HELPING YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR FIGURE(S)!
The first wave of Hellboy action figures from the new movie will be brought to you by Mezco Toys and features six Hellboy action figures, fully articulated and sculpted by Mezco's award winning team of sculptors.
Once again, clamshells are the order of the day for Hellboy, but these are quite different from the style we saw for the earlier Mezco.
He was summoned by the Nazis at the end of World War II with the purpose of using him and his Right Hand of Doom as a medium to bring Armageddon, Hellboy was obtained by the American Forces and was raised under the care of Professor Broom Bruttenholm, the founder of a top-secret government organization called the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense.
Under Professor Broom's guidance, Hellboy has learned human compassion and a desire to do good while his physical and paranormal abilities coming from his demonic lineage, were polished. Thus his evil nature is essentially suppressed by his human upbringing and introduction into the human world.
Hellboy is physically stronger and durable than any ordinary human being; has the strange ability to heal and recover from wounds quickly; and is immune to flame. He also has the paranormal ability to speak to the dead aside from being able to speak and understand ancient and magical languages. Best of all, Hellboy sports a customized revolver pistol so big that it will surely make Dirty Harry turn green with envy!
But under the hood of the big red machine lies a boy deep within who simply loves to play pranks on others, chomp on cigars, drink beer as if it were water and has a weakness for chocolates. Hellboy has a personable yet immature personality, and because of this trait, sneaks out once in while from the bureau's underground hideout to experience the human world.
Plain and simple, Liz is the love of Hellboy's life.
What started out as infatuation turned into something beautiful for the two lovebirds and quite ironically, they are a match made in heaven. If Hellboy is conveniently fireproof, then Liz is the firestarter. She has the paranormal ability to control fire using pyrokinesis or the ability to produce and manipulate fire just by using her mind or fiery emotion.
Liz suffers from guilt and depression for when she was still a child she accidentally killed her parents because of her uncontrollable ability. To prevent herself from doing more damage to her surroundings and to those around her, she allowed herself to be admitted and locked up in a psychiatric facility.
The Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense took her in and helped her to control her fiery powers and eventually signed her up to become an agent of the team in fighting the supernatural and magical beings wreaking havoc against mankind.
Abe is an amphibious humanoid creature with unique psychic abilities.
He has large, bright eyes, webbed feet and hands, and a pair of gills on his neck which allows him to breathe underwater. He is an incredible swimmer as well and although he may be amphibious, Abe can also walk on land but only for a limited period of time since he becomes weak when he doesn't get wet.
Other than his swimming abilities, Abe is also a telepath who is able to discern the thoughts and emotions of those around him. With a passive yet somehow sarcastic personality, Abe is naturally peaceful and contemplates on his actions unlike his partner Hellboy who would rather beat the heck out of the opposition before asking for questions or information.
Dr. Johann Krauss is a by-the-book German psychic agent working for the BPRD. He was transformed into an ectoplasmic human being (spirit) after a failed communication with a spirit destroyed his body. He is now contained in a special suit designed by the agency in order for him to physically interact with others and protect his spirit from deteriorating.
He was sent by the BPRD headquarters to keep tabs on Hellboy's team and their actions with regards to solving cases and also to human exposure. When in an ectoplasmic state, Dr. Krauss has the ability to possess and have control of anything from locker doors to dead trolls and mechanical things.
Wink is a giant cave troll with an enormous detachable metal right fist which is attached to a chain and can be used as a projectile. This mythical creature served as the henchman and bodyguard for Prince Nuada, the Elf Prince of the Underworld and twin brother of Princess Nuala. Built for fighting, Mr. Wink is one character not to mess around with. He has quite an unnatural physical strength and physique, and was one of the more formidable opponents Hellboy has faced head on.
But unfortunately for Mr. Wink, Hellboy's Right Hand of Doom destroyed his artificial metal fist and it got lodged between two spiked metal rollers, dragging him to a crushing death.
The villain of Hellboy 2, this evil elf Prince is a sight to behold. Brimming with a pale malevolence this action figure thrills and chills with supernatural menace.
