TOY NEWS FOR 1/18/2013 - MEZCO - BREAKING BAD - 6" WALTER WHITE FIGURE COMING SOON

UPDATE 1/31/2013 - WALTER WHITE AS "HEISENBERG" FIGURE SCULPT!

Trevor has given us another look at his Walter White sculpts from Mezco's upcoming Breaking Bad figure line. Here we see a more finished version of Walt in his lab suit along with the "Heisenberg" sculpt.

UPDATE 1/26/2013 - WALTER WHITE IN LAB SUIT FIGURE SCULPT!

Sculptor Trevor Grove has posted this incredible look at another of his Breaking Bad figure sculpts-- this time of Walter White in his yellow lab uniform.

According to Trevor, there will be added articulation (YES!) as well as accessories like Walt's glasses and, I assume, some lab equipment.

UPDATE 1/20/2013: I've just received word from the man himself that a good deal of the Mezco Breaking Bad product will be sculpted by the ├╝ber talented Trevor Grove! (You can check out his work here-- http://trevorgrove.deviantart.com/) As you can see from this pic of his Walter White bobble-head sculpt below, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better likeness for Bryan Cranston!

Now I know this figure is going to ROCK.

 This I'm very glad to see.

After Mezco recently announced that they'd be doing collector's merchandise from Breaking Bad, I was hoping it wouldn't just be lunch boxes and bobble heads. I was hoping for some figures.

Well, I don't know how many are planned, but at least we know that we'll be getting Walter White in his "Heisenberg" persona.

Details on the sculpting and articulation on the figure are non-existent at the moment. All we have to go on for now is this digital image that Mezco has released, presumably of the figure's final design.

While Mezco isn't on par with NECA (yet), they are an extremely talented group of folks and a very high quality toy company. Hopefully-- fingers crossed-- they understand that likeness of actor Bryan Cranston is key here! Without that, you've got nothing. Even if the figure had the best paint and articulation and plastics that you could ever hope for-- without that likeness, then what's the point of even getting the license? Otherwise it's just a guy dressed like Walter White. So take your time Mezco and do it right! I have no doubt that you can!
