ToyFarce News: Mezco Uses Pink Skulls Diversion! It's Super Effective!

Last week was quite a roller coaster of emotion if you are a Mezco collector! There were teases all week that the Pink Skulls Chaos Club, a fan favorite, was making a comeback. Then, a new and improved 2.0 version of the Pink Skulls set became available for pre-order (and went to waitlist in under 2h)... And we finished the week with an avalanche of emails from retailers telling us that most of the Mezco products were now delayed. Fun!

First, the Pink Skulls 'took over' Mezco's social media, by posting pictures of previous Rumble Society figures with graffiti all over the pics (weirdly, there was no graffitied pictures of the Batman 89 figure...). It was a pretty fun stunt, a bit like when the G.I.Joe Haslab page got 'taken over' by Cobra. The whole Mezco website also had 'bugs' with the front page displaying only Pink Skull Chaos Club sets instead of all the other products. If you had decided to start collecting Mezco that day and wanted to learn more about their products, it might have been super confusing. Then, they released an actual video clip, complete with original punk song and stop motion!

Then, like clockwork, on wednesday at 1pm EST, the figures became available for pre-order. And oh boy, what a glorious set! They have different heads and outfits! At least 74 different hands! A vinyl with original music! The box can be turned into a stage! Much happy! Very wow! It would have been such a great week if it all ended there, right?... And then, on friday, the emails started pouring. "Pre-order ETA update alert"... "Pre-order ETA update alert"... If you got any of the Mezco one:12 Collective figures through BigBadToyStore, you probably got a few emails. Most of the figures are now delayed for a few more months. Was it all pre-determined, or just a wild coincidence? We'll let you decide based on those promo pictures from the latest set...
