The soul of Mike Mignola's characters are alive and well in the first wave of the Hellboy II: The Golden Army action figures. The first 6 are all new, ultra articulated, 7 inch figures from Mezco. Each figure features their look from the film but what is ultra cool is that Johann Krauss will finally have his own movie action figure!

Seen here with Hellboy:

 

Abe and Liz:

 

Prince Nuada and Wink are also in this first wave. Prince Nuada has a chilling pale malevolence to him. However, it is his bodyguard Wink, standing at a full 8 inches, that really is a must have for collectors. Wink comes complete with a Tooth Fairy box and a movie accurate mace fist.

 

Wave 2 figures were pending approval on their likenesses so photographs were not permitted. However, in wave 2 there are two more Hellboys, one in all black and another that is wounded. The rest of the line includes Princess Nuada, Goblin and the Angel of Death, which is visible in the ‘Hellboy 2: The Golden Army’ trailer. 

There will be two new Roto-Cast Busts for Hellboy II: The Golden Army. With a reduced price compared to other busts. The bases are not pictured but they will be included with the final product. If you look behind the Right Hand of Doom you will see the packaging for the 7 inch line.

There are also two 18 inch figures scheduled to be released featuring Hellboy and Abe Sapien. Both will have real cloth outfits and more than 10 points of articulation. Mezco does have two waves of 3.75 inch figures for the film. As well as two different B.P.R.D. messenger bags. The Hellboy II: The Golden Army line from Mezco will not disappoint fans of Hellboy or action figure collectors.
