NECA gives the DC Universe love with numerous Quarter Scale action figure releases. Man of Steel
leads the charge with Superman (Blue)
this August. Also in August, NECA will unleash their Adam West Batman
from the classic 60's TV series. NECA plans to complete the Dynamic Duo in 2014 with the release of Robin
. In DC movie news, the Quarter Scale Michael Keaton Batman
sees store shelves this September. A Ledger Joker
from The Dark Knight Returns
is also planned for 2014. Last but not least, a Quarter Scale Arkham Origins Batman
figure is slated for release in time for the holidays.
NECA' s first figure release - "First Blood" Rambo
- will be followed in August by "Survival" Rambo
(more details on this figure can be found HERE
). In 2014 fans will be treated to Stallone's character from Rambo II
fans will be pleased to know that September will see the release of the Motorized Patriot
(see our story HERE
). On display was an unpainted prototype, the BioShock Infinite "Heavy Hitter" packing a massive Pepper-Mill gatling gun. The figure will also feature two interchangeable heads (Washington and robotic) and two flags of Columbia on its back. While not shown at Comic-Con, NECA informed us that the game's main protagonist - Booker DeWitt
- is currently being worked on and is scheduled to arrive in time for the holidays.
NECA's awesome RoboCop ED-209
is arriving this September (see our story HERE
). In-scale with NECA's 7-inch scale RoboCop action figures, ED-209 measures in at 10-inches tall and features plenty of articulation, as well as movie accurate sounds and dialogue. NECA will re-release their most popular RoboCop figure - Spring-Holster RoboCop - in September so fans that missed out on him have a hero to battle ED.
NECA's fan-favorite line of Gremlins action figures continues to roll out. The massive Spider Gremlin
(see our story HERE
) was just recently announced and is due out this fall. Also coming this autumn (October) is the fourth series of Mogwais. A third wave of Gremlins was also shown, consisting of some of the most unique additions yet: Greta, a tattooed Gremlin with the "Warner" logo, Mohawk packing an Uzi, and very cool melting witch Gremlin. Unfortunately, sales of the cuddly Mogwais have always been stronger at retail then their more grotesque counterparts. Because of this, NECA is not sure if or when Gremlins Series 3 will see release. Keep your fingers crossed - who ever thought we'd get this far in the series?
THE LONE RANGER
While not the smash hit Disney had hoped for, fans are still loving NECA's Lone Ranger action figures. Following the release of the 7-inch scale Tonto and Lone Ranger in stores now will be a second series of the two in October. This assortment includes the Lone Ranger (Unmasked)
and his trusted Native American companion Tonto (featuring brand new birdcage accessory which can be placed over his head)
. 3 3/4" action figures of the pair with in-scale horses, each sold seprately, will see release around the same time the movie heads to home video this November.
NECA's license with the video game giant Valve continues on in 2013 with new figures from Portal 2
and Team Fortress 2
. Portal 2 will receive 7-inch scale action figures of the bumbling robot companions Atlas and P-Body
in September, while WizKids will be releasing a new assortment of mini Portal Turrets in August, followed by a very cool 8-inch DIY Portal Turret
in October. Team Fortress 2 gets Series 3 action figures of the Spy
