You know what's cool? When it comes to movie franchises the toy world knows what's badass and what's not. For instance ... NECA Toys is still pumping out A Nightmare on Elm Street figures using Robert Englund's likeness and not the recent Jackie Earle Haley meatball head from the pitiful remake.
The predator franchise was put back on track with Nimrod Antal's latest entry entitled simply Predators, and the good folks over at NECA are taking full advantage of the interplanetary hunter's return to form by doling out a new line of highly detailed figured from all three of the films.
The Mogwai must be kept away from bright light, never made wet and never, ever be fed after midnight. Not so sure if those rules apply to NECA's new plastic renditions of these adorably evil creatures but they're so lifelike they just might!
There have been many, and we mean many figures based upon the sleep-time boogeyman, Freddy Krueger. But we can guarantee you these are the damned best we've ever seen! Welcome back oh bastard son!
NECA Toys has long been one of the best outfits around in terms of doling out the most badass horror collectibles to be found anywhere. Our walls are already adorned with their stuff but it looks as if we're gonna have to make a little more room for these new Scream 4 figures!
As mentioned previously, NECA's new line of Ghostface figures that are set for release just ahead of the new Scream 4 includes a zombie version, and today we have an early look at the guy.
Now that Predators has (for the most part) gotten the Predator franchise back on the right track, everyone's favorite intergalactic hunter is enjoying some much needed time in the spotlight, especially as far as horror collectibles go.
In honor of the original Scream, which opened 14 years ago today, NECA has provided our first look at their new 7-inch Ghostface action figure. NECA's currently running a holiday media blitz on Twitter so be sure to follow @NECA_TOYS. Here's how they describe the new Ghostface:
Have a Predator fan on your holiday season shopping list? Then holy shit are we about to show you something guaranteed to get them drooling! Oh, NECA! You've done it again! As Per Nomad's Idle Hands Blog:
From Idle Hands, our man Nomad's home away from home, comes word that as Scream 4 prepares to hit theaters, NECA wants to make sure you've got a little 7-inch Ghostface in hand at the theater on opening night. And you'll have two different models to choose from.
Remember a few weeks ago NECA teased their new Predators action figures with an image of three silhouetted hunters? Well it's time to fill in the damned blanks with a boatload of plastic badassery!
Now here is something we've been waiting for FOREVER! A deluxe collectible from The Exorcist featuring little Reagan strapped to her bed and thoroughly possessed. Pretty cool, no? But wait .... there's more!
What would Jason be without his machete? Michael without his butcher knife? Pinhead without his numerous implements of torture? Probably okay, but Freddy? He just wouldn't be the same without his trademark glove!
NECA Toys is known for making its collectibles as realistic and detailed as possible. So with a new line of Freddy figures coming soon to celebrate Samuel Bayer's A Nightmare on Elm Street remake for Platinum Dunes, the question beckons ... what little parts will they be coming with that could be harmful to small children if chewed or swallowed?
Nomad just reported in with a slew of new A Nightmare on Elm Street goodies for you guys to ummm ... sink your claws into! As well as figures based upon the new Platinum Dunes remake that's looming on the horizon, NECA is also paying its respect to the original franchise with a new and exciting collectible that makes us wonder how no one ever thought to do it before!
