The 2012 San Diego Comic-Con is just a little over a month away, which means the toy companies are starting to announce their exclusives for the big show. On tap today we have early looks at three of NECA’s SDCC exclusives:

First we have Hero from the Sky Ash from Evil Dead 2.

Hard to believe, but it’s been 25 years since director Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead 2 was released. One of the best cult horror films of all time, it introduced us to the Deadites, the Necronomicon, and most of all, to Bruce Campbell’s character, Ash, the wise-crackin’ S-Mart employee who saws off his own hand and replaces it with a chainsaw. He’s one of our all-time favorite cinematic heroes. How could he not be? Who wouldn’t love that face?

Hero from the Sky Ash captures the young Mr. Campbell as he was at the end of the film. Bloodied, haggard, confused, having killed his girlfriend and a Deadite version of himself, terrified and mysteriously transported through time, Ash emerged in what would become the setting for Army of Darkness (another classic; go watch it!) and was faced with a whole new round of Deadites to re-kill.

We’ve done Ash before in a series of Evil Dead 2 7″ action figures, but Hero from the Sky Ash — aside from being SDCC exclusive — perfectly captures one of the most important moments in Evil Dead 2. A sepia-toned paint job brings out not just nostalgia for the 25th Anniversary of Evil Dead 2 but also the desert Ash found himself (and his car, oddly enough) transported to. Just look at the surprise on that face.

But Ash here is more than just a great chin! Check out our Hero from the Sky’s full articulation below:

  • Ball Jointed Neck
  • Ball Jointed Shoulders
  • Insert Molded Ball Hinged Elbows
  • Ball Jointed Wrists
  • Ball Jointed Chest
  • Ball Jointed Waist
  • V-Crotch
  • Mid-Thigh Swivels
  • Insert Molded Ball Hinged Knees
  • Ball Jointed Ankles
  • Chainsaw Swivels
  • Shotgun Stores in Holster on Figure’s Back

    But there’s more – Hero from the Sky Ash comes in clamshell packaging with an exclusive unique display base. Let’s get groovy!

    Next up is the Cloaked City Hunter Predator.

    As seen in 1990′s Predator 2, the City Hunter (aka the Ghost Predator) is a leaner, meaner kind of killer, perfectly suited to the drug-filled streets of fictional 1997 Los Angeles, in which Colombian and Jamaican cartels are at war with the police. Set to a 7″ scale, our Cloaked City Hunter is an answer to the first-ever City Hunter figure, which was included in Predators Series 4 late last year. UNLIKE the regular City Hunter, this Cloaked version is totally exclusive to SDCC and has the sticker to prove it. If you can’t make it to San Diego this year, though, don’t worry; we’ll have some news on special opportunities forthcoming after the Con.

    Like it’s much-less-invisible brethren, the Cloaked City Hunter is immaculately detailed and accurate to the look and feel of Predator 2. It features over 25 points of articulation, including ball joints in the hips and double-knee joints — because, let’s face it, when you’re chasing down and beheading deadly drug lords in a bizarre future city while Danny Glover tries to track you down and kill you, you want to be as flexible as possible.

    Lastly is the brand-spanking new 2012 Convention Exclusive Marvel HeroClix Giant-Man Super Booster.

    Priced at $39.99, Giant-Man also includes a proportionate Ant-Man HeroClix figure that’s invisible! No, really, like he’s not there. Set to the scale of Giant-Man, you can’t see Henry Pym when he shrinks all the way down to Ant-Man size. Also, when Marvel HeroClix first premiered way back in 2002, a similar Ant-Man was offered at conventions that year, so this Ant-Man makes a perfect bonus piece for Pym as Giant-Man. As you can see below, there’s a base with Ant-Man on it, and you’ll just have to take our word for it that he’s there. You can’t possibly imagine how hard it was to sculpt something so small that it’s invisible to the naked eye.

    Henry Pym (aka Giant-Man) first appeared in Marvel’s Tales to Astonish #56 in 1964, having already made his debut as Ant-Man in Issue #35 two years earlier. Rumors have been kicking around for a while now about a movie in the works, so we thought no better time to debut this Giant-Man Chaos War HeroClix! Like all of the figures in the Chaos War collection, Giant-Man is gorgeously detailed and accurate to the comics.

    I know… Giant-Man isn’t really horror, but c’mon – Invisible Ant-Man? How can you resist?

    Look for more SDCC announcements from NECA (and everyone else) soon!

    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.
