I expect COVID had something to do with delays. Even Apples IPhone 12 was not immune...

Just about all of this stuff comes from China. With the trade disputes and now Covid, it’s not surprising that there are delays. What’s so frustrating is that no one really seems confident we’ll see any of this stuff. I’d get the Batman 66, Scooby, HB, and Popeye stuff if available. But it might wind up being another Funko situation.

All Mezco has to do is give an update and be upfront. Just ignoring it leads to doubt.

This is what the issue was with the Funko stuff. We were promised stuff and it never came to pass. There are tons of pre-orders for stuff that is set to come out by the end of the year all the way up until next summer on many different sites for other Mezco lines included their 1:12 line and some other stuff. If they had any faith in this line...we would already have had pre-orders for it on other sites.

Sounds like you don't expect these to ever be made either.
I'm pretty sure Mezco's track record is good, they don't often continue a line beyond the first release, and I'm no expert but I don't recall anything they've advertised not coming out eventually. But having said that I do have a lot of doubts because there has been no mention of it since over a year ago, and I don't think their introductory figures from THE ADDAMS FAMILY did much-- a shame because the figures looked great, but I guess the movie was mediocre.

My personal attitude is I have too much stuff already, I'd buy these if they were available but I'm not disappointed if they drop the ball.

Addams family stuff was sold as two packs and did not do as well as thought....Space Ghost got released but as a Toy Fair exclusive...why the hell have Toy Fair exclusives.....Scooby Doo, Batman 66 and Classic Superman are bound never to happen.....

Sorry to jump back in here but I just sent this to Mezco ontheir Facebook page:

"You guys celebrated Batman Day on September 19...but when will we get news about the 5 points Batman 1966 figures that were shown at SDCC 2019 that had a release of Summer 2020...it is almost October and no one has preorders yet? Has this line been cancelled and if it has....can you please sell the license to someone else since you are the second company in a row that has promised 3 3/4" Batman '66 figures and failed to produce them."

For myself, the Addams Family figures were the least interesting to me. I thought they were great, but I am not interested in that look. Had they been based on the TV show, I would have bitten. I would support all the other 5 points figures Mezco has shown if only I couldnn

    https://www.mezcotoyz.com/5-points is the place where they should show up. There is a preorder right now for the Warriors which runs $50. Mezco is really weird right now. There are some items that they offer preorders for which still haven't been released yet and others that show up on the market a month later.
