The darkest of the New Gods comes to life in the Mezco 0ne:12 Collective line.
There is no doubt that one of the best lines on the collecting market today is the Mezco 0ne:12 Collective, Darkseid is the the prime example. Some releases are satisfactory, they have great designs but are missing that thing that make it worth the higher prices, then there are figures like this that just blow you away. The amazement started then I opened the brown shipper box and found how he was packed. Darkseid is not only an amazing figure but he was encased in a metal box full of cut foam to keep him safe when he is not on display.
If you grew up in the 80’s and had the Super Power figure this would be what your perception of the figure was compare to what we got in the early days. The size and heft of the figure compared to the rest of the line is in scale and imposing even to the Man of Steel. What sets Darkseid apart is not the lights or the box but the feel of the figure. Instead of the standard plastics we are used to, this New God is made from polystone and metal and when we are paying a higher price these things make it worth it. All the features work well from the light up eyes and four face plates, to the magnetic belt. The price is high for this figure, almost double the standard figure, but it just feels worth it.
We have been waiting a few years for this figure, and while some may complain about the wait I think it gave them time to do it right!
