Toy Fair 2017 : NECA



Gremlins

We knew NECA were releasing the Ultimate Gizmo figure in Spring 2017, what we didn't know until now was that as well as the Mogwai, we have a Gremlin to look forward to in the same scale - Mohawk from Gremlins 2 : The New Batch

From Gremlins 2: The New Batch, Mohawk stands over 6” tall and features incredible movie-accurate detail. He’s fully articulated, including a hinged jaw, and includes with a machine gun accessory. Comes in clamshell packaging. The perfect addition to your Gremlins collection!

Heroes of the Storm

The next Heroes of the Storm figure was confirmed by NECA at Toy Fair. From the World of Warcraft comes the Orc Leader Thrall, a particularly impressive looking Orc Warchief, standing 6.5" tall

From Heroes of the Storm, the online team brawler filled with favorite characters from the video games of #Blizzard!

Orc leader Thrall (World of Warcraft) features a game-authentic sculpt with extra-detailed armor and 25+ points of articulation. The Warchief of the Horde is 6.5” tall and appropriately meaty, and comes with a hammer accessory.

Batman, Predator, Superman and Aliens

NECA are mixing up more licences with these two packs due in late Summer 2017. These packs pits and armoured comic Batman against a Predator as seen in the Batman vs Predator comic book - the Predator will come with both masked and unmasked head options. Batman then faces off against a Joker inspired Xenomorph, complete with green dome and red mouth.

"NECA is extremely excited to reveal a new line of 7” action figure 2-packs inspired by classic comic book mash-ups!

BATMAN/ALIENS – BATMAN & “JOKER” ALIEN 2-PACK

The first release in the “Versus” line comes from the 1997 Batman/Aliens comic book mini-series co-published by DC Comics and Dark Horse Comics. In it, #Batman faces strange new Aliens produced using DNA from some of Arkham Asylum’s deadliest inmates. The set includes two brand new, comic book based figures, both with over 30 points of articulation. Batman features a fabric cape, and the “Joker” Alien has a bendable tail. Window box packaging."

Superman will also be facing off against an Alien Xenomorph, and to help him he will be supplied with an alternative head where he is unleashing his laser vision on the Alien.

Predator Series 18 reveals so far include the full look at Dachande (Broken Tooth) who will be part of the next Predator wave later in 2017

Quarter Scale Marvel

Randy Falk (NECA) tweeted this selfie ahead of the official Toy Fair opening. As you can see in the background, the Marvel Quarter Scale figures are getting their very own Doctor Strange 18" movie figure in 2017.

We soon got a better look at this figure, with the official images and promotional text directly from NECA.

Fresh from #ToyFair2017, this addition to NECA’s line of incredibly detailed quarter scale action figures comes from Marvel’s 2016 Doctor Strange movie!

Based on his on-screen appearance, the former surgeon turned student of the mystic arts stands 18” tall and features the likeness of Benedict Cumberbatch.

The figure is supremely poseable, with over 25 points of articulation, and wears a detailed fabric Cloak of Levitation with inner wire armature, so that it can be posed like the sentient relic it is. Includes Eye of Agamotto, Sling Ring and a pair of alternate hands.

2017 will also see us get a new Captain America, as seen in Civil War, and what looks to be a new or re-release Iron-Man (no more details as yet)

For comic book fans a classic Daredevil. He has already been solicitated and has an August release date.

"Daredevil, the man without fear, joins NECA’s line of incredibly detailed quarter scale action figures! Based on his classic comic book look, the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen stands 18” tall and has over 30 points of articulation for high-flying action poses. Accessories include alternate Matt Murdock head, removed cowl, batons, interchangeable hands, and more."

Evil Dead 2

The 7" Evil Dead figures are expanding with this 2-pack new releases in 2017.


Evil Dead 2: One of the horror greats and a true cult classic! Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the iconic movie, NECA is proud to release a special 2-pack containing Hero Ash and Deadite Ed Getley action figures.

Hero Ash features the likeness of inimitable actor Bruce Campbell. Ash comes with a Necronomicon book that opens up, two alternate head sculpts, bone dagger, sawed off shotgun, and possessed deer head.

Deadite Ed Getley comes with interchangeable heads, one of which comes apart to simulate his gruesome defeat by Ash’s chainsaw. Each 7” scale action figure is highly detailed and fully poseable.

The set comes in a deluxe 30th Anniversary window box with opening flap.

Alien : Covenant

NECA have put out a pre-Toy Fair announcement regarding their Alien : Covenant range of figures. No Covenant items will be on display in New York, and we will have to wait until April for a first look at this exciting new chapter of the Alien universe.

The announcement has confirmed we will be seeing a Xenomorph (image to be released in April) and a "new" creature from the movie in 7" scale. There will also be a deluxe creature accessory pack. Other items will include Head/Body Knockers and the Scaler series.


"We’re excited to announce our line for Alien Movie UK Covenant! Images of it are embargoed until the movie release date of May 19, 2017, but we can say that a horrifying new creature will be revealed… Here’s the list: 7” Scale Action Figure – New Creature 7” Scale Action Figure – Xenomorph Deluxe Creature Accessory Pack Body Knocker – New Creature Head Knocker – New Creature Scaler – New Creature Photos will be posted in APRIL for the Xenomorph figure and AFTER THE MOVIE RELEASE for the New Creature."
