Mezco Toyz Reveals Summer Exclusive: Creature From the Black Lagoon 9inch Glow In The Dark Variant
June 13, 2013

New York- As the world of fandom collectively counts down to the July 18th start of San Diego Comic-Con International 2013, Mezco adds fuel to the flames of excitement by revealing the details of one of their Summer Exclusives:

The Creature From the Black Lagoon 9inch Glow-In-The-Dark Variant figure.

Mezco’s award-winning design team journeyed deep into the unexplored depths of the Amazon jungle searching for fossils…instead they discovered The Creature! Mezco Toyz brings to life The Creature, from Universal’s sci-fi, horror gem, The Creature From The Black Lagoon.

This Creature variant is cast in Glow-In-The-Dark material. The phosphorescent properties of this formulation put past glow items to shame. Like the lure of the mysterious deep-sea angler fish, its powerful incandescence pierces the darkness of even the blackest lagoon.

This iconic scaled terror from the deep stands 9″ tall and captures the intricate detail of the pre-historic gill-man; from his mysterious amphibious eyes, to his claw tipped webbed hands. With 11 points of articulation he’ll be able to take out any scientist who dares to come between him and his true love.

The Creature is packaged in a full color, collector friendly window box perfect for display.

(Photos show Creature under “black light”, actual version may vary.)

This Mezco Summer Exclusive is a Limited Edition of 100 pieces. A limited amount are available online at

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.
