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.
