    NECA Experiments With 3 3/4" Scale

    Gears of War To Test New Figure Size Early Next Year...


    NECA, best known for their detailed 7-inch scale action figures, has announced plans to experiment with 3 3/4 inch starting with Gears of War early next year. Pre-orders at BigBadToyStore.com reveal this February 2013 assortment to include the same characters presented in the first 7" Gears of War 3 wave: Marcus, Baird and Carmine.

    NECA's Head of Product Development Randy Falk stresses that this 3 3/4" series will not replace their popular 7-inch action figure scale - including 7" Gears of War - stating that the 3 3/4" assortment "is an addition, an expansion. There is a new 7" Baird coming from Judgment as well. Both lines will coexist."

    NECA is looking at the possibility of testing another license in this new 3 3/4" scale, but no specifics have been announced. They have, however, ruled out 3 3/4" Predator, Randy Falk saying "No way we will do Predator at that scale. It's too tough to deco at 8" size. Going smaller is not a good idea for that license."

    So what are your thoughts on this new size? Is the thought of Gears of War characters co-mingling with your GI Joes and Star Wars figures a good thing? As long as we keep getting 7 inch figures, I'm all for the experiment.

    I have my doubts. For one I don't necessarily see a need for a 3 3/4 inch scale line of their already excellent 7 inch figures. If we already have them in 7 inch, why would we want them again, but even smaller? Collecting the same figures, but in a smaller scale, seems redundant to me. I'm also more disappointed in the fact they did so little with Gears 3, and having a smaller scale line coexist with their original line will surely only slow production on both ends. In my personal opinion I don't know why they've attempted to do this and I'm pretty sure the line will die young.

    Um....Because ALOT of people do not collect 7 inch figures. I myself only collect the 3 inch line. I think 7 inch figures suck. There I said it.

    I am SO going to buy these to use with MU line or whatever.
