I’m sending Roy Burns…to Comic Con

dscf05101 Someone had to do it. It’s just never happened. Someone had to make Roy Burns in action figure form. So, thanks to Mezco, I took a chance and made it happen in a sense. What the heck am I rambling about you may ask? I’m talking about the upcoming Mez-its art show brought to you by Mezco Toyz!

Mez Its are a line of figures by Mezco that feature various movie characters in an exaggerated cartoony state. Big heads, short limbs, and a very animated look, the Mez-its typically come in much smaller 2-3 inch form. Diving into the 6 inch market, thanks in part to the popularity of lines such as “Mighty Muggs” from Hasbro, Mez-its are due to get a size increase in the coming months.

What does this have to do with Roy Burns, myself, and Comic Con? And…what is a Mez-its art show? Mezco has decided to do something rather interesting this year at Comic Con. They have invited 60 artists with the chance to participate in their Mez-its art show. 60 people were presented a completely blank 6 inch acrylic Mez-its action figure to customize in any way they wanted (with few guidelines). Customizers were instructed to mold, add onto, or modify the Mez-it in any way they chose to do so.  The 60 custom Mez-its will be displayed at San Diego Comic Con next month, and then once again at the New York event! Having longed for the day when Roy Burns, the (highly underrated) Jason imposter from Friday the 13th: A New Beginning, could be perched upon my shelf, I decided that Roy would be taking his rightful place in a display at Comic Con! So without further ado, I present to you a gallery of pics ranging from me actually working on the figure, to my final creation; The Roy Burns 6 inch Mez-it!

NOTE: If any of you happen to be attending San Diego Comic Con next month, and you happen to get a pic of the Mez-its art show display, be sure to take pictures and send them my way at tony@benevolentstreet.com! Thanks!

  1. I think the Advair commercial and this will make him the Friday the 13th Star of the year. Totally passing anyone in the newest movie.

  2. Nice work! Glad to finally see a part V figure. Now we just need part VIII

  3. Although I am not a collector of Jason dolls, I do think that the pseudo Jason should get some sort of rrelease in action figure form. I know a lot of fans want to forget he even exists, but he’s out there, waiting….

  4. hey at shocktilyoudrop there is news on the friday sequel, set to take place in the snow..if greenlit it should come out august 13.2010

  5. A part V and VIII Jason figure needs to happen. I hope a serious accurate approach is taken at some point. Cool looking figure though.

  6. I was looking at a website called horrorbid.com one time, and they had 13 inch custom Part 5 & 8 action figures. They looked a little bit like the sideshow toys figures, except they were custom made. I looked on the website recently (just a few days ago), and I didn’t see them listed anymore. However, they did have a cool custom remake Jason action figure that looked cool. I’m not sure if it is still listed, but it might still be there.

  7. looks amazing.. great job
