SDCC 2016 : NECA


The Kenner homage series 10 has been fully unveiled at SDCC. The three figure wave will be made up of the Mantis Alien, the Gorilla Alien and the Queen Facehugger.

"To celebrate the 10th series in our bestselling Aliens line, we’re dedicating the full series to the classic ‪#‎Kenner‬ Expanded Universe ‪#‎Aliens‬ of the early 1990s!

Series 10 includes the powerful ‪#‎Gorilla‬ Alien, the Queen ‪#‎Facehugger‬, and ‪#‎Mantis‬ ‪#‎Alien‬, which is cast in translucent green just like the original. Taking inspiration from those designs, our team has transformed these Kenner classics into modern versions with all of today’s detail and articulation.

Each comes with a reprint of the classic Dark Horse Comics mini-comic that was included with the originals! These highly detailed figures stand over 9" tall and are fully poseable. The special blister card packaging is an homage to the classic card art as well, featuring custom illustrations and a color palette that ties back to the toy shelves of the early '90s.

Starts shipping out to retailers in November 2016"

On top of this, the SDCC display contains a number of other figures which NECA have "played around with" for now and that may or may not make future releases. These include a blue, gold and a pink Alien warrior.

And as suspected, the 6 pack of eggs is being released in a black boxed glow in the dark option

"Weyland-Yutani Consumer Notice: There is a product recall in effect for all Cage-Free ‪#‎Xenomorph‬ Eggs sourced from LV-426. If you are still alive, please dispose of any remaining ‪#‎eggs‬. This is a voluntary recall for packaging misprints and is in no way related to any infestation, quarantine or mass extinction you may be experiencing.

From the terrifying Alien movie series, this eerie glow-in-the-dark set includes 6 Xenomorph eggs and 3 facehuggers with bendable tails. They make great ‪#‎diorama‬ pieces, since they’re perfectly in scale with our line of 7" figures. As a bonus for collectors, the black egg carton packaging features glow-in-the-dark accents! Starts shipping out to retailers in September 2016"


As well as the Police Assault T800 Terminator, the NECA display unveiled the T1000 Motorcycle Cop Ultimate figure. The T1000 looks to be coming with three heads (Police Motorcycle Helmet, Normal and damaged). There will also be the spiked finger hands and the forearm blades as well as a handgun

Revealed on the Predator section was the final figure for Scarface from Concrete Jungle, Youngblood and the wonderful AvP Elder.

The Ultimate Jungle Hunter Predator is on display in his own Jungle diorama.

The Ultimate City Hunter and Ultimate Scarface are displayed with their packaging and flanked by the Cinemachines Predator ship

Ninja Turtles

As promised, and as teased, the full four Quarter Scale Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been revealed.

Remember UK followers, these won't be available in the UK at the moment due to licencing issues.

DC & Marvel Quarter Scale

Pulling a surprise out of the bag (as they do) NECA revealed a new version of their Q/Scale Danny Devito Penguin figure, this time in his Gotham Mayor Outfit

"This election season, vote Oswald Cobblepot for Mayor! This all-new version of the ‪#‎Penguin‬ from Batman Returns is ready to hit the campaign trail like a ton of bricks.

The 1/4 scale action figure features the likeness of actor Danny DeVito, whose memorable performance as the twisted Oswald Cobblepot in the 1992 movie still defines the character. The fully poseable figure stands 15" tall and features synthetic hair and a movie-authentic sculpt. Penguin comes with an all-new removable fabric coat, removable top hat, “Cobblepot for Mayor” mini-poster, monocle, cigarette in holder and half-eaten fish accessories.

Loaded with extraordinary detail, this figure is a must-have for Batman fans! Starts shipping out to retailers in November 2016"


The new Preacher licence is NOT on display at SDCC. However, NECA have shared an early sample of the Cassidy figure (minus head) on their Twitter feed.

Ash vs Evil Dead

The first three figures from Ash vs The Evil Dead are on display at SDCC. And NECA have then gone on to announce where this creepy looking chap fits in after tweeting him emerging from a cellar on the first day of the show. It seems the Ash sculpt will get a "bloody" decor and will be released in a 3 pack later this year with two of these Demon Spawn.

"Get a load of this trio. @AshvsEvilDead Bloody Ash vs Demon Spawn 3 pack coming this Fall!!" - Randy Falk, NECA (via Twitter)

"Just in time for Season 2 of the hit STARZ series Ash vs Evil Dead, we present a special edition action figure 3-pack dedicated to the dramatic Season 1 finale. The set includes ‪#‎BloodyAsh‬ and two demon spawn figures that are exclusive to this set.

The series follows Ash: stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who spent 30 years avoiding responsibility, and the terrors of the ‪#‎EvilDead‬. In final episode of season 1, ‪#‎Ash‬ is beset by demonic creatures at the cabin in the woods, and this set lets you recreate that dramatic battle.

The thoroughly bloodied Ash stands nearly 7” tall and comes with‪#‎chainsaw‬ and ‪#‎shotgun‬ that fits in a back holster. Each ‪#‎demon‬ spawn has a unique head sculpt and is fully poseable, standing 5.5” tall. Window box packaging. Starts shipping out to retailers in October 2016!"
