Mezco Reveal The Spirit Figures


The Spirit Interviews

New The Spirit Figures have been announced by Mezco Toys, Hot Toys and DC Direct but which do you think are the best?

My money is on Hot Toys who are generally considered to be the masters of the 1/6 scale market, but Mezco's 12 Vinyl figure also sounds like it could be a good contender, and their 7-inch figures?

The jury still out on these and until we get to see some more pics and images we'll have to wait and see.

The movie is an adaption of the legendary comic strip, WILL EISNER'S THE SPIRIT which is a classic action-adventure-romance story.

The Spirit is the story of a former rookie cop who returns mysteriously from the dead as the SPIRIT (Gabriel Macht) of the title to fight crime from the shadows of Central City.

His arch-enemy, the OCTOPUS (Samuel L. Jackson), however has different plans and is intent on wiping out the Spirit's beloved city as he pursues his own version of immortality.

Written and directed by genre-twister Frank Miller (creator of 300 and SIN CITY.) it is due to be released on Christmas Day, and looks to be one of the holiday hits this season.

This first series contains 5 dynamic The Spirit figures from Mezco includes:

Mezco 12-inch The Spirit Vinyl Figure

DC Direct 12-inch The Spirit Figures

Hot Toys 12-inch The Spirit figures

Hot Toys 12-inch The Spirit Octopus Figure

  • The Spirit
  • The ultimate superhero, The Spirit has mysteriously returned from the dead, much like Lazarus, and taken on a vigilante crusade to eradicate the lawless elements of Central City with the blessing of the police commissioner.

    He was once an ordinary man, a promising police officer named Detective Denny Colt who was cold-heartedly murdered by the criminals that he puts behind bars.

    Now that he has somehow found a way to come back and become a superhero, he has become a newfound headache and fear for the underworld criminals by bringing right to their doorstep his own form of justice.

  • The Octopus
  • He is considered as one of the most deadly nemesis of The Spirit.

    With a mysterious past of his own, Octopus possesses above average human strength to fight his opponents and is also a devious criminal mastermind.

    He has this penchant of killing any witnesses that sees his face, as if there is anything to see in the first place.

    His goal of wiping out the entire population of Central City is actually his own translation of achieving immortality, whatever that is.

  • Sand Seref
  • Every superhero has their weakness and The Spirit is no exception to this rule. Just like Samson and Delilah, this is how The Spirit and the alluring Sand Saref’s childhood love relationship began. But it was said that their relationship was torn apart when Sand’s father was accidentally killed by one of The Spirit’s relatives. From then on, Sand’s hatred for the authorities grew and her thirst for the ultra luxurious life grew to the point that she was drawn to the life of crime.

    Irresistibly beautiful but ice-cold within, Sand has mastered the art of seducing wealthy men and marrying them for their money. In the process she accumulated a vast amount of wealth, power, and influence.

    She has achieved an international status in the criminal underground with her activities involvement in illegal transactions.

    Although she may have grown cold as ice, Sand still has a warm spot for The Spirit due to their history together.
