Hellboy (AKA Hellboy Movie Figures) (Mezco)



Hellboy
Mezco
2004

Hellboy is a highly underrated comic book movie if you ask us. Because the character isn't necessarily mainstream, or at least wasn't prior to the movie, many people passed on it, and those said people missed out. Ron Perlman captures the look of Hellboy perfectly, and as an actor comes through as someone who is actually enjoying playing the part on screen.

The film is based off of the character's first mini series, Hellboy: Seed of Destruction from Mike Mignola and John Byrne, published by Dark Horse Comics. Since its original inception, Hellboy has expanded to numerous other story arcs in comic, television and movie form.

To coincide with the movie's release, Mezco produced a small line of action figures. Variants were the name of the game, most of which contrived of various incarnations of Hellboy with simple changes to his mouth position or various clothing.


SERIES 1
Abe Sapien*Hellboy (with Big Gun)*Hellboy (with Trenchcoat)


SERIES 1
Hellboy (with Trenchcoat) Variant Chase with Teeth Showing*Kroenen
Rasputin with Hellbaby*Sammael


SERIES 1.5
Anung Un Rama*Abe Sapien (Battle Damaged)*Hellboy (with Stockade)



SERIES 1.5
Hellboy (with Trenchcoat - Open Hand)*Hellboy (with Trenchcoat - Closed Hand)
Officer Kroenen*Hellboy (Shirtless with Dumbbell)

In addition to the regular waves of figures, Previews released their own package variations. These were denoted with small stickers which labeled them as being from Previews. The figures were no different from those released in the regular line.

The last two pieces produced were San Diego Comic Con exclusives. Much like the other variants in the series, the only difference between the two are the mouth positions.
