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!
With record snowfall to keep him locked inside with his toys and a new The Wolfman opening in theatres today, of course Nomad turned to his blog to celebrate werewolves by taking a look back at some of the best werewolf figures of the past several years. Nomad's Idle Hands Blog jogs the memory banks with mentions of these furry friends in their non furry format:
The Twilight train roars on, and today it's NECA feeding the fires driving that engine. Prepare for new little boys immortalized in plastic! Will you get the shirtless action figure army you've always dreamed of?
Back in September NECA acquired the majority of the assets of WizKids, Inc., from The Topps Company, Inc., including the award-winning Clix family of games. What does that mean for horror fans? Two potentially awesome new games: Gremlins: Gizmo's Great Escape and Freddy vs. Jason: Forest of Fear. Read on for more details on each.
It seems like only yesterday Mezco unveiled its Clash of the Titans and A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) offerings to the denizens of the toy kingdoms. Now NECA take center stage to show off its 7-inch action figures from both lines.
The 09/09/09 release date of Shane Acker's 9 is fast approaching, and to celebrate, NECA has a new line of figures coming out, beginning with 1 (a good place to start) and 9.
Ok, not really, but how many of you out there doubt that there's not a cougar or two on the prowl who has gotten a bit naughty with these plastic pieces of sparkling seduction? That's what we thought.
