of the series along with a variety of logo emblazoned novelty items.

I’m a huge fan of the Soft 3D figural key-rings. Their bemused smiles always make me giggle and the selection of characters goes very deep into each licensed universe. When perusing Monogram’s sales booth I’m always pleasantly blown away by the saturated color palate of much of the product line. It’s completely in keeping with the comic book nature of many of their licenses. That said, some of the pieces in the Wonder Woman series lean more toward the adult collector. Polished metal key-rings, one emulating Diana’s Batman Vs. Superman shield, and the pewter lapel pin in particular will be good choices for the sophisticated lady who wants to let her geek flag fly but in the mellowest of ways.

This polished pewter pin could find a home on any geek girls lapel or purse strap.

All of these Wonder Woman items are available at retailers right now. You can find them at Hot Topic, Amazon, Entertainment Earth, and Diamond Comics.

The gallery below, featuring images from Toy Fair 2017, offers a sampling of the dizzying selection of the Monogram International product line. BTW, the T’Challa (Black Panther) Bust Bank totally rocks!

Go Figure: Mezco Toyz 2017 “One:12 Collective” Preview

Strange Days Indeed. This beautiful rendition of Marvel Comic’s Dr. Strange will join Mezco’s One:12 Collective.

The Toy Industry Association’s (TIA) 114th North American International Toy Fair in New York City is less than 24 hours away and as always we are preparing to bring you coverage of the newest products and toy trends for the latter year gifting season. Cameras are packed, lenses are polished, and we’re stocking up on energy bars for the 4 day foray that encompasses the entire Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and parts beyond.

Another Fine Mez…
Thanks to the fine folks at Mezco Toyz we got an amazing head start. Their recent sneak peek event (held at their outer borough Fortress of Solitude) afforded the opportunity to grab lots of unfettered photos of their upcoming offerings. This post will reveal the additions to their One:12 Collective, but you can expect plenty of pix of Living Dead Dolls and other licensed goodies to appear here as well. Keep in mind this is an advance look and many of these prototypes are still pending licensor approval.

Great for Play, Great for Display…
If you’ve spent any time on this site over the last couple of years you already know that I’m a big fan of Mezco’s One:12 Collective line. These approximately 6 inch figures are fully articulated, incredibly detailed, and come with an expanded selection of extras. They are boxed in nicely designed display cases but you won’t want to leave them in the box because they are so much fun to pose and play with. Extra heads and hands expand the posing possibilities and specialty items like The Joker‘s chattering teeth gag, Superman‘s bottled City of Kandor, Shazam‘s Mr. Mind, and Evil Dead‘s flipping-you-off corpse hand are pure gold for collectors.
