NECA Is Bringing You The Perfect Pairs
In the last few weeks we have seen a number of new NECA products either previewed or hitting stores based on some of our favorite properties like ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’, ‘Halloween’, and ‘The Predator’! This week NECA is showcasing a number of new items that are coming soon that will act as the perfect complimentary pieces for some of these other releases (while also being super awesome pieces on their own!), making them all the more desirable.
From their 1:4 scale ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ line, we have a new look at the upcoming Foot Soldier figure! The NECA quarter scale Foot Soldier is based on the Foot Soldier’s appearance from the 1990 live-action ‘TMNT’ film, and comes packaged with a load of weapons as well as alternative hands to ensure that he is ready to take on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles at a moments notice! This figure would pair great with the figures of the Turtles themselves, or with the upcoming Shredder figure we previewed last week!
Next up, from the popular requel (reboot-sequel) ‘Halloween (2018)’ NECA is bringing us our first ever Laurie Strode figure! Laurie is based on the likeness of actress Jamie Lee Curtis and includes two interchangeable heads, an alternative right hand, and a small arsenal of weapons including a knife, a pistol, a shotgun, and a rifle. Laurie would pair perfectly with the recently released Michael Meyers figure from ‘Halloween (2018)’ that just hit stores!
Finally we have the all new Assassin Predator from last fall’s ‘The Predator’! This figure is MASSIVE and stands almost a full foot tall as to be properly scaled with the other ‘Predator’ figures from NECA. The NECA Assassin Predator includes two interchangeable heads, two sets of hands, a removable wrist blade, and a removable wrist canon. He would pair perfectly with the recently released Fugitive Predator. Due to his size he is set to release for a whopping $59.99 when he hits stores later this year!
Mezco Toy Fair Teasers
With New York Toy Fair just a few weeks away, the crew at Mezco has begun sharing some teaser images to give fans a small hint of what they might expect to see! There are silhouette previews fo figures from lines like One:12 Collective, Living Dead Dolls, Mega Designer Series, and even a few more that we don’t have much information on yet! Some stand out as kind of obvious (like a few Batmans and what appears to be Hellboy 2018), while others remain cloaked in mystery! Check out all four teaser images below!
Welcome To Mezco’s Nightmare
Even after all of these years, collectors can never seem to get enough Freddy Krueger! Thankfully the team at Mezco has a brand new one in store for you with their massive Mega Scale Talking Freddy Krueger figure from ‘A Nightmare On Elm Street’! This figure is set to stand at a whopping 15″ tall with 11 points of articulation to him. He is rocking a fabric version of Freddy’s classic outfit and even has five built in phrases straight out of the films! The new Mezco Mega Scale Talking Freddy Krueger figure is set to release this summer for around $98. Check out the full solicitation and images below!
A Nightmare On Elm Street – MDS Mega Scale Talking Freddy Krueger Figure
Freddy Krueger, the dream-haunting slasher from the original ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ films, is coming for you!
The MDS Mega Scale Talking Freddy Krueger stands at a frightening 15” tall and says 5 nightmare-inducing phrases from the original films including “You think you was going to get away from me?!” The dream demon is dressed in his infamous striped sweater and fedora. He features a newly sculpted head portrait, razor glove, and 11 points of articulation.
The MDS Mega Scale Talking Freddy Krueger comes packaged in a collector-friendly window box, perfect for display.
