Mezco Releases Mega Scale Krampus Plush: Naughty Children On High Alert
April 17, 2013

Gruss Vom Krampus!

 Mezco presents folklore legend, plush Krampus!

MezcoKrampusPlushNew York- This oversized Krampus is 12″ tall from the tips of his “devilish” horns to the points of his cloven hooves. This sinfully adorable mythic creature is a hugably plump plush that is perfect for those who enjoy the darker side of the holiday spirit.

Mezco’s Krampus plush doll has all the trademark characteristic of the fabled creature with horned head, pointed tongue that sticks out, hoofed feet, and tail.

According to tradition, this beast is responsible for “handling” all the naughty children during the holiday season, gathering them and taking him back to his lair. Krampus, an Austrian legendary creature was outlawed in 1934 but the ban was lifted and has become a holiday phenomenon gaining worldwide popularity for his devilish representation of the holiday spirit.

“Krampus has really been busy recently” said Mezco’s resident Krampus enthusiast, Mike Drake, “He’s appeared on Scooby Doo, The Venture Brothers, The Colbert Report, the popular Grimm Fairy Tales comic, and in a cool series of bumpers for G4. NPR recently reported several Pennsylvania towns are even organizing holiday Krampus parades. It’s a good time for Krumpus…but a bad time to be naughty.”

Mezco’s plush Mega Scale Krampus arrives in stores in October, but is available for pre-order now at finer online retailers.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
