Mezco One:12 Convention Exclusive Captain America
The dust is settling on NYCC 2016, folks are home wrapping up their coverage, opening their toys, and we here at MUReview are doing the same.  While at NYCC we picked up two absolutely exceptional gems.  The Mezco One:12 Collective Convention Exclusive Shadowland Daredevil, which we took a look at yesterday, and the Mezco One:12 Collective Convention Exclusive (classic) Captain America.  We absolutely loved the Daredevil for all of the incredible things it got right, and even some of the things it didn’t get technically right.  I’m pretty sure we are looking at more of the same with Cap here….but let’s take a closer look. read more

NYCC 2016: Mezco One:12 Convention Exclusive Shadowland Daredevil
Mezco has stepped to the plate with their One:12 Collective line, and with every pitch, they have knocked it out of the park, a veritable Home Run Derby of action figures.  The line, which started last year, I think…might be two years ago now, time flies, features attention to character detail found only in exceptionally premium toys / statues.  So add One:12 to that list of premium figures, but with a reasonable price tag, what could go wrong?  Literally nothing, everything is amazing, especially in this 2016 Convention Exclusive Shadowland Daredevil. read more

NYCC 2016: Marvel’s Cup O’ Joe Panel

NYCC 2016: Marvel’s Cup O’ Joe Panel

Every year at NYCC (and I think SDCC), Marvel throws their Cup O’ Joe panel.  It’s a panel featuring a bunch of the creative Marvel talent as well as top brass, Joe Quesada, Axel Alonso.  Attending as well, Dan Slott, Sana Amanat, Khory Randolph, David Walker, Charles Soute and Nick Spencer.  The panel was ok, not thrilling, they really didn’t tease too far out from what was already on shelves, barely touching on books coming out the end of this month.  I mentioned in my post regarding the DC Rebirth panel the two very different experiences between the two companies banner panels for their comics.  Sitting down, the NYCC staff and outfitted security essentially levied threats, that if a photo was snapped during this panel, about comic books, or if anything was recorded, in this panel about comic books…not live action movies, tv or anything, that the offender would not only be removed from the convention but would face FEDERAL prosecution.  I’m not kidding, those are the words that came out of the pre-moderators mouth.  At a panel featuring pictures of comic books.  She went on to say that this would be the rule applied to ANY and ALL panels at comic con.  That in fact was not the case at all, but certainly the case for this super clandestine, literally half Q and A session with Marvel.  Now, I don’t know if the directive for no pictures was Marvel, Reed Pop, a miscommunication or what.  But that immediately soured me.  I’ve taken pictures at every single Cup O’ Joe for the last 5 years, but not today.  The only picture I have to share with you is the featured image and this… read more
