NECA Toys-A-Plenty in ’07

Best Movie Licensed Figures Ever!Who doesn’t love toys these days? Long gone are the days of stiff limbed Love Boat action figures and Mego but in their stead is the amazing NECA. This company came in and cleaned up the mess others left movie licenses in. Is there more steam or movies left to keep the train running? Oh yeah!

According to NECA’s official blog the following list is only 60% what will be hitting shelves this year:

Pirates: At World’s End Series 1 (May)
Jack Sparrow (all new sculpt w/ coat and Beach Base)
Sao Feng (all new w/ Bath House Base)
Pintel (new deco w/ Bath House Base)
Ragetti (new deco w/ Bath House Base)

Pirates: At World’s End Series 1 (August)
Jack Sparrow (all new sculpt w/out coat & deck of Black Pearl Base)
Elizabeth Swann (all new w/ Bath House Base)
Tia Dalma (all new w/ deck of Black Pearl Base)
Figure 4 – TBD

NBX Series 6/7 (Fall)
At this point we are still deciding how to assort the new figures between the series but here is what was shown in the basic figure category:
Experiment Jack w/ desk & chair
Sally w/ Apron, Cauldron, and Stove
Oogie Boogie (natural color w/ new ripped arm revealing bugs)
Melting Guy
Spiders in Hair Monster
Corpse Kid w/ Corpse Mom
My. Hyde w/ Mini Hydes

Santa Jack w/ Santa Sally 2 pack (includes large snake & various presents)

Jack & Sally on Spiral Hill Boxed Set (new base and new “in love” head expression for Jack & Sally)

Super-Deformed Jack & Sally Vinyl Figures in 6″ and 12″ sizes

Cult Classics – I think we have already covered Jareth, Hannibal v.2, and Reservoir Dogs on here so this is what is new…

Cult Classics 6 (Sept/Oct)
S-Mart Ash
David (Lost Boys) – could be a 2 pack or single carded
Michael (Lost Boys) – could be a 2 pack or single carded
Figure 3 and or 4 – TBD

We have 2 more Dawn of the Dead figures completed plus we are working on some more new CC figures and possibly more Highlander so there are many options for rounding out the CC6 lineup. They won’t be out until September/October so we have time to plan and assemble the best follow-up to the very popular CC5.

Cult Classics Hall of Fame (Summer)

Saw – yes there will be a variation on Jigsaw and no it is not the CC5 with both heads. It may be a Saw 2 version of Tobin Bell or it may be something else entirely. We have at least 2 variations on Saw ready and details and release plans are still being determined. Saw was the most popular figure from CC5 and retailers & fans want more so we’re going to deliver.

Zombie Ed – yes a single carded release of Ed in Zombie form is planned.
He will have the Zombie head, a new biten arm, all new Zombie deco, shackles, and a new base.

Figure 3 – TBD

Figure 4 – TBD

Player Select Series 2 (Early Fall)
Dante from the original Devil May Cry
Figure 2 – TBA
Figure 3 – TBD

Resident Evil Anniversary Collection 2 (Sept)
Tyrant
Crimson Head Zombie (new head and new arms and hands and all new deco)
Hunter
Licker
*More TBA

Castlevania (October)
Simon Belmont
Alucard
Dracula
Succubus

Grind House
12″ Stuntman Mike – Summer
and we are hoping to release a 2nd series of 7″ figures around the DVD release of GH
