Mezco is digging up Nosferatu and giving him a little makeover. Count Orlok had a previous release in the One:12 Collective figures, donning his typical black eyes and pale skin. This time, however, the legendary vampire is seeing red, literally.

The company is paying homage to a time just before Mezco existed. Back when Aztech Toyz was the new kid on the block, changing the collectibles market just as MacFarlane Toys did in the mid-’90s.

Nosferatu is priced at $95 and will be crawling out of his coffin in the first quarter of this year. Unfortunately, the original release of this creature of the night has been sold out for a while.

The One:12 Collective Nosferatu returns with hellhounds, plague ridden rodents, and an unquenchable bloodlust. He wears a frock coat, tights, and leather-like shoes underneath his removable cloak-cape with detachable “Coachman’s collar” and cap from the 1922 silent film. The Count also features three nightmare-inducing head portraits capturing his inhuman visage.

The vampire’s features and accessories include:

  • One:12 Collective body with over 20 points of articulation
  • Three (3) head portraits
  • Hand painted authentic detailing
  • Approximately 17cm tall
  • Seven (7) interchangeable hands
  • One (1) pair of posing hands (L&R)
  • One (1) pair of holding hands (L&R)
  • One (1) pair of grabbing hands (L&R)
  • One (1) pointing hand (L)
  • Coachman’s hat (removable)
  • Cloak cape with detachable Coachman’s collar (removable)
  • Frock coat
  • Shirt and tights
  • Hanker-tie neck wrap
  • Leather-like shoes
  • One (1) lantern
  • One (1) eerie mist FX
  • Two (2) wolves
  • Three (3) bats
  • Six (6) rats
  • One (1) One:12 Collective display base with logo
  • One (1) One:12 Collective adjustable display post

Mezco is no stranger to this classic depiction of the vampire. During the Aztech Toyz days before Mezco was created, the company produced a line of toys based on early horror icons. These included Count Orlok, Renfield, Cesare, and Dr. Caligari. The figures were highly detailed and very stylized. I hope Mezco brings back a few of these characters for the One:12 Collective.
