Mezco's next release in the One:12 Collective will be from the Marvel comic universe in the shape of Morbius, the Living Vampire. Morbius was first shown by Mezco at SDCC in 2019 and was slated as a Summer 2020 release. While he is a comic book based release the originally planned release date will have most likely been timed to coincide with the original release date of the Morbius movie from Sony. The Morbius movie has since moved to March 2021 and then forward again in 2022.
The figure will feature three head options, a selection of hands and an impressive looking modular mobile Science Lab crate complete with various components such as test tubes, beaker, microscope, analyser and serum gun. Weapons in the crate include stakes, a hammer and a dagger. This mobile lab piece also includes a light up feature
The pre-orders are open now with a late 2021 release date between September and November.
“I'm not a man to play with bluffs... I mean what I say.”
The One:12 Collective welcomes Morbius, the living vampire!
Morbius wears a fitted bodysuit with a winged cape and features three head portraits, capturing varying degrees of his grisly nature.
The Nobel Prize-winning biochemist comes complete with a multilayer mobile science lab with a light-up function. The removable top layer holds science equipment such as a foldable microscope, handheld hematology analyzer, and removable test tube and beaker, while the bottom layer conceals weapons such as a dagger, customized handgun, and hammer.
While attempting an experimental treatment involving vampire bat DNA and electroshock therapy, Dr. Michael Morbius turns himself into a pseudo-vampire in an effort to cure his rare blood disease. As a result, he develops superhuman powers including enhanced agility, strength, and stamina. With an insatiable lust for human blood, the nightmarish vigilante finds himself torn between his human and monstrous natures.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
