#SDCC15: Mutavore and Ultimate Edition Jaeger Join NECA’s Pacific Rim Toy Line

Published

on

If there’s one thing you can always count on it’s that toy company NECA is going to knock the ball right out of the goddamn park when Comic-Con rolls around. In addition to all sorts of exclusives this year, they’ve also shown off a slew of upcoming toys, and today they give some love to Pacific Rim.

First up, NECA’s newest boxed, ultra-deluxe kaiju action figure in the Pacific Rim line is Mutavore, the Category IV kaiju who emerged from the breach and easily broke through Sydney’s Anti-Kaiju Wall.

At over 8″ tall and over 6″ wide, Mutavore is massive – larger than the previously released Trespasser, Scunner and Knifehead. The movie-accurate figure utilizes 100% new tooling, features over 30 points of articulation, and is to scale with their Jaeger action figures.

The company also presents the definitive collector’s version of Striker Eureka. The towering mech from Down Under gets the “Ultimate” treatment, with an all-new body and new articulation.

Its open chest of rockets is actually an interchangeable piece that swaps out to show a fiery missile launch! There’s even a nuclear payload that attaches to the back of the figure.

The 7″ scale Australian mech is made from the actual digital files utilized by ILM in the creation of Pacific Rim for exacting accuracy and detail.

Eureka comes in collector-friendly deluxe window box packaging with opening flap.

Both figures are due out in November. Check them out below!

NECA Announces Ashy Slashy Puppet Replica

Published

on

One of our favorite horror TV shows is Starz’s “Ash vs. Evil Dead,” and one of our favorite moments from the first two seasons is when Ash brings out his “Ashy Slashy” puppet.

If you’re like us and have been wondering when you could get your hands on an Ashy Slashy puppet of your own, today we have good news.

NECA has just announced its prop replica!

You can check out pics of the packaging reveal NECA did over on Facebook below, and then let us know if you’re going to be buying your very own Ash Slashy puppet.

We’ll let you know when the item becomes available for pre-order!

Rundown via NECA:
Every day can be demented play day with your very own Ashy Slashy puppet from Season 2 of Ash vs. Evil Dead! We’ve replicated Ash’s potty-mouthed little doppelganger from the asylum episodes for your (hopefully G-rated) entertainment.

This is a working puppet – insert your hand, and you can move the mouth; plus the arms are poseable thanks to inner articulation. 

Ashy Slashy is approximately 15” tall.

Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and the Xenomorph Getting Their Own 8-Bit Pop Vinyls

Published

on

Funko has released some delightful horror-themed products over the years, but this just takes the cake. They’ve announced a new line of 8-bit Pop Vinyl figures, which will feature pixelated versions of Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and the Xenomorph. I never thought I’d say it, but even Freddy Krueger looks cute.

Freddy and Jason will both come in standard editions, in addition to GameStop exclusives based on how they both appeared in their own NES video games. The Xenomorph will also have a Previews exclusive edition depicting it smeared with acid blood. Have a look at the images below to decide which versions you like best. Most of us would probably like to purchase all six!

These adorable (but still horrible) figures will be available in January, so make sure you don’t go bankrupt over Christmas.
