The old school vibe of Quentin Tarantino’s latest wild west movie doesn’t just extend to the director’s trademark styles or it setting—it extends to the merchandise, too. Fluffy, oversized coats for everyone!
It was one of the first NES games to include the well-known Konami code (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A) and now thanks to NECA, Contra fans can finally own action figure versions of the game’s main characters: Private First Class Bill Rizer and Lance Bean.
First of all, I have no idea how I didn’t notice before that Alien’s facehuggers have elongated fingernails on their limbs. Secondly, this thing is both amazing and totally horrifying at the same time.
It’s been a fantastic year for Alien fans when it comes to toys. NECA have been churning out awesome figures, most notably the first ever
Jones the Cat
Ripley figure to use Sigourney Weaver’s likeness, and a coll figure based on her Aliens look. Now Aliens Ripley is getting a rad toy to play with: The Power Loader!
NECA have had the license to make Terminator toys for so long, it’s bizarre to think that we’re only just getting a Sarah Connor figure from them. It looks like it’s worth the wait though, because this is pretty much the ultimate badass Linda Hamilton figure you could ever want.
Now that Batman: Arkham Knight, the latest Batman game from Rocksteady, is nearly here, everyone is showing off their gaming-inspired merchandise. Leading the charge is this fantastic 1/4 scale Batman from NECA, who looks immensely detailed, right down to his delicately sculpted Bat-butt. Wait, what?
It’s a damn good job Pacific Rim’s Gipsy Danger is such a cool robot, otherwise getting like, the billionth Gispy Danger figure in NECA’s sublime toy line based on the movie would be very annoying at this point. I mean, it still is a little annoying, but when Gipsy can look this great, it’s easy to forgive that.
We’ve known it’s been coming for a while, but here it is in the fully coloured, plastic flesh: NECA’s latest Ripley is here to kick action figure ass and look like a little plastic Sigourney Weaver while doing so.
I mean, Alien or not, what else are you going to put eggs in other than an egg carton?
During Pacific Rim’s opening montage, protagonist Raleigh Beckett briefly laments that Humanity has turned their fear of the monstrous Kaiju into the cute toys seen above. But now you can own these adorable little Vinyl figures, so honestly who cares what a fictional character thinks of them? Gimme Gimme Gimme.
San Diego Comic Con is just over two months away, and you know what that means? It’s time to unveil the oodles of Con-exclusive merchandise that’ll be available. NECA’s kicking off the wallet-tempting with a take on a retro toy idea that doesn’t fall into some of the pitfalls of the recent “retro style” boom.
We’ve known for a while that Striker Eureka would be NECA’s next plus sized Pacific Rim toy — but now that the figure is hitting shelves next week, the company have released more pictures of the toy, and it’s looking rather lovely indeed.
I mean yeah, he has a shotgun, but the first revealed Terminator Genisys figure from NECA could just as easily double as an "Old Man Arnie" figure, regardless of the fact he's meant to be a Killer Robot. In fact, now I just kind of want an Arnold Schwarzenegger toy line. Think of all the Gubernatorial variants!
NECA's recently revealed gigantic Big Chap toy already looked amazing, but new pictures of the prototype figure have been released, showing off even more articulation — and even a potential Aliens version of everyone's favourite Xenomorph.
Like seriously, they're living up to the Big Chap name on this one. It's massive, and it looks gorgeous!
He might not look quite like he's just stepped out of a video game and on-to your desk, but the cool pixelation effect on this Godzilla figure's paint scheme certainly makes him stand out as a stylish King of Kaiju!
You wait so long for an Ellen Ripley figure that actually has Sigourney Weaver's likeness, and two come along at once! NECA have unveiled their next wave of Alien toys, and that recently revealed Power Loader is going to get a Ripley to go with it.
