    I think @Roufuss just meant there aren't many female Mezco characters versus none or two or three of them.

    Correct.

    Look at their entire output and you are lucky to get one, maybe two female figures a year. Some years there were 0.

    And that output slowed even further once Harley and Catwoman just broke on a lot of people, and Mezco just kind… stopped. Invisible Woman and Power Rangers are needed to complete a team. Ghost Spider is the first standalone female figure in… years, at this point.

    So holding out for Scarlett and Baroness, it will never happen. Mezco still can’t even be bothered to give us any female X-Men character. Not even one. Phoenix, Rogue, Storm, nothing.

    This is a company who can’t stop releasing Batman figures and won’t do a Batgirl lol.

    When Ghost Spider fails I’m sure Mez will go “I knew it! Female characters don’t sell!”

    For the sake of Mezco fans who desire a decent female figure, I sure hope Gwen is superior to any female figure they've produced.

    For my purposes although Sue is limited, for that character what Mezco offers in articulation is more than I'd need. She's not a ninja, or assassin, or even a skilled hand to hand combatant. That they didn't provide top class articulation for Wonder Woman is criminal. Heck even Kimberly from PR should have been articulated better.

    Hopefully they can do right by Gwen because if any female character they've released deserves high level articulation it would be that one. Let's see what happens.

    I’m just hoping Gwen does good so we can get one X-Woman. I’m good with just one. Make it Storm.

    But damn, just do one.

    Nahhh. You do one, the lack of the others becomes even more glaring.
    Full run or do none. There is no middle ground.

    Also, I genuinely don’t see them surpassing the Mafex Storm. That piece is chef’s kiss PERFECTION.

    I don’t really want a comic accurate one, I’d prefer Mezco’s take on it like some of the past figures. I have the Mafex one but doesn’t fit in at all with Mezco’s versions.

    Unknown for now if Mezco is done with the GI Joe/Cobra line @mark4flair, however there’s still the teased not-Vamp/Stinger for the Rumble Society lineup (which for sure that it can be used with Classified figures).

    Did they really make invisible versions of Wonder Woman and others but not Sue, THE Invisible Woman?:lolol :banghead: 

    As for Gwen, Amazing Yamaguchi already killed that figure. No one ever needs to make another one as far as I'm concerned.

    But Crimson Guards and CC? Damn, if they did those two justice, I would probably break boycott for them.

    Mezco did the Classic and Armour WW only, but ZERO Frosted Parts if made totally invisible (like Freeze).

    I’ll be in for Coco if Mez doesn’t do a shitty photoshop tease or it falls apart when you fiddle with it.

    Is it officially stated that they’re done with Joe? Or is that conjecture based on nothing being offered for preorder?

    It is speculation that the Mezco Joe line could be over with, as there has not been any type of reveals. Mezco could be waiting for Yo Joe June, to reveal and release several new Joes.

    It’s just guessing then. I’d wait until after duke releases before assuming the worst

    Really, though, if they don’t do a CC, then this is possibly one of the worst managed licenses I’ve ever seen. I’m not personally touching the cobra characters until I see him shown, despite wanting all of them.


    speaking of Joe, for anyone who has them would you mind posting a picture of the mezco’s using the haslab hisstank? I haven’t opened my hisstank still, but I do kinda find the idea of the Mezco Destro riding it to be appealing. I guess I don’t mind building a custom CC and some troopers for a display if Destro looks good with the hisstank

    Lets not be hyperbolic. Super7 and Simpsons/TNG still is a thing.

    Mezco has done some good Joe figures, just not the ones you want. Calling it "one of the worst managed licenses" isnt fair.

    ‘One of’ implies there are other badly managed properties, which definitely include those you mentioned. lol

    I feel it’s fair to say something is mismanaged if they fail to make the key leader character.

    it would be like making a Batman line where the only characters released were nightwing, Robin, and Alfred.

    This isn’t simply me not getting the character I want. for many lines, sales naturally flow from the way characters are released. You make the key character or leader, then people naturally buy the other characters to add to that initial purchase. Failure to make that key character seems like an obvious way to destroy interest from customers
