NECA Grabs George Romero's DAWN OF THE DEAD License

First 2 movie properties announced: T-shirts and action figures.

In exclusive news today, NECA informs us that they have been awarded the license by New Line Cinema to produce collectibles based on the 1978 apocalyptic horror classic George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead (see George Romero's DAWN OF THE DEAD License Up for Grabs).

Announced licensed product includes T-shirts (SRP of $14-$19.99. Release date to be decided.) and action figures. "Flyboy", pictured top as an early sculpt in progress, is the first confirmed figure. Look for him to join NECA's Cult Classics line sometime in 2006.

Expect more images of "Flyboy" - along with the debut of a second surprise "Dawn of the Dead" character - as the New York Fall Toy Fair approaches.
