Alex DeLarge is further immortalized in an incredible action figure from Mezco’s One:12 Collective.

One of the more memorable movies of Stanley Kubrick was A Clockwork Orange. But it was Malcolm McDowell’s portrayal of Alex DeLarge that really made the film.

Mezco has done an excellent job giving us a 6″ version of Alex. The detail is downright amazing. The figure comes in a cloth costume that’s simple, yet detailed at the same time. It really mirrors the film. There are details like the eyeball cufflinks and the codpiece Alex wears. You can even see the stitching on the boots.

The face sculpt is pretty impressive. It really looks like the character, right down to the iconic eye makeup. The hat doesn’t come off but that’s OK with me.  He has his cane, and the knife that he pulls out. I was hoping that the knife could be stored in the cane like in the movie,  but that’s not the case here. It’s 2 separate pieces. He also comes with a glass of milk

Alex also comes 2 additional heads. One that’s a masked head and the other is one of Alex all beaten up. They are easy to remove and replace. And nice level of details here. The paint apps are clean with no slop at all. 

Alex comes with 7 different hands: set of fists. set of open hands. set of grasping hands. and one hand that is designed to only hold the glass of milk.

As with all One:12 figures, Alex comes with a stand. He does look a little off center when you place him on the stand. I wasn’t 100% happy with that. Plus he comes with a “flying” stand. While I understand that this stand is common with all the One:12’s, I just couldn’t see a purpose for it here. 

And of course, he comes with a ziplock bag for all the accessories. 

All in all this a great figures. I highly recommend it. 

Until the next time, viddy well, little brother. Viddy well.
