Until now, NECA items have only been available in the U.S., and this expansion into international markets will bring NECA’s TMNT product to fans around the world.>“Bringing our Turtle product to fans worldwide is something we have wanted for years. Thanks to our great partnership with Nickelodeon, we are so grateful to finally give loyal international Turtle fans – who have been supporting our TMNT line since its inception – an opportunity to collect this fantastic range,” said Randy Falk, NECA’s director of product development.
Golden Girls in package.
Apparently there's these two Coraline figures coming in May.
>>7507258Love that they used Bandai stands
>>7507428>>7507346>when you try to run, but you still get it in the back doorThose rapey trees don't have any respect for personal boundaries.
>>7507428haha, can't even use their own stands that they produce because they suck ass.
Anyone knows if there's a difference between the first Ultimate Jungle Hunter and the reissue? I think the eyes in the new one might actually be separate instead of a sonic-type one eye.
>>7507193Looks like Patrick Troughton
Any info about American Gods figures?
Does anyone know what to look out for when buying the Gamestop Turtles? I'm afraid of getting the bootlegs
Having bought a Part VI Jason from the BST, I'm now considering the NES Jason as well. How are they? The only NECA I own so far are the original Hero Ash, ED2 Ultimate Ash, and NOES Ultimate Freddy, so my scope for reference is limited. >>7507647God, this looks awesome. >>7507653I thought exactly the same , haha.
>>7507647I wish they'd do something about that paint app or tampo or whatever on the mask. They go through all this effort to paint and weather these guys just to slap a cartoon looking detail right on its head.
NECAS ARE SHIT GO BUY A FIGMA OR A REVOLTECH
>>7507647Yes, the wrist are the new peg hinge system, and they've touched up the paint, mostly on the unmasked head. There's more applications on the forehead mostly.
>>7507815If it wasn't for the FvJ Ultimate Jason coming out I'd be all over this
>>7507214>>7507816Just release the bitches already.
>>7507187Roy roy roy is our boy! Can't fucking wait, he look great.
>>7507691Yeah, luckily it's a very easy thing to fix, just some paint wash poured delicately on select spots on the mask makes the weather blend in better. Been meaning to do that forever. Thanks for the pic btw, so the most accurate mask have the "one-eye" right? I was about to buy the new one since I thought it was more accurate to have the eyes separate. >>7507682Thanks bro, it potographs great under natural light in forest-like outdoors.>>7507810Oh maaan, do you own one? I might need to buy the new one after all. Predator is my favorite movie so I just have to.And will do it again when Neca releases the 7" body with real netting, cause you know they will.And when Mafex does theirs (hopefully)
>>7508012Mind you, I haven't been able to compare it to my older Ultimate.
>>7507587hehe, literally what I was thinking.
>>7507889I'm honestly really curious how well the remake is going to do. I guess it has its fans, but I wouldn't expect it to sell crazy good.
>>7508299Thanks man, yeah, gonna have to get a couple more. >>7507691I went ahead a did a test run on the wash, looks bretty good I think.I'll clean it up and do it with a little more finesse, maybe some slight earth color washes too.
>>7508633>I guess it has its fans,Just like New Nightmare, its trash and any one who likes it, is wrong, but it has its moments and it's fans. The Jason looks like a bad Halloween costume all the tall ugly dudes wore back in the early 90s.
>>7507187What's up with the Hellraiser situation? Have they addressed any possible release date?
>>7508884Nothing yet, I presume it'll be one of the SDCC announcements at this point. We may see something about it just before, though.Of interest, at least if you're in the area, apparently they're thinking about some kind of meet-up? It'd be cool to do, if you're interested in the behind the scenes stuff at a toy studio. I think, anyway.https://twitter.com/NECA_TOYS/status/1120888303929233412
>>7508823Not going to lie; this looks more like water damage to the figure, than wear to the armor.
>>7508823This doesn't look good at all.
Aw yiss. Packaged shot means it's coming soooooon.
>>7510461Nice, but what about the fucking aliens???
My Clan Leader's right leg is super-loose. Any way I can fix it?Also, my Spike Tail's left wrist snapped, but it can still easily be put back on and turned, though a bit loose. Is there some sort of tack I can use to fix it?
>>7510371literally says test run right there, the very first one, to leave water-like marks on the mask like in the movie, it needed finesse and some earth colors to blend better, I tried it a couple more times to perfect the technique and it came out more subdued and blends a lot better, will post pics later.
>>7510915Its on the calendar now, and once its on there, its pretty much set.
>>7507258I wish they didn’t use the translucent hair again.
>>7508299Could you post pics of the masked head please?
>NECA will never make classic universal monstersugh. Shape of Water is the closest we'll ever get.
>>7511511I know that feel.I'd even pay extra for a Neca Nosferatu or Drácula (Lugosi, Lee and Oldman would all be awesome). I mean, they could even do the obvious Mego dolls and Color/B&W repaint.
>>7511568unfortunately I don't think Universal Monsters are huge sellers. Mezco made their One:12 Frankenstein years ago. It never seemed to sell out, and they never made another universal monster again. Diamond Select seemed to have stopped making their figures too.The only consistent universal monster merch I can think of is cheaper lower priced figures
>>7511303>Its on the calendar now, and once its on there, its pretty much set.Oh you sweet, innocent naive child
>>7512087You obviously don't follow the calendar. Once they're on the calendar, they almost never get delayed after that. Mind you, the date on the calendar is the shipping date, so it still may take 1-2 weeks before the figures start actually appearing in stores. Sometimes they actual do appear in stores at, or even before, that date.
Shit son, we've about got a full Nostromo crew! Just need Ash...
>>7511511>>7511568I'd even be happy with stuff from Dracula Untold, although I think I'm like the only person who liked that movie. His armor is just so dope in it.
>>7513206The armor in Bram Stoker's Dracula was cooler.
>>7512098>You obviously don't follow the calendar.>they almost never get delayed after that.Okay man.
>>7513796If NECA did a dracula figure, it would be a cloth old man Dracula, which is a bummer. A 7" Ford Coppola armored Dracula and a seven inch count Orlok are NECA figures I desperately hope happen eventually.
>>7513888People would want Lugosi though more than anything else, which unfortunately won't happen as Lugosi's estate demands hefty bags of cash for his likeness. The few Lugosi Drac toys that were made are rather rare and go for a fortune now.
The best toy NECA has ever done is the Queen, prove me wrong
>>7514377K Trons are best.
>>7514377It's a fight between that and the Spider-Gremlin for the thing I've wanted since I was a kid.
>>7513006Still missing Kane with full likeness. Maybe they might do a chestbuster version of Kane?
>>7513890I get Lugosi is the iconic one but as a figure I think he’s look kinda cheesy, I’d much rather have a Christopher Lee or Gary Oldman Dracula
>>7514449Not so much missing, since his likeness rights are damn difficult to get. Even Hot Toys couldn't do it.
>>7513796McFarlane made a couple figures. No armored Dracula tho.
>>7510461Those are some grumpy figures.
Got the Pan's Faun yesterday and it's awesome. Mine had some very tight joints in the legs but that actually helps it stand so I'm not complaining. Just an overall beautiful figure.
I'm looking for some stands to keep the figures upright. The gremlins can sometimes be a pain. Should I get any of these in the pic or something else?
>>7516371I love the NECA stands. They work great for just generic poses. They work for almost any kind of 1/12 scale figure. If you want to do some dynamic poses than you'll have to get one of the other stands.
>>7516222Got any pics? I'm waiting til next paycheck to get him, but I can't wait. I waited 13 damn years as it was, I can wait 2 more weeks
>>7516664Neca stands are straight fucking trash. Period.
>>7516664Varying peg sizes, for varying sized foot pegs. What a company. Snagged this guy today. He’s fine, but his legs can’t really raise much due to the pistol design so he’s just standing there.
hello guys, /tv/ fag here,how come NECA didnt make ALITA: Battle Angel figures?it feels like the perfect property for NECA to have made, the kind of character NECA would have done perfectly
>>7517152Cool, cool, that's untrue.>>7517236Because anime adaptions tend to suck. And that was true in this case as well.
>>7517269you can say that aboyt many of NECA'S linesvalerian, jonah hex, carrie remake, the predator, NECA has made a lot of figures from shitty movies. if quality was an issue why did they make Prometheus toys then?
>>7517283Because Fox forced Neca to make them.
>>7517283Because Prometheus is part of the alien and predator lines, and regardless of how bad those movies are, there are designs there that people love and will add to their collection.I fucking hate Prometheus and Covenant but I bought the figures.
>>7514377For now, but just wait for their King Ghidorah figure
>>7517269Alita ruled you bum
Anyone notice their Targets getting rid of the NECA sections?One of my local ones did. It rarely had NECA figures though, but when it did, that shit disappeared fast.
>>7517852All the targets are in the middle of a reset, dont worry, you'll NECA section will be back, just reorganized and maybe even bigger
>>7517283I agree, Neca make a lot of Space marines and multiple Alien Qeens
>>7517808Grats yo. These are some bomb-ass figs. It took me a few weeks to find a set for myself. I got some weird looks from messicans in the line, but fug 'em I want my turtles.
>>7517808That Shredder is amazing, you're gonna love him.
BBTS has the Aliens Power Loader up for preorder. I don't have much experience with NECA stuff - is it safe to assume I can just slap the Ripley from the Ripley/Newt 2-pack into that thing just fine?
>>7518239Yes, but good luck getting her to hold the controllers correctly.
>>7518023>>7518211Yup. They’re fantastic. Easily my favorite Neca 2-pack. Both figures are great but Shredder really is outstanding. His soft goods cape is really well done for a change. All of his paint apps are great as well. Super hyped. I wonder if I’ll ever find the other sets?
>>7518239ED is also getting re-released
Grabbed a gamer gremlin while at the mall today. his whirly hat was a little bent but the other one on the shelf had a crooked eye so I went with the first one. Of course he promptly fell off my desk and broke the hat, nobody to really blame but myself though.At least all his joints are fine.
>>7518529Yeah, I saw that - I grabbed the recent re-release of the Alien Queen, thinking it could make for a fun diorama fighting that ED-209 I already have, but then I saw the Power Loader re-release and nabbed that along with the Ripley/Newt two-pack. Looks like ED-209 is gonna have to be content with duking out with Mafex Robocop.
>>7518551Well shoot, sorry to hear about the hat breaking, but Gamer is a fun toy. I love the Atari controller.
>>7514377Not action-figurey enough. It's a nice staction-figure though.
>>7519028You have no idea what a staction figure is.
>>7519036Yeah I do. The queen is a pose and forget piece that you can't do all that much with. I own it.Needing a stand limits what you can do obviously.
>>7519070I wanna go
Just saw the giant alien queen for the first time ever in a Target, thing is fucking beautiful. Low key wish I was a Alienfag so I could buy it but I'm not
>>7519231bUt ThEy CaN't PoSsIbLy MaKe GhIdOrAh
>>7518551that damn hat seems to be causing trouble for everyone that gets him. I kind of wanted to get one but now I think i'll just stick with my regular gremlin just to save myself the trouble
>>7519062You're full of shit then if you think you can't do "all that much with" it. The stand doesn't limit anything either.
>>7519293They didn't say the stand limits it you retard. Read before you reeee
>>7519296Maybe YOU need to read retard. >Needing a stand limits what you can do>Needing a stand limits what you can do>Needing a stand limits what you can do
>>7519309Needing a stand =/= the stand itself. Again, learn to read, and then figure out how to comprehend the words you've just read.
>>7519318God damn you're stupid, is English even your first language?
>>7519318Not to get between you two queens, but I think you're the one not paying attention here.
>>7519338I'd have to ask you that since you're the one being an illiterate moron. "Needing a stand limits what you can do" doesn't mean the stand limits it. It means the way the figure is made in a way that it requires a stands means it can only do so much. It's a statement about the figure itself. "The stand doesn't limit anything either" is a statement about the stand, which is arguing a point >>7519062 didn't even make in the first place. So you either can't read it you don't know how to properly articulate your thoughts. You're a retard either way.>>7519342Might wanna re-read the thread then.
>>7519369I never said anything about the stand being a problem you fucking mong. I was talking about the figure to begin with. And if you couldn't figure that out, you're the one with the reading problem. Maybe you shouldn't get into conversations your short bus riding ass can't understand.
>>7519369>"The stand doesn't limit anything either" is a statement about the standNot even in the slightest. It's all in reference to the figure. I think you might've failed some necessary courses in grade school if you can't understand that bro.
>>7519398>Not even in the slightest."The stand" is literally the subject of that sentence. You and >>7519389 are both ignoring basic English sentence structure, either because you're too stupid to understand it or trying to cover up a dumb statement.
>>7519389>I never said anything about the stand being a problemAnd literally nobody ever claimed the stand was a problem. >>7519293 is responding to a post as if they did claim it even though they didn't. See: "Needing a stand =/= the stand itself"
>>7519413Or you simply can't read and want to pick fights. It's clear that they're talking about the queen figure itself. There's no reason to talk about the stand, the statement made is referring to the fact that the stand in no way limits what the queen can do as a figure. It doesn't take a leap of logic to follow that.
>>7519417Are you really this fucking dense dude? You're literally making a problem where there was none.
>>7519418>the statement made is referring to the fact that the stand in no way limits what the queen can do as a figureYes, and they said it in response to literally nobody claiming that the stand limited it. How do you not get this?
>>7519420No, that would be the person aggressively claiming someone was full of shit for saying the queen can't do much, and then arguing against a point they didn't even make.
>>7519429>literally nobody claiming that the stand limited it>Needing a stand limits what you can doIt's like you're being obtuse on purpose.
>>7519432Okay, so thanks for pointing out that you're a retard who can neither read nor comprehend words. AGAIN: that does not claim that the stand limits the figure. The fact that the figure NEEDS the stand is what limits it."(the queen)Needing a stand limits what you can do" It is a statement about the queen. Nobody is claiming that the stand limits the figure. The figure itself is limited, as shown by it's need for a stand. Fuck.
>>7519438Congrats, you're a complete fucking dipshit who can't understand anything said to them. The figure is not limited because it needs a stand. But please, repeat your moronic tirade some more, it's hysterical.
>>7519440>The figure is not limited because it needs a standNo, it needs a stand because it's limited. You are about as stupid as a person can possibly get.
>>7517808>that shitty artworkwewshredder is the only good thing about this
>>7519438By gum lad, you may be one of the stupidest people on this board. Is this the Burger education system at work?
>>7519441It's not limited at all.
Holy shit. I have the queen. Because of it's proportions and how NECA chose to engineer it, >>7519062 is right. You pose it, prop it up with the stand, and that's pretty much that. It has the stand because without it, you can't really do anything with it due to the weight of the front end. This absolutely limits its posing potential. Like they said, needing a stand in the first place makes this pretty obvious. It's an extremely cool toy, but it functions as more of a poseable prop than an action figure. Anyone who can't figure that out is a blind NECA dick sucker who just wants to argue.
>>7519444Seems to work pretty well considering I'm objectively correct about what has been said.>>7519445It is. That's why it needs the stand.
>>7519449>You pose it, prop it up with the stand, and that's pretty much that.So like Revoltech, Figma, Mafex, Hot Toys, Sideshow...
>>7519453>I'm objectively correct about what has been saidYou aren't correct at all. You're claiming victory after you didn't understand what was said. You are King Retard, and that's about it.
>>7519454Hmm maybe those last two, since I've never seen anyone do anything with those other than just have them stand there (kinda like the queen being discussed). They don't have anything to do with what's being discussed though. Those other three are closer to the predators/aliens/humans. They can do a whole lot compared to the queen. But they still don't have anything to do with the topic at hand.
>>7519461Do you suck at posing or something? The queen is a very dynamic figure, just because it needs a stand for some poses doesn't limit the thing.
>>7519456>You're claiming victory after you didn't understand what was said.The only person who didn't understand what was said was the one acting like a statement about a figure is a statement about a stand. Sentence structure has pretty clear rules so that people can easily and clearly communicate with eachother. Acting like you're right when you can't even grasp basic rules of language makes you the moron here.
>>7519463By all means, please post dynamic poses of the queen. Because it does two things: stands in its normal natural position, and can be tilted up right on its hind legs. You know, the only things it ever did in the first place.
>>7519464>the one acting like a statement about a figure is a statement about a stand.>Acting like you're right when you can't even grasp basic rules of language makes you the moron here.Which is exactly what you did. So maybe you're not totally retarded, you see what you did wrong.
>>7519472How do you still not get this? At no point have you managed to be correct or understand why you're wrong in the first place. This is extremely simple stuff that eight year olds have already figured out.
>>7519479>This is extremely simple stuff that eight year olds have already figured out.Then what your problem? You're the one that's been throwing a fit over something YOU misunderstood.
>>7519454>this false equivalence
>>7519482Are you really this stupid? Here, I've isolated the relevant posts for you. Saying "needing a stand limits it" is not saying "the stand limits it." >>7519293 and >>7519309 has been misunderstanding >>7519062 the entire time. Repeatedly highlighting the statement they didn't understand just shows off how dumb they are. It also shows how dumb you are since you've been sitting there unable to grasp that.
>>7519492Needing a stand does not limit it in any way.
>>7519495See, that's what they should've said in the first place, and is completely different from what they posted.But yeah, needing a stand does limit it. I mean... it's limited to the stand. It can't really do a whole lot without it. That's because of the design and the weight though, not because of really anything about the figure itself (though I suppose they could've used different materials and made the upper body lighter).
>>7519445Given that it can't balance by itself, it is by definition, limited.
>>7519504>and is completely different from what they posted.No, it's not. You're trying to make a fight out of nothing. You misunderstood something and are running with it. You're a complete fucking idiot, and I'm sorry your parents wasted their time sending you to school.
>>7519505It *kinda* can, but even still it's just balancing in the exact same position you use the stand for anyway. It's limited by design, which isn't even a criticism of the toy and a dumb thing for NECA defenders to get mad over.
>>7519505>Given that it can't balance by itselfActually, it can. Takes some doing, but it's entirely capable of holding itself up. This was discussed back when it first came out.
>>7519514It can for probably 30 minutes before it comes crashing down. Nobody in their right mind would leave it free-standing on any shelf for any length of time.
>>7519510>No, it's not. It quite literally is.>You misunderstood something and are running with it.No, I see and understand exactly what was said. Either they misunderstood what they were responding to, or they didn't care and argued against a point that wasn't being made in the first place. "Needing a stand does not limit it in any way" and "The stand does not limit it in any way" are referring to two different things. The former is actually responding to what was said in the first place, the latter did not.
>>7519517>I see and understand exactly what was saidBut you've shown time and time again that you didn't understand at all. Again, you've manufactured this entire thing just to argue with people over nothing. You're the one putting words in people's mouths. Or meaning behind their words, rather.
>>7519519>You're the one putting words in people's mouths. Or meaning behind their words, rather.If anything, that's you in trying to act like they meant something other than what they literally said. You then repeatedly show off the fact that you don't know what they're talking about.
>>7519528It's hard to know what they're talking about when they were wrong to begin with.
>>7519534They weren't wrong though. It's an articulated set piece.
>>7519539That is wrong though. It's an articulated large scale action figure.
Author of >>7519062 here.To be clear, the Queen is a nice display piece but not a good "action" figure. It is tremendously unbalanced and forward heavy, ontop of being large and un-wieldy. That is exactly what I meant and that is what I implied. If you want a dynamic free-standing queen and don't mind the defo-real aspect, I'd recommend the Hybrid-metal.
>>7519545Well that's probably the worst looking thing I've ever seen.
>>7514418Have more pics? This guys so awesome
>>7519543It's an action figure that functions as an articulated set piece. Just like it did most of the time on screen. It's also not large scale. It's roughly 1:10, assuming it's actually in scale with the rest of the line and not somewhat undersized.
>>7519549So it's an action figure and can do everything an action figure can.
>>7519551Nobody said it couldn't. You retards really go out of you way to get upset over anything you think isn't enthusiastic praise.
>>7519555>retardsIt's just one.
>>7519558>It's just one.At least you're coming to terms with it finally. Maybe don't act like such a cunt in the future?
>>7519555It's necaon's Grail I think.You should see how mad he gets when I say I prefer the look of the Mcfarlane.
>>7519564I don't even know what you're upset about with that post. Calling people cunts is kinda uhhh acting like a cunt though. Maybe take your own advice there.
>>7519565Jesus man, are you trying to trigger him? Might as well mention the tip of Grid's tail while you're at it.
>>7519565>>7519566>>7519569Ah, lovely. All this stupid fighting has brought the trolls.
>>7519565I have a theory that NECAnon is a poorfag euro or Brit. Their financial strain coupled with the hassle and extra cost of imported NECA figures means he has no choice but to defend them to the death, otherwise he feels insecure with his purchases when faced with criticism. It would also explain the constant "you're lying, you don't own it," when people who clearly do own them bring up any flaws they've experienced. He's just constantly projecting. To those who have NECA products in abundance, it's nothing. To those who have to pay extra or put in extra effort to get even a limited selection, they're idealized to the extreme. That's why they get so mad. It's also why they never post their toys. They don't have any and live in a slum.America rules!
>>7519574Too pussy to handle light banter? Lighten up, it's just jokes.
>>7519579Is that why you buy crappy bootlegs?
>>7519070Sounds fun but it's not like anyone I know would be interested in going, and I'm not about to awkwardly hang out with a bunch of people I don't know
>>7519586Why would I ever do that when every NECA is readily available here in the great US of A?
>>7507261god i want to fuck her pu$$y so bad lol
>>7507258>>7507261Pro & cons of bendy vs action figure?
>>7520087Where do I buy this one?
>>7520087Bendy wire can eventually break over time, articulated joints could get loose over time. Articulated one might look a little more natural posed? Maybe...
>>7519545That is one adorable bitch.
Shit there’s a ton of stuff coming out in May, can’t way to get my hands on Godzilla and Mothra.
If they are re-releasing ED-209 why cant they re-release Robocop?
>>7520463there's enough Robocop already
>>7520404Shredder is out this month? Oh man, I'm fucking psyched. I hope bbts gets it in a reasonable amount of time.
>>7520463>>7520473The current Mafex Robocop is fucking great.
>>7520623I wonder if Neca or Mafex would be able to make Cain Robocop 2. Shit would be insane.
>>7520404Really surprised those life sized statues sold well enough to make another batch of.
>>7520623Can it bend it's elbows more than 45 degrees? Because that's the one thing that grates me on the NECA figure.
>>7520747Looks like it can.
What the fuck took them so long to release Roy? Christ, I forgot how long this line can take in between figures.
>>7513796this is one of the hollywood movie design I want the most but also cursed with the fact that it's one of the least likely to happen.
>>7519515Yeah, even if you do get it balanced on it's own, the gummy plastic used for it's high heels will literally warp under the figures weight and lead to it falling over.
Who is going to NecaCon?
>>7521255They had other things planned first.
Got both Part VI and NES Jasons on the way from a seller in the BST. Is the NES Freddy worth tracking down? Does his box play theme music too or is that gimmick limited to the GameStop Jason?
>>7522357Sadly no music on NES Freddy. He's not as cool as the Jason...but if you want them to compliment each other, his colors are fun. Very Halloween-ey to me.
So... Pinhead reveal tomorrow?I mean Randys hinted at an Ultimate Pinhead since like the end of last year, what else would this be?
>>7522357I got NES Freddy, NES Jason, and Atari Leatherface all displayed together. They all compliment each other well since they're all drastically different bright colors.
>>7522426>what else would this be?I can say what I hope it isn't.
>>7522574I wish these were smaller
>>7522427>Atari LeatherfaceHadn't heard of this one before. I'm not sure how I feel about that one. It's like zero effort went into it.
>>7522962matches the game pretty well, then
Its not the Pinhead I was hoping for but it's better than another Jason
>>7523301Wow, I didn't think we'd see another Candyman figure.
>>7523323you excited for the reboot?
>>7523324Eh, I generally ignore remakes, but It: Chapter 1 turned out alright, so maybe the Candyman will too.
>>7523301Well I'll be goddamned.
Boy this creeps me out. They did a good job.
>>7522814I think they've stated they have no interest in the reboot on twitter
>>7523301Cool, but can we get an ultimate candyman figure and not weirdly proportion 8" doll?Hopefully this stirs up enough attention and preorders to warrant an ultimate figure. When they revealed the conjuring universe line Randy said it was because of all the attention their Nun retro doll got, in some toyfair interview. Or maybe I misinterpreted that, that's what it sounded like though.
>>7522962Well if they can make a quick buck...
>>7524173I mean the whole point of the video game repaint sub-line was to reuse molds and give some cool looking versions of figures. They ARE a company, of course they're trying to get more bang for their sculpt and tooling costs.
>>7522427>>7522962I think they look nice. I get that its less exciting and a secondary color on the green would've helped, but I preferred this look to the pixelled stuff they did later on.
>>7524195I love the pixel stuff they did. Godzilla and the Arcade Turtles were big favs of mine.
>>7524195All of those figures are better when they're standing next to eachother
>>7524195>a secondary color on the green would've helpedI think that's the most off-putting thing about it, the completely green body. If it had linework like Jason or a secondary color to break up all the green, it would've gone a long way.
>>7524203It just looks really uncoordinated to me when its done like that. hard flat shading gets the idea across better.
>>7524195>>7524206Secondary shading for Atari graphics is redundant.
>>7508633I actually really like the Remake design. It's like they mixed FvJ and Part 2. I'll probably get both FvJ and 2009 Jason anyway.
>>7511511MEGO Monster Squad
Is there some kind of licensing issue with Jason parts 7-10? Seems like NECA is avoiding those parts.
>>75268177 is a 100% new tooling sculpt.8 you could get away with some reuse from the 'Roy' body but not much. 9 is almost 100% new tooling as well. Molds are expensive so those Jasons have to wait.
>>7526837Did the remake and FvJ Jason's not need new molds?
>>7526915Pretty much. They're both mostly recycled from old Jason releases. They basically just took their old FvJ Figure and their old Remake Jason figure and added leg articulation.
>>7523979PLEASE SAY THIS IS 8 INCHES TALLi need this fur coat if this is actually 8 inches tall!!!The coat is great and i have one 8' fig that would look great in it...but y-yeah...this figure is fucking gross...i get what they going for but i dont want to have a naked version of this candyman dude in my home
>>7526948Yeah it's 8"
>>7526941Looking at my old FvJ and Remake Jasons, I feel some of the other parts are new.>>7526817I wonder if they'll do both iterations for Jason X or just Super Jason? Both will require new sculpts. After the movies, I would like to see some of the comic designs from pic related and Jason Vs. Leatherface. >>7523979Hoping for Ultimate figures of Candyman, Ghostface, and Pinhead. I yearn for Pumpkinhead and more Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
>>7523301>a megoIt's like it's nothing. Randy may as well have come over and fucked my wife and left right before taking a shit in the middle of the room.
>>7526992Well at least he didn't leave after taking a shit in the middle of the room
>>7526950sweet, thanks man!
>>7526985I would assume whatever money they make from their upcoming Jasons will only go towards supporting the sculpting and tooling of the other Jasons.If their twitter is anything to go by, Ghostface isn't happening, but Pinhead is. I wouldn't be surprised if they eventually give us dinner suit leatherface, since a lot of people ask for that and the ultimate leatherface has been reissued so many times, it's clearly selling
>>7526915>>7526941Exactly. They are gonna hold off on the other jason's till they can either do reuse or got some extra $ aside for the tooling.
>>7526992You still have hope for random horror surprises being actual figures? I gave up a long time ago. But hey, at least he’s humored the idea of an ultimate Sam. God I miss the old horror classics line.
>>7527201>at least he’s humored the idea of an ultimate SamWe're getting an ultimate Sam, and ultimate Pinhead, and ultimate Conjuring universe figures. Nothing has been officially solicited, but if Randy says it's going to happen on twitter, there's no reason to think they won't happen
Kinda forgot this was coming. Neat.
>>7527575That doesn’t negate the fact that we’ll never stop getting these dogshit megos instead of actually good figures. Nice job missing the point.
>>7527669Maybe stop being so butthurt? And the megos are popular as hell, of course they're going to keep doing them.
>>7527674If they were so popular, we'd have an ultimate Snake instead of being told that the reason we don't have one is because the Mego didn't sell enough.They're cheap and sell enough to justify reusing the same body over and over. If they're so popular and great, please feel free to post your collection
>>7527669The point? You literally said "You still have hope for random horror surprises being actual figures? I gave up a long time ago"
>>7527726One figure maybe not selling enough doesn't mean the line isn't popular dumbass. Not to mention that was an earlier figure in the line. The Mego figs have taken off, just because you don't like them, that doesn't mean they can produce them without any drawbacks. They sell.
>>7527826>One figure maybe not selling enoughIt definitely didn't sell enough and Randy said so himself. >Not to mention that was an earlier figure in the line.Not really and also not an excuse.
>>7527726If they weren't popular they wouldn't make them. But they do, and they do a lot of them. And people do buy them and post pictures all the time. Why are you being such a sandy vagina over this?
>>7527872I'm not the one getting defensive and slinging insults. They make things that they can't justify sinking money into fully sculpted figures for because they don't sell enough to pay for the tooling. They sell enough to justify their existence with minimal initial investment on their end.
>>7527877They obviously sell better than "well enough" or they wouldn't be doing as much with them as they do.
>>7527880If they sold better they'd be able to justify a greater investment than the bare minimum new pieces on the same couple of bodies.
>>7527892That's not the way Megos work, now you're trying to drudge up stupid complaints.
>>7527898These aren't Megos. They're supposed to be better than that. It's not 1972.And I'm aware of how Megos work, and their business model for these. They sell enough to continue a minimal investment line, but not enough to say "these sales numbers justify a greater investment into fully tooled figures." We're talking about a line where they have literally said that their sales aren't high enough to make fully tooled versions.
>>7527918They are Megos. And no they aren't trying to be better. Just in sculpts and choices. They fit the horror niche. Again you're just finding reasons to complain.
>>7527931>They are Megos. They literally are not.>And no they aren't trying to be better. Just in sculpts and choices.So they're not trying to be better except just where they're trying to be better?> Again you're just finding reasons to complainThe only thing I've complained about is using a niche line that already doesn't move in huge quantities in the first place as a means of gauging interest in better figures. I'll never support the "buy X so we'll maybe make Y" model.
>>7527939You realize they're not gauging interest for every figure, right? You're trying to attach something that was said long ago to current releases. You're welcome to complain all you want on Twitter, but your whining on the subject is boring.
>>7527951>You realize they're not gauging interest for every figure, right?Yes. I didn't say they were.
>>7527960Yes, you did. And it makes all your complaining moot. They either had plans to make a figure or not. The Mego line is doing well enough to warrant these characters getting placed in them.
>>7527967>Yes, you did.I did not. >They either had plans to make a figure or not. Their plans were dependent on Mego sales.>The Mego line is doing well enough to warrant these characters getting placed in them.I never said otherwise.
>>7526999Good because I remember reading several times over that Randy doesn't fancy TCM and that shouldn't affect the production of their figures. A Part 2 Two Pack of Chop Top and Leatherface would be stellar.
>>7528229Man I’d kill for that.
>>7520655Doubt it. If I remember right the designer made him complicated so he wouldn't be copied as easily like Ed.
>>7526985>PumpkinheadThis would be one of the coolest things.
>>7527575>ultimate SamLike from Trick 'r Treat? Because that would be an instant buy for me.
>>7528416Yeah, Randy was teasing that it "could be a possibility" some time after Toy Fair. He seemed rather positive about it, no shoot downs.
>>7528416Yeah, the showed off a Trick R' Treat Sam for their retro cloth line, and when asked about an ultimate one in the works on twitter the answer was something like how they're "Absolutely interested" in that or something like that
>>7527201Every now and then I search the Mego Herbert West and the SOTA version immediately after. I sigh heavily and remind myself maybe before I'm 60 a decent figure will be made.
>>7528453I think Herbert is the one that broke me.
So are there any chances of NECA doing other Toho monsters? Maybe different versions of Kong (Classic, 70s, Peter Jackson, Skull Island)?
Maybe “too niche” just means “I don’t wanna” regardless, this looks pretty cool.
>>7529221Or maybe it's literally too niche. Crooked Man has a movie coming out, and the Conjuring movies make crazy money, it makes sense they're doing him. I wants.
>>7529338>Crooked Man has a movie coming outNot at the moment. That was put on the backburner for more nun and annabelle stuff
>>7529221This design is incredible and I'm glad they're making it but I feel like it can meet the same fate as the Valerian figures. >>7529503Ugh, those designs are far less superior and they just got films.
Soooo cloooose...come to daddy...
>>7529517>I feel like it can meet the same fate as the Valerian figuresI doubt it. Valerian was one of the big blockbusters that come out that Hollywood puts so much faith and money into and then it comes out and no ones gives a shit. Like Jupiter Ascending, John Carter, that recent Robin Hood movie, etcThe Conjuring movies are established as successes already, and their spinoffs no matter how shit they are make lots of money. And horror fans and collectors have a big overlap. One of the reasons they went ahead with this conjuring universe line was because the response to the Nun retro doll reveal was so strong. Atleast Randy said that in a Toy Fair interview.I think the conjuring universe line will be ok.
>>7529517>Ugh, those designs are far less superior and they just got films.True. I also love the crooked man in the conjuring 2, atleast when he wasn't cgi morphing out of a dog. The few seconds of practical effects we got looked so good. I don't know if I want my man crooks to get his own movie that will definitely be shit. Every spinoff from that universe looks like the director was told by the movie execs "Hey, see James Wan's movie? The Conjuring? Do that" and then we end up getting a shitty dollar store conjuring styled movie. Curse of La Llorona was probably the worst one yet.
I remember someone inquired NECA about an ultimate Annabelle on twitter and I forgot the exact response but it pointed to there being an ultimate Annabelle in the works.But how would that work? Annabelle is a completely inanimate doll. Would she come from the demon possessing her from the first movie? Would she be a 2 pack with an ultimate nun?
>>7529563I hope it comes with that demon guy. Old school goat horned demons are my shit
Weren’t the 1:10 movie Turtles going to be available worldwide? Any more news on that?
>>7529635https://news.toyark.com/2019/04/22/press-release-necas-teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles-line-goes-global-343169>NECA’S TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES LINE GOES GLOBAL!>Licensing agreement with Viacom Nickelodeon Consumer Products expanded to include international territories>April 22, 2019 – U.S.-based National Entertainment Collectibles Association (NECA) announced today the expansion of its licensing agreement with Viacom Nickelodeon Consumer Products (VNCP) for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT). For the first time ever, NECA’s distribution agreement will include international markets, allowing its bestselling TMNT action figures and collectibles to be sold in dozens of countries around the world from Asia to Europe to South America.>NECA first acquired the TMNT license in 2016 and has produced an expansive line of collector products based on the franchise’s movies and animated series, including action figures, prop replicas, accessories, collectibles and more. Until now, NECA items have only been available in the U.S., and this expansion into international markets will bring NECA’s TMNT product to fans around the world.>“Bringing our Turtle product to fans worldwide is something we have wanted for years. Thanks to our great partnership with Nickelodeon, we are so grateful to finally give loyal international Turtle fans – who have been supporting our TMNT line since its inception – an opportunity to collect this fantastic range,” said Randy Falk, NECA’s director of product development.
Any updates on this fella? What about Laurie, is she coming next month?
>>7529537I was looking from the angle of the movie hasn't released yet and people may not recall a creature that appeared for mere seconds during The Conjuring 2. However, the strong visual design and hype for the upcoming movie should be a decent symbiotic relation for NECA and the film. >>7529551The Crooked Man and >>7529563 have the most visual appeal to me thus far from James Wan. The Insidious films offer a colorful variety too but they're not included in the deal. I wouldn't mind a 7 Inch Ultimate Nun.
>>7529221This guy could make a really cool Jack Skellington custom
>>7529221he looks pretty gud, I'm still butt mad they decided to make the nun a shitty cloth doll
>>7530777She looks pretty fucking great still.
>>7530777They hinted at an ultimate nun I think on twitter back around toyfair
>>7529221>>7530695Such a cool design.
>>7520655Mafex might be able to. With all those moving parts and pistons though I wouldn't trust NECA to do it though.
>>7530976The only interesting thing in the Conjuring movies.
>>7530978>With all those moving parts and pistons though I wouldn't trust NECA to do it thoughThat's a really dumb thing to say.
>>7530981Vera Farmiga is pretty interesting to my dick.
Remake Jason is in stock on the eBay/Amazon stores.
>>7531037Not really. Look at the NECA Portal robots, they fucking sucked. And with NECA's track record of abysmal QC and joints breaking out the package, something with as many joints as RoboCain would be a disaster.
>>7532005That opinion shows how very little you know about anything regarding their toys, especially within the last five or six years now. So again, that's an extremely dumb thing to say. On top of that, Cain being larger would prevent most issues from arising.
Gonna need pic related as a head sculpt, presuming NECA hits us with figures for It: Chapter 2.
>>7532044They already confirmed the Pennywise with the spider legs is their last release for the 1st movie because they have to focus on making figures for part 2, so they're coming.I just wish they could spend the money making Pennywise's other forms like the painting lady or the leper guy. As it is now, I fully expect for all part 2 figures to just be the same figure we've gotten like 4 times now with just different accessories
>>7532061We're getting the painting lady as a head. Nobody is going to spend the money on a whole figure of that or the leper though. That just doesn't make sense in this market.
>>7532028I'll believe it when I see it. People say every single time "This one will be good!" and then it turns out to be just as much of a gamble on QC as every other release.
>>7532066The painting lady head is what I'm most excited for in that set.I'm not saying making the leper guy would be a financially smart decision, I understand, I still wish they could do it though. I'd rather have 2 Pennywise versions, 1 Painting Lady, and 1 Leper rather than 4 Pennywises
>2019 godzilla released out of nowhere
>>7532578>acid eyes>gamera tier tooth paintjobyikes, how do you get a previous release more accurate
>>7532611Yikes, how do you make a retarded ass assumption like this based on a tiny photo.
>>7532657 uhhh anon
>>7528979They have Rodan, Mothra, Ghidorah and maybe MechaG
>>7532657It's already out in Target. There's many more photos.
>>7532776Is it? Awesome, hopefully my rep stocks some shit.
>>7532707I'd adore classic versions of these Rodan and Mothra were always my favorites.
>>7532044>>7532061>>7532066It would be a crime not to get a figure of the eldritch spider Pennywise will transform into during this film. Sadly the Tim Curry version probably won't get the same treatment.
>>7532680I can live with that. We'll see what we find today, if they're really on some kind of early release date everywhere.
Take this with a huge, huge grain of salt:>"Nothing super specific. I know that between the movie and cartoon lines, they have something like 18-20 figures sculpted (for 7 inch scale). Not sure on the ratio of movie to cartoon figures that is, though.>Then there's the SDCC set, which is set to be movie, with one completely brand new figure in the set (which will be released later on minus some accessories like the initial Turtles set).>But rest assured, everything in quarter scale WILL see release in 7 inch scale, as Nickelodeon is slicensing, and forcing Playmates to release their stranglehold on the license.>Hence, why the Batman/TMNT line is happening. And Super 7 is doing a line, as well.>NECA holds things a little closer to the vest, so they're pretty hard to get info from!"Source: http://forums.thetechnodrome.com/showthread.php?t=61369&page=2
I went to 3 Targets yesterday and they all had TMNT 90s toon figures. I'm glad that Neca is meeting the demand on these.
>>7533265>Then there's the SDCC set, which is set to be movieSo what about these guys? Scratch the VG deco and release them in toon colors?
>>7534169The toon colors were coming no matter what, probably later this year with Bebop and Rocksteady.
>>7533265>Batman lineWhat? How did i miss this? What Batman line is Neca doing/going to do?
>>7534552No, that was in reference to the Batman Mikey that's being done by DC Collectibles. Apparently they're going to do a full line for that movie (Batman vs the TMNT). Whatever that entails.
>>7528387Go to sleep boomer, the new pennywise is more movie accurate and the actor understands the character better. It's just dumb nostalgia.
I would S some serious D for Neca to redo this terminator figure. Which Kenner terminator figure would you like to see them redo?
>>7507193It's like he's wearing a hot dog hoodie.
Picked up Godzilla at Gamestop! New tail articulation, new wrists, feels similar elsewhere. Very good sculpting, paint looks good too. Not sure if we'll ever get a nice clear look at his color in the movie, but we'll see.Eyes are fine, they're actually cleanly painted in there, there's just a lot of white. Looks good in person.
>>7536035Honestly no real surprises if you have the last figure. Sculpt is fantastic, paint's good, articulation is improved. It's no Monsterart, but it's a great Godzilla.
>>7536035>Looks good in person.Hard fuckin disagree there bud
>>7536124Looks all good in that pic.
>>7536142Cool, we're talking about seeing it in person, not the picture.
>>7536202If he says it looks good in person and it looks good in the picture, it probably means that figure he owns looks good in general. God you fags are fucking retarded.
>>7536205Cool, I saw one that looks just like in person two hours ago and I personally think it looks like dogshit. Stop trying to argue with subjective opinions you delusional dingus.
>>7536208*I think* Don’t even argue with me about subjective anything you tisim. How about you be objective instead going “muh dogshit”. Use objective terms you faggo.
>>7536226>How about you be objectiveWe're talking about how we personally feel about how a toy looks. There's nothing objective about it.
>>7536208Maybe you're just a dickwad? No normal person would act like you are over something like this.
>>7536124Disagree all you want, that's fine. Doesn't change the fact that it looks good.
>>7536260>No normal person would act like you are over something like this.What, like calling people fags and dickwads for disagreeing about a toy?>>7536261That's your opinion, not a fact.
>>7536009I-is that cheese on his mouth?
>>7536264Nice try fuckface but it is a fact look up the defanition
>>7536511>defanitionCould you tell me the definition of this word first?
>>7536124Cool, I have the figure, it does actually look very good. You don't have to like it.>>7536208You saying it "looks like dogshit" tells everyone that you're coming into this looking for a fight. You made up your mind about something, and I'm pretty sure you didn't actually see it in person, you're just wanting to be a butthole. You be you I guess.
