Toy Fair 2015: NECA

Feb 26 // Scarecroodle
Truth be told, I haven't always been the biggest fan of NECA's NES-inspired figure redecos in its Classic Video Game line. I also wasn't thrilled by this older-style Godzilla mold. So imagine my surprise when the two things combined to form a figure that absolutely floored me. I'm not sure why I love the NES Godzilla video game figure so much. I'm not nostalgic about the game (which I remember as being worse than caustic video game reviews like AVGN described), but this is by far the most appealing NES-inspired redeco I've seen so far. When (not if) I pick it up, it will also be the first NECA Godzilla collectible that I'll own. Another surprising NES-inspired design was the Gremlins 2 Mohawk.. although this one is interesting because it's a redeco of a figure that, as far as I know, was never released! The last time we saw "Machine Gun" Mohawk was at SDCC 2013. Shortly after that, we learned that NECA wasn't going to be moving ahead with some of its Gremlins lines due to poor sales (the mogwais were an exception since they apparently sold well enough to justify a fifth wave). As such, the MG Mohawk was apparently stuck in limbo (not unlike the Spider-Gremlin/Spider-Mohawk, which finally saw a release years after it premiered) so seeing it appear in a different deco was something of a shock. Given the status of the normal line, it makes some sense to recycle Mohawk into the Classic Video Game series since NECA already put work into the prototype and there are fans who wanted to buy the unreleased version. It's just something of a shame that we may never get the original version. (For fans who want a Mohawk figure in his normal colors, NECA released and then reissued a more basic version of the character years earlier. The figure (and its reissue) can be pricey on the aftermarket, however.) I vaguely recall liking the game, but I'll mostly be buying this one because I don't believe we'll see him in his glorious normal colors. Sack up, because it's a Big Planet for a Little guy. NECA has outdone itself with its Little Big Planet Sackboy figures, which includes a long-wanted Kratos sackboy! The Kratos sackboy is unbelievably cool news (I'd also like to a Nariko). Other cameo Sackboys include a Nathan Drake (Uncharted franchise) and Helghast (Killzone series). The figures seem to be the same size as NECA's mogwais figures which could make for a few neat displays. Offhand, I believe this is the first time that NECA has touched the Little Big Planet franchise. Previous holders included Mezco who, to be blunt, didn't do a great job. It's nice to see LBP collectibles that I actually want. Although I've rarely been able to get into Blizzard's games, I've always been into collectibles based on those properties. NECA did some awesome work with Diablo (and its blue variant) and looks to do the same with characters from Heroes of the Storm. Like the game, NECA's line features a mix of characters from Blizzard's other games. So far we've seen painted prototypes for  Illidan Stormrage (World of Warcraft), Nova (StarCraft), and Stitches (Warcraft). Also shown were the unpainted prototypes for Tyrael (Diablo) and Arthas (Warcraft). Will these be followed up by the Lost Vikings? And will the Vikings be sold together or separately? Only time will tell. The final object that caught my eye were the chibi "In Movie" replica figures from Pacific Rim. Having adapted pretty much everything else, NECA has apparently gone with some replicas of the tiny figurines seen in the film. Oh, plus the exo-suit from Aliens was on display. I vaguely recall seeing an image of it at an older con, but it wasn't with the Alien Queen during some more recent cons. Otherwise be sure to check out the gallery for all of the photos.

See some of my personal favorites after the jump.
