Josie and the Pussycats Boxed Set from Mezco Toyz

Are you ready to rock?

Straight from the pages of the classic Archie Comics series comes Josie and the Pussycats.

Part of the Mezco Toyz 5 Points series, this all-new boxed set contains three figures, a wide range of accessories, and a retro play set diorama that recreates the Pussycats’ iconic stage.

While still retaining the look-and-feel of the articulated action figures that defined play in the 1970s and 1980s, Mezco Toyz has updated these classic characters with everything from modern sculpting to interchangeable parts – thus offering collectors and fans the very best of both worlds.

Here’s what Mezco Toyz shares about this all-new set:

Josie and the Pussycats featured an all-girl pop band that toured the world with their entourage, getting mixed up in all sorts of adventures and mysteries.

Josie – the level-headed leader and co-founder of the Pussycats who is known for being cool, calm, and collected during moments of chaos. Josie comes with a pair of interchangeable arms so that she can hold her signature instrument, a guitar.

Melody – the bubbly and sometimes absent-minded cofounder of the Pussycats who is known for speaking in a sing-song voice. Melody comes with a pair of interchange arms and legs so that she can sit and play her signature instrument, the drums.

Valerie – the main songwriter of the Pussycats who is known for being quick-tempered. Valerie comes with a pair of interchangeable arms so that she can hold her signature instruments, tambourines.

5 Points are Mezco’s upgrade to the articulated action figures of yesteryear. These highly detailed, poseable action figures feature some of pop culture’s most familiar faces, both old and new.

5 Points Josie and the Pussycats Boxed Set is packaged in a collector-friendly box, designed with collectors in mind.

Created by Dan DeCarlo, Josie and the Pussycats was published by Archie Comics beginning in 1963. Hanna-Barbera Productions would then bring the rockin’ girl group to the small screen with a brand-new Saturday morning cartoon that ran from 1970 until 1972. The comic would continue to be published until 1982 before getting a second series, set within the New Riverdale universe, in September 2016. A live-action adaption was released to the big screen by MGM in 2001, and the band appeared on the popular drama series Riverdale on The CW.

Clearly, even after 60 years, fans can’t get enough of Josie and the Pussycats.

Available for pre-order now directly through Mezco Toyz and select specialty toy retailers, the Josie and the Pussycats Boxed Set is priced at $55 USD and slated for release between October and December of 2023.
