In the world of film, directors with a creative vision and style that is truly unique are so few and far between. That’s why it is especially exciting that the team at NECA has announced plans to launch an all new line dedicated to bringing the worlds of critically acclaimed fan favorite director Guillermo del Toro to your toy collection! Del Toro is best known for directing a number a horror and fantasy films like ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’, ‘Crimson Peak’, ‘Mimic’, and ‘Pacific Rim’!
The first figures revealed so far for the new ‘Guillermo del Toro Signature Collection’ from NECA are based on some of his most popular Spanish-language films, ‘The Devil’s Backbone’ and ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’. The official statement to announce the line from NECA is below:
We are honored to announce that we will be working on the Guillermo del Toro Signature Collection. Pictured is our recently announced Santi figure from The Devil’s Backbone along with our planned Pan’s Labyrinth figures of the Pale Man and Faun!
In addition to the initial reveal of these figures, NECA has already issued a full release with official photos and product details for the first figure, a 7″ scale Santi from ‘The Devil’s Backbone’!
NECA is thrilled to announce a new collaboration with renowned director, Guillermo del Toro! The new GDT Signature Collection will bring select characters from del Toro’s movies to life in premium action figure format with deluxe added elements.
The first release in the collection is Santi, from the haunting film The Devil’s Backbone. “The one who sighs” is super-poseable and comes with a detailed diorama base featuring the bomb that falls into the courtyard of his orphanage.
NECA already has a history with producing figures for Guillermo del Toro’s films, having just wrapped up their long running figure line for ‘Pacific Rim‘ last year. There is no word yet as to what other Del Toro films we might be able to anticipate figures from, although it seems likely that we can count out the few licensed films like ‘Blade II’ and the ‘Hellboy’ films from being included.
