Mezco’s Shazam action figure is an absolute marvel

shazam3-social

With one magic word, and a lot fine craftsmanship, Mezco Toyz has summoned Shazam as part of its One:12 Collective DC Universe series.

Boasting 32 points of articulation and a detailed fabric costume with posable cape, the action figure comes with three portraits (standard, smiling and yelling “Shazam!”), three pairs of interchangeable palms, an attachable lightning bolt, the detached head of Mr. Atom, a Mr. Mind minifigure, and a display stand.

Available for preorder for $75, the Shazam figure is expected to ship between July and August. Between now and then, we can hope they’ll put the rest of the Marvel Family into production.

You mean a Action figure of the real and original Captain Marvel. Which looks awesome.

Exactly Chris. Shazam is the wizard, not the hero. DC needs to stop pandering to Marvel and reclaim the REAL name of the World’s Mightiest Mortal, Captain MARVEL!!!!!!!!

David they’re not “pandering to Marvel”. The court ruling states that they cannot advertise or promote Captain Marvel as “Captain Marvel” though he can still be referred to as that within the comics. So all the books have to be called “Trial of Shazam!” or “Power of Shazam” or something similar (like simpl “Shazam”) and DC decided to just call him that in order to avoid confusion for those who don’t know about the whole story. For those of us who do – you, me, most readers of the site – when they say “Shazam” you know who they mean. For new readers, conflating both Captains Marvel would be very common. Sure, it sucks, and perhaps there’d be a way to take the case back to court to get a new ruling, but as it stands DC is going with the easiest route.

He was officially renamed “Shazam” with the New 52 relaunch. I know, it sucks.

Shazam is one of the best superhero names ever, that’s why it made it’s way into popular vocabulary as a word to express surprise/excitement. And as an extra added bonus DC doesn’t have to call in a team of layers every time they want to use the character. With all of the legal mess aside I think 9 out of 10 people would prefer his name be Shazam if given a choice between the two.

Captain Shazam here looks so GAY!!!! I cannot stand this character and look how faggot looking this figure looks, who the hell likes this fag character? CAPTAIN MARVEL (MAN) FROM MARVEL was the BEST

What's the deal with Chris

Hey Chris!

If you ever thought that Shazam was manly, maybe you should question your own masculinity and sexual orientation. Just saying.
