It’s Popeye VS Oxblood Oxheart In Mezco’s Latest ‘5 Points’ Box Set

Mezco

That’s all he can takes, and he can’t takes no more! Popeye the Sailor faces off against the brutish boxer Oxblood Oxheart in this 5 Points action figure boxset from Mezco!
This collection isn’t just a couple of figures in a box; it turns into an entire diorama, including a boxing ring and a crowd full of classic Popeye characters. The figures are 3.75″ scale, and the set is priced at $44. Not too bad for a recreation of the classic ’30s comic strip. Expect this to ship out between December and February 2023.
As the name implies, these figures have limited articulation—only five points in total: head, arms, and legs. Sometimes old-school is the best option when you don’t want to ruin the overall look of an action figure with needless joints.

Ding ding ding! Popeye & Oxheart are punching their way through the 5 Points line! Straight from the 1933 comic strip pages, this boxed set includes Popeye, Oxheart, and a boxing ring playset – it’s a total knockout! Once assembled, the boxing ring features a raised platform and a roaring crowd in the background, ready to see Popeye & Oxheart brawl!
The boxset includes the following:

  • Popeye – Strong to the finish! The Sailor Man is ready to rumble in his boxing shorts and gloves
  • Oxheart – the giant heavyweight champ who loves to throw down in the ring.
  • Boxing ring – grab a ringside seat and watch Popeye give Oxheart the ol’ one-two!
  • Two (2) display bases

Popeye’s brawl with Oxheart was adapted into a live-action film from Paramount in 1980, starring the late Robin Williams. Oxheart was played by Canadian actor and producer Peter Bray, who passed away in 2007.
