Mezco Toyz is a toy company that makes action figures and other collectibles based on original and licensed properties. Its most popular product is the cult hit toy line Living Dead Dolls. Other popular licensed properties include Family Guy, South Park and Hellboy. Outside of action figures and doll releases, Mezco is also known for their original block-style figures line: Mez-Itz.
Mezco Toyz was created by Michael Markowitz (Mez), the President of Mezco, who maintains himself as the driving force behind all aspects of design and development. Working with the best talents in the toy industry, Mez conceives and directs each line from start to finish.
Mezco Toyz was established in 2000, from the ashes of the short-lived toy production company: Aztech Toyz, which obtained recognition for their stylized line of Silent Screamers action figures; based on classic black and white silent pictures of the beginning of cinema. The Silent Screamers line was renewed as one of the original releases from Mezco.
