Mezco Toyz offered two One:12 Collective figure exclusives at this years San Diego Comic-Con, one was this Batman Beyond figure, and the other was The Punisher Special Ops Edition. Terry McGinnis, also known as Batman Beyond’s futuristic caped crusader – has become a beloved character amongst DC Comics fans since his 1999 debut. Terry McGinnis took up the mantle of Batman after Bruce Wayne become too old to continue fighting crime, and it was revealed that Amanda Waller stole Bruce’s DNA and impregnated a woman that closely resembles Bruce’s mother, as this story was told in the Justice League Unlimited animated series, and this was done because Amanda Weller believed that the world needed a Batman.
The One:12 Collective ‘Dark Knight of Tomorrow’ abandons the definitive black and gray Batsuit for an all-black, high tech scheme, punctuated by a bright red bat symbol on the chest. Batman Beyond comes complete with two head portraits, his signature red wings, batarangs, and booster jet effects that create dynamic flying poses.
Terry McGinnis, a young athletic student, assumes the mantle as Batman after Bruce Wayne’s health begins to deteriorate. Tutored by Bruce and aided by a new high-tech suit that augments his abilities, Terry continues to defend Gotham as crime and corruption rear their ugly heads once again.

Batman Beyond is a home run for Mezco, as well as fans that attended San Diego Comic-Con and for the lucky ones that were able to obtain him either at the show, or online pre-orders. If not, your only option is eBay as he’s sold out. The figure is simply incredible, and fans and Mezco One:12 Collective Collectors will know the pure level of detail that has been going into these figures, and Batman Beyond is a great example of how good One:12 really is.
The figure comes loaded with sculpt details and fabric goods, like a lot, including some incredible line work on top of line work, and the overall result is simply stunning. The head sculpts are made of plastic, and has line work on the helmet, pointy and sharp bat ears, and he comes with two different heads – a closed mouth, and a grinning mouth. The batsuit itself covering his chest, arms and legs are made of fabric, and sculpted over the fabric are detailed lines that glow and stands out nicely. Sculpted over his chest is the Batman Beyond logo, which is in a metallic red and brights and shines. The forearms and hands are made of plastic, and features some great line work themselves as well as retracting claw gloves (these are sharp) on the bottom of the forearms. Around his waist is his utility belt that is made of plastic, and is painted in light and dark grey, with a red button in the circular part in front. His boots are made of plastic, and have the detailed line work as well.
The backpack on his back, which can be removed to replace it with his wings. The wings are made of plastic, and include detailed sculpted and paint applications, including red on the front with black trim, and black on the back with sculpted details at the center of it. The edges of the wings are sharp, so this is definitely not for kids.
Also included with Batman Beyond are three batarangs, three pairs of interchangeable hands (fists, batarang holding hands, and posing claw hands), and two booster jets that fit on the bottom of his feet. In addition, the wings, two head sculpts, and acrylic figure stand and logo base are also included. The acrylic display stand slides into the base after the peg on the base is removed, and Batman Beyond can be placed in a flying position to showcase the jets.
Overall, Batman Beyond is an incredible detailed figure with tons of sculpted details, strong paint applications and great accessories that fans will love. We particularly like the sculpted details on this figure, as well as the great likeness.
