NECA Sneak Peeks
The team at NECA is well known for keeping their fans in the loop about their upcoming products, so it should come as very little surprise that this week collectors were given a glimpse at not one, not two, but three brand new collectibles that will be coming our way from NECA next year!
From their fan favorite line based on the ‘ALIEN’ franchise comes the all new ‘ALIEN Newborn’ from ‘ALIEN: Resurrection’! This figure looks pretty sizable and should perfectly scale with the rest of the 7″ ‘ALIEN’ toyline from NECA. The ALIEN Newborn is expected to hit stores in Spring 2019 alongside a new version of Ellen Ripley from ‘ALIEN Resurrection’ and a ‘Resurrection’ Xenomorph!
NECA also provided new information and images for their upcoming ‘God Of War’ figure 2-pack that features ‘Ultimate’ versions of Kratos and his son Atreus! Kratos is by and large a reissue of the single release of the character, but includes an additional new headsculpt plus some new accessories! Atreus is an entirely new figure, making this a set most ‘God Of War’ fans would want to pick up and definitely worth double-dipping on that Kratos figure if you already have one. This two pack is due out in January, you can check the full solicitation from NECA below!
After a decade of bestselling God of War games, it is a new beginning for Kratos. His vengeance against the gods of Olympus far behind him, Kratos now lives as a man in the lands of Norse Gods and monsters. It is in this harsh, unforgiving world that he must fight to survive – and teach his son to do the same. This Ultimate 7” scale action figure 2-pack includes Kratos and his son Atreus. Kratos features a new aggressive head sculpt, new Mimir head on right hip, new gauntlets, new hands, new collapsed shield, new blades, and new fire and frost effects for weapons and hands, as well as 36 points of articulation. The all-new Atreus has over 25 points of articulation and comes with bow and arrows. Packaged in a display-friendly deluxe window box with opening flap.
And finally, last but far from least, NECA just announced yet another new variant of their ‘Ultimate Pennywise’ figure from Stephen King’s ‘It’ (2017)! This new figure is the fourth ‘Ultimate Pennywise’ variant released so far, with this version known as the ‘Dancing Clown’ edition. This version might be the best one yet, including four interchangeable heads, alternative hands, and even a set of alternative articulated insect arms! Ultimate Pennywise ‘The Dancing Clown’ is due to release in Spring 2019. Check the full release from NECA below!
From the acclaimed 2017 horror IT Movie, drawn from the pages of Stephen King’s original novel, NECA presents #Pennywise: The Dancing Clown!
Based on Bill Skarsgård’s portrayal of the nightmare-inducing clown, this 7″ scale figure has been painstakingly detailed to be as accurate to Pennywise’s ornate costume as possible, and is presented in an Ultimate format with special packaging and LED lights inside one of the heads. This version features 4 head sculpts, 3 of which are all-new heads: “Judith” Painting Head, “Emerging Arms” Head, and Light-Up “Deadlights” Head with LED light inside the mouth. The figure also includes interchangeable articulated insect arms, interchangeable forearms, and 2 pairs of hands.
The special window box packaging has a fold down flap in homage to the Dancing Clown scene from the film. Uses button cell batteries, included.
